Who Deserves The Iron Throne?

Who Deserves The Iron Throne?

From a fellow "Game of Thrones" lover.


The final season of "Game of Thrones" is almost here and the Iron Throne will finally be filled. But will fans get the ending they have been waiting for? Do not read this article if you do not want any spoilers! I'm also die-hard "Game of Thrones" fan so I know how it is.

1. Jon Snow

Jon Snow

The show's golden boy is definitely a fan favorite. He has all the qualities of a hero: he's brave, morally sound and very handsome. He's the type of man you would take home to meet your parents, so why shouldn't he take the throne too? In addition to these traits, we learned of his true heritage last season. He is the perfect candidate for King but as we all know Jon Snow would be way too predictable for "Game of Thrones".

2. Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of Meereen, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons, with a name like that she is destined for the throne. Throughout seven seasons we watched her character and her power develop. Now that she's finally in Westeros, Daenerys has shown her ruthlessness as a leader (not to mention her dragons). In an ideal world, Daenerys and Jon Snow would rule together, but that would be incest right? Who do you think they are, the Lannisters?

3. Sansa Stark

Sansa Stark

Okay, I know we ALL hated her during the first few seasons but we also watched her transform from a naive and helpless girl to a powerful and respected woman. If there was one Stark I would love to see on the throne it is her. She was born in the North and spent years in King's Landing watching and learning. She learned politics through Little Finger, Tyrion Lannister and maybe a little bit too much from Cersei Lannister. Although she is not actively vying for King's Landing, we still shouldn't count her out.

4. Cersei Lannister

Cersei Lannister

Cersei Lannister is probably the most hated and most loved character on the show. She currently sits on the throne and intends to keep it through any means necessary. The only type of feeling this woman had was the love she had for her children, but now that they are gone, her merciless leadership has plagued the South. Will she be able to keep it?

5. Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion Lannister

Another fan favorite, Tyrion Lannister has proven to be morally just and extremely smart. He previously worked as the Hand of the King for Joffrey Baratheon (ew) and is currently Hand of the Queen for Daenerys. He has proven himself to be a big player in the "Game of Thrones" despite his small stature. He showed his military prowess when he defeated the great Stannis Baratheon at the Battle of Blackwater. However, Tyrion's greatest weapon is his quick wit and intellect that truly displays his ability to sit on the Iron Throne.

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs To Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a "Friends" fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite "Friends" moments. So, here are six places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a "Friends" fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in "Friends" is real and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pulitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in "The One WIth Monica's Thunder," and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

5 TV Shows To Binge Watch When You Aren't Stressing About College

My top five shows to binge watch as a college student.


Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu are a college students best friend. These are my top 5 shows you should watch while hanging out in your dorm room.

1. "The Office"


"The Office" is definitely an easy show to binge. Its dry humor and sarcasm can be hard to grasp at first, but eventually, you'll start chuckling at everything Michael says. The characters are all different, so you'll probably be able to relate to them in your own way. Not only is it a comedy, but it also adds in some romance and drama. The things that Dwight, Jim, Pam, and the others do will make you think that working at a paper company really isn't too bad. I don't want to spoil anything for you, so you'll just have to watch it on your own. (That's what she said.)

2. "Sex and the City"


"Sex and the City" is a total classic. I remember when I was younger I heard about the show, but there was no way I was going to watch it. When I got to college I realized there was a lot about the world I hadn't learned. I started watching this show and was instantly hooked. If you love Manhattan and the hustle and bustle of the city, you will fall in love with the show. Carrie Bradshaw and her three best friends show the true meaning of "girl power" as they take on life and love together in the big city.

3. "Gilmore Girls"


Another classic, "Gilmore Girls," is an amazing show to watch especially if you're leaving your mom for college. Rory and her mother Lorelai are best friends. It reminded me of my own mother and I, so I ended up watching all seven seasons in one month. It seemed to be so innocent at first, but it is more drama filled than expected. It's interesting to watch her go through high school, just like I did, and experience everything a normal teen would. And who wouldn't want to watch Melissa McCarthy every episode? Of course, I won't spoil this for anyone either, but I will always be #TeamLogan.

4. "The Flash"


I'm typically not into superhero movies or shows, but I was hooked to "The Flash." Rather than being just a basic hero who wins everything and gets the girl, Barry (The Flash) overcomes some pretty intense things throughout his life. After every season I thought the show was going to end, but they came up with so many twists. There was never a dull moment in the show, and you'll learn that not everything is as it seems. There's tragedy, romance, comedy, and a whole lot of drama. What else could you ask for in a show?

5. "Atypical"

"Atypical" is a very easy show to binge. It's honestly very fascinating and has a huge amount of drama. For Sam, life seems to be harder until he finds out that everyone's life is just as hard as his. Their family is different than most, and it taught me a lot of lessons to be a better person. You can finish one whole season in just one night with a couple of people. If you ever need a show to just watch one night with your friends, this is it.
