Alas, Game of Thrones is coming to a close after eight seasons of unprecedented entertainment that captivated millions of TV watchers the world over.
But we still have one more week of Game of Thrones betting odds to consider and the bet we've all been keeping an eye on for 8+ years is finally going to be decided:
Who will sit on the Iron Throne when the show's final scene cuts?
With one episode left, it's time to take a final look at the 'Who Will Rule Westeros?' betting market. (Potential spoilers ahead!)
With the Night King and Cersei defeated as well as the Great War ended, the market for who will rule Westeros at show's end is down to a few key characters.
|Jon Snow/Aegon Targeryen||8/1|
Episode 3 of Game of Thrones featured the longest cinematic battle in history but, surprisingly, very few main characters died during the Great War which means the market on who would rule was still extremely competitive.
That was until Episode 5 when key characters finally met their end.
Cersei, Varys and even The Mountain were garnering odds up until this week but with all of them dying in Episode 5, the market for who will rule is down to a few options.
Jon and Daenerys have realistic paths to the throne should they survive till the end but it's tough to imagine Martin ends his epic series with such an expected outcome: Jon and/or Daenerys win out and rule Westeros.
Backing Jon to sit on the Iron Throne at 8/1 or Daenerys at 15/1 won't be ridiculed by any means but they are safer bets on a show that loves a good plot twist.
If you're looking value outside the obvious choices, back Tyrion 7/1 to sit on the Iron Throne at the end of Season 8.
There is a fan theory Tywin Lannisters' loath for his son Tyrion does not come from the death of his wife Joanna Lannister during Tyrion's birth but instead because Tyrion is actually a product of an affair between King Aerys Targaryen II and Joanna.
We know the Mad King fancied his Hand's wife so an affair certainly isn't off the table considering the King always gets what he wants. And Tywin's hate for Tyrion seems deeper than an accidental death during birth.
The most convincing evidence Tyrion is a Targaryen came in Season 6, Episode 2 when he went to visit the dragons and they didn't immediately unleash a fiery hell on him.
If Season 8 reveals Tyrion is actually the eldest living son of Aerys Targaryen II, Tyrion is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne over both Jon and Dany.
