As much as we all love the emotional roller coaster that Game of Thrones is, we all know the real reason that everyone is watching because we all just want to know who will eventually win Game of Thrones and sit on that ugly, sword-melted chair everyone is just out to set up his master.
If you asked this question at the end of season 1, you would probably have received a number of theories that could not possibly be true: mainly because George R.R. Martin and HBO show runners are extremely fond of killing people.
And just like a flannel-bearing lumbersexual at a dive bar in East Bushwick with some particularly strong opinions about craft beer, GOT fans have more than their fair share of theories about who will be numero uno when the smoke has disappeared from the dragons at the end of the series.
Who will win the Game of Thrones?
The blacksmith. The guy that Arya is talking about, the man who is rumored to be forging some Valyrian steel. Of course, Gendry looks like he appeared on the news as part of a football hooligan’s hate crime line-up, but the man is the only living relative of the former King Robert Baratheon. The direct descendant is a bastard, but he is still Robert’s son. And HBO has released around 20 posters. The most striking was that Gendry had remained outside the line-up. Curious.
Bran has a face that begs to be flamboyant, but you’ll feel bad if you do that because he was pushed out of a window when he was just a little kid and stuff. The strange Stark is actually Las Vegas favorite to win the Iron Throne, since a piece from the trailer has confirmed everything that he is the Night King. Moreover, it is rather difficult to tamper with Bran’s powers of war and his preference for bending space and time and seeing events from the past, present and future. Imagine how powerful this boy will become once he can fully use them.
Sansa Stark really came into its own in the last few seasons. She was abused throughout the series by powerful men and women, and for some a bit of a “boring” character, but she learned the ways of deception and excuses well after every season, until she finally turned against her in the best possible way. moment, execute the man who caused so much pain to the Starks and just about everyone he came in contact with. Although I look miserable because I have made my husband so dirty, it is hard to deny that her life in court makes her a suitable candidate for the Iron Throne.
The fan’s favorite. The child. Mr. Night watch. Gentleman everyone-I thought-I-was-an asshole-but-I-actually-a-Targary and Jon Snow is definitely Martin’s baby in the show, and it seems that everything is preparing to make him the king of the whole rich. He is quite related to Daenerys Targaryen, who is completely in him and has an army and dragons at her disposal. He is extremely loyal, came back from the dead and has freed himself from more sticky situations than MacGyver. Then there is the whole fact that he is a male heir to the “rightful” rulers of the empire, the Targaryens.
Some fantasies, however, think that Jon, as Ned Stark’s spiritual son, will get dirty, just like his adoptive father. This is the hope that this will not happen. I don’t think my heart can handle it.
Khaleesi already knows what it means to be a bad leader in the face of adversity, and unlike Jon Snow she is “pure” Targaryen, which gives her the greatest “right” to the Iron Throne, that is, behind Jon Snow, as he is older than her, and a male Targaryen descendant.
The only thing that leads people to believe that it won’t be Dany is the fact that it all seems so obvious. She was an exiled queen and learned to reign and assemble an army in a foreign country. It is probably more credible that she wastes the powers of the Night King than they sit down on the Iron Throne.
There are several predictions in Game of Thrones that nothing will go well for Cersei and with regard to the lives of her children, it appears that those prophecies have all come true. However, there were other “fortune tellers” in the show who were ultimately false: such as Melisandre and her weird allegiance to Stannis Baratheon. Magic and fortune telling in the series are really no better than charm, cunning or brutal power and enormous armies – everything has equal footing and surpasses at a certain moment.
George RR Martin cryptically called the end of A Song of Ice and Fire “bittersweet,” which led people to believe that this could mean that while the White Walkers are all killed, we may leave behind a ruler that we would rather not have. Could the very cruel and bad Cersei be that ruler?
The Night King
You might want to pack Bran here, but homeboy looks like he’s rocking an unsustainable army. Moreover, it is difficult to kill someone who has legions of undead armies and can see when someone is trying to use magic on him or even spying on him (Bran teaches this the hard way). He also knows how to ride dragons … this guy can do anything and has knowledge of the world that is far beyond the reach of human understanding. Perhaps that “bittersweet” end is that that order is restored to the empire, but that order has a heavy price: rule by the Night King.
Who do you have as the “winner” of Game of Thrones? Well, the countdown to when we find out starts on Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
