15 TV Fan Theories Better Than What Actually Happened


Summary

  • Viewers’ fan theories often make more sense for characters than the actual storylines chosen by the series.
  • Controversial plots and out-of-character behavior can be more frustrating than the lack of mystery.
  • Devoted audiences often know the series better, making their theories more logical and sophisticated than the show’s storylines.


There is a tendency to come up with theories about certain shows and the direction they might take in the seasons to come, and there are quite a few instances when these theories have made a lot more sense for the characters than the direction the series has chosen to take. This is especially true when it comes to the show’s ending, as it often fails to live up to the expectations. Once upon a time, it was largely believed that Daenerys would be pregnant in Game of Thrones season 8 and that the show would end with Daenerys and Jon becoming parents, which couldn’t have been further from the truth.

More often than not, shows change their course as far away from expectations as possible to keep the mystery of what comes next. Unfortunately, that may result in controversial storylines and out-of-character behavior, two things that are even more frustrating than the lack of the so-called mystery. No one knows the series better than the people who watch it, which is why their theories can end up being more logical and sophisticated than the storylines of the show. For instance, Supernatural‘s Dean died quite a few times, but his final death wasn’t the ending the character deserved at all — there was a better one in store.

So much went wrong with Game of Thrones season 8, but nothing was more enraging than the botched storylines of Jon and Daenerys. Season 7 heavily hinted at the possibility of Daenerys getting pregnant with Jon’s child, which would serve as the perfect ending for both characters. Instead, in season 8, Daenerys randomly went on a killing spree, and Jon decided to kill her. The couple’s final storyline obliterated all the character development they’d had for seven seasons.

House, M.D. season 8 was riddled with inconsistencies, and quite a few characters’ decisions didn’t make much sense. Even the series finale where House faked his death to be with Wilson was a poorly thought-out move on House’s part. Considering that Wilson had less than a year to live, House would be on his own, jobless, and without a purpose in a few months. There was a theory that season 8 would be nothing more than House’s fever dream, caused by his guilt over crashing his car into Cuddy’s living room in the season 7 finale, “Moving On.” It would have perfectly explained House’s irrational decisions in season 8.

One of the best running gags in The Office was the Scranton Strangler. Despite all the build-up to the big serial killer reveal, a completely random character turned out to be the Scranton Strangler. However, there were a lot of clues suggesting Toby was the Scranton Strangler all along. From the color of his car and his mysterious disappearances to his guilt over putting an innocent man behind bars and his subsequent injury during the prison visit, Toby was the most likely suspect.

The Walking Dead’s zombie outbreak virus origin remained a mystery for years until it was finally disclosed in The Walking Dead: World Beyond‘s post-credits scene. As it turned out, the virus originated accidentally in a biomedical establishment in France. Prior to the discovery, there was an interesting theory regarding the cause of the apocalypse. The belief was that the people of the future essentially wanted to create a cure for death, but instead, they unleashed a deadly virus that killed the majority of the population. This would have been such an amazing plot twist that would have added meta layers to the story.

In Friends, Joey and Phoebe were the only two not to have found love within their friend group. Phoebe married Mike, and Joey was left on his own by the finale. However, throughout the show, there were multiple hints that Phoebe and Joey would be the endgame couple. They had the strongest chemistry, and there was a lot of history between them. In season 7, episode 14, “The One Where They All Turn Thirty,” Joey even gave Phoebe the perfect kiss. Sadly, this theory never developed into anything.

How I Met Your Mother‘s controversial finale saw Barney and Robin get divorced three years into the marriage because the writers wanted Ted and Robin back together. This ending didn’t sit right with the community, so there was always hope that somewhere along the line, Barney and Robin would have found their way back to each other. When How I Met Your Father was first announced, it seemed like this plot twist was a possibility, but nothing ever came of it. Both Barney and Robin appeared in the spinoff series, but there was nothing to suggest that they made up or were even in contact.

