A complicated explanation is coming...
Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde
It’s not long until Game of Thrones season 7 arrives on our screens. Well, we’ve still got four months, but still. We have so many unanswered questions after last year’s shocker of a season finale.
Well if you watch the promo trailer closely enough you might find that there are some telling answers in it. Except the Ed Sheeran one – we have no idea how he’s going to fit into it all.
Avid fans will remember that Daenerys’ ancestor, Aegon Targaryen, took control of Westeros with his two sisters who were on dragons by his side. This is the basis of the three-headed dragon prophecy that keeps cropping up.
The Mother of Dragons has, of course, got three of her own – but who would be riding the two creatures by her side?
Look away now if you don’t want to know.
Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister.
At the end of season 6, we learned that Jon is actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen, who is also Daenerys’ brother, making her his aunt.
Tyrion might be Lannister, but many believe that his bloodline is actually Targaryen, considering that his mother Joanna slept with Aerys Targaryen (the Mad King, and Daenerys’ dad). If that’s true, Tyrion would be Daenerys’ half-brother.
Still with us? Good.
The trailer suggests that this three-headed dragon prophecy is connected to Daenerys, perhaps history repeating itself, with the Breaker of Chains leading the way, her nephew Jon on one side, and half-brother Tyrion on the other.
Could this trio be joining forces for the epic war about to unfold in Westeros? We really hope so.
Only 116 days until we find out…
