Daenerys Targaryen

While Daenerys and Jon Snow pushed their relationship in a more intimate direction at the end of season 7, we don't expect the romance to last. For one, Jon will very soon be told by Bran that he is Aegon Targaryen. This gives him not only a stronger claim to the Iron Throne, but also makes him Daeny's nephew. We imagine both may pump the brakes on the good times shared pretty quickly.

Whereas Jon has never wanted anything to do with the throne, Daenerys has had her eye firmly on the prize from the beginning. The lessons in leadership she's picked up, from Qarth to Slaver's Bay, make her not only formidable Queen, but also a worldly one.

It's our prediction that Daenerys will sit alone on the Iron Throne, ruling over the Seven Kingdoms with the strength needed to help Westeros recover from what's coming. The price for making it to the end, however, will leave her scarred and heartbroken (just like the rest of us).
