If I had to choose how Game of Thrones ends, I would get the white walkers to destroy everything while the characters were too busy bickering over control of one another's territories. (But hey, I'm a little cynical.) But since none of us is George R.R. Martin, we're only left to speculate—even the people playing his characters on HBO.
Entertainment Weekly asked six of the show's stars how they wanted the story to end while they were on the set. The answers were all over the place.
Sophie Turner said Sansa would probably want herself on the throne with Littlefinger as the hand to the queen, and Maisie Williams wants her character, Arya, to "rise to the top." Natalie Dormer wants the eventual daughter of Margaery Tyrell and Tommen Baratheon to be queen, and Lena Headey just wants Cersei to hang out with the Red Priestess and reanimate all her dead children. Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth, wants every single character to be killed off on the way up the throne, incinerated by dragons, and Westeros has a chance to rebuild.
But the best suggestion came from Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen:
"I get to Westeros, riding on the back of my dragon, and we hang a right past Hollywood, and we pick up a few beautiful men to jump on the dragon with me, and then we pick up the throne, and we take that throne and the beautiful men and we take it to the Caribbean. We plant that throne in the Caribbean and we just chill out."
Do you hear that, HBO executives? After all she's been through, Dany deserves a tropical vacation.
