New York Comic-Con was chock full of entertainment gems over the weekend. A lot of these had to do with Marvel's Netflix lineup, as we learned about new villains and caught some footage from Iron Fist. But Game of Thrones' own Jack Gleeson was on hand to share some interesting insights into his former gig on HBO's fantasy drama. While at the con, he explained there is one theory about Game of Thrones' ending he is particularly attracted to. Here's what he had to say:

This isn't like a spoiler, because I know zero about the show and I literally know nothing about what will happen. But someone came up with this theory that they told me at a convention recently. You know, someone's going to melt down the Iron Throne because it has the Valyrian steel that will overcome the White Walkers or whatever. So, I think that's kind of a cool idea, that the monarchy is literally dissolved.

As the quote indicates, Jack Gleeson doesn't have some special insight into the world of Game of Thrones thanks to private conversations with George R.R. Martin or anything. In fact, since his character Joffrey was killed off of the series during Season 4, he hasn't really kept up with the fantasy drama. He even mentioned during the New York Comic-Con panel that he really only paid attention to his scripts during the time he was on the show and hasn't really watched Game of Thrones since he stopped filming, either. Said Gleeson:

Maybe I should get into it. You know I hear it's really great.

So, Joffrey may not be a Game of Thrones expert, but that doesn't mean this theory is a completely foolish one, either. George R.R. Martin has already worked with showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff, and has reportedly explained the proposed ending for the rest of the series. In addition, he's given us hints about the ending, explaining that it will be "bittersweet." That doesn't mean the Iron Throne will fall and cede way to something new, but it doesn't mean that won't be a portion of the ending, either.

Other actors on Game of Thrones have also come up with not-totally-outrageous theories. Finn Jones has talked about wanting to see a "big battle" between "ice and fire" that also leads to the Iron Throne being demolished, so there's a common thread between these two theories. And Martin himself has talked about wanting "hope" to come out of the ending of his series. Obviously, we don't know exactly how it will happen yet, but we are reaching the end of the drama, so we don't have too much longer to wait for a resolution.

HBO recently announced that Game of Thrones will be ending after Season 8. Season 7 is expected to air sometime in 2017, albeit with what should be fewer episodes than normal. To find out what is coming to Game of Thrones, check out our what we know guide.
