Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell) is no longer a part of the show, but he too is keen on finding out what happens in “Game of Thrones” season 8. The actor is not privy to the spoilers of the plot, but he has a theory on the ending, which is in line with the general tone of the show.

In an interview with People, Jones was asked about his theory on the ending.  Jessica Henwick (Nymeria Sand) knows the actor’s theory, which she described as being very long and detailed. Jones tried to summarise his thoughts on what the post war Westeros will look like, and what the power structure will be like.

According to Jones, there won’t be a throne any more. Forr the most part, the TV series has been about various Houses and characters trying to get the Iron Throne, so a future where there isn’t a throne will be shocking indeed.

With no centralised power of the Iron Throne, Jones thinks that the regional kingdoms will get their independence. Essentially the things will go back to the way they were before the conquest of Aegon and his dragons.

Jones, however, later added that a democratic setup where the seven kingdoms get their freedom is a little too “utopian” for the show that has featured so many deaths and shocking betrayals. So, the actor suggests, the show will end with everyone’s death. It isn’t clear if he meant all the major characters will die, leaving the kingdom for the younger generation, or if the Night King will win by killing everyone, making the fights for the Iron Throne in the past seem petty and meaningless.

“Game of Thrones” season 8 is set to premiere sometime in early 2019. The producers are yet to announce an exact release date.
