Half the fun of watching “Game of Thrones” is predicting what might happen. Ever since the show beheaded Ned Stark (Sean Bean) in Season 1, it proved that anything goes and nobody’s safe. But if you don’t have time to monitor online chatter, we’ve got you covered. Here’s your guide to the biggest predictions about Season 8.
A Jonerys baby Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) were last seen canoodling at the end of Season 7. Many fans think that union will produce a child. Why? Well, first of all, the book series is called “A Song of Ice and Fire.”
So having a baby would make that title literal: ice (Jon, who’s spent most of the show shivering on glaciers) coming together with fire (Dany, who’s walked through flames multiple times). Dany also thinks she can’t have kids, although her source — a shady witch from Season 1 — is unreliable.
Dany discussed this with Jon in Season 7… which seems like a Chekhov’s gun if we ever heard one. Author George R. R. Martin has also said the ending will be “bittersweet.” If both Jon and Dany die, but their legacy lives on in the form of their kid who gets the Throne, that would sure fit the bill.
