Game of Thrones – Season 6 Finale Predictions

Spoilers for Game of Thrones Season up to Season 6 Episode 9 below.

Content Warning: Very brief mention of rape.

I have purposely avoided any prediction videos since last Sunday’s amazing episode.

Yass slay! Queen of the North!

It was by far the best episode of the season.

I agree with all of this. Sansa may be Queen of the North, but Lady Lyanna is the baddest bitch.

And is a possible contender for the best penultimate episode of all time.

I ship it. Danara forever ♥♥♥

This season saw a grand take back for many of the primary female characters, and by the old gods and the new it was both necessary and satisfying.  It is also exhilarating to note that I did not count a single, solitary rape in the entirety of season either. While I do feel that the story has gone downhill quite a bit, that is one aspect I do not believe is the cause of the decline.

This post is meant to (briefly…gods I hope) go through finale predictions.  As always, I will give credit where its due and where I can find it.  I believe these things will happen in the season ender, but I can not claim to have come up with them myself.  Where I can recall, I will provide links to the source.  So without further ado…

The Mad Queen

There is quite an abundance of textual hints that Cersei Lannister may truly be Aerys, the Mad King’s daughter, instead of being the child of the late Lord Tywin Lannister.  There are many, many theorists who believe this could be true, so I can’t just credit one.  You can search the interwebs to yield quite a few results on forums and YouTube, so I’ll leave you to that work if you so wish.

I can give credit for the prediction that Cersei will burn down King’s Landing in either desperation to avoid punishment for her crimes, rage at her dispossession, disrespect, and need to endure the judgment of “those beneath her,” or a combination of all and others.  Charlie in Westeros discusses it in nearly all of his videos concerning Season 6 so I can’t pinpoint just one.  I’m certain it’s brought up in his latest endeavor, but I haven’t watched that (or any other) video yet so as not to taint my mind with what’s not already in it.  Whether Cersei will burn the city because Tommen is killed or kill him in the process of avoiding judgment, I can’t say, but that may spark the fulfillment of the valonqar prophecy with the “little brother” being Jaime who strangles her to death upon his return.

A Jon Snow Poll

Game of Thrones is back for its sixth season, and there is one major question on everyone’s lips and heart.  Before I discuss that, I just want to preempt this post by saying I will not be reviewing/analyzing each episode of season 6 as I did last year with season 5.  Though I have been feeling the itch, my efforts didn’t garner as much discourse as I was hoping from any source, so I’m just going to watch/comment on my followed and favorite WordPress, YouTube, and other theorists who have a better following than me.  Also the past seasons posts did a lot of book to show comparisons, and that’s no longer possible as the show has outpaced the books.

The fore mentioned question (as indicated in the title) has to do with our recently and poorly departed Lord Command Snow and how (or if) he will come back.  I am of the mind that Jon is definitely returning, owing to what paradigm he represents, but how shall the dark deed be done?

If you have any other suggestions or theories about what might happen this season, I would love to hear them.

Valar morghulis.
