Out of these, Jon, but I think the likeliest is no one (and I don't mean Arya- I mean the Iron Throne is destroyed).

I think so too... but someone will still end up ruling.

No one will, and it's not clear to me that Westeros will have a single ruler.

But a show of the theme is how they're stronger united.

It even goes back to that Robert-Cersei conversation in Season 1. Robert asks Cersei if Five Armies or One Army is stronger. Cersei says Five. Robert shows his 5 fingers, says "five armies," then makes a fist and says "one army." Jon is all about uniting people against the true threat, and being willing to bend the knee.

For me, the show is more about how destructive the power struggle is.  The most fitting end for the story, IMHO, is that Westeros is placed under some kind of rule by committee, rather than a single monarch.

I can see Tyrion devising the House of Commons and the House of Lords, with a more ceremonial monarchy. Basically the UK after the Magna Carta.

Danny ends up on the Iron Throne and survives the events of the show. The show ends with a scene with her as an old lady on her deathbed.

Hope the dragons burn Dany and choose Jon as the rightful rulers as she tries to kill him.

Arya

I would have still considered her a remote possibility... but she proved this season that won't happen. Not only does she absolutely abhor it... she told Sansa how she'd kill every lord who disagreed with Jon. Like... that's worse than Joffrey. She wouldn't last a day with that attitude.

I think Tyrion will end up as Lord Regent for Dany's child with Jon (I think there is a serious chance of both Dany and Jon dying, they have to keep shocking us). As for the books, I don't think there will be an Iron Throne left. At this stage I think the books will have a fundamentally different ending. GRRM just can't get away with publishing a book with the exact same ending as the show 5 years after the show ended (I doubt book 7 will be out before 2023 lol).

This -and Jon Snow (or rather, Aegon Targaryen) dies saving the world from the Night King and his white walkers and undead wights.  Sansa meanwhile becomes Warden of the North.

Besides Arya, or "no one," does anyone else have a realistic shot of being the main ruler in Westeros?

(besides the Night King)

Dany ending up as ruler of Westeros is the dumbest possible ending.  The Iron Throne is something that she's hoped to gain for for most of the series, so the ending is that she does indeed get it?  Boring.  What is her character arc then?  She learns how to be a better ruler?  Again, boring.  Somewhat better would be her having to make a choice between gaining the throne and something more important (e.g., the survival of the human race).

I guess Jon ending up on the throne would be a little better, but still not my preferred outcome.  If anyone's going to end up as a monarch at the end (and I still think it's possible that no one will), my preference would actually be Sansa.  Her arc would be that she got what she wanted from the beginning (to be queen), but not under the circumstances that she wanted, and only after all of her fantasies about the royal life have been shattered.

Yes, I just said that a similar arc would be dumb for Dany, but that's because Dany has already been a Queen for half the series, so I don't think it works the same for her.  It would work better for Sansa, if they're going to go that route with anyone.

Jon sacrifices himself to save the world and Dany is the ruler of Westeros at the end. Not sure if the iron throne will physically exist at the end though.
