    The Lannisters didn’t kill Jon Arryn, it was his wife who poisoned him

    In a sense, this theory holds up pretty well. The title of kings are no longer passed down trough generations, most houses continue to operate as a unit, and most importantly, Cersei dies.

    Well so your telling me Jamie Cersei Sandor Gregor Daenerys Jorah Lyanna Ed Theon Euron Beric Catelyn Joffrey Mace Tommen Mace Margery Kingsguard Stannis are all dead well based on this it seems like the characters that died have done something bad in their life excepts for Lyanna Ed and Sandor Tommen Mace.

    I thought that this was a horrible idea... until I saw the actual Season 8. Now it's genius.

    They forgot to mention that targaryeons (don't care to spell the name) dragons we're both killed by her pride.
    I liked how it began with the starks and ended with the starks. I wish film theory would re analyze that from that perspective.
    I liked how the story ended because the most honorable became the leaders. They did their best to be honorable.
    Jon snow was against killing for power and ruling out of fear. You see that displayed in early episode.
    The themes I see are honor in an un-honorable world. Love between family. And to rule out of respect. Not fear.
    Starting out with Jon snow.
    He didn't want to become any leader. But people respected him.
    Targaryeon decided to rule out of fear when him snow wouldn't marry her or be with her. And she did. She struck fear into many when she burned everyone alive.
    The change is subtle but her turning into the mad queen reveals itself slowly throughout the series.
    Back to Snow. He was against killing for power (not in battle) and ruling out of fear. Hence aryas warning. " I know a killer when I see one"Aryas talking about killing for power. Assinating. Not in battle.
    So Jon Snow was conflicted. Not only did he love Tagaryeon. But he did not want to assasinate. It goes against his morals. But if he didn't kill her she would've been the new mad queen. For certian.
    Even her dragon didn't burn stark for killing targaryeon. The dragon burned the throne which drove it's mother mad.
    Snow explains he regrets for his actions.
    I like hiw it ends because it ensures peace among all the lands. Because the stark family loves and respects eachother.
    Snow is probably going to become leader of the far north. Sansa is queen of the north. Brahn is the king and arya is most likely going to become a leader in uncharted lands.
    I like the entire series because they killed off most of the honorable family. (And the starks we're honorable for the most part).
    That led you to believe ANYTHING could happen lol
    So you went on this ride of a story.and it was exciting.
    But cleverly, it ended well. Ended were it began with the starks. It was a happy ending with the most possible way for peace.
    I kind of suspect that a lot of people might've been distracted with T and A to understand the full story lol

      I also want to mention that the battle against the white walkers was so stressful lol I don't get how people are disappointed.
      I honestly the white walkers had a chance to win so I was freaking out.
      I thought for sure many of my fav characters died.
      It was a frightening battle. And it displayed how the entire world would be engulfed if they lost.
      That battle was for the world. Because if the white Walker's won that one. There would be no chance for the rest of the world.
      That's what made it is frightening.
      And there was literal raining bodies and blood.
      I don't know about you all but that episode was stressful.
      I was relieved with the characters when that war ended. Lol

    When it came to the White Walker threat, one of my favorite moments came from Davos Seaworth. When he tells Denaerys, "If we do not put aside our enmities and band together we will all die. Then it doesn't matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne". (Spoiler) Shame the Night King and White Walkers got offed just 3 eps in. Would have been better if they remained the final big bad of this story instead of Cersei/Dany...

    The lannisters didn't kill jon arryn
    This is a cool ending tho, on point with game of thrones unpredictability.
    The actual one was unpredictable too but in the worst way possible. They couldve made more seasons and told the story properly.
    Shame they ruined such a wonderful saga.

    But that ending also says that everyone deserves to die because their not perfect, I do agree that everyone is extravagant, but some of them who weren't still suffered because their nor perfect. I just don't really agree with that ending, but it is just a theory...

    This isn’t wrong, and I really do think out of all the storylines that was most betrayed was definitely the Army of the Dead and the Night King. However the story that they went with was a good one if you really think of it, but it was just executed poorly. We still have hope in Martians version though. Pray we get some satisfaction with that.

    I assume this is how Martin wants to end the books, especially considering white walkers are representative of global warming. It’s too bad that by the time the last book comes out, global warming will already wipe us all out

    The Night King should've been the last main villian that would've pushed the lions, wolves, and dragons into hell's door until they worked together to fight him. The bittersweet ending would've been the destruction of everything and the survivors rebuilding a new kingdom. Samwell would've had the most plot armor because someone needs to tell the history why the 7 kingdoms were destroyed in the first place.

    I thought Lysa and Petyr killed Aryn?? Did Lysa literally admit to it before he shoved her down the moon door???? Cercei and Jaime didn’t actually do that??

    Wish you could have done one on the Peter baelish =not dead= bravos theory
    It sounded completely idiotic but would have been a brilliant twist that could've turned the finale into epic and fit well enough to make the writing intentional and almost as brilliant as the former twists. I never liked baelish but he may have been the one character believable enough to answer all the unsure narrative twists in the narrow cinematic timeframes. Even if we would disagree I know you'd find some parallels interesting.
