When the final season of Game of Thrones aired, the HBO show became the worst-reviewed of the entire series. Meanwhile, the ending split fans, with thousands signing a petition for season 8 to be remade. Now Daenerys star Emilia Clarke has spoken out on how her character’s demise irritated her, but will more pressure see George RR Martin change A Song of Ice and Fire’s ending?
Speaking with The Times, the 33-year-old said of Daenerys: “Yeah, I felt for her.
“I really felt for her. And yeah, was I annoyed that Jon Snow didn’t have to deal with something?
“He got away with murder – literally.”
Of course, in the end, Jon Snow, actually her nephew Aegon Targaryen and rightful heir to the Iron Throne, ended up being exiled to the Wall.

Meanwhile, Bran became the newly elected King of Westeros.
Of course, A Song of Ice and Fire author George RR Martin has revealed how, although the show’s narrative overtook his books, Game of Thrones season 8 had the main plot points of what he plans to write in final book A Dream of Spring.
Nevertheless, with fans knowing how it all ends, the 71-year-old is at somewhat of a disadvantage in terms of surprises and stakes.
But with there being disappointment of how the show ended for some, including for star Clarke, Martin now has the opportunity to write his own ending if he is bold enough.
In fact, in a recent interview, he teased he is writing a different ending of sorts in The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.
Speaking Welt, Martin was asked if having seen Game of Thrones finish his story before he could in the books put him under pressure.
The author said: “People know an end – not the end.
“The makers of the TV series overtook me, which I didn’t expect.”

He added: “These are the things I concentrate on. After that, we will see.”
“Nevertheless I continue what I’ve been doing for years: I still try to finish first the next book Winds Of Winter and then the follow-up novel A Dream Of Spring.”
Certainly, changing something like Dany’s death or Bran ending up as king would be quite a radical move.
In fact, there’s a very popular theory of how A Song of Ice and Fire will end that was recently published on Reddit.
Reddit user HadesPersephone90 reckons we could see Jon on the Iron Throne with dead Dany’s baby as his heir.
They wrote: “Daenerys comes home and she becomes pregnant with the child of either fAegon [fake Aegon] or Jon and after all is said and done she dies in childbirth but gives birth to a baby girl.
“Jon is duty-bound to care for the child, giving a callback to Lyana and Ned.
“And if Jon is on the Iron Throne then again we have this bittersweet ending where Daenerys was able to have a child.”
