THE battle for the Iron Throne descended into a complete massacre of innocent people as Daenerys Targaryen became the mad queen in the most explosive episode of Game of Thrones yet.
But what happens now that she’s taken down the city and has claimed victory against her rivals? Is there even an Iron Throne to sit on at this point? Here’s everything we know about the final episode.
What happens in the Game of Thrones season 8, episode 6 trailer?
The wordless preview for the last ever episode of Game of Thrones features 20 seconds of tense music being played over a flash of scenes.
It starts with Jon Snow walking through the rubble, while Tryion Lannister also does the same in a different part of the city.
Arya Stark watches on intensely as Dany’s armies shout and cheer while standing in formation.
Somehow the Dragon Queen has a very large fleet again despite the fact her numbers seemed pretty depleted over the last two episodes.
We then see the back of Dany as she walks out towards her troops, while the burned ruins of King’s Landing are seen in the background.
The final episode is sure to be an emotive one as the likes of Jon, Arya and Tyrion are forced to figure out how to deal with the problem of the Mad Queen.
There’s no sign of Sansa Stark, her brother Bran or the North in the trailer but it’s safe to assume she will feature in the drama as well.

Is everyone going to die in Game of Thrones season 8?
With the final ever episode of Game of Thrones around the corner, fans are starting to freak out over the possibility that only a few characters we’ve obsessed over will make it out alive.
One of the most famous phrases in the show is the high Valyrian saying Valar Morghuli.
As many of you know, that means, “All men must die”, and it is the customary saying in Essos.
Actor Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos Seaworth, all but admitted the famous phrase could be the key to the show’s ending during an appearance on The Late Late Show.
“We’re all going to die. Don’t forget ‘Valar Morghulis,’ which is one of the phrases on the show which means ‘all men must die’,” he said ominously.
The phrase also has a traditional reply that translates to “all men must serve.”
Now Dany’s gone full-on “Mad Queen” maybe she will just ensure everyone who is against her now is destroyed and she can rule over the land of ashes.

Were there multiple endings filmed for season 8 of Game of Thrones?
Yes, Game of Thrones bosses filmed multiple endings for the cult fantasy drama’s big series finale to prevent key plot details leaking online.
The secrecy surrounding the series’ ending was taken to a whole new level.
Producers have even kept cast members in the dark about which characters live or die.
Talking to Vulture, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, revealed that they also shot fake scenes.
She said: “We shoot fake scenes. We got into costume in Croatia because we know the paparazzi lurk around there, so we would spend like half a day doing nothing.”
Kit Harington admitted that he cried when he read the final script, and also revealed that there was a secret episode of the show that will never air.
He revealed: “They say, if I ever p**s them off too much, they’ll release it on YouTube.
“Every now and then, they send me a screengrab, just as a threat.”
Though the latest leak has been coming true so it didn’t work out like they hoped.

What happened in The Bells?
Season 8 episode 5 The Bells saw The Dragon Queen (Emilia Clarke) burn King’s Landing to the ground – killing thousands of innocent men, women and children.
Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) could only look on in horror as the Breaker of Chains turned Mad Queen.
Daenerys had always insisted that she is nothing like her father and had worked tirelessly for the good of the people – freeing slaves and winning hundreds of loyal followers along her way.
But during series 8 episode 5, Daenerys lost her second dragon and witnessed the execution of her beloved advisor Missandei.
The double heartache caused something to snap in the Dragon Queen.
While sacking the city, Tyrion pleaded with the Queen to stop her attack if she hears bells that signal the city’s surrender.
But Daenerys ignored the bells and razed the city to the ground – murdering thousands of innocent men, women and children.
