|Daenerys Targaryen, HBO|
My family doesn’t care about GOT so I’m bragging into the electronic abyss. Indulge me while I go back over a few quotes from my previous posts.
• “Daenerys turns mad queen and Jon/Aegon fulfills the Azor Ahai prophecy by killing her. He disappears beyond the ruins of the wall and lives with the wildlings in a harsh environment that satisfies his need for constant conflict. Sansa stays at Winterfell with the other Starks as the Queen in the North.”
• “With just 80 minutes left to wrap things up, I’m going with my alternate theory: no one takes the throne. All this time, everyone wanted to see who ended up on the Iron Throne. The promos for this season showed each of the main characters sitting on the darn thing. After all of this, I think the throne will be destroyed or hidden away somewhere and each nation will choose their own ruler. No more Game of Thrones.” (SO CLOSE!)
• “The ending that would make the most sense to me would be Jon stabbing Dany and disappearing, Frodo-style, into the snow beyond the wall. I don’t know about Drogon. Maybe he’ll just disappear too.”
Individual character predictions:
•Daenerys: “She’s going down and I think Jon/Aegon will be the one to do it.” I never bought that Arya theory.
•Jon Snow: “My guess for Jon is a return to the frozen north (alone) or a heroic death at a crucial moment in the finale.” At least we got to see a happy ending for Ghost!
•Tyrion: “While he might make an amazing king, he doesn’t have the support he needs to take and hold the throne. He’ll probably survive the series, but I doubt he’ll be anything more than a member of the small council.” Bingo.
•The Hound: “Sandor would get slaughtered by that monster (Gregor) if they went toe to toe.” “It would definitely be satisfying to see her (Arya) show a little warmth and forget about her blasted list. Sandor’s on it, you know. Killing him would make her a heartless little savage. I’m hoping for a touching Houndrya moment that also wipes out zombie Mountain.” Yep. I hate that he died, but I knew that fight would kill him if he went for it.
•Sansa Stark: “In the very beginning, Sansa dreamed of marrying Joffrey, BECOMING QUEEN, and having children. The show started with her poised to be the future queen. I think it’d be a neat twist to finish up with her seeing that dream come true. Of course, it’s unrealistic. The North loves her, but I’m pretty sure she has no legitimate claim to the Iron Throne.” Queen of the North!
•Varys: “Melisandre said he’d die in Westeros and I really hope she meant he’d die in his sleep of natural causes a long, long time from now.” So disappointed.
