The highly-anticipated series finale for Game of Thrones is right around the corner and it’s safe to say there are still a lot of questions left to be answered. In the final season, we’ve watched some pretty epic battle scenes, watched the rise (and demise) of certain characters, and collectively cried when Jon didn’t give Ghost a goodbye pet.
Here are all the people that are somehow still alive going into the finale, and all the things in the storyline that will need to be wrapped up. Hopefully, they can do it all in 79 minutes.
Spoiler Warning: don’t read this if you aren’t all caught up and ready for the finale!
Daenerys Has Gone Full Mad Queen
At the end of “The Bells” we saw Daenerys light up King’s Landing—despite the city surrendering first—so we can all assume she’s lost her moral compass and become a full-blown Mad Queen. While this means Daenerys has achieved her lifelong goal of taking over the Iron Throne, it’s not going to go as planned.
Daenerys’ choice to burn thousands of innocent people left a lot of her closest allies questioning her power. The finale will need to show if she truly ends up like her father.
