    It would be cool to see a couple main characters flee to Essos while Cersei and Danny are killed by White-Walkers while fighting for the Iron Throne of Westeros. Maybe Theon kills Euron to reclaim the ships and comes to an allegiance with Jon to ferry people across the Narrow Sea where the White-Walkers can't reach. If you think about it Danny was Queen of Essos and could have made her own Iron Throne but left it all to sail to claim Westeros? Thor Ragnarok concept that Night King is unstoppable and inevitable.

    The Lannisters didn’t kill Jon Arryn. They were framed for it by Lisa and Littlefinger, who killed him for ‘love’ (actually to incite a war so Littlefinger could gain more power or even the throne).

    The show is predictable in a good way. It is not true that "anyone" can die, everyone has a motive and interact with everyone in a narrative stand point. They just make you believe that someone is protagonist when in fact, they are not.

    There's just one thing you need to remember.
    Most of the GOT prophecies has come true. And there's one prophecy called "The Prince that was promised"
    or better known as the "Warrior of the light"
    John Snow is Aegon, "The prince that was promised"
    If I had to guess an ending to GOT I'd bet that Aegon stands with a sword of fire on top a pile of white walkers.

  • Kaitlyn DeFrench

    The one thing I disagree with about this video/theory is that there are four major houses, not three. The title sequences have always been clear and the main logo of the series is very clear, Baratheon is a major house as well. They exhibited the three characteristics described in the video as well, and technically, there is one left, Gendry. It is a four house battle, not three.

    Or it could end with some kind of unity being achieved. That would fit just as well with the themes you've pointed out; people could actually learn their lesson as opposed to dying because they're stubborn to the end.

  • Arashoon

    hum... isn't it Petyr Baelish the one who poisoned Jon Arryn? I mean thats litterally the reason why he was executed without trial by Aria, would suck for him if it was indeed the Lannister who poisoned Jon instead of Petyr. I would also argue that its Cercei who gave the power to the high sparrow, to get rid of the tyrell, but karma came back hit her ass when the high sparrow then turned his head to her after. For Syrio, the way he knocked out all the lannister guard but one with a wooden sword, I think its more the fact he had only a wooden sword that make him lost his 1 vs 1 vs Meryn Trent. For Robb, I think its love that kill him, not pride, he met a woman which he love and wanted to marry her despite his word, which he break to marry her. I dont think it qualify as pride to break your word to marry the woman you truly love. For the night watch, I think its hatred that caused them to die, they tought letting the wildling come inside the wall would cause them to fall, but I dont think they were overly confident to their ability to fight off the wildling, they were not even 300, Jon even lied about being a thousand and a thousand thats not a big number against 100k wildling. Also its unlikely to mankind to all fall, only westeros would fall, otherwise when Jon Snow faced the night king in his boat fleeing from him, if he can send his dead army in water he would have done so against Jon boat. And his dragon, Daenaris got 2 of them so I think the dragon of the night king could be dealt during the westeros fight before he have turn his eye to others islands.

    It'd be nice if the walkers do win and either get rid of humanity in Westeros, at least for a time, then die since their purpose was completed, or just get rid of society as it is, but leave survivors which will rebuild, then test them again years later to see if this society is any different, if they have learned anything. If so, then their purpose is again complete, but I doubt it'll happen. Most likely Jon and Daenerys will win and they'll reform Westeros enough that it's now a decent place, and they either get rid of the walkers or the walkers don't see them as a threat anymore.

  • Chaz Fatur
    Chaz Fatur Day ago

    I agree to the point that 'No One' should rule and a Democracy should be installed. So maybe George Bush can sit on the throne! But if someone has to, if only one person must, then I feel it's Jon Snow, aka Aegon Targaryen, the rightful heir to the Throne, not Daenerys. So it will be interesting to see how Jon takes the news and what he does with it. Then if he reveals it, how will Dany take it? She's so damned obsessed with the throne, that what Samwell says is true, Jon gave up his crown to save his people, can Daenerys do the same?

    • Chaz Fatur
      Chaz Fatur Day ago

      And you're tying this in to become an earlier version of Geological Themed show. Man ruins Earth, Earth fights back. You stated that Man created the Night King, no they did not, the Children of the Forest did to fight against Man. So they took a Man and created the Night King. Rightly so, because this particular Man loved a White female. And some say that's all the Night King wants, his bride back. She's in the crypts of Winterfell. It may all end there. We have 5 more Eps to find out... Stay tuned!

    • Chaz Fatur
      Chaz Fatur Day ago

      But same token, yes the Whites well outnumber the Living. But as we saw previously, you take out a Leader of a group, the followers fall too. So if the Night King falls, ALL of the whites will too, so it won't matter about numbers. But will this happen? The only skillful fighters to take him down is Jon Snow, Bron of the Blackwater and maybe lefty Jaimie 'The King Slayer' Lannister!

  • Asturianix98

    What would be interesting is... What does the White Walkers want? To rule the 7 kingdoms? That doesnt make sense.
    What if their motivation is TO PUNISH humanity for not being worthy of ruling the world.
    Like if the true God decided to design a challenge to see if humans truly could redeem themselves and work together for a better world? And in case they couldnt... Well, goodbye.

    That ending would make the most sense honestly, but Jon Snow's heritage is too important, he is literally ice and fire. so I think he is the key to all of this.

    • NoseKey

      I predict: Night King attacks kings landing first, wipes out Cersei, Gold Cloaks and Euron completely from the picture.
      Jon Snow and Sansa barely survive the small attack on Winterfell (Bran and Aria die). They all storm Kings Landing and fight their way to the throne room. Daenyris sacrifices herself: showing she was a good person who would die for her people all along. Jon kills the Night King - destroying all white walkers. He becomes the ruler of the Iron Throne with Tyron as his advisor and Sam helps write the history of events of Game Of Thrones.

I'm sure you've read the books and seen the show. Euron is a POS but gd is the guy a go getter. Every single thing Euron has set out to do in book and show he has done! Point blank period! Euron (with help from the Ironborn the toughest and most loyal people ever) is gd Cthulhu in human form.

    Not my boy Stannis.
    Stannis IS the elder brother. He should be king. He doesn't want to, but he feels that it is his responsibility. Renly is ready to murder HIM for the throne but gets the short end of the stick - that's not Stannis fault.
    And he didn't kill his daughter - that's just the show. In the book he is almost singular as a parent in his desire to see her live: When other victims of greyscale are just abbandonned, he spares no expense to seek for a cure far and wide, eventually at least halting the progress of the illness. He also sticks around his crazy wife and doesn't kick her lunatic butt out.
    The guy is a saint.

    The problem i see in this theory is that its way to easy to kill the white walkers in theory you just need to kill the night king and they all die but also we dont know how many secrets Westeros even has the whole human masks thing is just discovered by Aria no one really knows about it,people can revive the dead,so many secret powerfull things you never know what might be lurking around and wont let the night king rule if the houses fail(which we know will not happen bc its a series after all)
