Who knows how Game of Thrones will end (hopefully with another appearance from Ed Sheeran—just kidding!), but obviously the question on everyone's mind is who will take the Iron Throne.

In the speech—which is making the rounds on Reddit—Robert Baratheon lays out exactly how the Targaryens and Dothraki will own the throne—and considering he sounds on the money about everything except Daenerys being the Targaryen in question, this could be an epic case of foreshadowing.

"Let's say Viserys Targaryen lands with 40,000 Dothraki screamers at his back. We hole up in our castles," Robert says. "A wise move. Only a fool would meet the Dothraki in an open field. They leave us in our castles. They go from town to town, looting and burning, killing every man who can't hide behind a stone wall, stealing all our crops and livestock, enslaving all our women and children. How long do the people of the Seven Kingdoms stand behind their absentee king, their cowardly king hiding behind high walls? When do the people decide that Viserys Targaryen is the rightful monarch after all?"

While it's hard to imagine Daenerys allowing the Dothraki to loot and burn their way through Westeros, Robert has a point. Is this how Dany will take the throne? Only time (and more fan theories) will tell, friends.
