Danny makes a grand entrance by landing a perfect shot with wings silhouetted by drogon and giving victory speech praising her brave soldiers who fought bravely to take over the city where once her ancestors ruled.

Later, Danny commands his soldiers to arrest Tyrion for committing treason and loses her another advisor at the time of need. We can see the transformation of Queen Danny becoming same version of her father, who would kill anyone,who’s not in his support.

They briefly speak about Danny goal and how it’ll lead to destruction on a global level but however, Jon defends at first saying “what happened can’t be undone now but the war is finally over” but after seeing the destruction caused by Danny Jon didn’t had any choice left even though he releases that Tyrion is right and there’s only one way to stop the Danny from becoming Mad Queen.
#4 Danny’s Final Moments
Jon finds danny inside the throne room admiring her efforts and all other things she has to go through to reach and conquer the iron throne. Jon confronts her by asking the why she killed thousands of innocents people to which she replied “I tried to make peace with cersie, she used their innocence against me” Further jon tries to convince danny to forgive Tyrion for his mistakes but all seems to go in vain. Danny tries to share his vision with Jon telling him how they both can make the world a better place and break the wheel together, when it looked like Jon agrees to work beside danny’s, jon takes out dagger and stab her, holding and weeping. In the end, Jon made an impossible choice by killing the woman whom he loved and pledged his eternal loyalty for the greater good for his family and for the world.
#5 Jon Becomes the Queenslayer
Standing all silent in guilt for killing his queen. Drogon reappears and stands face to face against the last targarayen who killed their mother. For a brief moment, everyone thought Drogon in pain of seeing his mother dead would kill the last standing Targaryen but he instead the burns and melts the iron throne which was symbol for ultimate power in westoros. Drogon is heartfelt as he tries to nudge her awake and screams in pain. Danny always referred the dragons as her own kids and seeing this moment was purely heartbreaking. After completely melting the iron throne, Drogon gently lifts Danny and safely flies away with her body.
#6 Bran The Broken
A week after Danny’s death, Tyrion is led out of his cell to face his decision made by the new council men. But before deciding tyrion’s fate, a new monarch has to be made. As the new council debates on who should become the new king of seven kingdoms, Tyrion drops his suggestions by telling them what unites everybody is the power of a story, then identifying the person he says has the “best story” – Bran Stark, who has journeyed beyond the Wall and back to become the all-seeing Three-Eyed Raven.
Everybody seems a bit stunned by this unexpected nomination – except for Bran. Tyrion states that since bran can’t have children, the next leader of westoros would be chosen by people’s vote rather than giving it them by birth right. The council agrees with Tyrion’s suggestion and names bran the broken, first of his name and the ruler of the seven kingdoms. In exchange, bran chooses Tyrion to be his new hand. Moreover, Bran’s ascension to the throne surprised many fans as his story isn’t that bright as compared to other characters. All we’ve seen bran doing this season is sitting around wheel chair and saying weird thigs based on people’s past. At the end, Bran seem to be better choice as king of westeros as he has all his father’s quality and will surely apply for the betterment of people.
#7 Queen of the North
During the council meeting, sansa request Bran the newly appointed king, that the north should remain independent and have its own territory. Since the beginning of season, Sansa has gone through a lot which made her a great leader as well as an intelligent strategist, She has always wanted north to be independent territory and should not fall under anyone’s rule further she even argued with danny to keep winterfell as an independent territory with its own monarch and wardens. Finally, Bran Grants her request and makes north an independent territory. But Thanks to sansa, Citizen of north will remember what lady sansa did to protect the north and its people
As the episode comes to an end so does the story of remaining characters.
#8 Happy ending for Starks
We can, Grey worm, sets off for Naath alone, still in anguish for losing missandei and his queen. Bronn gets what has been promised to him, lordship of high garden and is assigned as master of coins by Brans Administration. The small council comprises of Brienne, Davos, sam and Tyrion. Podrick Payne is assigned as Bran’s new Attendant and has been made the member of kings guard.
Further, Jon is sent back to Night’s watch and reunites with tormound and large group of wildling. Finally, the long waiting scene where every GOT fan was mad about finally happens. Jon reunites with his direwolf ghost and further they headout from castle black alongside with group of wildlings. As the story comes to an end, we can see all the starks scattered to various corners of westeros and beyond. Sansa is finally assigned the queen of winterfell. Arya boards ship and heads towards to the unkown lands west of westeros to learn what lies beyond the part of the world where the map ends. Jon accompanied by tormound, ghost and bunch of widlings head towards farth north.
Throught out the show, audience has been told that “Winter is coming” but since nightking is no more, we can say that the “winter is finally come to an end” and it seems that the new age has finally begun in the westeros. I think the story comes to a proper end with everyone’s stories being properly told and journey completed. So this was the breakdown of final season of Game of thrones.
