Now that Game of Thrones is finally over, one would think that would also mean the end to the countless theories fans have been concocting over the past few years. But even though we likely will never get answers to our remaining questions, that doesn’t mean we’re done analyzing every moment of the last season and posing our theories to anyone who will listen.
Case in point: Some viewers are now under the impression that Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) survived the series finale, and it’s actually not as unbelievable an idea as it sounds.
As Cosmopolitan reports, Twitter users have been speculating that after Jon Snow stabs Daenerys, Drogon swoops in to take her somewhere that could potentially save her. This idea stems from the Season 6 episode “The Door,” which showed Tyrion Lannister and Lord Varys meeting with Kinvara, the High Red Priestess from Volantis. In the scene, she tells the pair that Daenerys was The One Who Was Promised, and she would be spreading the word.
Clearly, the Priestess believed in Daenerys, and fans are now thinking this could very well mean she’d be willing to bring her back from the dead, just as Melisandre did with Jon Snow. As it was mentioned in the series finale that Drogon was spotted flying east, people are speculating that he was taking Dany to Kinvara in Volantis. Many have taken to Twitter to pose their theory as to where the Mother of Dragons ended up, imagining her living peacefully in Essos.
Diehard Daenerys fans would have loved to have seen a better conclusion for the character we followed so closely since the very first episode, so it’s not really surprising that many are coming up with ways for her to have faced a better fate. Despite the fact that we’ll likely never know where Drogon took her, it’s evident that the character will live on in fans’ hearts and, of course, in fan theories.
