It’s been two weeks since the conclusion of Game Of Thrones season 7. And all of us are just about surviving.

But while we wait, here’s a little something for GoT fans to mull their minds over. When it comes to forshadowing events, no TV series has done it quite like GoT, case in point being R + J = L.

But according to redditor razobak09, there’s a pattern that’s emerged with almost every major death in the series. And it all came together after Littlefinger’s death.

The redditor begins with Ned Stark who we first see when he uses his great sword, Ice, to behead a deserter of the Watch. Ned met his end when he was beheaded with his own sword.

Joffrey was the one who gave the order to kill Ned Stark. The King in turn was killed in a way that took away his ability to speak (though the redditor admits he stretched a bit for that one).


Tywin Lannister was the mastermind behind the Red Wedding where many Starks lost their lives to crossbow wielding musicians. He was killed by a crossbow.

Finally, Littlefinger betrayed Ned Stark by putting a knife to his throat, and his Valyrian Catspaw dagger was used in the assassination attempt on Bran’s life which he intentionally blamed the Lannisters for which sparked the whole Lannister-Stark conflict. Littlefinger was finally killed by having his throat slit by the Valyrian dagger that started the whole thing.
