Jaime arrives at King’s Landing. Cersei is adamant that she can defeat the army by blowing up the city. Jaime argues with her, when the White Walkers arrive outside the city gates, preparing to take the city.
She gives the order to burn down the city when the White Walkers attack, Jaime strangles her to death, he orders the mass evacuation of the city using the royal fleet, claiming himself the new king only to order people to help evacuation rather than fleeing themselves.
Dany arrives at the city, and Jaime explains what happened. It’s obvious that it’s too late to save the city but Dany disagrees. Bran begins to warg into Rhaegar, takes flight, and breathes fire down onto the city, causing it to explode, killing a significant number of the army of the dead, as well as Drogon to prevent a million-man army for the Night’s King. Rhaegar flies away, Jaime and Dany flees back to Riverrun on horseback. The final shot of the episode is Bran looking bored to himself, not caring about what he’s done.

Bran is killed. Main characters escape with most of their armies and flees west. Jon stays with Dany throughout the seige. She gives birth to a baby girl, but is far too weak to move and is dying as the white walkers surround and attack the castle. Jon agrees to kill themselves, and set themselves on fire to prevent them from being turned. Jon stabs Dany when the Night’s King enters the room. Longclaw sets itself alight, becoming lightbringer. The Night King flees when seeing this, allowing Jon and his daughter time to escape on Rhaegar, who flies in just in time.
Rhaegar lands at the isle of many faces. Jon dismounts and hears Bran in the Weirwoods. He explains that the White Walkers were the ones who built the Wall to keep the humans out. Azor Ahai was actually a woman with Targaryan blood, who had a child with Bran the Builder, merging ice and fire into one bloodline. The white walkers saw fire merging into the first men’s blood, creating their worst nightmare and hence went to war, only when that failed they built the wall. It happened again under Jon, and believing that they were at risk of extinction again, marched south. Hence why the Night’s King was so scared of Lightbringer and Jon’s daughter.
Bran tells Jon that they won’t stop at least until he and his daughter dies, separating the blood of fire from the first men. He can’t bring himself to kill his daughter and decides to try an kill the Night’s King himself.
The living prepare for the battle of Castlery Rock, after retreating from Riverrun. The battle begins with the army of the dead winning. Jon rides in on Rhaegar and hands his daughter over to Tyrion. He flies back onto Rhaegar and him and the Night’s King have an arial flight. Viserion kills Rhaegar and he falls to his death. Jon jumps onto Viserion’s back, fight’s the Night’s King and kills him. Viserion dies again, and Jon falls to his death.
The army of the dead drops into bones and flesh. Jaime and Tyrion look at the falling dragon and realize that Jon was successful.

The last shot of the series is a Weirwood tree on the isle of many faces, with icicles beginning to melt. The tree has the face of Bran.
