Martin may be two novels behind Game of Thrones’ ending, but the TV show’s finale will be his planned conclusion to A Song of Ice and Fire. The 70-year-old author has made it clear he let the showrunners know all the major plot points of The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. He told Rolling Stone: “The major points of the ending will be things I told them five or six years ago. But there may also be changes, and there’ll be a lot added.”
The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, The Bells, saw Daenerys invade King’s Landing and then annihilate the whole city in one swooping feat of destruction thanks to her only surviving dragon’s flames.
It’s certainly clear from the very short teaser trailer for the final ever episode that Tyrion and Arya may have some mixed feelings about her actions.
But Daenerys has won; the Iron Throne is hers and House Targaryen is in power once again. Or is it?
Let’s not forget that Jon Snow – aka Aegon Targaryen – is her nephew and the rightful ruler of seven kingdoms, as a direct male heir of her older brother Rhaegar, the son of the Mad King.
