Game of Thrones is over but the finale leaves behind some major unanswered questions. In the final episode, “The Iron Throne”, Daenerys Targaryen won the war against Cersei Lannister but her triumph proved to be short-lived as Tyrion Lannister conspired with Jon Snow to save Westeros from the Mad Queen – by Jon killing Dany.
After Daenerys‘ demise, theGame of Thrones finale resolved the lingering plotlines of the series. Despite the Iron Throne being destroyed, Westeros still needed a ruler and the lords and ladies of Westeros chose Bran Stark as their King, dubbing him Bran the Broken. Tyrion was appointed Hand of the King and created a new Small Council to help him rule the Six Kingdoms. Meanwhile, Sansa Stark withdrew the North from the Seven Kingdoms and now rules it as Queen in the North. With their Queen dead, Daenerys’ loyal Unsullied and Dothraki armies left Westeros and sailed east. As for Jon Snow, his true heritage as Aegon Targaryenultimately didn’t matter; instead of being executed for killing Daenerys, he was sentenced to return to the Night’s Watch.
