Our weekly 'Game of Thrones' prediction By Meghan Giannotta email@example.com Updated May 20, 2019 9:05 AM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email Chaos is a ladder, and your “Game of Thrones” favorites ended up at the top of their own. Throughout the eighth and final season of the HBO epic, we tracked the progress of the key players in the Last War to answer the burning endgame question: Who won the Iron Throne? Technically, there was no Iron Throne left to claim. Below, our rankings post each week's episode.

Week 2 Photo Credit: Graphic by Anthony Carrozzo; Cartoons by Marish via depositphoto Our ranking of who's on track for the Iron Throne, post season 8, episode 2. Jon Snow moves one step closer, as does the Night King. Tyrion slides down and Gendry makes his way into the ranking alongside Arya. Oh, and a mysterious "no one" creeps up on the throne. Week 3 Photo Credit: Graphic by Anthony Carrozzo; Cartoons by Marish via depositphoto Following the epic Winterfell battle, a certain someone (ahem, the Night King) has dropped off our ladder thanks to Arya Stark. Week 4 Photo Credit: Graphic by Anthony Carrozzo; Some cartoons by Marish via depositphoto Arya has dropped down on our ranking, but not for lack of ability. Week 5 Photo Credit: Graphic / Anthony Carrozzo; Some cartoons by Marish via depositphoto There's a new queen in town, for now.

In the "Game of Thrones" finale, Bran ends up the king of the six kingdoms while Sansa rules over Winterfell. Jon seemingly becomes the new King Beyond the Wall and Arya leaves Westeros, leading her own journey to whatever comes next.

Thanks to a heartbroken Drogon, the Iron Throne melted before Jon Snow's eyes, symbolically destroying the "wheel" Daenerys longed to break. Westeros didn't exactly end up under one rule, either. Before showing her support for the new King Bran, Sansa declared Winterfell independent and became Queen of the North. Bran Stark Photo Credit: HBO/Macall B. Polay All hail Bran the Broken, First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Six Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm. The Great Council chose Bran Stark, the Three Eyed Raven, as the leader of the now-six kingdoms of Westeros in the final episode of "Game of Thrones." It's determined the Great Council -- comprised of Edmure Tully, Gendry Baratheon, Samwell Tarly, Arya Stark, Bran Stark, Yohn Royce, Sansa Stark, Ser Brienne of Tarth, Ser Davos Seaworth, Robin Arryn and Yara Greyjoy -- will be in charge of selecting the future Westerosi leaders from Bran on, eliminating the line of succession.

In her final scene, a crown is placed on her head as the people of Winterfell cheer. A Stark must always remain in Winterfell, after all. Jon Snow Photo Credit: HBO / Helen Sloan After being banished to the Night's Watch by King Bran for killing Queen Daenerys, Jon Snow heads north of the wall with what's left of the Wildlings. It's implied he becomes a leader of his own sort, the King Beyond the Wall.

Instead, Arya decided to leave the kingdoms behind after a successful defeat of the Night King. She sails away from Westeros, leading her own path.
