Welcome back to the 2015 ASOIAF 5-site Theory Poll! Part 1's results came out last week, and now we conclude the 2015 poll with part 2's results!

Caveat

As before, my original intent was to create images for each question. However, I decided to only sample some of the more interesting or popular questions with the highest variance or congruence in answers.

This time though, instead of going for 5 theories that show some of the more popular (or unpopular) theories or theories that display greater variance among the 5 fan-communities, I went for 9 theories that I found particularly fascinating.

Overall Data

For part 2 of the poll, I had roughly half the responses I had for part 1. Most likely, this is the result of poll fatigue (something that falls on me). However, the responses I did receive were really fascinating!

Overall, for part 2, I had 4,819 responses to the poll split across 5 fan communities to the tune of:

Sample Results

Here are some of the most fascinating results I found when collating results.

1. Is Jojen Paste real?

Jojen Paste is the theory that Bran Stark ate Jojen Reed in his last chapter in ADWD in order to gain magical greensight powers. This question found sharp divides among fan communities with /r/asoiaf having the highest "yes" votes and Westeros.org having the lowest.

3. Was Ser Duncan the Tall knighted by Ser Arlan of Pennytree?

Many people call this theory the R+L=J of Dunk and Egg. It's the most popular fan theory among people who have read the novellas. Most people do not think Dunk was knight by Ser Arlan of Pennytree, though seemingly, many have yet to read Dunk and Egg as well.

4. Where is the house with the red door located?

Earlier this year, GRRM hinted that there was something more at work the Red Door than was previously known. Still, a plurality/majority of all fans believe that the Red Door is located in Braavos.

5. Is the Ashford Theory true?

The Ashford Theory has it that Sansa's suitors will mirror Lady Ashford's suitors from The Hedge Knight. It was /r/asoiaf's choice for best new theory in 2014. However, most are unsure of whether this will pan out.

  • /r/asoiaf
    • Yes: 637 (27.8%)

6. What will happen to Jon Snow?

Jon Snow's fate after his stabbing at the end of ADWD is GRRM's most significant cliffhanger from the book. Jon's fate remains one of the most talked-about plot-points for TWOW and beyond. Most think Jon will inhabit Ghost's body and will be resurrected by Melisandre.

9. What is Stannis' final fate in the books?

This is my favorite result from all the questions posed. Stannis' fate was hotly contested before events from Game of Thrones, Season 5. However, events from the end of S05 shifted opinion substantially across fandoms.

  • /r/asoiaf
    • Killed in the Battle for Winterfell: 732 (31.5%)
    • Lord Commander of the Night's Watch: 537 (23.1%)

Shits and Giggles: The "Other" Responses

These are some of the answers that made me laugh or made me go "huh." Enjoy!

Who wrote the Pink Letter?

  • /r/asoiaf: Hot Pie, Read too many theories about this one, don't know what to think anymore
  • Watchers on the Wall: Bloodraven, Jon Snow, Littlefinger, Tormond Giantsbane
  • ASOIAF Facebook: Abel

Where is the house with the red door located?

  • /r/asoiaf: Future (bfish note: no idea what this means), does not exist, Not Bravoos, Seriously, this one needs to die, Tyrions POV as she gave birth to him
  • Westeros.org: false memory
  • Watchers on the Wall: Asshai - it's a memory from her past life as Amethyst Empress, probably Braavos. I am not sure it is important. She has been brainwashed by her brother and various boot-lickers and hanger-ons. All she remembers seems to be skewed

What will happen to Jon Snow?

  • /r/asoiaf: Catelynn ress no pov 100% crazy, They did the thing where someone else was jon snow, like what happened with the lord of bones, tis but a scratch - will warg into Ghost, Melisandre will try to resurect him but it won't work. beyond that, shrug
  • Westeros.org: Not dead,wounded will get up in berserker mode
  • Tower of the Hand: Resurrected by wildlings
  • Watchers on the Wall: Full-on tinfoil: the wizard Samwell Tarly glass candle's a miracle out of his arse. I hope GRRM has a better way out of the corner he painted himself into than the above four options, Wun Wun was stabbed, not Jon

Who will face Ser Robert Strong in Cersei's Trial by Battle?

  • /r/asoiaf: #THEBOWLISREAL, Arthur Dayne, CLEGANE BOWL GET HYPE, High Sparrow, GET HYPE (bfish note: about 30 variations of this answer)
  • Tower of the Hand: A Golden Man and a Snarling Dog (Jamie & Sandor) per Bran's very first green dream in aGoT, Dornish, Lady Tyene Sand
  • Watchers on the Wall: The show creaters have confirmed it will be the brother assumed to be the hound (bfish note: They have?)
  • ASOIAF Facebook: Euron takes KL before any trial starts

What is Stannis' final fate in the books?

  • /r/asoiaf: Assassinated by another contender for the throne (poetic justice for King Renly!), Dead fo sho, but not by any of these means, Killed by Brienne of fucking Tarth
  • Westeros.org: Died in the cold on the way to Braavos, stannis is a dolt, don't really care
  • Tower of the Hand: An unfortunae meaningless death. His destiny is to meet a tragic end
  • Watcher on the Wall: killed by Davos as an act of kindness, Valar morghulis
  • ASOIAF Facebook: He will die under suspicious curcomstaces...

Conclusion
