#GameOfThrones Predictions: What came true and what didn’t in season seven

With Game of Thrones season seven completed, let’s hold me accountable for the predictions I made along the way.

Episode 1: Dragonstone Predictions

Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere Review

Prediction 1: Jon Snow makes problems in Winterfell

“Jon Snow as mining industrial dictator is going to cause problems, as is Jon Snow the king of equality”

Jon barely spent any time in Winterfell during season seven. He was nearly everywhere else, but rarely home.

Verdict: WRONG

Prediction 2: Littlefinger vs Sansa & Jon

“I look forward to watching Littlefinger (my favourite character on the entire show) try to fan the flames of a divide between Sansa and Jon.”

See above. Jon wasn’t in Winterfell long enough for this one to come true.

Verdict: WRONG

Prediction 3: Cersei & Jamie split

“The death of Jamie’s children falls almost entirely at Cersei’s feet. I’d love to see her relationship with Jamie broken and Jamie turn against her.”

This might be more of a wish than a prediction, but I’m going to label it the later and channel my inner Politifact to call it half-true. We know their relationship is broken and that they have in fact split but we’ll have to wait and see if he turns against her.

Verdict: Half-true.

Prediction 4: Ed Sheeran ruins everything
“We all know that was Ed Sheeran. And it ruined everything.”

Verdict: ACCURATE

Episode 3: The Queen’s Justice Predictions

Game of Thrones Season 7: The Queen’s Justice Recap

Game of Thrones: 5 Thoughts From The Queen’s Justice

Prediction 1: Foreshadowing Jon Snow’s demise

““Stark men don’t fare well when they travel south,” Tyrion reminds him. Foreshadowing? Jon about gets clipped by a dragon seconds later. Foreshadowing?”

This line came early in The Queen’s Justice and didn’t reach full prediction level by me, but there’s no doubt I laid down a marker for if something does go wrong for Jon in the south.

[Editor’s note: This prediction holds despite the revelation that Jon does not have Stark blood.]

Verdict: Too soon to tell

Prediction 2: Cersei loses Jamie

“Plus, if she’s not careful she’s going to lose Jamie. Wouldn’t that be something – Jamie as the character who killed a king and abandoned a queen.”

See prediction three above, except with this one we can give it a full true because there was nothing about him turning against her.

Verdict: ACCURATE

Episode 4: The Spoils of War Predictions

Game of Thrones: 5 Observations & 2 Predictions From “The Spoils of War”

Prediction 1: Petyr feels the cut of his own dagger
“Prediction: Littlefinger is going down, to the Valyrian steel dagger.”

Verdict: FRICKING NAILED IT

Prediction 2: Jamie switches sides
“Prediction: Jamie switches sides in the biggest betrayal of the entire series, driving Cersei even further over the edge.”

I seem to have made this prediction a lot. With the benefit of hindsight, this prediction was probably too much for this season. Jamie turning against Cersei is a story for ending the series, which they certainly set up for in season seven.

Verdict: Too soon to tell

Episode 5: Eastwatch Predictions

Game of Thrones: Eastwatch Recap & 1 Prediction

Prediction 1: Dany would capture Jamie

“My prediction that Dany would capture Jamie from the water and Tyrion would flip him to their side didn’t even make it past the opening scene.”

I think they cheapened the show’s treatment of cliffhangers with how quickly they resolved Jamie’s fate, but he’s already been held captive once in the story so this was, in hindsight, a stupid prediction.

Verdict: Fail

Prediction 2: Cersei has little Tyrions

“My prediction is twins and they’re both afflicted with a malady that leaves her with her own little Tyrions.”

This one had no chance of being resolved during season seven, so we’ll have to wait.

Verdict: Too soon to tell

Episode 6: Beyond The Wall Predictions

Game of Thrones Finale Prediction

Prediction 1: Arya already killed Petyr

Heh. Oops. Arya would kill Petry, but she hadn’t done it yet.

Verdict: Wrong

Let’s go to the scoreboard…

11 total predictions
4 totally wrong
1 half-true
2 accurate
3 too soon to tell

We’ll keep track of the remaining predictions when season eight airs. Whenever that is.
