Everything We Know About Game of Thrones Season 8
It Might Not Matter Who Sits on the Iron Throne
The Iron Throne has been the sole focus of many of the characters on GOT since it began. With the threat of the White Walkers bearing down, it may become increasingly irrelevant considering they could all get wiped out. In Daenerys’s vision at the end of season two, she saw the throne room completely destroyed.
If the fight against the White Walkers comes to King’s Landing, the Throne itself could be destroyed. Of course, what that really signifies is that the humans in this story have always been focused on the wrong thing. Who sits on the throne doesn’t matter if there’s no one left to rule over.
