Game of Thrones is quickly coming to an end, and many story lines are starting to wrap up. The show will have some happy endings for some characters, but not all. What many fans were probably not prepared for is Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons also being destined to a sad fate.
In the Season 7 episode, “Beyond the Wall,” we see Jon Snow and his men get surrounded by White Walkers and wights. Daenerys understandably tries to come save the day with Viserion and her other dragons. Sadly, Viserion dies and is turned into a wight by the Night King.
It has long been a theory among fans that a dragon will be turned. But is this part of a bigger plan? We came up with a theory that says the answer is yes, as well as six points proving why.
1. The theory: Like Cersei, Daenerys is destined to watch her children die
We knew early on that a witch gave Cersei Lannister a prophecy when she was young. She was told that she would be a queen — only to be dethroned by a younger woman. She would also have three children that she would outlive.
The death of Cersei’s children has already happened: Joffrey was poisoned by Olenna Tyrell; Tommen committed suicide; and Myrcella was poisoned in Dorne by Ellaria Sand and the Sandsnakes. Now, Daenerys has seen the first of her children (aka dragons) killed.
The two queens could be potentially tied to the same fate, given how they have many other things in common.
