The main reason I don't really believe this theory, at least with regards to the show is that there's been no foreshadowing of the island. I think it was only mentioned once.


But if that was their destination the story could go in several directions. I'd probably want to kill off the children if I were them.
Personally I would say "nuts" to that theory.

This comment seems to have been pulled out of the reddit users behind:

“The writers have dropped hints about the Gods Eye for years and have always discussed the Riverlands with great detail.”

Uh... no


Then there is this piece of rectum based supportive evidence:

"“Eastwatch by the Sea [the location the Night King destroyed during the finale] is the closest part of the wall to the Gods Eye."

Uh...

Re: Season 8 theory thread

His arguments are certainly poor. As you state they certainly haven't been hinting at it. They probably mentioned the isle in the first season and not at all since then. they've recently brought up the children again, in the cave. But that has nothing to do with the isle.

Looking at the map, there really isn't a huge difference in terms of distance from the wall to the isle. but castle black probably would have been a shorter route and the Shadow tower would have been even shorter given the landmasses.

I always found the isle fascinating in the books, but the show has clearly ignored it.

My season 8 theory: quality of writing will continue to deteriorate in lockstep with my interest in watching.

At least several people with plot armor will die in the final season. But beyond that, it will just be an action packed cliff notes version of the story. I think it's actually pretty hard to get worse than Season 7 though.

Re: Season 8 theory thread

I'm still trying to figure out what George plans to do with the WW's and their motivations. Maybe they have prophecies of their own and started moving south again after a specific moment occurred. I don't see George simply using them as a force of evil but who knows.

What if they simply want their humanity back and know they have to fight to reach the Isle of Faces? They hit wildling populations, including hardhome, to significantly increase their army and then move south.

The show gives possible hints that he knew Dany would come. But things in the books may not occur like that at all. maybe they will make a push for the horn or maybe once they touched Bran and he went south, they were now able to go south.

Another possibility is that the WW's made a deal all those years ago just before the wall went up. Then something happened that broke the deal.

The show's WWs are definitely not consistent with their descriptions in the book. The show has also chosen to ignore the story of the Night's King, his WW wife or the Nightfort. The show has pretty much ignored the epic mystery of the Isle of Faces.

I'm still holding out hope that the war with the WW's will not be won by force of arms. Either they will discover what the WW's want and let them have it or Jon and company will make some sort of deal/sacrifice. Those seem to be more likely as an endgame George would write.

When George discusses a bittersweet ending, it makes me wonder if he means like LOTR in that all magic will have to leave the world and many of our favorite characters no longer will fit in.
