Warning: Game of Thrones spoilers that would probably make Daenerys mad, ahead!
At this point in Game of Thrones, with only one episode left
, I could actually care less about who ends up on the Iron Throne. As Cersei said way back in season one, “When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die” — this show has always been more about the game than the actual throne. Now, given the reign of terror that plays out in season eight’s penultimate episode, there’s just one question I really care about: who will kill Daenerys? I’m betting on Tyrion.
Before I get into why Dany’s Hand will be the one to kill her, let’s acknowledge the other strong options on the board as we head into episode six. Arya has reason to take down the Mad Queen (who has green eyes, FYI), and her ability to sneak up on just about anyone does suggest she’d be able to slip by Drogon and the Unsullied. There’s also plenty of buzz that Jon will be the one to pull the trigger, since he could easily get close enough to Dany to run her through with Longclaw, and doing so could potentially fulfill the Azor Ahai prophecy.
