No, after looking through all of the episodes, the foreshadowing, the metaphors, the themes, and EVERYTHING else - this is how the battle for the Iron Throne SHOULD end.

well... still i thing the series ends in logical way... we just assume Westeros had a pure luck of Arya doing that act, so they were able to defeat the undead army... but after this luck, the society continues in the same fashion MatPat describes... institutions not working, leaders being destructive (almost as much as the walkers) and doesnt care of cooperation... until the end when there has been raised some hope...

A few clarifications and corrections: - To clarify, the Lannister's UNOFFICIAL motto is "A Lannister always pays their debts." The real one is "Hear me roar"...which is lame. I figured I didn't need to specify the difference in the script, but some comments felt it was an important distinction. - The Lannisters don't actually kill Jon Arryn; it's actually his wife Lysa and Littlefinger. I TOTALLY forgot that bit. Let's face it,'s totally a move they WOULD do :) - Joffrey's death is a joint effort by both Littlefinger and Olenna. Olenna gets the awesome reveal monologue in season 7, but Littlefinger helps makes it happen because of Catelyn's death...and because he's a manipulative son-of-a-gun. - Yes, Arya reclaims her name before leaving the Faceless Men, but there's a big point in that quest about becoming someone else. The overall point is that ALL the remaining Stark children are no longer acting like Starks...and that's when they start regaining control over their lives.

and to be nerd-level accurate, it wasn't in the season 4 finale that the White Walker creation was explained, that was in season 6, episode 6 (same episode as the "Hodor" reveal). I remember being shocked we were getting that big of an answer right in the middle of a season.

@Christopher Edwards i don't even care about these things, because they are only in the books. but HOW IN ALL HELLS DID ARYA MAKE IT PAST THE ARMY + White Walkers without a sound! while in the SAME EPISODE! she wasn't even able to stay quiet and close a door without drawing attention..... HOW!!!!!! BS shit season made me so mad... and how come the entire army + white walker are in the gods wood.......... but one episode later almost everyone including their solders are still alive!!! HOW!!! did they run?! hide?! was that the plan?! let arya stab him.... "Amazing plan my lord! now i know i should follow your command!"

Well actually if you did some research you would know that the spirals were meant to symbolise a weirwood tree, and a clue as to how to kill the night king. He had to be killed in front a the tree he was created by. Only with a dragonglass blade, stabbed in the same place he was stabbed to begin with. It made perfect sense.

Lysa loved Petyr, so he told her that if she poisoned Jon Arryn on a visit, making it looking like a normal illness, then he could marry her. He really wanted to take the Eyrie to help him get into power by exploiting Lady Arryn's love for him.

When it came to the White Walker threat, one of my favorite moments came from Davos Seaworth. When he tells Denaerys, "If we do not put aside our enmities and band together we will all die. Then it doesn't matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne". (Spoiler) Shame the Night King and White Walkers got offed just 3 eps in. Would have been better if they remained the final big bad of this story instead of Cersei/Dany...

@Sebastián Santana Knew that Dany would burn a million people alive, made no effort to stop it. Said he couldn't be a king or lord, travels to kings landing to be a king Does nothing the entire time, summer dies he doesn't care. He has no empathy. Jon may not be king, but he shouldn't be cast out to do nothing on a holey wall that guards nothing. I'm just pissed at the amount of plot points that were ignored, like for some what was the point of revealing jons identity, what was the point of varys dying over it, why have so much tension between the nk and jon only to have them never fight. Like I'm fine with arya killing him, but I'd rather it be jon fighting the nk, he's losing and then arya sneaks up and kills the nk to save him, and have like a brother sister moment where jon realises kind of what she is and is proud of her.

So for what it's worth, I just saw this video for the first time, and this is almost point for point the *exact* argument I made when season 8 first premiered and why I gave up after s8e3. I was incredibly about how the NK was so easily dispatched and the entailed rejection of the overarching story. Somehow, the series finale actually made it worse, but maybe it was only worse because it solidified the problem with the NK's defeat--the continuation of institutions and the complete disregard for the price you pay when you try to play the game of thrones. I hope Martin thinks through his story more clearly than D&D did, and I hope he has the guts to tell the story the way it has been telling itself all this time.

I personally really do like the idea that the white walkers sweep down Westeros, annihilate the human institutions, and claim the iron throne. Remember that the walkers were made to reclaim the world for the Forest Children. The Forest children paid the cost for their lust for power and suffered for their pride because of it. I like the idea of the walkers accomplishing their mission and simply fading away, the final debt paid in full. Bran and the survivors in the north would rebuild and keep worship of the old gods, worshiping the heart trees and becoming like the Forest Children at the beginning. And when people from Essos come to claim the "abandoned" continent and destroy the heart trees, Bran's descendants will unleash the white walkers again, restarting the cycle.

