Dragon-sized spoilers you can use to win money in Vegas.
Season 8 is finally here! The armies are gathered and alliances formed so all that remains is The Epic Mother to End All Final Battles. Who will creep out of the bloodbath and finally sit on the Iron Throne? Well, when you play the Game of Thrones you either win or die, so here are Grinsane’s Official Predictions for who’s going down (and when) and who’s finally grabbing that fancy pants chair.
That’s right, Ser Pounce to victory and all of the spoils that entitles (unlimited cat crunchies, dragon nip, nice cat furniture).
BUT SER POUNCE IS DEAD
Shut up. What a pile of dragon dung when those show runners claimed Pounce was executed by Cersei. I mean, it’s believable, but…
You don’t just kill compelling major characters offscreen. That’s Screenwriting 101. All of the expired wolves in the show had visceral, visible deaths and even the dragons are taking hit points now. Unless… that’s right… Ser Pounce is actually coming back.
They lied about Snow, too. Said he was dead while filming him in secret. And even if Pounce really did undergo nine terrible deaths at the hands of the Corrupter of the Realm, what is death in this show anymore? Season One, yes, a death was a death was a death (*sniff*, Ned). But now? Bringing a cat back to life should be easy work for Qyburn or Melissandra not to mention the Lord of Light who is resurrecting folks faster than a Fortnite reboot van.
Ultimately, with all of the hot tempers in Westeros, Pounce is truly the only character cool headed enough to rule that place and give the show the closure it needs. May his reign be long and purrific.
