This story includes spoilers for 'Game of Thrones' Season 8, Episode 5, "The Bells."
Ever since Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen began a romantic relationship, fans have been betting that the Mother of Dragons would get pregnant. In fact, there are so many people predicting this, that the hypothetical child appears on the list of betting odds for who will take the Iron Throne. And one fan has recently headed to Reddit to discuss the possibility.
Reddit user FalconGK81 recalls Daenerys' talk with Jon about not being able to get pregnant in Season 7, and asks why they would put the scene in there if it didn't mean anything. Many fans have had the same thought. Dany was very adamant on telling her lover that she would not have kids. Foreshadowing?
The fan also brought up the fact that the showrunners have claimed they'll be in hiding when the final episode premieres. "I plan to be very drunk, and very far from the internet," Benioff told Entertainment Weekly when asked where he'll be this Sunday night. In addition, Emilia Clarke said she had to take a walk in the rain after she read the final script. What tragic twist would make the cast and crew act like this? Something big has got to happen, and below is what this theorist thinks.
"Destroying King's Landing was terrible, but it wasn't full on tragic," the user argues. "There's more, and I'm pretty sure I know what it is. Dany is pregnant. And she'll die. Likely by Jon, the father. That's the tragedy we're in for. And then Jon will wear a crown he doesn't want, sit on a throne he never asked for, and be a Targaryen, alone in the world. A terrible thing."
We haven't had any major clues that would back the theory up from this season, but it would be a "bittersweet" ending, something George R.R. Martin has claimed the finale would be. If Dany has gone full Mad Queen, she'll likely have to die. But there might be a very big price that comes along with it.
