The sky is falling! Jaina's gonna die!

We interrupt your regularly scheduled vignette to bring you: OMG! Mists of Pandaria! Garrosh! WTFBBQ!11111

So full lore theory speculation incoming! If you don't want "spoilers" then "Run away, little girl, run away!"

Per the press release posted on MMO-Champions: "The war between the Alliance and Horde heats up as they roll into Pandaria, and it will serve as a major battleground, but things get so gnarly and out of control, and war crimes are committed by one side, it begins to spiral into crazyville. The final patch of Mists of Pandaria will be the Siege of Orgrimmar! Both factions, for various reasons, lay siege to the city to bring Garrosh down and end his reign of Warchief."

Like everyone else, I'm reeling from this news. What could Garrosh possibly do to turn his own faction against him? There has been some speculation. Rades has put forth some fascinating ideas that include the return of Anub-arak at Orcish Army Knife.

After much thought and conversation between myself and my partner in WoW-crime, we've come to a conclusion. What we believe can be the only conclusion.

Jaina's gonna die. What could possibly motivate the Horde (orcs included) to remove the mantle of Warchief from him? Garrosh kills Jaina after the sack of Theramore. Only Thrall could rally the orcs to move against their leader, and Thrall would not sit idle as one of his good friends is killed.

I'm less than pleased by this theory, and I'm praying to the Old Gods that it might not be so. But all signs point to this end. It just makes sense.

My only hope now is that she goes out in a blaze of fabulous magic glory, as she truly deserves.
