Love your theories Mark.

I’ve said Arya is going to kill Dany but the circumstances that you suggest make sense

There are rumours that there will be another season to make up for this disastrous one. I can only hope it becomes more than a rumour and that it will be written by Martin instead of the two clowns who did Season 8. Shouldn't be a problem because I read in a recent interview with Martin that he's got enough material for five(!) more seasons.

Martin even finishing the last two books would be a far greater achievement. Its been 8 years since Dances with Dragons and the last two were pretty bad.

The ability of dragon fire to destroy castle walls is in the canon of GOT. When dragons first came to Westeros, Aegon Targarrian destroyed Harrehal, the largest castle in the realm. In the Burning of Harrenhal, Aegon used his dragon Balerion to roast King Harren and all of his sons alive within their own tower. Harrenhal was blasted with dragonfire and left half-ruined.

I thought it was a somewhat tame and feeble ending BUT with the hope of those 5 more seasons


Jon sets off to start his new kingdom with the Free from Castle Black and Arya is sailing west of Westeros

Will there be more.....unlikely but the ending holds out the hope for retribution

Jon kills Dany in the throne room. Sansa becomes queen... Jon goes back to the north to guard the wall and reacquaints with Ghost, his wolf. Evidence of white walkers show up with weird animal deaths up North. Bran repairs the wall with his magic.
Nailed MOST of it. Wall repaired but by whom? No evidence of White walker animal deaths. Jon SENT rather than goes back to Castle Black. Jon killing Dany was a no-brainer. Ghost was a nice touch! I was not sure if Tyrion would live..glad he did!

On the Today show this morning they announced that 2 prequels were already in the works that take place centuries before the start of GOT

I thought the ending was soft and thoughtless and that too many got off too easy

The only inspiration at the end was the door was left open for more to come

I actually liked the last episode and thought that everything was settled like it should have been in the end and more important, it all made sense this time. Didn't expect this level of quality looking back at some previous episodes of this season.

They should make a sequel where they go back in time and stop Joffrey from becoming king in the first place. That will be a blockbuster

I wasn't the ending we lusted for, but as I got past that it did come full circle for those who started watching in season 1. I did love the Drogon melting the Iron throne, but was disappointed we didn't get to see how Jon told everyone what happened, as there was no evidence left other than a pool of blood and melted throne. I also expected more action from Arya.

In a FB group one member posted up this comment from his friend made almost 4 years ago:

If you look at it from that perspective, many things make more sense. Bran's story was key to the conclusion. Sansa finally became a queen of Winterfell after originally being set to marry Joffrey. Arya was always the one who didn't fit in and wanted to break away from the path of "a Lady," and in some of the very first episodes Jon stated to Arya "life's not fair" with respect to who gets to do what based on names and titles. It wrapped up in a way reminiscent of the start, but with all the self-proclaimed nobles ousted and a new generation/class of rulers.

Samwell did suggest a "democracy" which was poo pooed by the nobles present at the meeting
