With at least a year to wait, likely more, we'll have plenty of time to discuss what may happen to finish off this most epic of tales. With season 7 ending the way it did, it's hard not to wonder what may be in store for us once the final season finally airs. With 6 possible 90 minute episodes, the final season will give us 10 final hours of Game of Thrones badassness. To recap what we have going into season 8: Spoilers for the season finale below Team Daenerys and Aegon are heading together for White Harbor along with the Unsullied and the rest of Daenerys crew, Tyrion, Varys, Missandei, and the Unsullied where they will meet up with the Dothraki on the Kings Road for their final voyage to Winterfell. Theon has taken his small band of Ironborn back to the Iron Isles to attempt a rescue of Yara. They believe Euron has headed home, unknown to them he has really traveled to Braavos to pick up the Golden Company. Will Yara even be in the Iron Isles when Theon shows up? Jaime has finally had enough of his big sister and has seemingly grown tired of being on the wrong side of things. Heading north with a symbolic gesture of covering his golden hand, he appears to be heading towards Winterfell. Will he go at it alone? Hard to imagine Bronn staying by Cersei's side given the two actors won't share a scene together (notice how Bronn took Pod out for a drink just before the Queen arrived). Cersei has finally pushed all she holds dear away from her. With power being her only motivation, she cares not what happens to the realm if it means she will no longer live in the Red Keep. With her pregnancy, she has all the family she needs right in her belly. Tormund and Beric appear to be stuck atop the wall after the Night King brought it down and has brought his dead south. Where do they go first? I'd imagine the Umbers are in for it as the Last Hearth seems to be the likely first stop. With all of that being said let's get into what might happen when season 8 finally premiers. If I'm a betting man, I'm willing to bet that both of our Queens will be pregnant during next season. I'm also willing to bet that they both die in childbirth. This would fulfill Cersei's prophecy that she dies at the hand of the valonqar in that Jaime and her fourth child (if a son) would both be younger brothers. Also, if Daenerys were to get pregnant, chances of her dying in childbirth seem to be high in this universe and would tie into GRRMs bittersweet ending. Her inability to have children could be BS as Jon said, her source isn't very reliable, or perhaps the death of Viserion paid the price of death for her new child, or perhaps it was Jon's death that did it. Or maybe it's just that she needed another Targaryen. Either way, I'm pretty confident #epicboatsex leads to conception. Of course, the two young babies may also be destined to marry to join the realm in peace if they forward the story along 20 years. Aegon, or Jon, or whatever his name will be moving forward will be very conflicted over the news that he is the heir to the Targaryen claim. He'll want to marry his aunt regardless so that his child does not grow up to be a bastard. Something Jon has been so worried about he kept his virginity over. How Daenerys takes the news will also affect if they get married. Whose claim is stronger matters not if they wed. If they don't wed, then Jon will have a bastard and Daenerys will likely not be thrilled that she was not born to rule the seven kingdoms. I believe they will be wed and this will further cement the alignment between the North and Daenerys foreign armies. Sansa has proven herself a very capable leader in Jon's stead. I believe the threesome of Bran, Arya and Sansa will continue to rule over Winterfell. Jon will marry Daenerys and his attention will be focused on defeating the Night King and then helping figure out what to do with Kings Landing. This will leave the door open for Sansa to remain the lady of Winterfell. Of course, if the Night King is defeated for good, the need for a Stark to always be in Winterfell may not be so dire in the future so the Stark name, which is seemingly lost without a male heir, can fade into the songs. The show is also slowing showing us that there will be an end to the feudal family wheel that has spun for millennia. I do feel that Bran, Arya and Sansa will be the last remaining Starks. Tywin's legacy will live on. Even with his more cunning and vicious side showing through with his eldest, his two youngest sons will keep the family name from being dragged too far into the mud. With Tyrion's diplomatic skills and possible solution of succession and Jaime's military mind helping the realm defeat the army of the dead, both of them will live on as heroes in their own right and help change the narrative that he and his eldest daughter have tried to destroy through their desires for power. Of course, there is still a possibility that Arya could kill Jaime for crippling Bran and then use his face to kill Cersei. Possible, puts Brienne in a compromising situation, but blah... I have no idea how this story ends, but I do think that the Night Kings demise will happen at the Godswood in Winterfell. I mean the name alone begs for this to happen. Perhaps Winterfell will fall and all of the Starks gone with only Jon's lineage to keep the Stark blood alive. I believe Winterfell's purpose is to oppose the Night's King and once that objective is complete, there will be no need for the sprawling, growing castle to live on. Winterfell is tied to the White Walkers. He was defeated there before and he will meet his ultimate demise there. And I do believe it will be Arya who does it. She's too badass not to play a major role. She will kill again and it will be glorious. (I believe the scorched Red Keep that Daenerys saw in visions was only a possible future, one where she embraced her inner dragon and destroyed the capitol, allowing a permanent winter to set in. I believe that future will no longer happen thanks to the guidance of Jon and Tyrion to keep her from her "impulses". At the end of the day, I believe the Night's King will be dealt with first. He won't make it past Winterfell. Of course, how they give us 10 more hours of the Night King never making it past Winterfell will be difficult. Perhaps he conquers Winterfell quickly and kills off all of the Starks and sweeps through the realm only to be stopped in the south. All possibilities. Either way, he'll be defeated and the wrap up of the song of Ice and Fire will focus on the destruction of the wheel and the formation of a new type of government with magic finally ridden from the realm for good. Thoughts?
