Premiere Of HBO's "Game Of Thrones" Season 6 - ArrivalsThe battle for the Iron Throne is on pause while we wait for "Game of Thrones" Season 7, but that doesn't mean speculation is on hold, too.

Everyone, from fans to the show's cast, has ideas about what's coming next. Although his character Loras Tyrell was killed off, now-former star Finn Jones has a particularly interesting theory on the fate of the Iron Throne. During a recent "Game of Thrones" exhibition event in Chicago, he shared his idea while trying out the glorified chair.

Seated atop the symbol of Westerosi power, he told A.V. Club's Caitlin Penzey-Moog that he hopes it will ultimately cease to exist.

"What I'd like to see happen is, in the great battle between ice and fire, I think there'll be a kind of catastrophic war which will destroy everything," he said. "The throne will be dissolved in the process, both physically and ideologically."

It's an intriguing idea, if ironic. We've watched these people battle for the position for six seasons and counting, after all. Imagine if it all comes to naught.

We'll prepare ourselves for the possibility, but in the meantime, we've got two more seasons to enjoy, no matter who is or isn't sitting on the throne.
