Game of Thrones fans were left shocked by this year’s jaw-dropping season finale. And now audiences think that they might know what Jon and Daenerys’ fate will be at the series’ end. Before us lie swords, sorcery and spoilers – many, many spoilers – as we delve into one of GoT’s most intriguing fan theories.
In order to discuss why this theory is so game-changing, we must first take a look at Daenerys “Dany” Targaryen’s past. Indeed, the character – played brilliantly by British actress Emilia Clarke – wasn’t always the strong-willed Mother of Dragons we know today. In fact, she was merely a pawn in the schemes of her conniving brother Viserys.
Born to the “Mad King” Aerys Targaryen, Daenerys and Viserys begin the series as royalty in exile. In a bid to reclaim his crown, Viserys weds his sister off to warlord Khal Drogo in exchange for an army. Yet despite her initial hesitations, Daenerys nonetheless falls in love with the fearsome Drogo and becomes pregnant with his child.
