***WARNING: THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS***
Right then, as the dust settles on King’s Landing following the dramatic – and controversial – events of the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, the finish line is well in sight.
One last episode left- Who is going to win the Game?
We’ve got one more episode, significantly fewer characters, and we’re going to find out once and for all who – if anyone – is going to win the game of thrones, finally.
Whilst we lost some very significant players, there are still a few names in the hat.
Tyrion Lannister is still going on. Obviously Daenerys Targaryen is a tough person to beat. Jon Snow keeps plodding along like the gormless Labrador that he is.
However, there is a growing number of people who think that – rather than end up taking the top job, regardless of whether he wants it or not – Jon Snow could be about to bite the dust and die.
Come on Bear with us on this one.
Jon Snow could be about to bite the dust
When Jon was stabbed up by his fellow Night’s Watch brothers? Well, he was brought back to life after a long while by the Red Woman, Melisandre.
That was because the ‘Lord of Light’ – or whatever that/he is – brought him back to fulfill a purpose he served.
Now, the theory goes that once the Lord of Light is done with you, your purpose is ended and you have to die. Melisandre wasted away into a shrivelled naked heap, Beric Dondarrion got absolutely knackered in by the army of the dead, you can start to form a vague picture.
My GoT prediction : Jon snow will die…
Lord of light brought him for a purpose and that purpose has been served… #GoT

If his purpose was to unite (nearly) everyone against the Night King and defeat him, then mission accomplished. That means he’s ready for the pot.
However, if his destiny was to stop the Mad Queen from destroying all that is left after the war then he’s still got a long way to go.
Jon Snow will surely have to have a crack at Daenerys at some point though, won’t he? Once that is done will he be incinerated by a dragon or some other horrendous fate because his race will effectively be run?
As with just about everything on this show, it’s very tough to predict. We will just have to bite our collective tongue and wait until next Monday, when the final – yes, final – episode of Game of Thrones ever will air.
