Spoilers ahead… yada yada yada. Huddle up fellow “Game of Thrones” enthusiasts and let’s delve into the latest and greatest fan theory that’s being bandied about. You know how Daenerys Targaryen is really reluctant to commit to sending her almighty dragons and armies to the North to fight the Night King and his legion of White Walkers? Khaleesi’s always telling Jon Snow, “An army of undead sounds absolutely unrealistic, now excuse me while I go fly one of my three dragons that I gave birth to by being burned alive in a fire that I walked out unscathed from.” But then Davos and Jon busted out their chalk set and drew some pretty wicked cave drawings of White Walkers, so now Daenerys is all like, “Yeah, I guess it’s possible for zombies, but you’ve got to bend the knee first, then I might help you after I take the Iron Throne for myself.” But what if an episode from all the way back in Season 2 predicts that the Dragon Queen will put her pursuit of the Iron Throne on hold and rush to the North to help Jon Snow and his Suicide Squad?
A fan theory from Redditor sephelutis goes all the way back to Episode 10 of Season 2 of “GoT” to point out that maybe Daenerys Stormborn will be heading North of the Wall way before she wanted to. The Magnificent Seven consisting of Snow, Beric Dondarrion, Jorah Mormont, Gendry (Will he die next episode? This teaser suggests that he will), Sandor The Hound Clegane, Thoros of Myr, and Tormund Giantsbane are going North of the Wall to snag a White Walker for proof that they exist. The teaser for Episode 6 titled “Beyond the Wall” hints that the fierce fighting force will be in some trouble, and even Jon running for his life.
Maybe, just maybe, Daenerys and Drogon travel north to save the day once again.
This fan theory points to the visions that Dany saw in the House of the Undying in Season 2.
Just like in her visions, maybe Khaleesi will come close to the Iron Throne that her father once held, but at the last moment travel beyond the Wall to save her crying dragons. But instead of hearing her baby dragons crying, Daenyrs will postpone her quest for the Iron Throne because she hears a new Targaryen in trouble – Jon Snow, who is beyond the Wall. She will rush to the North just like in her premonition to save a fellow dragon-loving Targaryen in need of help.
Another possible hint is a quote from Quaithe:
To go north, you must journey south. To reach the west, you must go east. To go forward you must go back, and to touch the light you must pass beneath the shadow.” Asshai, Dany thought. She would have me go to Asshai. “Will the Asshai’i give me an army?” she demanded. “Will there be gold for me in Asshai? Will there be ships? What is there in Asshai that I will not find in Qarth?” “Truth,” said the woman in the mask. And bowing, she faded back into the crowd.
Daenerys traveled east on Essos to acquire an army for the conquest of Westeros. Maybe she will need to travel North before she can go South and dominate. With only two episodes this season and a mere six episodes in Season 8, we’re running out of time for these prophecies to become reality. A super battle of ice and fire could be happening in the next episode or Episode 7, the final episode of Season 7.
