Game of Thrones Fan Theory Says Jorah Mormont is Azor Ahai

With Game of Thrones coming to its final conclusion in just a few weeks, fans are seemingly coming up with more theories than ever about what the show's ending will reveal. One question on everyone's mind is whether or not Westeros will be saved by The Prince That Was Promised, a.k.a. Azor Ahai. One theory posted on Reddit suggests that Jorah Mormont could actually be the reincarnation of the last hero to save Westeros.

Ever since Melisandre predicted the coming of Azor Ahai back in season 2, it has been a popular topic of speculation, with characters like Jon Snow and Daenerys as front runners in many theories. However, this theory brings an entirely different character into play—and it sort of makes sense.

Jorah was given Samwell Tarly's family sword, Heartsbane, in "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," season 8's second episode. That's where this Reddit theory by user Severian_of_Nessus comes in. As the Redditor explains:

"The name of the sword is Heartsbane, which has a dual meaning. The first is obvious—it's a badass name to strike fear in the hearts of foes. But it has a second meaning, which can be inferred from the curious wording in one of Bran's visions."

The Redditor then adds in the dialogue from Bran's vision:

"And he looked past the wall, past endless forests cloaked in snow, past the frozen shore and the great blue-white rivers of ice and the dead plains where nothing grew or lived. North and north and north he looked, to the curtain of light at the end of the world, and then beyond that curtain. He looked deep into the heart of winter, and then he cried out, afraid, and the heat of his tears burned on his cheeks."

The theory continues, arguing that "Like many things regarding magic and history in the books, the true meaning of the sword's name has been distorted and lost over time. It is not the bane of human hearts, but of winter."

While it is a surprising theory, it could come to fruition. At this point, anything is on the table when it comes to the Game of Thrones finale.

Before you go out and spend hundreds—if not thousands—of dollars on a new mattress, you may want to turn to Amazon. According to Esquire, one of the most comfortable mattresses on the market isn’t from Tempur-Pedic, Casper, or IKEA. It’s a budget mattress you can buy on Amazon for as little as $102.

Linenspa's 8-inch memory foam and innerspring hybrid mattress has more than 24,000 customer reviews on Amazon, and 72 percent of those buyers gave it five stars. The springs are topped by memory foam and a quilted top layer that make it, according to one customer, a “happy medium of both firm and plush.”

Perhaps because of its cheap price point, many people write that they first purchased it for their children or their guest room, only to find that it far exceeded their comfort expectations. One reviewer who bought it for a guest room wrote that “it is honestly more comfortable than the expensive mattress we bought for our room.” Pretty impressive for a bed that costs less than some sheet sets.

Getting a good night's sleep is vital for your health and happiness, so do yourself a favor and make sure your snooze is as comfortable as possible.

The mattress starts at $102 for a twin and goes up to $200 for a king. Check it out on Amazon.
