Game of Thrones is beginning to creep up and one thing we do know for sure is Daenerys is about to be handed one massive blow when she’s confronted with her dead dragon, Viserion, and he’s tearing it up all over Westeros.
The season seven finale saw Viserion killed by an army of Wights and claimed by The Night King – who Maisie Williams revealed is actually pretty ‘fit’ in real life yesterday.
As Daenerys abandoned the corpse of one of her scaly-winged child, Viserion was revived with chilling blue eyes and blew down The Wall of Westeros in one huge blast.
However, since the episode, titled The Dragon an the Wold, was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award last month – one of its 22 nods this year alone – fans have noticed something in the script which wasn’t mentioned on screen.
‘He’s [the Night King] done the same thing to Viserion that he did to Craster’s sons. Only those were babies, and this is a dragon,’ the passage reads
So, what does that all mean?
Well, Craster’s sons were revived as something much more dangerous than your average Wight; their icy blue eyes share a resemblance to The Night King’s and it was the deathly leader himself who threw the spear which delivered Viserion’s fatal blow, and thus, Daenerys’ beloved beast is almost certainly a winged White Walker.
Though, some sceptics are unconvinced and spotted a huge plot hole with one fan on Reddit snapping: ‘That doesn’t make any sense according to the show’s own rules, firstly the only character we see being reanimated into a White Walker was Craster’s son is ‘Oathkeeper’ and he was alive and well at that point.
‘Also the show made a huge point to show that it was a very specific ritual by the Walkers (at the lands of Always Winter?) while Viserion was brought back just near the lake, on top of that all the dead character that have been brought back have been Wights too.’
They went on: ‘Also when we see Viserion attack the wall he clearly had holes in his wings and was rotting, which is a clearly distinct Wight feature not a White Walker one.’ Season seven closed with Dany and Jon Snow returning to The Wall to destroy The Night King and his army to save the Wesotri population. With several cast members promising season eight will be the ‘bloodiest’ yet, at this point we don’t have high hopes for anyone.
