Four Game of Thrones endings no one would see coming© HBO Watch: The promo video for the final season of Game of Thrones. Today, the biggest TV show of our time comes to an end. After eight seasons over eight years, the series finale of Game of Thrones airs at 11am AEST time on Monday.

It's all been building up to this: arcs will be resolved, characters will face the consequences of their actions and maybe Peter Dinklage will finally nail a convincing English accent.

Theories have abounded about what the final episode could hold. But there are a few possibilities no one would see coming.

Game of Thrones has ended, with a series finale that brought the story full circle, broke the wheel, and saw a new ruler crowned in Westeros. Fans will no doubt be dissecting what Game of Thrones ' ending means for many years to come , and there are still Martin's books to add extra context and

So, will the ending of Game of Thrones reveal that the Night's Watch is the sword that will destroy the Night King? Maybe… but it would be a bit of a damp squib. Let's hope that this one doesn't count as foreshadowing, and was more just spitballing – on the assumption no - one outside his publisher's

Many point to the execution of Ned Stark in the penultimate episode of Season 1 as the moment GoT proved it was a different kind of TV show. Killing off the main character with no warning was a bold move from the showrunners, and Ned's death proved the catalyst for many of the events of the following seasons.

But what if he never actually died?

We never saw the moment Ned's head left his body, which may have been a tasteful artistic choice - or it could have been a bluff. At the last moment, Ned was dragged through a secret trapdoor as Ser Ilyn Payne brought his sword down on the neck of a mannequin with tousled hair and a scruffy beard.

'Game of Thrones' Fan Petition Demands HBO to Remake Final Season

'Game of Thrones' Fan Petition Demands HBO to Remake Final Season Some fans are very, very mad that their favorite show isn't ending the way they want it to.

We haven’t seen much of Bran’s warging this season, so it feels like its time is due. When you look at the names of some of the most important castles in Westeros, what do you see ? If there’s any justice in the game of thrones — and that is certainly still up for debate — that big ol’ spiky chair has got to go.

Photo: HBO. When I picture the deaths of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons, the first word that comes to mind is obscene. The dragons are technical filmmaking achievements of a scale and quality never before seen on television.

The Stark patriarch was then put in the Westeros witness protection programme, given the new name 'Ted' and has spent the last several years living in blissful isolation in a village in Dorne. But when Ted hears what happened to King's Landing - and receives rumours his own beloved daughter was among those wandering helplessly in the ash - he bolts back to claim the Iron Throne for himself.

Maybe he'll pose as that unnamed new Dornish prince who's been mentioned a few times, or maybe he'll reveal his true identity. Either way, winter is coming back - and he'll be royally pissed about what's happened to the rest of his family in the meantime.

2: White Walker's return

The ice zombies from beyond the Wall were introduced in the very first episode of GoT, and the threat they posed gradually built up until they destroyed the Wall and marched into Westeros at the end of Season 7. The human characters would have to put aside their political squabbles and unite as one if they were to have the slightest chance of surviving this great existential danger.

Sophie Turner Says Fans Will Be "Upset" With Sansa's 'Game Of Thrones' Ending

Sophie Turner Says Fans Will Be Sophie Turner has revealed that she thinks fans will be "upset" with Sansa Stark's ending in the final episode of 'Game of Thrones.' WARNING: This article contains spoilers for episode five of 'Game of Thrones' season eight Considering episode five of Game of Thrones didn't feature Sansa Stark (or her Winterfell crew) at all, fans have been left wondering: what's going to happen to her? Will she be affected by Daenerys Targaryen's descent into Mad Queen-dom? Will she come out scot-free and inherit the North? Will she make a surprise play for the throne (potentially with Tyrion Lannister)? Whatever her path, Sophie

I didn’t hate the ending to Game of Thrones . The ending I’ve been pulling for might be the opposite of what you hoped to see . The writers allowed us to connect with different characters, feel different emotions, want different things… all from the same show.

And then all the White Walkers were defeated in Episode 3. Satisfying though it was to watch Arya turn the Night King into shaved ice, it was an oddly simple end to what had been the overarching threat for the duration of the entire show.

But what if one White Walker survived? What if they've spent the last three episodes trudging to King's Landing to avenge their fallen brethren? What if, just as Jon/Daenerys/Sansa/a dragon/Gilly sits down triumphantly on the melted remains of the Iron Throne, a blue-eyed figure emerges from the rubble of the Red Keep and kills the newly-appointed human ruler?

Surely the White Walkers aren't as easily beaten as the Battle of Winterfell suggested - that would just be bad writing!

Daenerys Targaryen is a fan favourite due to her rags-to-riches story arc, her determination to end slavery and her enviably intricate hairstyles.

So it was somewhat shocking to see her ignore the cries of surrender from innocent people and burn King's Landing to the ground for no reason in Episode 5. This is surely the end of the road for Dany: there's no coming back from such a monstrous crime against humanity.

Who took the Iron Throne in the Game Of Thrones finale?

Who took the Iron Throne in the Game Of Thrones finale? Whether the finale of Game of Thrones was everything you’ve ever dreamed of, or your worst possible scenario, one thing’s for certain: it’s over. So, how did we finally get here? And what happened? SPOILERS AHEAD! Whether the finale of Game of Thrones was everything you've ever dreamed of, or your worst possible scenario, one thing's for certain: it's over.

Unless...it wasn't Dany who killed thousands of citizens, but her evil identical twin. Episode 6 could reveal the real Dany has spent the last several seasons chained up in whatever cave she locked her dragons in at the end of Season 4. In her place has been an unknown fourth Targaryen sibling with the same excellent hair but an insatiable desire for mass murder.

The finale will reveal it was all a big mistake: evil Dany will be executed/imprisoned/sentenced to community service rebuilding the Wall, and the real Mother of Dragons will be free to rule the Seven Kingdoms as the fair and loving queen we all know and love. #girlpower!

4: It was all a dream

The go-to twist ending for any high school creative writing assignment, revealing that the entire plot took place in a character's imagination would be the greatest possible GoT ending for the sheer amount of mind-ruining rage it would cause.

Imagine: Bran wakes up in a cold sweat, a young be-fringed boy with the full use of his legs again. Catelyn Stark rushes into her son's bedroom to comfort him while Ned smiles from the doorway. Outside the window we see Robb and Theon in the Winterfell courtyard teaching Rickon how to run in a zigzag should he ever need to, while six direwolves can be seen sleeping in one big happy alive pile.

6 Things You Might Have Missed in 'The Iron Throne,' Game of Thrones's Series Finale

6 Things You Might Have Missed in 'The Iron Throne,' Game of Thrones's Series Finale Emotions were running high while watching the final episode, with many small details likely going unnoticed. Here are six things you might’ve missed in the episode.

"Mother, Father, I had the strangest dream," Bran says.

"Hush Bran, you're safe now," Catelyn says. "We're all safe."

"There must always be a Stark in Winterfell - and here we all are!" Ned quips. Everyone laughs, the frame freezes and the credits roll.

There would be riots in the streets. The markets would crash. The Queen would have to abdicate. It would be anarchy, and there's no TV show that could bring about the downfall of civilisation quite like Game of Thrones.
