The year 2019 will mark the mostawaited finale of HBO’s hit TV series, Game of Thrones. With only six episodesleft, fans all over the world will soon be sailing to Westeros for the finaltime. Here are the five things to look forward to the last season of GOT.1. Winged steed for the dead! Westeros’history has been shaped by these massive fire breathing, flying reptiles.
Theyhave been used in warfare to burn a whole army and big cities as well as asymbolism for strength and power. After all, who would dare fight against anarmy with a dragon? Just aswe thought that Daenerys got us covered, things just got a little bit morecomplicated as we witness in season seven’s “beyond the wall” episode how thenight king made us go “WOAH”. Unfortunately, it turned out that the leader ofthe undead had some tricks up his sleeves as he managed to kill and resurrectViserion and turned it into a wight.
With this in mind, what could possiblystop the night king from attacking the humans? He has an army of wights, giants,and finally a winged steed. Would Daenerys allow her last two living dragons tobe part of the upcoming war?2. The Three-eyed raven’s prophecy Fanshave long wondered how Bran Stark would be able to fulfill the Three-eyedraven’s foretelling that the Stark boy will never be able to walk but he wouldbe flying soon. Online fora and commentaries from the fans state that Branmight be able to take control of Viserion and turn him against the Night King.It is important to note though that Bran is not yet strong enough inestablishing connection with animals, but with six episodes left, Bran probablyhas a shot on it. 3.
Arya’s list If wecan link one famous quote to Arya Stark’s name that is “all men must die”, theseso called “men” refer to the list of names which she would gladly kill giventhe opportunity. Despite all the special skills she acquired from herexperiences, Arya wasn’t given the chance to kill most of the people in herlist. Considering that the series is already coming to an end, fans speculatethat she would be killing Cersei in the coming season. That would lead us tothe next entry.
4. The Stark sisters against all odds! Seasonseven gave us a glimpse on how Arya and Sansa Stark worked hand in hand toexpose Baelish’s treachery. It’s amazinghow their characters have developed after the situations they have encounteredin their lives. Their past experiences definitely paved way so that they maybecome strong, intelligent, and skillful in handling matters. Fans speculatethat the sisters will be part of a bigger plan that will unfold in the lastseason, so better watch out for that.5.
Who will sit on the Iron throne? And themost awaited scene is…who will rule the seven kingdoms and sit on the muchcoveted, Iron throne? There are three options here: Jon as a Targaryen,Daenerys Targaryen, or a Lannister. The stakes are high and fans are rallyingto put the two Targaryens on the throne. After all, a Targaryen will alwayshave the best claim to the throne. It is important to note though that aLannister may still have a shot on the throne. In season seven, we were lead tobelieve that Cersei will never back down from her claim and is willing to giveher all to keep the throne to herself.
