This "Game Of Thrones" Theory Explains Why Varys Took Off His Rings And It's Bad News For Daenerys

Tell Dany. I want her to know it was me.

Hello Game of Thrones fans! It's been a few days since Season 8, Episode 5, "The Bells," and I still have a lot of questions — which is hilarious because I KNOW they're not all going to be answered by the end.

Anyway, one BIG question I had from "The Bells" was why Varys removed his rings before being executed for committing treason.

But then I started thinking about the theory that Varys was planning on poisoning Daenerys.

And then I thought, "WAIT, maybe Varys's rings actually contain poison and that's why he's removing them?!"

Because, remember, that's exactly how JOFFREY was killed — by poisoned jewelry.

For a quick refresher, Olenna (with Littlefinger's help) used a poisoned stone from Sansa's necklace to kill Joffrey at the Purple Wedding.

Basically, what I'm saying is that poisoned jewelry is very much a THING in Game of Thrones.

So, did Varys leave a poisoned ring behind for someone to use on Daenerys?

Either way, one thing's for sure — there are gonna be a lot of people coming for Daenerys in the series finale.
