Game of Thrones Season 7 concluded recently, and everyone, including me is having a hard time dealing with the fact that we will have to wait a year for the next season, or even more than that. But, let’s not talk about that. Rather, I’m here to talk about “The Dragon and the Wolf”, which was the most watched episode in Game of Thrones history. This episode was also the longest GoT episode, and there were several things that confused the fans. I’ll be explaining them here. So let’s begin.
The Cleganebowl refers to the duel of the two Clegane brothers, which is yet to come. It has been named “Cleganebowl” by the fans, and it is highly anticipated. In episode 7, we saw the two face each other, and then Sandor told his brother, he was coming for him later. Probably in Season 8. It would be amazing to Sandor settle the score.
Mirri Maz Dur
Mirri Maz Dur was discussed in this episode, when Daenerys talked about why she would never have kids. She told Jon it was the witch who murdered her husband, who told her. However, that part was very clearly left out of the show. In the books, she did tell her that, however.
Aegon Targaryen was revealed to be the name of Jon Snow in this episode, and he’s the true heir to the Iron Throne. Rhaegar’s other son with Elia Martell was also named Aegon. Many fans have been confused as to why he was named Aegon, but that’s because Rhaegar knew his son named “Aegon” would be the Prince that was Promised. So, he gave them both the same name.
No One was a phrase that Sansa used in the last episode of Season 6 finale. She talked about how No One could protect her. Arya is No One. In this episode, we saw Sansa Stark and Arya working together to kill Littlefinger, and Arya ended up protecting Sansa, being No One.
Valonqar is a highly debatable topic that hasn’t yet made its appearance in the shows. It basically states that the “little one” would ultimately kill Cersei. This could be anyone, from Jaime to Tyrion, or maybe not even a little brother. In any case, as Jaime departed for the Battle in the North, he erased her past with Cersei, and now, he’s clearly one of those who should be a serious threat to Cersei.
Eastwatch was attacked by the Night King in the Game of Thrones Season 7 Finale. The CGI looked pretty epic, I didn’t expect it to look this amazing. The Night King completely destroyed one huge chunk of the wall. No, the entire wall wasn’t destroyed, and no, it wasn’t Castle Black. That part is the middle of that Wall and is safe and sound.
Tormund and Beric
Tormund and Beric were both in the attack at Eastwatch by the Night King. Their fates have been in question since the episode aired, but they’re both safe. They ran west, and they avoided the chunk of the Wall that fell. Did you enjoy “The Dragon and the Wolf”? Let me know in the comments section below!
Major Game of Thrones Theory on Night King In Season 8!
The Night King is the biggest threat that the Seven Kingdoms have ever faced in the history of Game of Thrones. He’s the Great Other, the one who controls all the Others, and the Wights. The Night King was created by the Leaf and other Children of the Forest, who pushed a Dragonglass dagger into the heart of a First Man.
They wanted to turn him into a weapon. it is assumed that to some point, they were able to control it. However, soon, they began losing control, and it was hopeless in the end.
The Night King became the true enemy. He raised more White Walkers along with him, and the dead were raised as Wights. This led to the Children of Forest teaming up with the First men, who later pushed they into a corner.
They were sealed off by the creation of the wall, supposedly by Brandon Stark, who was known as Brandon the Builder. The period when they battled against each other was known as the Long Night.
Since then, the White Walkers were quiet, but not anymore. In “The Dragon and the Wolf”, we saw how the Night King, who was riding Undead Viserion, destroyed the Wall successfully, and rode past it.
But the question remains, why is the Night King doing this? What does he really want? The answer could be that the Night King just wants to kill all the men, as he was created to do. But, if that was the case, the Children of the Forest wouldn’t have run from him.
I don’t really have an idea myself, but I’m led to believe that the Night King wants balance. The Children of the Forest didn’t push back the White Walkers. They formed a peace treaty with them. The wall was erected by The Night King himself.
But, the men weren’t true to their word, and they began doing something that they shouldn’t have been doing. This woke the White Walkers, and now, they think that humanity is too dangerous to be allowed to live.
So what will happen in Season 8? I believe it’s a long shot, but I don’t believe the White Walkers will be killed off completely. I think the peace pact will be remade by Bran, who is somehow, the only one who has seen the Night King annd made contact with him, apart from Jon Snow.
