3. The Power of Warging and the Dire Wolf
Even though Snow is presumed dead, we know that he can warg into his dire wolf, Ghost, and survive for a while longer. In the show, we only see Snow laying against the cold ground as the blood spreads around him, but in the book, Snow utters one last word, something that must be on his mind as he fades into the darkness: Ghost. Is it possible we will see his eyes turn white as he enters his second life through the dire wolf?

4. The Lord of Light and the Resurrection of Azor Ahai

Azor Ahai is a legendary figure thought to wake dragons from stone and reforge his great sword, Lightbringer to defeat the darkness and the Others. Forged with the blood and spirit of his wife, Nissa Nissa, legend has it that “There will come a day after a long summer when the cold breath of darkness falls heavy on the world. In this dread hour, a warrior shall draw from the fire a burning sword. And that sword shall be Lightbringer, the Red Sword of Heroes, and he who clasps it shall be Azor Ahai come again, and the darkness shall flee before him.”
Milisandre, the Red Lady, told Stannis that he was chosen to lead as per the legend of Azor Ahai. Stannis was obviously not the legend’s hero, since he died at the hands of Jamie Lannister. At one point, she looks into the fire to ask the God of Light, R’hllor to see Azor Ahai and sees a strange vision. She responds, “I pray for a glimpse of Azor Ahai and R’hillor shows me only snow.” A double-meaning, perhaps? Furthermore, she just so happens to be conveniently located at the Wall at the close of the finale to complete her blood magic rituals and revive Snow just like Beric Dondarrion, and make this legend a reality.
