    Who else sees “Winter” or the white walkers as a metaphor to climate change, even though it is quite the opposite in the show literally. But the signs are obvious of the white walker threat, with real evidence and proof of the existence, yet they choose to ignore all the cries for action for shortsighted greed and pride. The Night’s Watch are the climate scientists and they give proof to the government but it is ignored. The Wildlings or those who have faced climate change just as those who face sea level rise, wildfires, heat waves and drought. Yet the institutions and human pride prevents us from uniting and taking action only until it is to late and the threat is even more real than ever, just as is happening today. If everyone dies in Game of Thrones it will show our future and the consequences of our actions/inaction.

    The Night King will take the Iron Throne, and then the Iron Throne will be abolished. Daenerys will become a wight and give birth to a whitewalker. Jon Snow will kill the Night King and his son will become the new Night King.

    I might be the only one in this but Stannis should have won and here's why. 1. Staniss is a sharp leader who promot's devotion and courage. 2. He dose not let emotion's overwhelm him like everyone else ,and he understands sacrifice and loss. 3. He's among the few who recognize the danger of the white walker's. 4. Hes a badass fighter and a loyal husband and father. 5. he didnt pursue money/fame/power he truly belived he was going to save everyone by becoming a king. Overall if not for melysandra he would have have been the ideal king ,probably joining force's with renly and winning over the game of thrones.

    It's not a reset for society though because the night king won't stop with just the seven kingdoms. It's the end of society and mankind. And though they deserve karma that doesn't always have to be paid for in lives or blood. The misdeeds of the rulers and rich in westeros should not be paid for by the poor and innocent of it. Otherwise it's not so much karma as it is more of the same, endless slaughter.

    Can't agree with you on this one, not just because of the spin-offs (they can be made even with your ending, with new characters far in the future or in the past), but because it would imply that the 7 previous seasons were all for nothing, with humankind dying due to an unknown menace they couldn't do anything about. I think it would be better for the show to survive the threat and start a new society that looks up to eliminate all the issues and institutions you addressed in the video

    The Whitewalkers should win. That's what I want. Throw the audience for a curveball, and steal everyone's breath, just show the nightking sitting upon the throne with all the characters bodies beneath it. Highly unlikely though, because the throne is made of swords that were forged with dragon fire, and it is highly likely that they will disassemble the throne so they can arm their soldiers with the swords.

    i think your ending is the most obvious and it fits with some pretty central themes/beliefs. "All men must die" but "what is dead may never die." If anyone has seen the movie "Knowing", I think GOT will end similarly.

    I have a few problems with Daenerys, she had absolutely zero problem with slavery when with the Dothraki and she was going to buy the Unsullied she only freed them (and others) when she couldn’t afford to buy them. Then after freeing the slaves she didn’t reform and improve the society she just freed the slaves. In a system that works because of slave labour you can’t just free slaves and expect everything to be fine. She tries to maintain that she is above politics as a queen and that works in a modern world where the majority of monarchs only hold symbolic power but in a place like Westeros where the system of government is effectively absolute monarchy where whatever the monarch says goes you can’t be queen and be above politics it doesn’t work. She also holds no constant line - it’s 100% fine with her to give the Iron Islands independence for support against Cersei but she never offers Jon the same deal. And she sees herself as the rightful claimant to the throne (and no this isn’t about R+L=J). Her father was deposed by a rebellion that started because he decided to kill a Stark father and son (because loves young dream over there couldn’t act with propriety and do things openly) so she has no claim to the throne. That’s like saying the British still have a claim on America despite a successful revolution. And the Targaryens are invaders anyway they came to Westeros conquered the continent with dragons and imposed themselves as rulers. You know like the colonial powers of our world did to various countries. Really I hope they just burn the throne down and go back to being separate kingdoms. Edit: I don’t think it will end with White Walker victory. I think that kinda renders the whole idea of R+L=J useless. Why work up to such a big reveal if it wasn’t going to matter because everyone dies? I think we maybe heading to some sort of Jon vs Daenerys battle (because Jon became a threat to her the second that was known, even if Jon doesn’t want the throne the possibility that he could potentially usurp her at anytime isn’t going to sit well with Daenerys. Especially because 100% some people would rather he be king as a male half-Stark (not inbred Targaryen) who grew up in Westeros and is the nephew of Eddard Stark. And if push came to shove he would probably have more Westeros supporters than her - the North 100%, the Vale and the Riverlands would almost certainly side with the Starks, the Westerlands would be divided (assuming Jaime stands with Sansa and Brienne and Tyrion with Daenerys), the Iron Islands don’t really care and the Stormlands, Dorne and the Reach have nobody left in charge/control.)
