Agreed. I've been about 50/50 on that possibility for a really long time now. It would be a really appropriate thematic ending, and I think I'd be happy with it.

I agree with almost all of this. Mankind didn't make the right choices, indeed. All of Westeros is deeply corrupt, indeed. BUT: There are some of them, that actually learned from their mistakes or where good since the beggining. Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, Sam Tarly, Theon Greyjoy, Jamie Lannister, Brienne of Tarth and propably more that I forget. My point is that if we take GOT as a metaphor for our world, white walkers could be, I don't know, even global warming, and they are here to end all of us, but do all of us deserve it? Don't we have nothing good in our history that deserves to survive? I believe that the now "good" characters of the show that I mentioned above should fight a war against white walkers and against the corruption of their society. And I think mankind could win.

I've been saying the White Walkers will win for years... with the final scene, a close up on snow ridden iron throne, the warm voice of Tyrion Lannister narrating a dark, moving piece, "Our price to play the Game of Thrones." Then with seconds left in the episode, a ray of sunlight is cast upon the throne and we hear the playful laugh of children, knowing that indeed there were those who survived, and they will have brighter future, for winter has ended. Roll Credits.

You forgot to say that the children teamed up with the men to defeat the white walkers - putting their petty squabbles behind and winning. Now that the night king is back and Cersei refused to help, the ending is pretty obvious. Only problem is there’s no mention of Azor Ahai here.

That's exactly what George R. R. Martin wanted to show us:
we will get nowhere and just die if countries, religions, races or any other shit keep fighting.
we will die cause of nothing and leave the world for wild nature.

The only one who should be king is Bran.
I don't want him to, I think he's boring .. but he seems to have some sort of calmness that would be good in a leader. He has insight and he is not passionate or driven by emotions. Besides, if we follow your analysis, he is also the given leader. He has never claimed the throne and he is one of the only ones who explicitly said he did NOT want to be king. He has forsaken his Stark identity (now he's more of a weirdo three-eyed raven than a Stark) and he hasn't directly killed someone .. People have sacrificed themselves, but he has never asked them to and it has never been on his request or for him to receive some sort of power.
He might get help from the white walkers in killing everyone in the big houses (he seems to be connected to the nature and the first men and the children of the forest, so maybe he befriends them) and then he might be "elected" king. He doesn't seem keen on ruling a whole lot, so I could imagine some sort of democratic monarchy under Bran. The price for him is the family he has lost along the way. The failure of institutions would be showing since the only reason the white walkers could win is due to the fragmentation of the "south" (of the wall).

Everyone dying is a cop out and not thematically resonant at all. Sure, characters face the consequences of their actions and their lack of political savvy, but not everyone deserves to die for this. I think the iron throne is the biggest red herring in literature sure, but ‘they all die’ is weak.

i don't think that ending with white walkers killing everony is possible, why ? because battle for winterfell will take place in somewhen between 2nd and 3rd episode so if white walkers win i dont really think that there would be 3 80 minutes episodes about them walking south

The last scene is going to be the Night King sitting on the throne bodies all around, and as the camera fades out, he will take off his mask revealing Arya. She whispers "valar morghulis" and the screen goes black. The End.

Aarya was one of my favorite characters (alont with breinne and turion) until her character arc made a weird and unnecessary leap to what she is now. She's nearly emotionless and it doesn't make sense to me.

The lannisters didn't kill jon arryn, it was liza (Nee tully) under the manipulation of littlefinger, and it was Olena Tyrell who poisoned joffrey via sansa's necklace. The Lannister motto is 'Hear me roar', the one you mention is more unofficial. Not like you matpat, your research is always so watertight .
David Gallagher
David Gallagher - 7 hours ago
Edit. Numerous sources state it was baelish and olenna. Although for the life of me that passed me by. I can't quite place his motives.. I'll have to have another look. Olenna never says anything when jaime takes highgarden outright admitting it I still stand that the queen of thorns was the main antagonist in joffreys poisoning. Edit 2: baelish provided the poison apparently. Missed that completely. Olenna still killed him though. If someone hands you a gun and you kill someone. You are the murderer.

Littlefinger poisoned Jon Arryn (Arryn's wife did but she was manipulated by him)! He is actually the reason that Robbert travelled to Winterfell wich led to all the other events!
ShanksyTv - 8 hours ago
my bet is that they're going to lose winterfell because the third episode is the fight for winter fell and if they win then it won't take long to defeat Cersei.

Lysa Aryn and Littlefinger poisoned John Aryn, Lady Olenna poisoned Joffery. There is a Democracy in Westeros, and its the family you hate the most. The Greyjoys choose their King through an election. Arya couldn't give up being a Stark, that's why she hid needle the only thing a value from her family. Other issues with you theory is undermine Bran's Greensight which allows viewing of past and future events, a huge tactical asset. Unified Forces regardless of origins, pride and governments; take out tyranny has been an historical example that's been done many times in our own history. George RR Martin takes a lot from history.

If the white walkers kill everyone and that's how the plot ends then nobody will be interested in the prequels since it all builds up to nothing.

It's an interesting thought and there is a lot of truth. But there is another truth at play that the theorist ignored.
Redemption. Jamie's story is a key piece. A kinslayer in an incestuous relationship with his sister, a father who basically abandoned his children. Yet here he is going North to help the living.
People are complex and that complexity may prove to be the difference.
Gootothesecond - 12 hours ago
This seems to fall into the same flawed thinking that the story has trained its audience based on several points but I'll touch on two.

1.) Out of the three Baratheon brothers, Stannis was the best choice as king. He was a warrior like Robert, he only lost the Battle of Blackwater Bay because of unexpected reinforcement from Tywin and the Tyrells, yet he understood the intricacies of the law like Renly, he rewarded Daavos' bravery in saving him yet still punished him for breaking the law. Renly was well liked but that doesn't make you a great leader, it just makes you well liked. Who with any power would trust him after after he's proven himself treacherous in backstabbing his own brother? What respect would he gather from commanders like Randyll Tarly after watching him puss out during The War of The 5 Kings?

2.) The institutions aren't the problem, its the people behind them. The Fayth was as bad as the crown until they got someone that tried to effect positive change. The High Sparrow even brought the Lannisters down a few pegs all because he decided to do what's right and did it with conviction.

Basically Westeros has the same problem that we have here in western society, no one brings the smoke to the people who are asking for it. Instead of the entire North coming down on Ramsay with Jon and Sansa as they should've due to Ramsay's actions, the two most powerful houses join him and most of the rest leave him hanging. Instead of rushing Cersei and killing her the moment she refused to help since decorum doesn't matter anymore, they let her ruin everything. The only times people in the story decided to give somebody what the had coming to them, The Fayth and Cersei, Littlefinger killing Joffrey, The Starks standing up to Ramsay then killing Littlefinger, it works.
