We set out our last expectations for the last ever scene of Game of Thrones. What’s more, we are not foreseeing an exceptionally cheerful completion.
It could’ve been so natural. She stays there on her steed, her tyke, and her weapon of mass decimation. The fight Daenerys Targaryen trusted she was bound to battle—and persuaded a whole worldwide crowd to pull for her in—finished before it scarcely started. For reasons unknown, in the event that one disregards the baffling craziness of Rhaegal’s passing a week ago, winged serpents are as yet a definitive guaranteed winner in a round of positions of authority, and Daenerys utilized hers to vanquish King’s Landing’s resistances like it was nothing. In any case, it wasn’t sufficient.
We can parse out the accurate motivation behind why she yielded to her dad’s inheritance, yet by the day’s end she did and the Stormborn conveyed the tempest to her tribal home by drizzling hellfire down on the liable and blameless alike. She along these lines killed thousands. Possibly many thousands. This was the unpleasant completion of the climactic fight Game of Thrones has dependably been structure toward, and it’s one that feels consistent with George R.R. Martin, assuming more so in idea than execution given the deficiencies of season 8. In any case, that abandons one final scene—a finale to the entire arrangement that must wrap up all the story strings we’ve been following for in any event nine years. It appears an unenviable errand that I’m as of now bringing down my desires for. In any case, there is no denying that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have effectively impeded my initial, rosier forecasts for the Game of Thrones endgame.
Presently, here toward the finish of all things, we assumed that we would take one final shot at attempting to envision what will come amid the last ever scene of Game of Thrones…
A Queen, a King, and No One
At the point when the residue and cinder settle on King’s Landing, nothing will be left. The city that Daenerys Targaryen swore never to govern as a dictator was taken with each ounce of the bloodthirstiness that Aegon Targaryen indicated when he dissolved Harrenhal to destroy 300 years prior. She followed through on her dad’s perishing solicitation to consume them all, and it was a dismally lighting up juxtaposition when the rest of the stores of Aerys II’s rapidly spreading fire looked like modest green sparklers by the annihilation created by Daenerys and Drogon’s dragonfire.
Ruler’s Landing has fallen and Daenerys has capitulated to her family’s most noticeably terrible driving forces. She is presently in fact Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, however it doesn’t appear to be bound to keep going for even an entire scene. Jon Snow, as has been entrenched to Daenerys’ anguish, has a superior case on the Iron Throne by his lawful name of Aegon Targaryen. Arya Stark likewise scarcely endure Dany’s massacre just to be soaked in the blood of honest kids. She looks desensitized and more confused than whenever since she persevered through the exhibition of seeing her sibling’s body sewn to the leader of his killed direwolf. Arya went to King’s Landing to execute a ruler; it just worked out to be the one she didn’t anticipate.
All of which appears to predict that Arya is currently determined to do to the destructive mythical serpent ruler what she did to the Night King, closing Daenerys Stormborn’s eyes for eternity. On a specific dimension, it would bode well and add additional incongruity to the way that in Arya Stark’s initial petitions of retribution before heading off to the House of Black and White, she essentially alluded to Cersei as “the Queen.” Perhaps she didn’t see how fittingly unremarkable that was? Be that as it may, I don’t think this is intended to be, if simply because it would be too spotless a goals after Arya’s ninja aptitudes were utilized for the unexpected triumph throughout the Night King only three scenes back. Rather something increasingly heartbreaking is expected.
