Winter is finally here. The battle between the living and the dead is among us. Everything that will happen will be for the throne.

“Game of Thrones,” the hit HBO series, brings together everything great about medieval times, from great battle scenes to fire-breathing dragons.

In the last season (Season 7) of “Game of Thrones,” Jon Snow, Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, teamed up with Daenerys Targaryen, mother of dragons, to fight the Night King, leader of the army of the dead. Both Daenerys and Jon thought they had come to a truce with the Queen of Westeros, Cersei Lannister. However, Cersei had different plans and has betrayed Jon and Daenerys without their knowledge.

In addition, the Stark siblings Sansa, Bran, and Arya reunited for the first time since Season 1 and are hoping to help Jon defend the north. Tyrion Lannister is trying to help Daenerys in becoming the queen of Westeros by counseling her. And his brother, Jaime Lannister, has left King’s Landing in fear of their powerful and mad queen, his sister Cersei, and has joined Jon and Daenerys in the upcoming war. And Theon Greyjoy looks for redemption by helping fight for the Stark family.

In the upcoming series finale, so much can happen. One thing directors David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have showed viewers over the years is that any character can die. The deaths of Ned, Catelyn, and Robb Stark were all very shocking and saddening to viewers worldwide. With so much at stake this season, there will be many deaths that can affect the outcome of the show. Senior Victoria Corpuz gave her thoughts about who would die and who would be king or queen of Westeros.

“I feel like Jon is going to sacrifice himself, or the Night King will kill him,” said Corpuz. “I think Arya will be queen by the end though.”

The “Game of Thrones” final season began on April 14 on HBO. It is six episodes long.
