What's your finale montage? (Game of Thrones and Scorpion Spoilers)

Some viewers have expressed disappointment with the ending of Game of Thrones, so Dan Olsen made a video montage explaining what happened next:
(Spoilers, obviously.)
Spoiler: Show
But other series have had unsatisfying or abrupt endings too. How would you write a montage to tie them up?
Here's my contribution for Scorpion:

Scorpion Consulting Group filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November 2019.

Paige Dineen's Centipede Consulting Group made massive profits from water purification and climate change mitigation technology, and was sold to the Halliburton Company in 2025. Dineen is now the fifth-richest woman in the world, not including inheritances and divorce settlements.

Ralph Dineen was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at age 21. His mother arranged for an experimental treatment which was completely successful. He now works as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company.

Happy Quinn died in an ekranoplan accident in January 2020.

Toby Curtis adopted a three-year-old girl of normal intelligence in 2021. She is now a successful social media influencer.

Sylvester Dodd retired from Centipede to pursue theoretical physics, and developed the first experimentally verified theory of quantum gravity. He sold all of his comic books and roleplaying game material in 2030.

Cabe Gallo retired from Homeland Security and married Allie Jones. After she died he became isolated and paranoid, started hoarding weapons, and developed extreme right-wing views from social media. He is now the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Florence Tipton invented a wildly successful non-toxic sculpture material for children. She is currently being sued for 200 billion dollars by parents of children with various neurological disorders, although she insists there is no plausible mechanism for her product to cause them.

Walter O'Brien joined Homeland Security as an cyberwarfare specialist. He committed suicide in 2040 with equipment he had earlier described as a "destructive brain scanner". The artificial intelligence that refers to itself as "Walter O'Brien" is not generally accepted to be a copy of O'Brien, or indeed conscious at all.

My idea for what happened next in Game of Thrones?

Spoiler: Show

* Daenerys "moment of madness" is actually completely misreading the situation. She blasts the Lannister soldiers and clears a path to the Red Keep because she ABSOLUTELY believes that this is all a cunning trap by Cersei. That the Lannister surrender is faked and that populace is being used as human shields by the Tyrant Queen so they can't actually get to her. She believes that she made a hard but necessary call to win the battle because she assumed, again due to Cersei having no honor, the bells ringing were a cunning plan. The idea that the guards are NOT fanatically loyal to her and sincere in their surrender is due to the constant shitting on parley, breaking of truce, betrayal, and shit for honor they displayed.

* Bran proves to a disinterested and fatalist king who Tyrion finds is barely interested in signing his name. In the end, he ends up handling all of the rulership himself and Westeros gets the king they didn't want but needed. Bran, himself, corrects most of the Citadel's writings and accomplishes a 40 volume history of the world that changes everything. It's also eventually lost numerous copies as many people try to destroy it in later centuries.

Tyrion is also remembered as an evil wizard who enspelled innocent King Bran and tried to run the kingdom for himself.

* Arya circumnavigated the globe, bitterly disappointed there was no other lands beyond a scattered collection of islands. Ironically, this made her the greatest explorer of all time to that point. She would later become a Red Priest, a pirate, and Queen of the Stepstones.

* Gendry marries a woman named Jeyne Poole who has a passing resemblance to Arya. She narrowly avoided being Littlefinger's backup plan to marry to Ramsey Bolton and still had a shit time of it as a prisoner of his brothel. Oddly enough, it proves to be an aversion of Robert and Cersei with the two eventually getting along.

* Sansa invites Podrick to her chambers several times during visits and raises their resulting offspring herself. The resulting children are either very smart or very pleasant with little inbetween. "The Bastards of the North" are actually beloved folk heroes in future legend.

* Sansa's attempt at an indepedent North fail miserably due to the need for the Six Kingdoms' goods and wealth. Her eldest daughter and heir marries the kingdom back in within a generation. The North propsered greatly under her rule, though.

* Jon DOES NOT become King Beyond the Wall but spends his days setting up trade between the Free Folk and the surprisingly large communities of Northerners at the Wall. He goes by the name Mance and any trace of Jon Snow is gone.

* Drogon brings Daenerys body to the heathen city of Asshai where she's resurrected by Red Priests, battles shadow wizards, and has a series of other adventures. Most people believe these to be nothing but folk tales.

* Under Grey Worms' leadership, the Dothraki destroy the last of the Slaver Outposts and conquer a empire that spreads across Essos. Khal Dragon raises the sons of all the orphaned Khals as his own and the Dothraki grow fat as well as civilized.

When I master a one-shot game, I always try as I might to have a final montage of the PCs, and at least one of them become either President of the United States of America or Governor of Alabama.
There's always one guy like that in all the media that ends like that, it must be a necessity, somehow...

They all go back to Bluto from Animal House, I think.
