Game of Thrones ended last year with what George RR Martin has said contained the main beats of his planned conclusion to A Song of Ice and Fire. However, the author has also teased that that was just an ending but not “the ending”, leaving fans speculating that A Dream of Spring will be more different to Game of Thrones than previously expected. Now one fan has theorised two possible alternative endings, especially after some disappointment to Bran ending up an elected king.
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.”

They continued: “Jon has a legitimate son and the Targaryens are back on the throne (could be secret if Jon reveals his true family) [something] that Daenerys didn’t get to see but…her daughter will.
“[They] could [even] discover dragon eggs or have two of the dragons survive, one for Jon and the other for his daughter when she is old enough.”
The theorist also proposed another theory where Dany is exiled.
They wrote: “Daenerys arrives in Westeros and is able to defeat her enemies and accidentally sets off the wildfire below Kings Landing.”
They theorised: “This forces her into an arrangement with fAegon or Jon in order to keep her there without a revolt.
“When the Others arrive she assists in the battle but at the end of it all, she is broken, either mentally or physically from her life’s ordeals.
“Whether this includes most/all of the dragons dying is up in the air.
“She is exiled by King fAegon/Jon to Braavos to live out her days.”

They added: “Daenerys in the books says that she was most happiest when she was in Braavos.
“It would be bitter sweet because she finally returned home and helped restore her family to the throne.
“But in return she was broken, but in the end sailed back across the sea (ala Frodo) to go back to where she remembers being happiest.
“It could even end with fAegon or Jon discovering a clutch of dragon eggs about to hatch on Dragonstone.”
Whatever the case, A Dream of Spring’s ending is probably years away.
After all, it’s been almost a decade since the last book in A Song of Ice and Fire was released.
Fans are now eagerly awaiting a release date for The Winds of Winter.
However, it’s possible it may not hit bookshelves until 2021.
