Speculation is all over the board how the epic HBO series will wrap up on Sunday. And there are plenty of endgame wagers as well. Will Daenerys die? Will Jon? Will anyone end with their butt in the iron seat? 
<p>Right now there are parents of young girls having second thoughts at having named their daughters Khaleesi.</p><p>According to The Guardian, 560 girls in the United States last year were named for the Queen of Dragons on HBO’s “Game Of Thrones.” And plenty more, about 3,500, if you consider varied spellings or just typos.</p><p>After her fall from beloved heroine to mad queen, moms and dads may be regretting their choice. "Yeah, we named our daughter after the woman who had her dragon scorch King’s Landing and kill possibly thousands of people." I guess time will tell if these kids grow up to be class president.</p><p>It’s hard to see how Daenerys can redeem herself in the sure-to-be-ratings-busting final episode of the epic series on Sunday. (A record 12.48 million viewers watched the penultimate episode.) All of her counselors of reason are gone, her lover has all but abandoned her, and she is armed with a dragon. Many say her end will be tragic.</p><p>With Cersei dying with Jaime under a pile of rubble, all eyes turn to Dany and Jon and the last big battle in this deadly game of musical chair – singular.</p><p>There’s all kinds of speculation and predictions on the internet but only a very small and tight-lipped group of people know if the web has actually captured the proper ending.</p><p>Reddit is the best source of predictions, speculation and the “GOT” Prediction Pool where you can submit your finale choice in hopes of winning almost $10,000.</p><p>Of course, they also have a very active list called “My theories have all gone to shit” Support Group.</p><p>Among the predictions:</p><ul> <li>No fairy tale ending will occur – the finale will find no king or queen sitting on the throne</li> <li>Arya will kill Daenerys, possibly wearing the face of an ally</li> <li>Sana will rule an independent North</li> <li>Jon will claim his rightful seat after killing his aunt</li> <li>Dany will try and kill Jon</li> <li>Tyrion will commit treason bringing the end to Dany</li> <li>The last dragon will die</li></ul><p>Celebrity “GOT” fans are making their picks as well.
