The Simpsons took foreshadowing to a whole another level after they predicted the King's Landing twist pretty accurately two years ago.
SPOILER ALERT -- If you haven't watched 'Game of Thrones' penultimate episode yet, we strongly recommend stop reading.
However, if you have seen the second last episode of the epic fantasy series, you would probably have had just one reaction throughout the episode. And it would have been somewhere along the lines of "WHAT ON EARTH WAS THAT". Don't worry, you are not the only one feeling that way. But here's an interesting story that has indeed taken foreshadowing to a whole another level.
And as you have may guessed, it comes from none other than The Simpsons. And this is not the first time that the iconic show has predicted something in the past and it turned out to be true! But this time, the long-running animated comedy series predicted a major twist in Game of Thrones -- almost two years ago -- and fans are honestly losing it! As reported by CBS News.
During the fifth episode of the eighth season, fans witnessed something that they would have never imagined -- the burning of King's Landing! The wrath of fury instigated by Daenerys Targaryen and her beloved dragon on the people of King's Landing shook one and all. In her quest to rule over the Seven Kingdom, Khaleesi made sure the entire city was reduced to ashes.
However, if you are a Simpsons fan, this iconic scene may have just reminded you of a similar scene in the animated show. Yes, there was actually a 2017 Simpsons episode parodying Game Of Thrones which had some fiery similarities to last Sunday's episode.
The season 29 premiere of 'The Simpsons' titled "Serfsons" showed how Lisa was forced to use illegal magic when Marge's mother is turned into an "Ice Walker". But it was at the end of the episode in which there's a scene of Homer, Marge, Lisa, and Bart looking on from a hill as a red dragon breathes fire onto a town -- very similar to how Drogon left the city in flames.
Ever since fans noticed this uncanny similarity between the two shows, they took to Twitter to express how The Simpsons were able to accurately nail this plot point in the Thrones episode. A Twitter user said: They didn’t predict the future. Like GRRM, the writers ran out of ideas and said “that’s just as good a plot line as any. Let’s make it happen. They stole the idea from The Simpson’s.
I bet that Simpsons episode was better than the GOT episode.— George (@George51910248) May 14, 2019
Meanwhile, another added: Isn’t it funny that the Simpsons get this right every time? Could someone in their production have access to an Alternate Quantum Dimension. Visiting two realities at the same time?
And if you are wondering what other major events The Simpsons had predicted correctly, the show foreshadowed Donald Trump becoming president of the United States, Lady Gaga's Super Bowl performance and Team USA's curling team earning gold in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Now we don't know how The Simpsons manage to do this so often -- but let's see if they have already foreshadowed the finale episode of Game of Thrones. You never know, you may have already seen it on your favorite animated show!
