With only two episodes left in the final season of HBO hit show, Game of Thrones, fans are craving some closure for this epic tale spanning nine years. The entirety of the series has been built on the phrase “Winter is Coming”, a phrase coined by the House Stark patriarch Ned Stark, and after witnessing the last episode in the Battle of Winterfell, winter has come and gone.

While closure has come for the battle against the Night King and his army, curious fans are eager to see who will actually win the game of thrones. The secrets to the episodes are well kept and with only two more episodes, each episode becomes more high stress to see if your favorite character will die.

Many have theorized of the finale, stating their claims as to who will end up on the Iron Throne, from the heroic Jon Snow to the wicked Cersei Lannister. Some even believe that at the end no one will be on the throne and everyone will be dead. A theory eerily reminiscent to the popular Valyrian phrase “Valar Morghulis” meaning “All Men Must Die.”

Thus far every episode has had fans on their toes, from the heartbreak of losing fan favorites to excitement from seeing characters save the day. As the show is coming to an end, there are so many loose ends that need to be cleared up in this last coming episodes. The storylines of Game of Thrones will end but rumors of spinoff prequels are in the mix.

Game of Thrones is one of many popular franchises coming to an end, from the Avengers to the final episode of the Star Wars trilogies. These beloved shows mark the end of an era for many people who have followed each story from beginning to end.

As the end is to come, think back to one of the most iconic quotes from the show as said by Cersei Lannister, “When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die.”
