SPOILERS ABOUND! BEWARE!
So, if I were to make a prediction:
Daenerys gets Sansa’s acquiescence to lead what is left of the Northern armies and the Unsullied south, allying with the Tully forces at Riverrun (Jaime and Sansa convince Edmure Tully that it is in his best interest) to confront the Golden Company and Lannister army.
Close enough, although we didn't get to see the Tully inclusion in the last couple episodes. Northerners just *poof* kind of appeared.
A battle of some sort results, with the still recovering dragons making up for the lack of numbers to trigger a stalemate. One dragon is lost, which causes Daenerys to fly into a rage, literally, riding the last dragon (probably Drogon) in a futile and fatal attempt to win the day.
Close enough. One dragon was lost en route to the fight. Daenerys went batshit on the last dragon, but the attempt was not a futile one.
In the meantime, Jaime, Bronn, and the Hound slip into King’s Landing to assassinate Cersei (I seem to recall that a witch told teenage Cersei that she would die at the hands of a loved one). However, the plan does not pan out (of course), and Arya deals one or more of the death blows, maybe while wearing Walder Frey’s face.
Close. In hindsight, Cersei died in the arms of a loved one. Arya inexplicably drew down her bloodlust per the exhortations of the Hound.
Sansa assumes the Iron Throne and brings peace at last to the people Westeros, who in turn love their red-headed queen who decides never to marry but be “wedded” to her people.
The Three-Eyed Raven tells Lord Commander Targaryen and Maester Tarly that he has discovered the Night Queen of ancient legend, living in the far north with her White Walker children (donated by Craster and his daughter wives) ….
You missed this last part.
I am going to go out on a limb and leave Jon/Aegon out of the contest for the throne. He was raised by Ned Stark to value personal oaths and undying loyalty to them. I still think that he takes his oath as a member of the Knight’s Watch seriously - including foreswearing any title. He will look back on the example of Maester Aemon Targaryen, who kept his oath rather than exercise his own claim to the Iron Throne. Indeed, Maester Aemon may have secretly known who Jon/Aegon really was and revealed his own story as an example to be followed. Besides, Jon/Aegon never wanted to be King of the North, much less King of Westeros.
You nailed this as far as I'm concerned. The only prediction I saw that 'tied up' YKNJS with the Knight's Watch at the end. Good call what.
Overall, you gave me more credit than I deserved. I, along with almost every other viewer it seems, missed Daenerys' descent into "I have to purify King's Landing with fire in order to save it for future generations" madness. It's almost as if she began channeling Melisandre's disembodied spirit. Of course, once she's done it to King's Landing, she wants to purify every city in the world; now we're in Charlie Manson territory. I wonder how many scenes were left on the cutting room floor that could have helped us get there in the story.
At least Sansa got to be Mary, Queen of Scots.
