Jon Abdicates the Throne and Restarts the Night’s Watch
The Theory/Prediction: Jon Snow a.k.a. Aegon Targaryen has the best claim to the Iron Throne, even though he doesn’t want it. But let’s say things shake out where he ends up in power—Dany either cedes it or gets killed—what would he do? Jon has never wanted to rule and perhaps instead of ruling, he abdicates his throne and renounces his titles, leaving the Iron Throne to Tyrion, Sansa, Arya, Bran, or someone else, then heads back North to live the rest of his life in peace, while reuniting with his Direwolf Ghost.
How it Could Play Out: Jon has never wanted to lead, so if he ends up on the Iron Throne or in a position to take it, he could give up his claim and leave King’s Landing. Jon could leave the throne to Dany (unlikely), Tyrion, Sansa, Arya, Bran, or someone else and head back to where it all started: The Night’s Watch. With no one left to man the wall—and the possibility that the White Walkers could rise again one day in the future—Jon could take a vow and renounce all claims and titles to his name.
