GAME OF THRONES will come to a dramatic conclusion with its eighth and final series next year and fans have been busy speculating about how the hit HBO series will come to an end.
The final series of Game of Thrones will see Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) and her new lover Jon Snow (Kit Harington) prepare to go into battle with the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) and his army of the dead.
Meanwhile, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is plotting to destroy the Mother of Dragons and the King in the North so that she can continue to rule Westeros without any enemies.
As part of her plan to kill the two leaders, she enlisted the help of Euron Greyjoy who was last seen leaving the Queen’s side in the season seven finale after seeing a wight.
Cersei later revealed to her brother Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) that he did not run away but has gone to meet with the Golden Company to hire more soldiers to join the Lannister army.
While she may be confident with her plan, fans are certain that this will be Cerise’s downfall as she will be betrayed by the Golden Company.
One fan theory suggests that Daenerys will intercept the Golden Company and convince them to fight for her instead.
Reddit user LuckyQuestion noted that Daenerys could visit the Iron Bank in order to enlist their help or she could sent Jorah Mormont (Iain Glenn).
“Dany visits Iron Bank,” they wrote. “The Iron Bank doesn’t want to back a loser, so if Dany rides a dragon to the Iron Bank it would be a very impressive way to start a discussion that would end the Iron Bank support of Cersei
“Also, the history of Braavos should make it easier for them to support ‘The Breaker of Chains’.”
They went on to add an alternative: “Jorah to the rescue. Jonah sails or flies to meet with the Golden Company to convince them to support Dany because she is going to win and is a Targaryen.
“The S7 Histories and Lore confirmed that Jorah fought for the Golden Company and it’s Targaryen founding so it should be hard for the Golden Company to fight against Dany.”
Of course the Golden Company’s allegiance in the final season will depend on which of the two offer them the most amount of money.
Will Cersei learn that she has been betrayed by Euron and the Golden Company?
It comes after Nathalie Emmanuel, who stars as Missandei, hinted her character will be killed off in the final run.
“I have had some periods out of work because schedules and they’re shooting stuff I’m not in,” she told Express.co.uk.
“But I’ve done quite a bit already and it’s been going really well. It’s really exciting!
“I can’t say much but it’s going well and as far as I know everyone’s saying it’s going well so that’s good.”
Speaking about the final series and leaving the show behind, the actress added: “I can’t even think about it, I’m not ready for that conversation.
“I am enjoying the time because I know when it’s over it’s gonna take a minute for it to sink in that I’m not going back to see everyone next year.”
