Game of Thrones fans have been combing over every last clue in the series to help them figure out what will happen in the series’ finale, screening on HBO this Sunday night. A quick recap: Daenerys burned King’s Landing to ashes, killing soldiers, civilians, and characters we’ve grown to love (or at least fearfully respect), like Jaime and Cersei Lannister. Jon, Tyrion, Arya, and co. all watched as the Targaryen turned into the Mad Queen, and it’s pretty clear that nobody is going to support her after the Drogon-fuelled rampage.
Still, Dany’s fate is in the air. Will her fiery Targaryen nature steer her to full destruction, taking out everyone she knows and loves? (Not many of those left, to be honest.) Or will the remaining Thrones crew try to restrain or reason with her—or just retire her?
Looking into previous GoT episodes to predict what’s going to happen has been a rich source of theories and ah-ha moments, and one particular season 2 sequence has already yielded plenty. Dany’s House of the Undying vision was difficult to understand way back when it originally screened:
But one fan noted that it foreshadowed her destruction of King’s Landing, showing her walking through a burnt-out shell of the Red Keep as ash fell from the sky.
Now Buzzfeed has homed in on two other details from the scene. First of all, Dany walks towards the Iron Throne, but turns away at the last minute—could this mean she will never rule? And secondly, after she leaves the castle, she walks into a dreamy scene where Khal Drogo and their son sit, waiting for her. “Maybe I am dead and I just don’t know it yet,” she says. Does this mean she’ll die after laying waste to the city?
Buzzfeed also points out that Bran’s season 6 vision showing the Mad King, Dany’s father Aerys Targaryen, yelling, “Burn them all!” interspersed with hyperfast images of Dany with her dragons, and green wildfire. The combination could be seen simply as a reminder that Aerys was a violent tyrant, but given that last episode we saw his daughter light it all up (including the caches of wildfire he’d hidden throughout the city), perhaps it means that Bran’s vision predicted Dany following in her father’s footsteps and causing the huge conflagration.
You probably don’t have time to watch every single episode of the show before we do discover what happens in Thrones‘ endgame, but one thing’s for sure—it’s not looking good for the Dragon Queen.
