Jon Snow will NOT sit on the Iron Throne

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS!

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, you’ve probably seen the trailer for season 6. If not, here it is.

I’ve read the books, seen tens of videos on YouTube, interviews with the cast, with the directors, with George RR Martin. I’ve read a lot of theories about how it’s gonna end. A lot of them revolve around Jon Snow/ Targaryen and Daenerys Targaryen.

If you think the story will end with Jon and Daenerys married and ruling over Westeros, you have seen too many Disney movies and you did not understand anything from GoT. There is no way Jon Snow will ever sit on that throne (if there is gonna be a throne left). And here’s why.

If you’re obsessed with the show (like… erm… me), you’re probably already convinced that Jon is a Targaryen. And he probably is. I think we’re gonna find out in season 6. Or at least get more hints. Anyway, even if he is a Targaryen, so his claim to the throne would be even stronger that Daenerys’s, Jon will not sit on the throne because he will not want it. He is not Ned Stark’s son, but he was raised as one! And we all know Ned never wanted to be King. Not even King’s Hand. Jon is in many ways similar to Ned, he wants to do his duty, always with honor and the greater good in mind, but at the same time he wants a peaceful life.

Jon Snow would not know how to be a king. I think he would be pretty terrible at it, if I’m being honest.

Also, George RR Martin said he wanted to give the story a bitter sweet end. So, yeah, Jon Snow on the Iron Throne will not happen!

However, this is how I think it will end:

The Iron Throne will not exist anymore! It’s as simple as that: they will probably have to melt it or something for all that valyrian steel so they can fight the White Walkers. In the massive battle (which will probably take all final season), I think Daenerys and her dragons will die saving the realm from the Wights. I think everyone will go ‘home’ and there will be a combination of the great houses ruling the realm. Sansa can possibly sit on the Throne (Bran will never come back from beyond the wall and Rickon will maybe hold the North or be killed). I think Jon Snow/ Targaryen could possibly be the Lord Commander of the Queensguard (because, let’s be honest! He will never love anyone again after Igritte), with Arya raised to Kinghthood as well. Tyrion would be the Queen’s Hand (no one else could ever do it half as good as him!).

And another thing that hints to Sansa and Tyrion playing a massive role in the story at the end: Tyrion is being protected by Varys and Sansa by Littlefinger. Don’t you imagine for one second that these two, who have been the only constant in the realm since before Robert Baratheon took over the throne, would help Sansa and Tyrion without having an interest. Littlefinger and Varys are the only two visionaries in this story and they will remain close to the next King/ Queen.

I might be right or I might be talking a load of rubbish. However, I’m sure that Jon Snow will NOT sit on the Iron Throne. Ever.

And I’ll leave you with something a fan came up with. And I love it!

When winter comes…

You’ll hear no lions roar…

No stags grazing the fields…

No roses growing in the meadows…

No snakes in the sand…

The krakens will freeze where they swim…

The flayed men will rot and wither…

No trouts swimming in the river and no falcons flying in the air…

Not even the dragons’ breath will warm you in your halls.

Only the wolves howl in the night… Winter is coming!
