How does the Stark line continue? Jon is a Targaryen, Sansa is a woman (children would not have the name Stark), Arya is also a woman, and Bran can never be lord of anything (creepy).

 

How does the Lannister line continue? Cersei is a woman and Jaime swore an oath to never marry. 

 

How does the Targaryen line continue? Dany can't have children. Jon?

Is there any reason Bran can't be a lord, assuming he ever leaves Bloodraven's cave? Than there is Rickon on Skagos who could be named Lord and continue the Stark line. Sansa could keep her name or one of her children could take the Stark name. Same with Arya. Jon could also either be legitimized as a Stark or take the Stark name depending on if  he leaves the watch and how the R+L=J theory comes out in the books. 

Cersei will probably keep the Lannsiter name and one of Tommen's future children could take the Lannister name or Mrycella could take it. Then there is Kevan's two surviving children, Genna and her kids and grandkids, and then there is Daven and his sisters. 

If Dany can't have kids Jon could take the Targaryen named depending on the R+L=J storyline int he books. Than there is also Aegon VI.

Probably in the Stark's case Sansa would continue a matriarchial line until a son is born from her who will be named a Stark.  

For Lannisters, Jaime forsake those vows. He is free to marry and breed. There are other Lannisters like Reginald Lannister from season 2. 

Targaryen line is done for.

I thought Rickon was possibly being kept around to be the "future" of House Stark but based on the shaggydog theory and events in the show I think that's up in the air. For that reason I think the Starks are the closest family to being extinct with the current generation. 

Targaryens have a woman and a young man currently claiming to represent the current generation, neither have yet to produce heirs. 

 

The Lannisters are as numerous as the freys. You'd need to wipe out Kevan and his children to even make a dent on the main branch, and the ensuing branches are numerous.

1 - as far as everybody is concerned, the Stark main line is extinct. All six children are KIA or MIA. Robb and Jon are dead like a Norwegian Blue parrot, the younger boys are presumed murdered by Theon, Sansa and Arya are missing.

The Starks have been succeeded by the Boltons by right of conquest and/or marriage to fArya - make your pick which matters more.

There are at least three cadet branches of the Starks - Karstark and the semi-canon Starks of Barrowton and White Habrour.

2 - Cersei is the current Lady of Casterly Rick, and - after her - legally it should be Myrcella (as Tommen takes KL). But the main legal principle of Westerosi Law is expediency, hence her successor could be somebody else. Myrcella married to a male Lannister cousin would solve the situation pretty nicely.

3 - Jon is DEAD. Not to mention that Jon is a Stark bastard. And is a member of the Nights Watch who foreswore any inheritance.

If Dany is barren then fAegon's children - if he is legit or acknowledged as legit, which is as good as being the same thing - could inherit after her - if she leaves anything to inherit, that is. If fAegon is legit, then she is his heir, with boys being above girls on the succession ladder.

If fAeon is acknowledged as a fake, then Stannis followed by Shireen are her heirs, as these are her closest relatives.

Couldn't Tyrion also be pardoned and another source for future Lannisters? And even if he continued to be a fugitive from the seven kingdoms, he would still have Lannister offspring. However, as it was stated earlier, there are plenty of Lannisters so I'm not worried about their line.

Tyrion could be the source of Lannister Heirs. If he marries, that is.

But he is tainted as a kinslayer so his line is almost certain to be shunted for Lancel's or Tyrek's - these being closest to the main line - or "some other Lannister" who - through a mix of blood ties and fortitious circumstances - ends up with Casterly Rock.

With all issue of Edwyle accounted as dead save for "Arya", precisely which Waynwood descendant is the heir/ess of Jocelyn?

1- A lesser house can marry Sansa and they use the Stark name. Especially if the lesser house has Stark blood already. See Harry the Heir.

2- There are a lot of Lannisters who can either marry Myrcella or just inherit it on their own through the family. Tywin's great nephew or something.

3- See #1. Velaryon?
