Sansa Stark Takes the Throne
The Theory/Prediction: Sansa Stark ends up on the Iron Throne at the end, leaving Jon, Arya, or Bran (or all three together) to keep hold of the North. As The Ringer wrote, “the Lady of Winterfell may be the last hope for restoring order to Westeros”; she’s been “shrewd” and “benevolent” in her leadership of the North and the Vale, and may be “Westeros’s only good ruler.”
How it Could Play Out: This season has had a lot of storylines converging, but one thing that’s been consistent is Sansa doesn’t like Daenerys. She’s suspicious, and didn’t hesitate to blow the whistle about Jon being a Targaryen. She told Tyrion because she supports Jon just as much as she mistrusts Dany. Let’s say Arya uses her skills as an assassin to take out Dany, but Jon doesn’t want to rule. Could Sansa take over and rule the realm, returning to King’s Landing—the place she hates the most after being held hostage there—to bring everything full circle?
