Here’s how Joffrey thinks “Game of Thrones” will end
By now, almost everyone, their raven, and possibly their horse has their own theory and wants for how Game of Thrones might end. Yet, this is Westeros and, really, we should all know better. Why? Because there’s a risk in every episode that our favorite character or the one we’re rooting for could get slaughtered. It’s part of why we love the show so much, right?
While it’s probably safe to say that we weren’t necessarily sorry for Joffrey Baratheon when he was poisoned during his actual wedding (LOL), we do kinda miss is masochistic and psychopathic ways.
But who does Joffrey, or rather the actor who played him, Jack Gleeson, think will or won’t win the Iron Throne when Game of Thrones comes to an end?
Speaking at Comic-Con in New York, Jack explained how a fan had actually approached him with a theory that he (and now us, tbh) feels is pretty convincing.
"[S]omeone's going to like melt down the Iron Throne because it has the Valyrian steel that will overcome the White Walkers," he explained, revealing what the fan had said to him. "So, I think that's kind of a cool idea — the monarchy is literally dissolved."
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG – does anyone else sort of find this whole idea totally legit?
We can picture it now: Daenerys returns from exile with her dragons and usurps whomever is ruling at that stage. Then, after being united with Jon Snow, one of her dragons melts down the throne and the pair use the Valyrian steel to defeat the White Walkers, who by now have invaded the Seven Kingdoms.
Obvs, we’re pretty sure a White Walker infested worldn’t be ideal, which might explain why the kingdoms become fractured. Also, in season one of the show, just before Robb Stark is declared the King of the North, people are already lamenting how one central figure can’t understand the troubles of those in the north.
Of course, this is obviously just another Game of Thrones fan theory, but as we’ve said before we do love them. Also, this sounds pretty convincing even if it may be a bit saccharine for the show and how blood thirsty it is.
Regardless, the fact that there are only two more seasons of Game of Thrones left means that we’ll know what happens in the end in the not too distant future.
