So season 7 of #GameOfThrones is over and fans of the HBO show will pretty much have to wait till 2019 for the 8th and final season with most wondering how the show will end. Fans were left wondering at the end of the 7th season what the future holds for Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and his allies, especially since the night king just breached the wall.
The end is near and it maybe a little difficult for viewers to have to wait until 2019 for the final season of #GameOfThrones that will only have six episodes. It appears we will be checking out till a spin-off comes out.
With the White Walkers on the march against the land of the living, the stage is set for a final action-packed season that will make other seasons pale in comparison. Here are a number of fan theories and predictions about the final #GameOfThrones Season that will likely come true.
Winterfell Will Fall
With the wall already breached, the white Walkers are already in Westeros with an undead dragon on their side with only one soul purpose, to destroy mankind. Their destruction will most likely start with the closest high-value target, Winterfell.
This won’t be the first time that the stronghold of house Stark will come under attack but it will most likely be the most painful. Given the proximity of the Night King’s wrecking crew to the iconic Northern castle, we all should be ready to see Winterfell fall towards the end of the premiere of the final season.
Jon Snow Will Die And Live Again
Jon Snow has died once before and there’s little evidence he won’t die again before #GameOfThrones comes to an end. He is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne being the son of Rhaegar Targa and Lyanna Stark.
All this serves the purpose of fueling him towards his destiny and shaping him to become the hero who saves humanity from extinction, at the expense of his own life, most probably in battle against the Night King.
There’s however a possibility that Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) would sacrifice his last life to resurrect a fallen Jon Snow. We can assume he survived the fall of the Wall alongside Tormund (Kristofer Hivju) when the night kind and his army breached the wall.
The second death of Jon and revival will only serve the predestined narrative around the young man known as Aegon Targaryen.
The Clegane Showdown Will Happen
In the season seven finale of #GameOfThrones, the Hound tells the Mountain when they meet for the first time in ages: “Remember me? Yeah, you do. You’re even fucking uglier than I am now. What did they do to you? Doesn’t matter. It’s not how it ends for you, brother. You know whose coming for you. You’ve always known.”
These words point to a final battle royal between the Clegane brothers and it is going to be huge.
Littlefinger Will Come To Life
With the ability of Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) to wear the faces of the people she’s killed, and the motive to apply that treatment to the recently deceased Lord Baelish, she just may do just that. Imagine Arya wearing Littlefinger’s face and strolling down to King’s Landing to cozy up to Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) who already desperately needs allies.
This may be a way of satisfying the “valonqar” prophesy that states that Cersei will be killed by the “younger sibling.” A lot of people think the prophecy refers to Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) or Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), but it may just apply to the youngest Stark sister wearing the face of an enemy.
Bran Stark Will Fly
The Three-Eyed Raven promised Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) at the end of season four that, “You will never walk again … but you will fly,” and he hasn’t done that except you count his travels through time and warging as flying.
The good thing is he has an opportunity to do that in the final #GameOfThrones Season by warging into the rotting body of the undead Viserion, and hijacking the dragon away from the vicious Night King.
The Night King Will See His End
This somewhat seems easy especially since #GameOfThrones is a story filled with brutality and a hope that good will overcome bad. The prediction is that Bran will steal Viserion back from the Night King, forcing the enemy to fight on the ground in single combat against Jon Snow (Kit Harington).
We’ve already seen Jon kill two White Walkers now and with the information they got beyond the wall that killing White Walkers also kills the wights under their control, that means the end of Night King should mean the end of all of the wights.