@Corvaric True. And the magic that changed the Night King was never really shown to be a contract of any kind, just a magic transformation. I just like the idea of winter being unstoppable, but ultimately making way for spring. But also being inevitable as the seasons shift from spring to summer to fall. I also put my wager on Bran surviving because his group is the only one that never focused on the game of thrones where "you win or you die". And his group would be the only one that would believably turn to the same magic as the Forest Children and restart the cycle.

there is no danger as long as they stay away from them. Stannis actively made everything ten times worse. if he bent the knee to Renly, Tyrion loses his head. Tyrion cant suggest the stupid ass wight hunt. Viserion gets to live. Dany defeats Renly and takes the Iron Throne.

Sandor Clegane was my favorite character in any tv show or movie. I can't express the joy I felt when I found out he lived after Arya refused to kill him.

Aren't we getting prequels. So, "White Walkers fall. Everyone dies" might still be the ending.

Siggesatan how is and ending where everyone dies a shitty ending? I really don’t think you understand the whole thought process and reasoning behind that ending. Man isn’t ready to defeat the dead if they can’t work together, so the night king presses the reset button. Then in another 1,000 years he tests their worthiness. It makes more sense than any other ending, besides maybe a minuscule few surviving this war. And ending where everyone lives would be the dumbest shit to ever happen in this series. I’m not saying this is the only possible ending, but I am saying it would be a good one. And it leaves Westeros open for the next wave of man, so yeah it definitely would be possible to continue it. Your logic just doesn’t make any sense my guy, I’d give this one up.

Siggesatan in my eyes a happy ending is extremely shitty, because that's what people want, and it's boring, generic and expecting. But that's exactly what GoT has not been about. And that is why an ending with everyone dying would be original and a lot better than some "good wins against the bad" shit.

Well, the show didn't end like that, but like you said, George RR Martin would want to write a different ending in the books. And his books probably won't have a spinoff, so nothing would stop him from making this ending.

Well, the premise for white walkers is that, if you kill one you kill his army, so, killing Just the White Walkers kind of gives the whole thing a "Blast the exhaust port and we win" vibe. So, the series always has that option. Sad right XD

Most of the groups do have Historic parallels in People's e.g The Children of the Forests are the Pre-Indo-Europeans of Britain. The White Walkers are the Picts of Ancient Scotland. The Free Folk are the unassimilated Old Brythonic Britons [Pre-Roman and Pre-Anglo-Saxons Britons]+Common Goidelic Peoples[Old Irish]+Hiberno-Romansm+Romano-Hiberno-Picts/Romano-Hiberno-Britons. The Northerners are the Goidelic Scots, Scando-Picts[mixed Vikinsg+Picts], Romano-Picts,[Romans and Picts] Norman-Picts, and Norns. The Westerosi are the Anglo-Normans(Mixed Parentage Anglo-Saxon Peoples and Normans]; Hiberno-Normans[Old Irish+Normans], Anglo-Saxon Peoples[Angles+Belgic+Burgundian+Gothic+Frisians+Frankish+Jutes+Saxons+Scanian+Vandal Settlers to Britain] and/or The Dane Law Settlers(Danish/Norwegian/Gotlandic/Gothic/Scanians/Swedish/Svealandic/Western Varangian Vikings]. The Free Cities could be either the Canaanites, Etrusco-Raetic, Ancient Greek, or Phoenician-Punic[Carthaginians] Cities. The Valyrians could be either the Latino-Faliscans[Romans], Ancient Greek Colonists, Italic Peoples[Aequians, Alba Longa, Auruncians, Liburnians,, Hernicans, Marsians,, Osco-Umbrians, Southern Picenes, Sabellic, Volscians] or Non-Indo-Europeans Peoples of Italy[Lepontics, Old Ligurians, Messapians, Northern Picenes, Old Venetian or the Sicels]. The Dothraki are either the Bulgars, Göktürks, Huns, Medes, Magyarok[Hungarians], Scythians, Scytho-Khotanese, Sarmatians, Oghuz Turks or the Xiongnu[most likely] Peoples.

NoseKey I imagine some planets are yet so full of some so called "rare earth" minerals contrary to most others. Minerals without which you don't have access to certain consumer goods. Some stellar objects such as strange matter neutron stars may for all we know be rather rare and extremely valuable. Also maybe there are only a few million planets in our galaxy with habitable conditions at any one time. Seeing how huge the galaxy is, that is bound to be actual real estate. Most importantly we can only speculate as to whether alien beings are possessive or not. But truly, we might be a potential threat simply because of something unforseeable such as our civilizational growth indicating that we will build a dyson sphere, while our star is the only one giving off the exact wavelengths of light that a fundamentally ecosystem-supporting form of life on Fhup has evolved to feed on in tiny amounts necessary to its survival. The Fhup civilization being about 20.000-20.700 light-years away from Sol, and goddamn religious about their home planet, their received mathematical wisdom about wormholes having not been proven wrong in a few tens of millenia, their wormholes only being able to be open at the nanometer scale, wormholes only being able to be open at certain alignments of their area with galactic dark matter which only happen every so often, and them not being wired to fathom linguistic theory, they decide to send miniature black holes at the opportunity of the millenia in 2076 to Earth to destroy all life on it. We're talking about aliens here and UNKNOWN unknown unknowns is my point, and anything you can come up with to support the idea of being supposedly safe from an alien threat can be shown to be moot in any number of imagined scenarios [EDITS finished, sorry]
