The Game of Thrones Series Finale Ending Explained

    After an uneven final season comprised of only six episodes, fans were excited, concerned, and downright desperate to see how the Game of Thrones saga would finally end. From the Iron Throne to the fate of Westeros and the final showdown between Daenerys and Jon Snow, here's what the ending of Game of Thrones means not just for the final season, but for the entire series.
    Beware: spoilers are coming!
    After the burning of King's Landing in the previous episode, several main characters wander through the brutal aftermath, with Tyrion Lannister, the Hand of the Queen, looking stricken as he walks down ruined streets and sees the bodies of those Daenerys burned without mercy. As he and Jon Snow survey the destruction, Jon and Tyrion separately set off to meet the queen.
    Jon's journey finds him at odds with Grey Worm over the execution of Lannister soldiers. But soon after Tyrion sets off on his own, he makes a horrifying discovery. In a truly heartbreaking moment, Tyrion finds the bodies of his brother and sister and breaks down amid the rubble. With the rest of his house literally entombed, Tyrion finds himself suddenly alone, and in that moment, his resolve to defy his queen strengthens.
    Later, as the Dothraki and Unsullied celebrate their victory, Daenerys makes a grand entrance, riding atop Drogon and landing in a perfect shot with her silhouetted by his wings. While she gives a full-throated victory speech in which she praises her army for taking down a tyrant and claiming the city as their own, viewers know the truth: Dany is no better than the tyrant she aims to replace. In fact, she's probably a lot worse, as she announces her plans to prolong the war and conquer the rest of the world.
    Daenerys has always bent towards justice, but with this proclamation, it seems as if she's finally gone too far, and even her most trusted advisors seem frightened by her endless hunger for power.

      I didnt like the ending at all 😐 1. The dragon queen was killed too easily 😵2. John Snow ❄️ banished far north as punishment for killing Daenerys Targaryen! 😱Sansa and Bran agree to this exile when he did everyone a favor by killing the psycho queen yet he is punished. 3 Cersai died so stupid by falling rocks in the Castle and we dont even see her get killed 🗡, I wanted to see her die a vicious death ☠️ at the hands of the dragon queen🐉 or Arya Stark 🏹 for all of the evil she did but no we dont get that.👎😾👺😡👿🖕🤢😤😩😫😓😥😢😪😬💀⚰️

      This wasn’t about gratification for the audience (bc that is sorely lacking) but about revealing to the collective consciousness a much bigger and more important theme: and that is, mercy. Jon Snow won, and will win, after all is said and done, bc he was all for mercy and humbleness.
      Concepts of mercy don’t always win in this realm. We want instant gratification and what feels good and soothes our egos and puts us in the spotlight. Look how Sam was shot down for bringing up democracy.
      Maybe it’s time to change concepts that exist in the morphic field. Bravo for brilliant directing and NOT giving us what we want but what we need

    There is always reference to world history, particularly the way how the west dominated the world. The whole GoT series is akin to how Europe was engulfed by plague, famines and war. In the end, they were able to found an alternative way to raise Kings/Queens. No longer a birthright and a divine one, but that which is chosen by the people who know best. Isn’t that like republicanism? And this ending, where Arya sets further westward feels a lot like Columbus founding the new world for Europe. Arya founding a new world for Westeros. Much like renaissance x French Revolution (bastille style). I can only imagine stories from Arya in her old age governing settlements in that part west of Westeros establishing ties as well with it, particularly with the North. Judging how UK’s history went by, the whole of Westeros probably won’t break up ever again. The North, in a sense is like Ireland, and whatever land Arya sees would be the Americas. Drogon, probably flies further east. Highly relevant to how Westeros achieved its enlightenment and break from tyrannical rule of families who drive by birthright. Dany is dead, but will be a forgotten figure only Drogon can live by. I think he will eventually end up in Ashai and where people surely know what happened. And I think Ashai is Asia. Far East, holds much history the world has yet to know. And Further into this story, Ashai is probably closest to west of Westeros than we might think, and could probably be, ironically the land further west coming full circle. And Arya sees it for herself.
    As for Jon, he’s welcome to go back and forth I think. With Bran and Sansa sitting on thrones. The North is compassionate with the wildlings now. And what about Eastwatch? The sprouting grass probably is a foreshadowing that the wall will be in ruins or no use as the ice melts away gradually. The black will relax and just be a gate for whatever relationship will be. Bran will write a constitution setting reliable laws for everyone, and could someday abolish the monarchies all together. They will look east to Bravos and other cities that have no kings & queens for inspiration but will probably have cold relationships with the bay of dragons for killing their heroine-Dany.

