The final season of HBO’s fantastically successful series Game of Thrones is coming soon—along with winter—and it’s anyone’s guess who will end up on the throne. While fans wait with bated breath to see who survives, who dies, and who will rule, guesses and predictions abound. HBO is naturally tight-lipped about it, but their new character posters might give a clue as to what to expect.
The posters feature the show’s popular characters. The posters of course feature those that are in contention for the Iron Throne, including Jon Snow (who we now know is also Aegon Targaryen), the Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen, and Cersei Lannister in an armor-plated dress. Other characters are also depicted on the throne. Jaime Lannister appears sans armor (interesting choice while his sister and lover is dressed in armor), Tyrian Lannister who looks very comfortable in the throne, Arya Stark with Needle, and Sansa Stark in a dragon scale dress. Finally, there are a few more that maybe you didn’t consider for the throne, such as Bran Stark looking contemplative, Brienne with Oathkeeper, Ser Davos, Euron Greyjoy, Grey Worm, Ser Jorah, Melisandre, Missandei, Sam, Theon Greyjoy, the Spider, and the Hound. Of course, the Night King is also seated on the throne.
So, with 21 characters seated on the throne, it doesn’t seem like much of a prediction as to who will come out of the game victorious. Regardless, this winter should be captivating.
