    Has anyone tried to determine how many make up the different armies? Wondering how many Dany actually has. Also what might Cersei have. Jamie did not bring the Lannister army with him and that makes me mad too, if he in fact is Lord of House Lannister. They can't all be at King's Landing. No one's even mentioned the Reeds either. Are they holding back to keep escape south an option???

    Just thought of this for tonight's game of thrones what if the night King send his army to winterfield but he flies to Old Town to burn up the citadel and as he flies he goes over King's Landing, and that is Bran's vision???

    -Theon & Brienne should be toast tonight
    -Bran might save the rest of them though
    -Hard to imagine Dany, Tyrion, Arya, Sansa & Jamie not making it to see Cersei die

    What do you think fellow GoT fans?

    Well if we know that john is on the ground and he is suppresed and his face is covered with blood, we should think that rhaegal is dead. And dany and drogon will burn it

  • Kimberley Morton
    Kimberley Morton Month ago +1

    I think Jaime will live to carry out his promise to Rhaegar before he died at the Trident.
    But Rhaegal, the dragon is a gonner.

    Jaime promised Rhaegar that he would defend his children, he could no do so because the Mountain killed them without Jaime knowing. So Jaime will die defending Jon or he kill live to watch over and be Kingsguard/Lord Commander to Jon's child.

    The names of the dragons, I believe, are the key to their fate.

    Viserion (named after Viserys) will be killed by Drogon. As Khal Drogo killed Viserys. Molten gold is similar to dragonfire, right...?

    Rhaegal (Rhaegar) Died in battle defending his family. The name died at the hands of Robert Baratheon, the dragon will be killed in a battle with Undead Viserion. House Baratheon comes from the Targaryen line (which is partially why he was allowed to be King) but he stood against his own blood. Now Viserion has turned against his blood as his corpse is fighting for the Night King.

    Drogon (Drogo). I don't think he will die because Khal Drogo promised to conquer the Seven Kingdoms for Daenerys. He will get injured as the Khal did. However Drogo had a shoulder wound, a similar wound to the one Drogon got at the Loot Train Battle, so that part may have already happened. If this is right Drogon will have to battle two undead dragons which may lead to him with an injured wing to ground him and make him vulnerable.

    But the Night King can only resurrect the people he or his army has killed, so the crypt theory probably wont be a thing

    I was thinking of all the people that die, the NK will just bring them back and then it will be an endless cycle of wights vs the alive folk. They have to get to the NK before he does this.

    The green glass plays a factor in this battle and I think Sam figures it out and saves the day in episode 4 or 5.

  • lenni lou
    lenni lou Month ago

    I think the Stark dead will rise to protect Winterfell. The whole series has been how the Starks are people of honour. Their words are Winter is Coming teamed up with ancestral sword named Ice, there must always be a Stark in Winterfell, the North Remembers etc etc all of it put together, for me anyway, points to they have preparing for this moment for 8000 years no way will they fight with the Night King..... I hope 😂

    All Valerian steel is there, maybe the most powerful sword - The Sword in the morning, forged from Meteors is not there. Maybe it is only weaponl that you can kill Night King because it is not from a planet. I mean, what the heck most powerful sword in the kingdoms doing above some fire place.

  • The CuriousIndividual Dan

    Since Varys was predicted to betray Dany and John (or someone I cant remember who) by Melisandre
    A theory of mine is that when people will fall back to the crypts, he will lock the white walkers in with them, to give him a chance to escape but somehow will die fleeing

  • Matte Matte

    I want a non so important character as Podrick, to survive. He is innocent, humble and kind. So different from the rest who all had their "bad" moments. Also the dead Starks will fight for the livings.

  • Spark Daddy
    Spark Daddy Month ago

    I think the Nite King and the army of the dead cannot enter the crypts as long as Bran doesn’t go down there. Just like they couldn’t go into the tree until Bran went in. I’m also thinking that it’s why the Starks are buried down there, so they can’t be raised for the army of the dead. Magic protects the crypts like magic protected the tree. The white walkers didn’t go past the wall until Bran did either. Just thoughts... What do you think?

    Wouldn't it be a good twist if Dany killed Jon???
    Rhaegal will die possibly
    Gilly will die
    Sansa will die
    Varys will die
    Most of the people in the crypts will be the first to die.
    The secret tunnels under Winterfell will be penetrated by the dead.
    A few will only just escape Winterfell, Davos, Jon, Arya on Drogons back.
    Dany will die

    I dont see Jaime or Tyrian dying. Otherwise the Bron scene was pointless, unless he surprises them during the battle or after
