The Simpsons are 'on fire' with a spot on GoT prediction
• The Simpsons predicting the ending of Game of Thrones a full two-years ahead of the highly-anticipated season finale
• Eagle-eyed Twitter fans provide comedy to otherwise disappointing GoT performance
• Is The Simpsons truly some kind of oracle, or was it dumb luck?
The only thing more enflamed than the capital of Westeros right now is perhaps the anger of the Game of Thrones community. Even if you’ve been slandering GoT before and lately for some continuity errors, you can’t doubt their continuity in releasing episodes that truly disappointed fans – nice job team!
Perhaps the one solace in 'The Bells' episode was the comedic parallel between The Simpsons and the Thrones' episode. The Simpsons, despite all its faults, still seems to have the magic when it comes to predicting the future, it’s something they’ve always been good at. Following the airing of The Bells, fans looked for any comfort they could and found it in a 2017 episode of The Simpsons called ‘The Serfsons’
The episode which aired two years ago is something of a Game of Thrones parody, and the only thing The Simpsons does more often than predict futures, is make parodies. The Twitter community pointed out how in ‘The Serfsons’, the lovable yellow family is overlooking a medieval village that is being burned to the ground by an angry dragon. Well done Simpsons family, well done writing team, you’ve done it again. Or is that really the case?
I wouldn’t call this moment as impressive as the likes of predicting Trump’s presidency 16 years early. I wouldn’t even call this a good guess on the sudden character-shift of the Dragon Queen… If you ask me, if you’re going to make a GoT parody, you’re going to want to see a couple angry dragons flying around, it’s bound to be written in. This ‘prediction’ is more of a coincidence really.
