Game of Thrones season 8 is supposed to fulfill a lot of prophecies that have been made in the past. Some of them are the Valonqar prophecy, the Azor Ahai prophecy, etc. One of them also includes Daenerys Targaryen in it. For many years, she has believed that she could never have children.
The last time she was pregnant with Khal Drogo’s son was back in season 1. But, we know how that turned out. She lost both her unborn child and husband.
What was the season 8 spoiler prophecy theory made in season 1?
If you don’t remember the Game of Thrones season 8 spoiler prophecy properly, you can watch it here.
What does the prophecy mean?
She had asked the witch, Mirri Maz Duur when her husband would get well and the witch replied, “When the sun rises in the West.” But, a new interpretation has arisen.
And it could mean that Daenerys is pregnant with Jon Snow’s child. u/WhyDidTip has theorized on Reddit that the words ‘sun rising’ might actually mean a son.
Will Daenerys have a child in Game of Thrones season 8?
In Game of Thrones season 8 episode 2, Daenerys finally learns about Jon’s real identity. And she comes down to the conclusion that he also has a claim to the Iron Throne.
The redditor has mentioned that Jon is the son in the prophecy and he has risen ‘multiple’ times in the story.
“He rose to become the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, he also rose from the dead and now he has risen to become the king in the North.”
The part at the end was not mentioned in the show. Daenerys has previously mentioned many times that she will never be able to bear children. The dragons will be her only children. But, the prophecy does not state that in any way. That is just Dany’s perception.
In fact, it could be the exact opposite. The last part of the prophecy gives the hint that Dany might bear one more child. And she will name if after Drogo so that he can live on. That would mean that part of the prophecy will be fulfilled. And as for the mountains blowing in the wind, it could mean the fall of the Wall before Game of Thrones season 8.
Game of Thrones season 8: Further breakdown of the prophecy
In the seventh season, there was a lot of discussion regarding Daenerys’ ability to bear a child. Jon Snow had also asked Dany if she really believed the witch words. He alleged that she might not be a reliable source of information. (On point).
But, if a baby really comes into play in Game of Thrones season 8, it would really complicate the situation. The Redditor u/WhyDidTip suggests that Dany might already be pregnant. But, she will be at crossroads with herself as now she sees Jon Snow as a roadblock to the Iron Throne.
Although Dany has given just a limited reaction to Jon’s news, we know there is more to come. Will Dany accept the truth and give the throne to Jon? Or will they rule it together? Or if the worst happens, we might a showdown between Daenerys and Jon Snow.
