With five seasons of Game of Thrones already in the bag, and Season 6 coming up in April, the curtain will eventually fall on the TV adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. Which leaves a pressing question for fans of the show: who will be King or Queen of Westeros when all is said and done? According to the entertainment odds, Jon Snow is the favorite at +250, followed closely by Daenerys Targaryen at +300.
Snow (played by Kit Harington) is currently listed as “deceased” after getting stabbed by mutineers at the end of Season 5. However, dead people have a way of coming back to life on Game of Thrones. Snow is one of the most prominent characters in the series; he’s a fan favorite, and the story is often told from his point of view.
Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) is another major “POV” character with a large fanbase. She belongs to the family that ruled Westeros for nearly 300 years before rebellion set in. Earlier this summer, Targaryen was the +250 favorite ahead of Snow, but theories about Snow’s imminent re-incarnation have caused the two characters to switch positions.
