With the news about a Game of Thrones spin-off series, fans are excited to see what more stories can be explored in the vast world of the hit HBO show. The final season was regarded as a letdown, but still, loyal fans want redemption in the form of another sequel.
While there is an upcoming prequel, House of the Dragon, there were still many characters from the original series who deserve their own stories. Fans from Reddit have postulated their own Game of Thrones spin-off plots that the creators can take inspiration from:
The Story Of Tormund And Brienne
Tormund and Brienne’s relationship brought joy and entertainment to fans. He was absolutely smitten by the knight’s charm, and although they had scenes working together, they eventually parted ways. Fans would indeed wish for a second chance of meeting, and who knows what might come out of it?
For Reddit fan habituallinestepper1, they propose this story: “The Long Night is over, and humanity has withered away until just two remain: Brienne of Tarth and Tormund Giantkiller. Find out what happens when he’s literally the last man on earth left.”
The Dragon Queen Will Return
Avid followers of Daenerys Targaryen are disappointed with the queen’s fate. The death of her dragons and her untimely demise in the final season of Game of Thrones was anticlimactic; they did not give her the culmination of all her efforts to take the Iron Throne.
Redditor choff22 proposes that “Dany gets resurrected by the Red Priestess and goes on a little hunting trip.” It might mean that Daenerys will hunt down everyone who wronged her, including Jon Snow.
The Ordinary Folks Of Westeros
The slums of Westeros have often been featured in the first few seasons of Game of Thrones. Poverty and famine are rampant in this area, and they do not receive any help from the people in the high seats.
According to bluehaven101 of Reddit, “I want to explore the mundane life in Westeros in a comedy form. Follow a person from the bottom of the food chain on a quest to get a promotion in a bakery in flea bottom in King’s Landing.”
The Brave Knights Of The Kingdoms
Many skilled fighters have appeared in Game of Thrones, but they are often overshadowed by the ensemble cast. It would be great to see these warriors become the star of the show.
-Blood_Raven- from Reddit thinks, “I’d personally love to see something similar to the Witcher where you have this one guy (probably a knight in this case) who is a massively skilled fighter and gets involved in loads of politics throughout the kingdoms with multiple different plot threads all with him in the forefront.”
The Rise Of The Free Cities
Many free cities were not explored despite Daenerys traveling to Essos. These places can be used as a setting for a new political story.
For Redditor InternetBoredom, “Imagine a series focusing on the intrigues between the Free Cities: Braavos, Lorath, Myr, Lys, Norvos, Pentos, Qohor, Tyrosh, and Volantis, all jockeying for dominance over Essosi trade, each with their own internal political fights between their major houses.”
