Game of Thrones series finale photos keep it mysterious


With just two images to look at for the end of Game of Thrones, it’s time to speculate as much as we can and draw out some analysis.

In retrospect, we’ve been spoiled when it comes to pre-air information about Game of Thrones. Sure, not knowing the titles beforehand has been a little strange, especially considering that titles like “The Bells” are obvious.

Here are our two bets for the series finale title: “Queen of the Ashes” and “The Iron Throne.” There’s no way it’d be called “Endgame,” not with the Avengers taking up all the oxygen in that space.

Our first bet is because of this first photo:

You’ll probably recognize it from the trailer, because it appears there as well, and it seems like the idea that Daenerys will rule over what’s left is now paramount. Granted, it’s possible that there might be a twist, and we’ll have a “King of the Ashes” instead.

The point is that Game of Thrones is hammering in that there are consequences for actions, and a smoldering King’s Landing is one of them.

Tyrion looks like he’s regretting everything, including every choice that has brought him back to the city. There’s almost a somber or mournful note to his expression. We think he’s still outside the Red Keep, so he probably hasn’t been told about anyone finding the bodies of his siblings beneath the Keep.

All the same, the evidence is right there that he did something; he was the last person seen going into where Jaime was being kept, and now Jaime’s dead with Cersei in his arms.

Dare we say that this is the look of a man going to face his fate and the consequences of his actions? Tyrion has a lot of things to regret right now, though, so we could be reaching too far.

Next. Ser Jaime finally lived up to his title on Game of Thrones. dark
