After Daenerys' rampage on King's Landing last week, there were obviously going to be some big consequences and -- hoo boy -- were there.

Following the battle of King's Landing, Dany let her Unsullied know the war was not over. Not content with blowing up Cersei's house, the mother of dragons had big plans to "liberate" the world.

Obviously, a lot of people had a problem with that, and Jon decided to reciprocate some love for Dany before plunging a dagger into her.

So with Cersei and now Dany out of the picture, who would take the Iron Throne? Well, the literal answer to that question is nobody. Following Jon's ultimate betrayal of his girlfriend-cum-aunt, Drogon the last standing dragon torched the throne until it was nothing more than some clumps of burning metal.

But there was still the question of who would step into power, and in a meeting with the lords and ladies of the seven kingdoms, Tyrion nominated none other than Bran to take the top spot. Also, Sam briefly wanted to invent the notion of democracy and everyone was like: "Boo Sam -- that idea sounds crap."
