GoT Fan Found The Hidden Pattern In All The Show’s Deaths & It’s Shocking

Death and murders aren’t anything new on Game of Thrones.

Neither are theories relating to the show. However, one Redditor presented a theory in which he explained that all the deaths in Game of Thrones are linked.

And when you read it, you’ll realise he’s right. It’s a Karma thing, actually.


How, you ask? Well, see, there’s a pattern in all their deaths. How a character killed others was how they themselves died. For example, Roose Bolton killed Robb Stark with a knife to the heart; he was murdered by a knife to the heart. Olenna Tyrell killed Joffrey with poison; she was executed with poison. And so on.

Here is razobak09‘s theory:

Characters who were killed in the same or similar fashion as in their most infamous moments. In no particular order:

  • Ned Stark used his greatsword Ice to behead the Night’s Watchman; he was beheaded with his own sword.
  • Joffrey gave the command to execute Ned; he was killed in a way that took away his ability to speak. (I reached pretty far for this one, I’ll admit)
  • Tywin ordered the Red Wedding, where numerous Stark men were killed by crossbow-wielding musicians; he was killed by a crossbow.
  • Roose Bolton killed Robb Stark with a knife to the heart; he was killed by a knife to the heart.
  • Walder Frey ordered Catelyn Stark’s throat cut at the end of the Red Wedding; he had his throat cut by Arya.
  • Ramsay Bolton was fond of feeding people to his hounds; he was fed to his own hounds.
  • The Sand Snakes were each killed in a way that mirrored their own style: Nymeria was strangled by her own whip, Obara was impaled with her own spear, and Tyene was killed by her favorite poison. 
  • Olenna Tyrell killed Joffrey with poison; she was executed with poison.
  • Littlefinger betrayed Ned Stark by putting a knife to his throat, and the Valyrian Catspaw Dagger was used in the attempt to have Bran Stark assassinated, which he intentionally blamed on the Lannisters, sparking the Lannister-Stark conflict. He was executed by having his throat cut by the Valyrian Catspaw Dagger.
  • Edit: changed the wording about Bran’s attempted assassination.Are there any more that I haven’t thought of? 


The Redditor asked for other ideas, and the comments didn’t disappoint. He later edited the post and added more:

Edit 2: Some of the best ones from the comments!

  • Jon killing his Night’s Watch brother Qhorin Halfhand; he was later killed by his Night’s Watch brothers.

  • Ygritte killed many people with arrows; she was killed with an arrow.

  • Polliver killed What The Fuck Salami with Needle through the throat; Arya killed Polliver in the same fashion.

  • Lysa Arryn loved throwing people through the Moon Door; she was shoved through the Moon Door.

  • The One True King Stannis the Mannis killed his brother by way of his female assistant; he was later killed by his brother’s female assistant.

  • Lastly, Tywin gave Tyrion shit his entire life, literally making him in charge of all the sewers of Casterly Rock; Tyrion killed him on the shitter. 

Even though there’s just one season left to the show, the fans just can’t get enough of it. Rightfully though, since the discoveries are endless. Good going, Redditors!
