Game of Thrones has been going on for quite a while now, and it is no surprise that the show is as big as it is today, since the plot and the battles are absolutely fantastic. On its way, it has racked several awards, and rightly so, since this show has been a master class from the very beginning.
Of course, the book readers would say the books are better, which I would agree with, but the show brings the book to life.
However, there are a lot of things where the book and the show differ, so it is possible for both to have a slightly different ending. At this point, the Game of Thrones show is more of a fan service. You can clearly see the difference between Season 4 and Season 6.
So how exactly will it end? I can’t speak for the books, and I’m here to talk about the show. What Melisandre said a couple of episodes ago holds a lot of significance. She said, “I’ve done my part. I’ve brought Ice and Fire together.”
This was a clear implication towards the first meeting of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. So, judging from that, the show has always been about Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. While Jon represents Ice, Daenerys represents Fire. I do not believe that Ice here means the Others.
So, it is possible that Ice and Fire band together to defeat the Great Other. If you look at where the show is heading towards, we are going to see Jon and Dany team up by the end of the season. As the White Walkers invade Westeros, it is inevitable for both Jon and Daenerys to fight the enemy together, and if you look at it, they both represent Ice and Fire respectively.
Jon was the Lord Commander, he let the Wildlings pass through the wall, he became King in the North, it is obvious Jon Snow is the ‘Ice’ here.
Meanwhile, Daenerys Targaryen has three Dragons, she is the unburnt, she did just as well as Jon in the Essos, so I believe her to be ‘Fire’. Together, both Jon and Daenerys will defeat the White Walkers. However, this is Game of Thrones we’re talking about. There’s gotta be someone dying in the process.
It is possible that either Jon or Daenerys Targaryen will die, or maybe both of them will die. GRRM confirmed the ending for Game of Thrones will be bittersweet. So, if the White Walkers are to be defeated, a price must be paid. So, either Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen will die, or they will give up their ambitions of being Kings and Queens.
But, that’s just what I think. I don’t expect you guys to think just like me. You can leave your views below in the comments section and let me know what you think.
What Has Really Happened To Bran Stark?
Bran Stark has had a rough ride on Game of Thrones. He fell from a tower, saw the death of his father, and even saw Winterfell get taken by Theon Greyjoy. He soon met Jojen and Meera Reed, and together they set out to meet the Three Eyed Raven. Bran was taught a lot of stuff there, about Greenseeing, and the past of this world.
But due to his foolishness, he allowed the Night King to kill the Three Eyed Raven.
Bran is the only person who can see the history, and he has evolved into the Three Eyed Raven himself. While there is nothing wrong with that, he seems to have lost his real identity. He isn’t Bran Stark anymore. He’s someone else entirely.
Bran has reached Winterfell and we saw how he acted when he was greeted by Sansa, or even by Arya. Back in Spoils of War, when Meera wanted to say farewell to him, his didn’t know how to react.
Bran knows more about everyone else than he does about himself. He is now the Three Eyed Raven himself. So, it is obvious that warging, and things like that take up most of time. Isaac Hempstead-Wright, the actor who plays Bran in the show, has had his say on this.
“It’s just this whole idea that Bran has become a much smaller part of the character’s brain, when before 100% of his head was taken up with being Bran Stark. Now, that’s just one tiny file in a huge system. But certainly, he’s almost completely a different character. He acts utterly differently, and really any semblance of personality he used to have has gone”
He then went on to say what the future holds for Bran Stark, and how his abilities may be helpful later on the show.
He said, “That said, we’ve been waiting for this to happen since the beginning. It’s Bran’s fate to become the Three-Eyed Raven.
