The recent season finale for HBO’s Game of Thrones did its usual job of shocking viewers who maybe thought they had the whole thing figured out. By this point, even book readers are likely to be a little shocked since the show has more or less used up all the material George R.R. Martin had published officially to date, with changes made and some characters (Lady Stoneheart for example) being completely omited.
But Martin has said there are two more novels to come, and while The Winds of Winter may be finished next year (or it may not), the books do have a number of unsolved mysteries left to be explored.
After the cut, I’m going to write up 15 unsolved mysteries from the novel series. I’m not ranking them. That’s for other people. The list is no doubt not exhaustive either.
Obviously, there are MAJOR SPOILERS below the cut, and some of the mysteries listed may be true for the show as well. You’ve been warned.
