Wow. The Game of Thrones trailer just dropped, and unlike the Sand Snakes, I am totally broken and unwell right now! If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it right now and meet me back here:
Okay, so if you watched the trailer, you know Jamie Lannister is about to fight for the living, Tormund is still alive (!!!), Cersei Lannister is still plotting, Arya Stark is hella stressed and out of breath, and Daenerys Targaryen’s last two living dragons are about to do the damn thing. All that’s great, but there’s one frame you should really be paying attention to, and it’s when Jon Snow and Daenerys look like they’re about to ride her two dragons, which everyone is totally freaking out about.
When Jon and Dany approach Drogon and Rhaegal in the trailer, the two dragons are standing over a pile of gigantic bones that are definitely way too big to be human bones—and could very well be the remains of Viserion. Of course, this could be, like, 20 dead horses next to each other, but let’s indulge this theory.
If you recall (how could you not?), the Night King turned Viserion into an ice dragon last season, which means he was poised to obliterate the whole world if Drogon and Rhaegal didn’t handle their business.
Now, we haven’t seen what it looks like when an ice dragon dies, but it likely wouldn’t shatter like the White Walkers do, so these unidentified remains might mean Dany’s dragons did their job and gave all the humans a fighting chance at taking down the Night King’s army.
Plus, if there’s no ice dragon to worry about, then there’s hope that every single character on the show will not die an awful death. If true, this changes e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. April 14 can’t come soon enough.
