Watch this: [19659008] Game of Thrones season 8 finale: Our watch has ended


After the credits rolled on The Iron Throne, the very last episode ever and a wave of relief washed over everyone, there were some glaringly obvious questions left to answer.

The series never answered.

The series never answered Here's how to take note: You're entering Spoiler Town.

Of course, if you're over asking questions and would you rather get answers, you can read our full recap of the final episode which goes deep on the fate of the Iron Throne or now the show is finally over.

Hey, uh … the realm's most powerful weapon is just roaming in the East. The equivalent of a nuclear bomb with wings. Just roaming around, presumably eating all the sheep and goats that graze in Essos. That can not be safe for any body. We've seen Drogon torch little boys! What if some enterprising magician or pirate works out of the way to catch a drug? The Game of Thrones just starts all over again.

Drogon down, presumably with his waring abilities. Why can not he just go into Drogon and then dive as far down the ocean as possible and leave him there? We'll never know.

The Dothraki Horde

There are a few burning questions from the final episode that relate to the Dothraki, the horse-bound warriors who eat hearts, and seemed completely obliterated by the Battle of Winterfell. Remarkably, Dany's torching King's Landing.

Daenerys, who finally helped them cross the narrow sea. It seems bizarre we do not get any repercussions of that action and how it affects the horde. Jonathan has been captured and held prisoner by the Unsullied. He's alive, totally fine – just a little more beardy. Dothraki.

Second: The entire Dothraki horde are now in Westeros. Are we just to believe them … go home? Their leader is so dead and they just let it be? What are they going to do now? Westeros? These dudes are petrified of the water!

The Dothraki problem leaves behind one of the most confusing questions of the show. Even though it was problematic, it would have been easier to say goodbye to the horde at the hands of the King's Army Night, back in episode 3.

Daario Naharis

Daari-no more.


Remember ol 'Daario Naharis? The Tyroshi mercenary that was once Dany's adviser and lover boy? At the end of season 6, as Dany readies her assault on Westeros, she leaves Daario at Mereen with a small army to defend the Bay of Dragons. Da's what a pretty noble warrior and mobile phone with a blade of his or her love of Dany inspired her to leave him in the East – it would be too much of a

The Honeycomb and the Jackass

One of the series long-running secrets, Tyrion's story about bringing a honeycomb and a jackass to a brothel, is a legend in its own right , The Joke Has Been Taken Two Times Before The Final – When He Is A Prisoner At The Eyrie, In Season 1 And During A Scene In The Season 6 Where He Shares Wine With Gray Worm And Missandei.

At the small council meeting in the finale's final minutes, he starts the story again and – for a fleeting moment – it seems that we are finally listening to the story ends. Then the camera cuts away. Boo.

Bran the Bro

There's a lot of questions about our new King: What's on Earth is Bran's purpose in this world?

Bran takes over the three-eyed Raven and, according to Samwell, becomes the world's memory. He stores all of the realm's stories and histories in his brain. So he can "warg", taking control of other living beings, but his eyes glaze over and he becomes useless. Bran the Broken has stated, multiple times, that's no longer Brandon Stark. But that power opens up even bigger, scarier questions.

Could he see all the death and destruction that Dany's going down on the people of King's Landing? If he did, is not he somewhat complicit in that genocide? That's accessory to murder! Bran's lakes was crimes and just let them go unpunished. Do not give me the sob story "he can not change things that will happen". He turned CNET's second favorite character

Bran's powers so, in a way to suggest that no one wants any free will. It's best not to think about it.

Just thinking about all those crimes was I forgot to stop.


Varys' birds

Though some of the most powerful lords and ladies in Westeros make the decision to sit on the new seat of power, it's not clear immediately , If Varys did get some ravens away (we are lead to believe this is unlikely but …) before being dracarys'd, then the word of Jon's parentage wants to be filtered throughout the kingdoms by now. [19659011] There's surely going to be some that's not all-powerful god-man that can literally control human bodies with his magic as the almighty ruler.

No Iron Throne, but an Iron Bank

Thrones gone.


The Iron Bank of Bravos was introduced early on in Thrones' story, but it's only in Season 4 when it really comes into its own. The bank is notorious for its debts and works with both Stannis and Davos and eventually Cersei. In season 7, the bank sends Tycho Nestoris to collect the debts from the Lannisters owe.

Jaime and Bronn head to Highgarden and ransack the place. They squirrel their back to King's Landing before Dany's forces attack the famous LOOT TRAIN battle. Before the battle, we see Tycho for the last time, chatting away with Cersei at Maegor's Holdfast. Cersei explains: "Rest assured, Your Grace," he says.

Cersei required more from the Iron Bank to hire the Golden Company and the Dashing Harry Strickland before being crumpled by bricks. Did you pay the bank back? With what money? We know there's a lot of gold left for the King because of the final small council meeting in the final lake bickering between Davos and Bronn. Will the Iron Bank come to collect their debt from Tyrion, the last Lannister?

Arya's White Horse

Plot horse

Helen Sloan / HBO

Two words: glue factory. Wait, no, I mean: plot hole.

King's Landing at the end of the penultimate episode, Arya rides out of King's Landing at a gallop and then Landing in the next episode? It's a jarring about-face I just want to go more preposterous should you ever decide to binge watch the final season. Shadowfax, you'll have to keep wondering.

The Prince / Princess That Promised What It's For?

Do not even ask start to think about this prophecy. It only wants to end in misery. While you're at it, any questions about the Night King or the Lord of Light you should forget about too.

Essentially, prophecy was a big part of the book series, but it never quite came into its own in the television show. Whether or not the writers just forgot is really on an open-ended question right now. The promised prequel however, may reveal some of the secrets of the final season –

Flat Earth Theory

If the theory of planetary formation holds true for Westeros, the world they live on should be round. If you continue to sail West, eventually, you'll find yourself back in Westeros. Arya's journey may have been remarkably short, depending on how much the world is. In a realm that has dragons – gigantic flying beasts that roam wherever they want – and power-hungry tyrants, is not it just a little strange that has ever ventured west?

Even in the exploration days in the real world, people were sailing in the unknown almost as soon as we could sail. According to the books, the Sunset Sea is dangerous, but … uh … dragons?

Game of Thrones is completely flat and exists on the back of four elephants back of a giant turtle. I wonder what Kyrie Irving thinks.
