Here are Gamblers’ odds on who will get the Iron Throne in Game Of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones is a big show, and it has multiple storylines, but in the end, it’s about the Iron Throne. We have seen many a people try and grab the throne, and we have seen a few shuffle through it, but as the show draws to a close, everybody’s eyes are on the Iron Throne, and who will finally get it. Now, the bookies have revealed their odds on characters that are in the race for the throne. Read on!

HBO planning on parting ways with Amazon Prime Video in 2018

The data comes from Las Vegas sportsbook Bovada, and they have given their odds on about every character that could hold the throne in Season 8. Check out the numbers:

Daenerys Targaryen (2:1)
Jon Snow (2:1)
Bran Stark (3.5:1)
The Night King (10:1)
Tyrion Lannister (12.5:1)
Cersei Lannister (15:1)
Jaime Lannister (15:1)
Sansa Stark (25:1)
Arya Stark (40:1)
Euron Greyjoy (50:1)
Varys (75:1)
Gendry (75:1)
Samwell Tarly (75:1)
Melisandre (100:1)
Theon Greyjoy (100:1)
Jaqen H’ghar (100:1)
Brienne of Tarth (100:1)
Jorah Mormont (100:1)
Bronn (100:1)
Tormund Giantsbane (100:1)
Davos Seaworth (100:1)
The Hound (100:1)
Gilly (100:1)
Daario Naharis (100:1)
Yara Greyjoy (100:1)
The Mountain (150:1)

Now, it’s no surprise that Jon and Daenerys take the cake. Bran seems to be another favorite, having Stark blood, and the extraordinary powers of the Three-Eyed Raven. Following him is the Night King, but if that theory comes to fruition, and Bran turns out to be the Night King, imagine how the odds could go up. After all, we have heard about the end being bittersweet, quite a few times.

Jaime and Cersei hold the same odds, with Tyrion sitting over them, right after the Night King. All in all, the odds seem pretty reasonable. What do you guys think? Whom would you guys bet on? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones fans react to Jon Snow and Ghost reunion in the series finale

Game of Thrones pulled off a sneaky on us. In the fourth episode Season 8, we saw Jon Snow leave Ghost without petting him. In the series finale, Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we saw Jon reunite with Ghost, and the fans loved it. Read on!

Jon had earlier sent Ghost with Tormund to the real North, while he was leaving Winterfell, and he didn’t even pet him. This had upset a lot of fans. However in the series finale, we saw Ghost waiting for Jon at the Wall, and they reunite, resulting in our good boy getting a long pet. The fans took to Twitter to appreciate this:

How did you react to Jon reuniting with Ghost and finally petting him? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones Finale sees Arya Stark finally embracing her old dream

arya stark game of thrones season 8 finale

Game of Thrones series Finale gave each character their dues, some satisfactory and some not so much. But the Stark kids seem to be doing pretty well! Just as Sansa got her childhood wish, Arya Stark too took her first steps in a direction she always wanted to go.

This post contains spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet (but seriously, what are you doing? Hurry up!).

game of thrones sansa finale satisfying end

“What’s West of Westeros?” Arya Stark had asked out back in Season 6. She was talking to Lady Crane, an actress who helped her with a stab wound and let Arya stay at her place. That’s what she really wants, to go off exploring beyond where the maps stop.

She couldn’t then. Arya came back home, avenged her family’s death, saved humanity from the undead invasion and survived the carnage at King’s Landing. All her duties done, and Winter already receding, Arya now goes back to her old dream of becoming an explorer. In the last scenes of Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale, we see Arya sailing on a ship, journeying to the “west of Westeros”.

Arya had always been an anomaly in the rigid society of Westeros. She was expected to marry a lord and bear his children. But Arya never saw herself in that role. That’s why she rejected Gendry’s proposal in episode 4, even though she clearly had affection for him. She knew that marriage, even to someone she loves, will bind her in society’s expectations. Arya rejected that with all her heart.

Game of Thrones may not be as kind to everyone, but I’m glad at least Arya got her happy ending!

In Game of Thrones Series Finale, a new era dawns on the Small Council

small-council-game-of-thrones-finale

By the end of the Game of Thrones Series Finale, Westeros is not as it was before. Some changes are big and are immediately visible, like the fate of the Starks and the Targaryens. But some changes are subtle, yet far more impactful in the long run. One such detail is the all-new Small Council of King’s Landing that is formed after the Last War.

This post contains massive spoilers, so be warned!

In an unexpected twist, Brandon Stark was chosen as the King of the Six Kingdoms (North chose to remain out). And as tradition demands, a small council was formed to aid him in the ruling. As Bran’s chosen Hand, Tyrion Lannister presides over the existent Small Council, whose main work is filling up the vacant posts right now. But the people who get precedence in joining the Small Council is quite interesting.

Here are all of them: Ser Davos Seaworth as Master of Ships, Ser Bronn of Blackwater as Master of Coin, Samwell Tarly as Grand Maester, and Brienne of Tarth as Lord Commander of the Kingsguard. Now let’s have a closer look.

Davos and Bronn are lowborn – one was a smuggler and another a mercenary. Sam is a Black Brother whose rights to hold power positions were forfeited. The Kingsguards are all knights and women cannot be knights in Westeros. Brienne would have been barred out of this position by her gender alone – and yet here she is.

In the deeply feudal society of Westeros, the four principle advisers to the King are people who have no birthright to be there, yet all of them have gone through enough experience to earn their place (Although Bronn’s position seems to be a trade-off regarding his ‘service’ of the Lannister brothers). That’s a quiet revolution going on right there.

With the Iron Throne gone and the hereditary kingship system broken (Bran cannot father children and his successor will have to be chosen), the Small Council’s power and prominence grow tenfold. Democracy or not,  interesting times ahead for Westeros!
