Everything The Season 6 Finale Of Game Of Thrones Needs To Address

We're just hours away from finding out how season 6 of Game Of Thrones ends. And while we're excited, we're also scared the show may leave us with a lot of unanswered questions.

While we can rest assured that these questions will likely not be as divisive as last season's Jon Snow cliffhanger, it's got us thinking that there are some things we really, really would like to know before we head into the seventh, penultimate season.

Since photos from the GOT finale can only give away so much, we're making a wishlist of the questions we'd like to see answered in this epic finale. The theories that have been spreading like wildfire across the internet are the ones that we'd finally like to see put to bed.

One can only hope this super-sized episode — the show's longest, ever, clocking in at 69 minutes — gave the show's creators enough time to get to them all.

For our sake and theirs.

Will Dany & Tyrion Stay A Team?

These two have different ruling styles, but they seem to have a pretty symbiotic relationship. It's uncertain, though, whether this special relationship will continue to go on as the khaleesi sails off to Westeros in hopes of taking back the Iron Throne for her family — maybe at the behest of Tyrion's.

The worried looks on the duo's faces in this photo may be the clue that this is goodbye for these two. And perhaps the last time we see our khaleesi as a hero?

Theories are already looming that our beloved Dany is actually the villain of Game Of Thrones. Could Tyrion leaving push her over the edge? She sure does enjoy mass murder.

Will Sansa Have To Marry Littlefinger?

On the penultimate episode, Sansa got to save the day by calling on Lord Petyr Baelish and the Knights of the Vale, who helped she and her brother Jon Snow retake their home of Winterfell.

But making a deal with Littlefinger certainly has its consequences. Since he's always had a (creepy) thing for Sansa, it's possible his motive for helping was so he could get her hand in marriage.

The season's promo also hints a marriage is in the cards with Sansa asking, "What do you want?" only to have Littlefinger say, "I thought you knew what I wanted."

Ugh, yeah, we know.

Is Sansa Pregnant With Ramsay Bolton's Baby?

This leads us to the next Sansa question that we need to have answered. Throughout this season, it's been rumored that Sansa is pregnant, hence all the new dresses she's been wearing.

While we would prefer this not to be true, there has been some clues that support the worst: Sansa is, in fact, pregnant with her rapist's baby.

Last week, before Sansa watches Ramsay get devoured by hounds, he says, "You can't kill me. I'm part of you now." If we take that literally, Ramsay could be revealing that he lives on through this child.

But if Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth, is to be trusted, he believes Ramsay's final words should not be taken too seriously.

“Unless he’s got one of those Game of Thrones pregnancy sticks, he’s not gonna know,” Cunningham told the Huffington Post. "I think, I would imagine, it’s open to whatever you want it to be, but I think he’s saying he’s put himself into her head."

While we hope he's right, we want a definitive answer and we want it in this super-sized episode — especially since expectant mothers on GOT rarely get a happy ending.

Will Davos Seaworth Take Revenge On Melisandre?

After finding one of Shireen's toys in some ashes, Davos Seaworth is likely looking for answers, which will lead him back to Melisandre.

As we would all like to forget, the Red Witch had Shireen burned at the stake in hopes of bringing good luck to Stannis. It didn't — and it seems like more bad luck may be coming Melisandre's way once Davos figures out what happened.

Will Melisandre live to see season 7? That's what we'd like to know.

Will Arya Kill Walder Frey?

Arya has made her list and if she's checking it twice, she'll see Walder Frey's name right at the top. After all, he was the one who helped orchestrate the Red Wedding, which left her brother, Robb, his wife, and her mother, Catelyn, dead.

There is a theory that Arya is at Frey's wedding in disguise, possibly as one of Frey's sons. Clearly, you can take the girl out of the House of Black and White, but you can't take the skills of the Faceless Men out of the girl.

It's believed that Arya will show up to the celebration only to kill Frey at his wedding. Yes, this would be the Red Wedding, part deux.

Giving legs to this theory is the fact that everyone who played a role in the Red Wedding has been killed by their son: Roose Bolton, Tywin Lannister, now, possibly Walder Frey, since someone wearing the face of your son still counts.

Boy, would we like to see Arya go all Kill Bill in the finale.

Will We Get A Cleganebowl?

We got our Battle of the Bastards, now we can't help but wonder if season 6 end will end with a Cleganebowl.

This theory was more plausible when Cersei was planning to have a trial by combat as her defense against the High Sparrow and the Seven. She was ready to throw the new zombie Mountain into battle.

Who would the Mountain go up against, you ask? Well, his own brother, the Hound. Clegane v. Clegane, may the best one win.

After Tommen said there would be no fights to death, though, only real trials, some believed this theory was put to bed.

But being that the Hound is becoming one with his spiritual side and has a penchant for using axes to maim people, we don't want to count out this theory completely.

At least, not yet.

Did Bran Build The Wall?

Bran is now the Three-Eyed Raven, but could he also be the mythic Bran the Builder, the original builder of the wall?

We've already seen that Bran has the power to jump in and out of past events, but is it possible he's been doing it for thousands of years?

Some believe that Bran is the architect of everything in the Seven Kingdoms and may be the one who brings it all down.

Case in point: As we saw earlier this season, with one touch from the Night's King, the system broke down, the White Walkers were allowed into the cave he was staying in, and all chaos broke loose.

If Bran ends up at the Wall, which uses the same magic as the cave, the Night's King and his army should technically be able to follow Bran in and destroy it, leaving everyone in the Seven Kingdoms vulnerable.

This would mean Bran is the original builder of the Wall and could potentially be its destroyer, too.

Of course, we may be getting ahead of ourselves here. Or, are we? Game Of Thrones creators, could you help us out a little here?

Who Are Jon Snow's Real Parents?

We're six seasons in and we still don't know who Jon Snow's parents are. Sure, we're supposed to believe he's the bastard son of Ned Stark, but no GOT fan has ever believed this.

This is because of the R + L = J theory, which likely means Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.

It's the biggest question of the series, while also being the one question that everyone thinks they already know the answer to.

The season finale needs to finally confirm (or deny) this answer so we can all go on with our lives — and get ready for what this realization means for season 7.
