For eight seasons, we’ve been wondering who’s going to end up on Game of Thrones’ Iron Throne, assuming the seat itself would still be around. Sunday night’s series finale had a little surprise: It melted! After Jon Snow stabbed Daenerys Targaryen, Drogon — the last remaining dragon — threw a tantrum and melted the throne that led his mother to her demise. (A fitting end: “The breath of the greatest dragon forged the Iron Throne. The swords of the vanquished, a thousand of them, melted together like so many candles,” said Viserys Targaryen of the fancy chair in season one.) Here is the Iron Throne’s death. RIP:
The new king, Bran the Broken, already has a better chair, anyway, because his chair is pushed by Ser Podrick!