In That ’70s Show, Jackie and Hyde were the supreme couple, but they didn’t last. In season 8, Jackie and Fez suddenly developed feelings for each other and started dating. This couple’s entire existence seemed to be the writers’ desperate attempt to have one last plot twist. However, there was a theory that Jackie and Hyde made up sometime after That ’70s Show‘s finale. That ’90s Show did reveal that Jackie reconnected with her old fling, but unfortunately, it was Kelso, not Hyde.

Haley and Dylan were arguably Modern Family’s most frustrating couple, as they broke up more times than anyone cared to count, and they were wrong for each other personality-wise. Even when Dylan and Haley got back together for good and conceived a baby in season 10, the hope that Haley would realize that Dylan was beneath her didn’t fade. Unfortunately, in Modern Family‘s ending, Haley and Dylan remained together and even got their own apartment.

The Big Bang Theory’s power couple, Leonard and Penny, were famously childfree for the majority of the show, and Penny even expressed her reluctance to have children a few times on-screen. Leonard and Penny had a great marriage — they supported each other through thick and thin, and their lives were fun and fulfilling. There was an expectation that Penny and Leonard would keep their lifestyle in the years to come and become one of the rare examples of a happy childfree TV couple. To say that the finale that gave Penny a pregnancy storyline was infuriating would be an understatement.

As The Vampire Diaries season 8 approached and the stakes were raised, it became clear that Damon would be the one to receive the Cure, willingly or otherwise, because he was the love interest of the show’s protagonist. Still, Caroline and Stefan deserved a satisfying ending to their love story as well. There was a belief that Stefan, Caroline, and Damon would find a way to split the Cure. Instead, Stefan died in The Vampire Diaries’ series finale, putting an abrupt end to his and Caroline’s story.

Over the course of 15 seasons, Supernatural’s Sam and Dean suffered a lot of losses, and they deserved a happy ending more than anyone else. Despite the fact that the show implied that Dean would go out in a fight and Sam would live a long normal life, there was hope for a more suitable farewell for Dean. When Dean was briefly with Lisa and Ben, he realized that he could be happy away from hunting, and that was exactly what the series should have given him.

Cory and Topanga may have been the central couple in Boy Meets World, but Shawn and Angela were just as adorable. Shawn had a difficult childhood, and Angela was the light at the end of the tunnel for him. It was devastating when she decided to go to Europe with her father in season 7, episode 21, “Angela’s Ashes,” but it didn’t look like the end for her and Shawn. Angela and Shawn’s reunion was one of the most anticipated plot points for Boy Meets World‘s series finale, which never came to fruition.

Young Sheldon shed light on Sheldon Cooper’s family, and it was impossible not to fall in love with the characters, especially with Sheldon’s perky twin sister. Missy went through a lot, as growing up alongside Sheldon had never been easy. She was talented and driven, and she could have had a bright future. Sadly, The Big Bang Theory predetermined several characters’ fates, and Missy was one of them. There are dark days ahead of her, and nothing can be done to fix it without destroying the canon.

The Timeless Child remains one of the most divisive story arcs in Doctor Who. Not only did it destroy the 60-year-long history of the show, but it also made little sense altogether. When the Master first told the Doctor the horrifying truth about their past, it was possible to believe that the Doctor’s sneaky enemy was lying to suit their own agenda. This theory didn’t stand the test of time since in Doctor Who season 13, Tecteun, the explorer who found the Doctor, confirmed the Master’s information.

Scrubs season 9 was so bad that it was easier to pretend that none of it ever happened in real life. J.D.’s new charge, Katie, was a carbon copy of her mentor — they were too similar. J.D. was always known for his vivid imagination that frequently took over his life, so his season-long fantasy about Sacred Heart becoming a teaching hospital and Katie being his female alter-ego wasn’t too far-fetched. In the end, the events of season 9 turned out to be very real and had nothing to do with J.D.
