Well guys, for better or worse, we made it. There's one episode left of Game of Thrones. Here's the trailer, which admittedly does not reveal much:
We get shots of a horrified Jon, Davos, and Tyrion examining the rubble of King's Landing...
Including the destroyed Red Keep.
Arya looks on in anger at Dany's still massive army.
While Tyrion looks utterly defeated.
Daenerys observes her army (which, again, is somehow still massive???). The shot cements her as queen of the ashes.
She became exactly what she didn't want to become.
But what does this all MEAN? Well, Daenerys has to die for sure. There's no way the show is ending with her as the tyrannical ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. Of course, I have been totally wrong before — but let's say the show is going to kill her off. The question remains: Who will do it?
Going off the trailer — and, uh, who is actually left at this point — there are three strong contenders. Firstly, there's Arya Stark.
There's Tyrion Lannister, the man who believed in Daenerys Targaryen after a lifetime as a cynic. And look how that turned out for him.
And then, of course, there's Jon Snow. Who just watched the woman he loves (who also happens to be his aunt) massacre hundreds of thousands of innocent people for NO GOOD REASON.
