Game Of Thrones 2019 Live: This is it. We’ve come to the finale. While many of our favourite characters and some of the decidedly less likeable ones have met their end, there are still plenty of plotlines that need to be resolved. We’re pretty sure that after *that* display of dragonfire and brimstone, Dany’s reign will not be a peaceful one. After all, she did incinerate most of King’s Landing, and gave her troops the go-ahead to not just sack the city, but also indulge in the slaughter of innocents.
As it stands, we can’t really gauge how many loyal troops she has left. We know the Unsullied, led by what can only be described as a rather unreasonable Greyworm, are loyal to the last man. The Dothraki too.
By now, ravens will have been sent to north, informing Sansa of the Mad Queen’s incendiary escapades. Will she rally the Northern houses, the Vale and Riverrun to participate in another Rebellion, like Ned and Robert did 21 years earlier? Could Dorne also join the cause? What of the Greyjoys?
Hopefully they’ll rally around the Lady of Winterfell. We like the sound of Sansa’s Rebellion, to be honest. Let’s hope she does it!
As for Arya, we’re pretty certain she’s going to take a stab at Dany, just like she did the Night King. She supposedly has one last set of eyes to close – will those green eyes be that of Daenerys Targaryen’s? Or is this one assassination attempt too many for our favourite dagger wielder? She’s not the only Stark in search of destiny.
This brings us to Bran. Is his role in the ‘Game of Thrones’ really done? Did it end at the Night King? Or is he going to influence the events of Westeros one last time?
We have our headcanon of thinking that Bran sent the horse that rescued Arya in the aftermath of King’s Landing’s destruction. Hopefully Bran leaves the series with a bang, rather than the whimper of the last two episodes, by finally becoming one with the weirwood tree in the Godswood.
Jon Aegon Stark Targaryen Snow, who ended the last episode in a haze of confusion, anger, betrayal and disbelief. And yes, definitely a bit of whimpering. Once this is all over he’ll have a right old selection of names to choose from.
But which one? Will he sit on the Iron Throne as a Targaryen? Will he lead the rebellion against the Throne and emerge as Jon Stark, King of the North? Or will Jon just destroy it and join the free folk beyond what is left of the wall, to live as a free man amongst the snow? We dearly want him to do the latter.
If Dany’s best impression of a barbecue roast isn’t enough to convince Davos and Tyrion to turn their backs on her, we don’t know what else will. Since we’re in the endgame now, all we want is for the both of them to go out in a manner befitting them, death or otherwise.
Davos? Go back to smuggling, Ser. Smuggle yourself out of there, live a peaceful life away from the disaster that is Westeros, we beseech you!
As for Tyrion, his conscience will probably dictate that he make one last Hail Mary (he’s done two in two episodes now) to convince Dany to stop the madness.
That probably means he’ll go out in a literal blaze much like his friend Varys – convicted of disobeying his Queen. The smallest character in ‘Game of Thrones’, burnt to a crisp by the largest. It sounds like a rather poetic death to us.
