With Game of Thrones Season 7 over, the anticipation for the final season is getting high, but it's going to be a long wait before it premieres on HBO.

There's a lot of questions we want answered, especially regarding the Night King and his army of the undead. Why are they marching South? Is it just to kill all the humans in Westeros? There's probably more to it than that.

However, Redditor twerkmileyyy may have figured out an answer: "I predict the Night King is going directly to the Gods Eye," a Redditor wrote.


God's Eye is the mysterious lake in the heart of the Riverlands. At the lake's center is the Isle of Many Faces, the place where the Children of the Forest (Those who created the White Walkers) made a pact with the First Men.

"Ultimately I think his end goal is to reach the Isles of Faces and use its magical properties to give life to his undead army," he added.

"Eastwatch by the Sea [the location the Night King destroyed during the finale] is the closest part of the wall to the Gods Eye. Harrenhall is on the northern shore of the Gods Eye. The writers have dropped hints about the Gods Eye for years and have always discussed the Riverlands with great detail," the Redditor explained.

In Season 1, Tywin mentioned The God's Eye when he named Tyrion Hand of the King. Tywin eventually goes to Harrenhal, which is found close to the lake.

So what do you think about this theory?

Earlier this month, some fans found some details that support the other theory that claims Bran Stark is actually the Night King.

Game of Thrones Season 8 is set to premiere by either late 2018 or early 2019.
