There are a LOT of theories out there about how the final season of Game of Thrones is going to end. This is the big moment that we've been building to for years! Everyone wants to be the first to guess the right answer... except me. You see, this is not a theory about how Game of Thrones WILL end.

    PLEASE!! Do a game of thrones theory about Bran being the real villian of the show. That he saw how things would end and did nothing to stop it because he was evil, and let it all happen to begin with. So he would get the crown.

    Honestly I know the shows over, but I think it would’ve been cool if the white walkers went and brought back all the important characters from past seasons (Joffrey, Bolton, heck even Ned) and made them undead warriors, for once last great battle

    The children of the forest aren't innocent either. I feel that they also fall under these rules. They tried to defend "Their" home by creating white walkers creating a war. Twice. When bran and them arrived at the 3 eyed raven, they were throwing bombs seemingly at the white walkers, but in reality they were throwing them at brans party because they hate humans. (Ok, I started to watch too much bridge4 on youtube one night.) If the last one would have thrown the bomb at bran - in a selfish act like they were doing before, vs blowing herself up with the zombies, it wouldn't have given them enough time to escape. If she would have stayed prideful humans would have died without brans help - which you would think is what she actually wanted, but you know... as humans watching a show where humans want to triumph, it just wont happen. So she sacrificed herself giving up her pride and letting us, the audience have a human victory ending. But hey, thats just MY theory. hahahaha. *shrugs* I don't care that much to argue back and forth on this. take it as you will.

    Hey MatPat, can you try and find out how strong the fire from the dragon is? If it’s able to make things explode on impact and melt cinder blocks then it should be strong. How strong would it be compared to a real life grenade explosion or even a nuke?

    Honestly though? That would have been a far better ending than what we got. I would have been far more satisfied with the Battle of Winterfell ending with only a handful of characters surviving, having to flee, and the rest of the remaining episodes being that karma comeuppance coming to fruition. It would have been the worst case scenario ending, but like you pointed out in this video, it would have fitted the themes of the story way more than what we got.

    Man I wish that the writers stuck with the Night King ending because this shows that this makes so much sense. I still don’t think it’s the worst ending in tv but I still feel they missed a golden opportunity to make a truly bleak and heartfelt message. A message that says, “the evil that you should fear is here; look past your pride and pay attention.”

    When even in the books the white walkers weren’t so much of a threat. I feel in the show they hyped them up to just give them an ending that was really just a “Sorry you wasted eight years of your life”

    The reason this theory fails is MatPat got lazy. Instead of doing a proper theory and analyzing the clues laid out to figure out how it would end he just basically decided it didn't matter. This is how it "should" end. Fuck all the clues that say otherwise.

    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.
