The theory: At some point, the hero Azor Ahai will be reborn “amidst smoke and salt” and wielding the flaming sword Lightbringer to defend the world from the “Other.” This may include plunging a sword into the heart of a loved one, to parallel the original legend. A number of people are suspected to be candidates for the second coming for Azor Ahai, including Jon Snow, Jaime Lannister, Gendry, Davos Seaworth, Danaerys Targaryen, Jorah Mormont, and even Ser Pounce.
Andy: This is definitely happening, it’s just a question of who it’ll be. Jon Snow is the obvious choice, (we did get that lingering shot of a “bleeding star” at his birth), but he’s a little too obvious. I don’t think Melisandre is suddenly going to be right this time around, since she’s blinded by her faith. My choice is Jaime, since I could see Lightbringer coming from him killing Cersei under the red star in the throne room. I’d put the likelihood at 8/10 for him.
Jenna: Azor Ahai is a thing in both the show and the books, so I feel like it’s got to be confirmed at some point that SOMEONE is the prince that was promised. My money is on Dany or Jon, or both of them. I know it’s obvious, but like R+L=J, sometimes the most obvious theory turns out to be true. This is all only if Ser Pounce isn’t found, of course. I’ll give 5/10 each for Dany and Jon, 10/10 meows for Ser Pounce.
