Omg, Fans Think Dany's Last Dragon Will Die in the Finale of 'Game of Thrones'

You probably know by now that the Game of Thrones finale is this Sunday. So naturally, the entire internet is fully spiraling trying to figure out how this epic (and at some points terrible) saga will end. Here’s some bad news: Fans think Drogon is going to die. YEP.

Spoilers ahead from… the entirety of Game of Thrones. If for some reason you haven’t watched this series but you clicked on this post anyway, you should feel free to excuse yourself!

Here’s the deal. Dany started with three dragons. She named them after some of the men in her life. Fans think each dragon’s fate was basically determined by the name Dany gave it.

For example, Rhaegal was named after Dany’s older brother Rhaegar Targaryen, who died fighting Robert Baratheon in the Battle of the Trident. According to the Thrones books, Rhaegar was killed when Robert struck him in the chest with a war hammer. Rhaegal was killed by Euron Greyjoy, and the scorpion spears went through his chest, so the dragon’s death mirrored his namesake’s death.

Bustle found a quote from George R.R. Martin’s books where Dany explains the rationale for naming a dragon after her brother: “Viserys was cruel and weak and frightened, yet he was my brother still. His dragon will do what he could not.”

But unfortunately, Viserion was the dragon that was turned into an ice dragon when the Night King pulled him from the depths of that frozen lake. So he died not once, but twice, and he “turned” against Dany before his second death, basically betraying her like her brother kinda, sorta did.

And lastly, Drogon. Drogon was named after Khal Drogo, Dany’s first love. He died trying to defend Dany’s honor… which could spell the same sort of fate for Drogon. Dany is going to be facing some serious obstacles in the finale after literally roasting all those people.

The idea here is that the guys these dragons were named after have all died, therefore Drogon is also going to die. Name = end result. TBH, I’d be surprised if anyone from Dany’s crew makes it out of the finale alive, regardless of their namesake, so this theory could be correct by default.
