Game of Thrones Hope Chest: what do you most want resolved in the season finale?


We’re not going to see the main conflicts ended this year. But there’s always the chance for a little closure elsewhere

Share this story


Game of Thrones has never been about giving readers or viewers what they most want. Its author and screenwriters prefer to build fan expectations, then overturn them for narrative impact — and sometimes for pure shock value. And yet fans maintain hope that at least a few of the characters will reach a satisfying, well-deserved ending. That’s why there’s Game of Thrones Hope Chest, a new weekly poll where we put all our hopes together in one place. We aren’t asking what you think is going to happen on Game of Thrones, we’re asking: what do you most hope to see happen?

This week, we’re headed into the season finale, with a chance that we won’t see any more of the show until 2019. So this is our last chance for a little closure on the storylines continued or opened in this season. There are plenty of unresolved plot threads at the moment, and some of them, we’re absolutely guaranteed not to see wrapped up, like the undead menace in the north, or whether Cersei’s ultimately going to sell out her theoretical allies. But there’s at least a possibility that we’ll get some reveals on other dangling plotlines.


What do you most want to see wrapped up before the season hiatus?
