Before I delve into these (alleged) spoilers, be forewarned: this could potentially spoil the entire ending of Game of Thrones, as the Game of Thrones season 8 ending has apparently leaked. While it’s a rumor at this point, it is making the rounds on 4chan, Facebook, and Reddit. This version was found on a private facebook group so, so you cannot see the post, but if you join you will be able to. If you do not want to be spoiled, do not read any further.

These spoilers are different than our previous Game of Thrones spoiler leak, though somewhat similar. It’s more believable, from my point of view, because it’s more poetic and it truly symbolizes “A Song of Ice & Fire.” There are some problems with it though, which we will get into after we post the spoilers.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Ending Leaked

  • (From Frikidoctor months ago) Tyrion burns King’s Landing and blames it on Dany.
  • Dany is about to enter the Throne Room and Jon meets her there.
  • The roof in the Throne Room collapses, killing Jaime and Cersei.
  • Jon kills Dany for what he believes she’s done (speculation based on Tyrion’s actions; leaks says he kills her for what she’s done and has become. Tyrion has been leaked as the traitor for months now, even by Frikidoctor, who still believes he’s the traitor.)
  • Bran tells Jon about Dragonglass’ ability to resurrect the dead (think Benjen.)
  • Bran continues to tell Jon about the seasons in Westeros and how there always needs to be a Night King/Queen to maintain balance.
  • Jon stabs Dany through the heart with Dragonglass. He sees her eyes go blue.
  • Bran wargs into Drogon and carries Dany beyond the wall.
  • Dany is taken to the same forest we see in the very first episode.
  • Jon joins the Night’s Watch as the 1000th Lord Commander.
  • He and Dany meet from time to time (this may have been foreshadowed, remember “we could spend 1,000 years here and no one would notice?”), paralleling the Night Queen and the 13th Lord Commander, who was a Stark.
  • The final scene is narrated by Bran with a flashback about the 13th Lord Commander and his lover, the Night Queen, who is now Dany.
  • Dany is animated by Ice, Jon is animated by Fire (confirmed by GRR Martin via Beric.) This is ironic since Dany, as a Targaryen, is Fire, and Jon is both a Targaryen and a Stark, literally Ice and Fire. Both are dead but re-animated with their consciousness’ intact.
  • Jon and Dany’s story, their tragedy, is “A Song of Ice & Fire.”

This would actually be the perfect ending for Game of Thrones, thoroughly poetic, and would be a very typical GRR Martin ending. While some would still be upset, not everyone will be happy. Dany would still be a Queen in a sense though?

There are some logical problems with this ending though. How does Bran end up with Jon in King’s Landing? This may not be unfeasible though, as I cannot see them leaving Sansa out of the final two episodes without a scene with Cersei, and Bran still has a larger part to play. She could easily bring Bran with her.

Other than that, the ending is near-perfect. Dany was never going to end up on the Iron Throne, and both her and Jon’s fates are tragic. Given this scenario, they are both killed and resurrected by fire and ice. This is a central theme of the show. It also ties into the mythology of the series nicely, as fans of the books are familiar with the story of the Night Queen, but fans of the TV show aren’t. Yes, the show is called Game of Thrones, but at its core, it’s about Jon and Dany, their journies, and ultimate relationship. This would fulfill all of that. Everything would also come full circle as Dany is taken to the forest where the first scene in the series took place. The story ends where it began.

Regarding the other leak we recently posted, we have no way of knowing if any of that is accurate. Our guess is that the leaker saw Episode 4, watched the rest of the season, and merely put out spoilers for the rest of the season that were feasible, with some that were completely ludicrous to test the waters and troll people in order to create outrage after The Long Night did exactly that.

This ending would bring everything full circle and fit the “bittersweet” ending that GRR Martin described. And D&D are going based off of what Martin told them his ending is.

To put it simply, it is perfect, if this is in fact how Game of Thrones ends. It’s the ending we deserve.
