Game of Thrones fans were raging on Sunday evening as Daenerys Targaryen and her last remaining dragon unexpectedly burned Kings Landing to the ground, killing thousands of innocent men, women and children in the process.

But while the surprise development left many disgruntled viewers breathing a rather different type of fire, it would appear that the dramatic Game Of Thrones scene’s prediction was done two-years ago – in a very different show, The Simpsons.

The Simpsons Paid homage to Game Of Thrones

Fans of long-running humorous animated series The Simpsons will remember its characters paying homage to Game of Thrones in a 2017 parody of the fantasy-drama, titled The Serfsons.

The Simpsons prediction about #Madqueen in Game of Thrones can be seen in a 2017 parody of the fantasy-drama, titled The Serfsons.

The episode guided viewers out of The Simpsons’ contemporary setting and back to medieval Springfield, where Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie played the show’s incestuous subplots, destructive dragons and White Walkers for laughter.

But after watching Daenerys incinerate Kings Landing in her quest for the Iron Throne, fans were struck by its immediate similarity to a scene from The Serfsons, in which the family cheerfully watch as a marauding dragon reduces Springfield to ashes.

Taking to Twitter, one amazed fan raved: ‘Writers at The Simpsons, they got a crystal ball or something?!?!?’

While a third wrote: ‘WBanter: Titled The Serfsons, the episode took viewers back to medieval Springfield, where Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie played the show’s incestuous subplots, destructive dragons and white walkers for laughs ;everyone be damned they predicted the future again.’

Twitter Flooded with memes

It’s not the first time The Simpsons has inadvertently guessed the upcoming future, having previously predicted Donald Trump’s presidency, the Ebola crisis and Bengt Holmström winning the Nobel Prize.

In 2018 it also hinted at a greater level of cosmological link between physicists Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein, almost two decades before Hawking would die on the day that his German counterpart was born.

The eerie link was uncovered as producers aired the 1999 episode – entitled They Saved Lisa’s Brain – in which Hawking stars, as a tribute to his death.
