All subverted predictions. Neither Jon Snow nor Daenerys Targaren, the Dragons' mother, sits on the Throne of Swords. The lords and the surviving ladies, on the advice of Tyron Lannister, elect King Brandon Stark, the crow with three eyes "who sees the past and scrutinizes the future". Brandon has been in a wheelchair since the first season: he was thrown from his Winterfell tower, his home, by Jaime Lannister, caught in an incestuous relationship with his sister Cersei. The cult scene of the final episode, broadcast worldwide throughout the night between Sunday and Monday, is the dramatic confrontation between Jon Snow and Daenerys: Jon vainly begs his beloved Daenerys to save the life of Tyron Lannister (guilty of trying to save brother Jaime) and to put an end to all the atrocities.
But Daenerys is inflexible, he plans other wars and Jon Snow, while he kisses her, stabs her in the heart. His body will be taken to heaven by Dragon, the last dragon.
To put an end to the wars, Gray Worm, the leader of the Immaculate, remained faithful to Daenerys until the end, requiring Jon Snow to return to the night watchmen, but once he reaches the barrier, he prefers to join the brutes in search of new ones. frozen lands. Gray Worm and the Immaculate set sail for uninhabited islands. Sansa Stark claims the independence of the North and becomes its queen; his younger sister Arya Stark leaves to find out what's beyond Westeros "where the maps stop".
After eight seasons, the fiction that broke every record ends. A final that certainly will not have pleased the 800,000 fans who had already asked HBO to remake the eighth season before the last episode.
