Fans think they know who will kill Queen Daenerys in 'Game of Thrones' finale

If we learned one thing from the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, it's this: Daenerys shouldn't sit on the Iron Throne.

Sure, she might have been the most legitimate heir prior to Jon's true heritage being discovered, but after spending seven seasons claiming to be the savior of Westeros' downtrodden and vulnerable, she went on a murder spree, killing anyone who stood in her path to taking over King's Landing - despite the city surrendering of its own accord.

This is the blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment when Varys tried to poison Daenerys: 

Now, the question on everyone's minds is this: who will sit on the Iron Throne if not her?

And as we've established by now, Daenerys is not going to give up her not-so-rightful status as Queen of the Seven Kingdoms easily, using fire to get whatever she wants, making her death as good as inevitable in the final episode.

So, understandably, fans have been speculating about who will put an end to the Mad Queen's reign.

Who's at the top of their list? Arya, of course.

Sure, she decided against killing Cersei as the Red Keep was crumbling to dust at this point and would have ended up dying in the process, but after going full flamethrower in the last episode, any support Arya needs to kill Daenerys - as was the case when she killed the Night King - will happily be provided.

Check out the preview trailer for the final episode below: 

Arya killing Daenerys would also fulfil Melissandre's prophecy that she would shut blue eyes, brown eyes, and green eyes.

She's ticked two of these off her list already, and while, until now, fans speculated that green eyes were a reference to Cersei, it could signal Arya being the one to put an end to her very short reign as Daenerys also has green eyes.

It's also worth noting that the white horse Arya rode through the ashes of King's Landing could be a Biblical reference, which says that Death will ride on a white horse.

"And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him."

I guess we'll just need to wait until Sunday to find out!