    Does anyone know if Benioff&Weiss are still hiding in some cave? Because if would be interesting to see their reaction to all this (very justified) backlash on how rushing the story to the end was clearly a huge mistake.

    Sad it's all over. The war with the white walkers was very gripping, the music built up the tension perfectly. I was disappointed that Jon Snow didn't become King. I would imagine working together for so many years, these actors will miss the work and company of each other. Great entertainment and well acted throughout. Goodbye Jon Snow, so beautifully acted.

    It is such a PERFECT conclusion to GoT. D&D have done a brilliant job.
    The conclusion laid a foundation to the the end of an era of royals & royalty & beginning of another era - democracy & the rule of law.
    And who best to usher this in - Bran - the philosopher king & a broken one, who has neither the desire nor the capability to further his royal ambition through biological perpetuation.
    And so begins the new world order.
    My compliments to the writers.

    Jon Snow is an absolutely disgusting character, he is a backstabber, he betrayed the nightswatch, his first love and then finally Daenerys in a two-faced, intrigant and manipulating manner. He used her love for him against her. He has no consistent morals. He is a coward.
    And he is full of self-pity with is almost constantly miserable look on his face. He has never processed being (treated as) a bastard.

    The series finale rendered the Iron Throne itself, the inspiration for most of the terrible things we’ve seen over eight seasons, was grief-torched by Drogon after Jon Snow killed its mom. That same show had given us King's Landing, so now King's Landing had been destroyed. This whole moment was reminiscent and painful to feel but also deeply relatable.
    For all its flaws, Game of Thrones had a lot going for it, and those are why my family, who grew up in a time when the best shows were terrible, were so enchanted by both the series and the characters. If you liked me, you hated me; if you didn't, good, and not so much. And then suddenly, after nine long months, Game of Throne's final season's finale's ending, you can see this:
    "Do you have any more questions for Daenerys?"
    "What does she have with Daario?"
    "How does she come to be the Lady of the Eyrie?"
    That's, of course, what makes an episode like this great. Game of Thrones's finale's premiere's premiere's finale's finale's premiere's finales.

    The last episode written by AudioAndroid
    The Lannisters in the very end have won and all the head players from the family enter a small room that's located, hidden underneath the Iron Throne. This room contains the War Plan table, the same table that we have seen at the start of every episode, as it changed, it was the Lannisters moving the pieces everything according to the Lannister Song, it was the song, the War Plan was hidden in the notes and it allowed for the Lannisters to give orders, secret coded orders to those who knew how to decipher the meaning of the ever changing pitches of the notes. But at the end it would be the Hound who gets the last bite, following the family down the winding stairs the Hound strikes quick killing Jaime Lannister with a sword in the back, next the Alchemy Wizard falls with out being touched, a old heart is old indeed. Cersei Lannister orders the Cold Mountain to attack and indeed he does but the Hound is to familiar of his brothers ways and the mountain crumbles, Cersei with nothing else to give quickly tells the Hound "Here, take this Gold, live like a King"....The Hound says nothing... "Here take Kings Landing its yours" The Hound says nothing... "Is it me you want, then take me do what you wish I am yours" The Hound HOWLS...FUCK YOUR GOLD, FUCK YOUR MAP, AND FUCK THE the end the Hound sits on the Iron Throne.

    Jon Snow had a better story than Bran. I think Jon let all of them use him. In the sense than. Jon always say he doesn't want to be king and he meant it. Bran also always says he cannot be any Lord of king but all was a lie. Jon just let them use him like that. The name bastard really worked on him.

      No sequel is coming. Make up your own :
      - Jon continues to brood in a cave or by the waterfall why and how his girlfriend Ygritte got killed and Dany was killed by him
      - Arya discovered a new land and all the indigenous people she encountered died of greyscale because she was a carrier
      - Tyrion and Bronn sold out Westeros to Daario to conquer, but Bran had a vision of them doing it and warg into Drogon to roast Tyrion and Bronn
      - Sansa bring her North army and annex the Six Kingdoms because chaos is a ladder, and she has Bran, her little brother, to agree she be Queen of all Westeros and he be her Hand.
      Fin. The End.
      But a GoT prequel is coming.....

    I knew we are fucked the moment sam told Jon that the lady he has just falling in love with is his sister , and he has already slept with her, , the mother of Dragon loved Jon snow , she wanted them to be together, she begged for it , but Jon refused, im sure that is also one reason she burnt down a city full of women and children , she burnt the only thing she was trying to protect all her life
    ( i just hope im dreaming because the disappointment in this is movie is too much for me )
