Mary, I thought the Night King was a Stark, but not dying from dragon fire makes sense on the Targaryen front. 🤔
FYI, I wrote a post before this.

Jon doing it would have been soooo cliche. I’m so glad it was Arya. She made the most sense. She didn’t go through all of that training to kill Wights. She didn’t have that kind of devotion to her family to have anyone else save Bran.
I’m still not clear on Bran – 3 Eyed Raven – Night King. I just don’t get it.
I loved the Behind the scenes video on how they filmed it. It was so well done. And YES – the musical score was absolutely fantastic.May 1, 2019 at 3:37 pm #5874
Who do you guys want sitting on the iron throne at the end? I actually do think Jon would be the fairest ruler. Dany is Dany. Sansa has a lot of hate in her, though she’s one a great job with the North. Cersei…I hope Jaime kills her, but hopefully not at the expense of Brienne. Gendry has a claim, but don’t think he’d remotely have any clue on how to do it. Arya would never want it. Who do you think are other possibilities?May 2, 2019 at 9:08 am #5875
Jon is my pick – at the cost of Dany. I can’t see him wanting to be in a place of power like that unless it absolutely necessitated it. It’s not a role he’s particularly wanted unless driven to it. I’d like to see Dany but it seems too perfect of an ending for this series. I’d be happy if she left this world for the next knowing that balance & justice was restored. Job done. Left in the hands of a man she loves and respects. There’s a fire in her that burns a little too hot & I think we’re going to see that take over as the series comes to an end. Love her character & how she’s developed, just like all the other women. But power is dangerous. I think of all the females, she’ll fall victim to that power more so than not.
I’d like Sansa too but I have to see if she can bring down some of the walls that she’s put up. I need her to have a vision of the world beyond the North.
Arya – no. She’s better off as Jon’s right hand man than a ruler. She wants to get things done. Not waste her time on maneuvering through politics.May 2, 2019 at 11:41 am #5879
I’m indifferent to Dany. There are times I like her and there are times I really don’t. Her reaction to Jon’s lineage irritated me. All she thought about was the iron throne instead of, hey…you’re my relative…I’m your aunt. I don’t know if Dany would be a good leader anymore. Your feelings on Sansa on the North is how I think of Dany in Westeros. Does she really know the people and the houses? Why should anyone blindly follow her? I’m holding out on my final verdict of how I feel about her at the end.
While Jon many not really want the throne, he can lead and bring people together. He cares about the greater good and puts his pride to the side for it.
I agree on Arya. I’d be scratching my head if it was her. I want her and Gendry to live happily ever after.May 2, 2019 at 12:15 pm #5880
That reaction didn’t bother me. I just figured familial relations like that were normal for her. Her brother probably would have slept with her and she would have complied. Her whole life, since birth, had been to reclaim the Iron Throne for her family. And now that could be taken away by the news that Jon delivered…that may or may not be true, in her estimation at least.
Now…I do think that it will push her to the edge. And that’s when she may become the Mad Queen. Again, I kind of expect this because there’s probably madness in their family line due to those previously mentioned ‘family relations’. I’m not opposed to her going mad. I think it jives with the whole story. Love her nonetheless. I just take it as a consequence of her circumstances. She’s been pushed to the brink so many times. At some point, the push may be the one that’s too much.
ITA – Sansa and Dany are very much alike. Pushed to the edge way too many times. How they continue to react will be very telling as we come to the end. I’d be happy with either as ruler if it makes sense. In my head, I see Dany reunited with Drogo. When the “sun sets to the east” — I always felt that quote marked her death and reunited her with him. That’s the romantic in me. I’m prepared for her to die. Goodness knows they killed off all the people I root for. lolMay 2, 2019 at 1:22 pm #5884
I want big character deaths. Some should have died last week, but I get for storytelling why they didn’t die. If all of the “good” characters live I would be so angry. I’d be most heartbroken over Arya and Brienne.May 2, 2019 at 6:14 pm #5886GWTW1939Participant@gwtw1939
I want to see something crazy happen about the throne. Like, nobody gets it in the end. Because something crazy happens. Or I’m still curious if Dany turns up preggers and then the Jon/Dany inbred kid would be on the “throne.” I don’t know. Honestly, I don’t even care anymore. This show has dragged on so long, sometimes I forget the whole damn point of it haha! I just know I want to see Cersei die for sure. I agree Abs, but not at the expense of Brienne. If Brienne dies, I would be sad. I have several characters I like, that I hope don’t die before the end!May 3, 2019 at 9:17 am #5888
Yep to deaths. It wouldn’t be GOT without marquee deaths.
Totally disagree though – I could watch more and more of GOT. The writing, intricacies and layering are so well done. I keep wanting to watch the older seasons again just to look out for those old connections. It’s definitely one of those rare shows that has kept me engaged season after season.May 3, 2019 at 12:01 pm #5890
Oh I love this show and the books. I’m saddened I don’t get to have the detail the books provided for a lot of seasons 1-5 even though D&D strayed from the books. Each of these episodes is bittersweet. I’m going to rewatch the entire series in a year or two. I’ve already watched a few random ones in the past few weeks.
