With solely two episodes left in Recreation of Thrones‘ remaining season, we’re looking out for a couple of twists and turns that followers have been anticipating however have not but seen come to fruition.
Particularly, we’re on excessive alert for any signal that Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is perhaps pregnant, since that is the one fan principle that appeared unavoidable this season. Season 7 did greater than remind us that Daenerys believes she’ll by no means have kids; it beat that expository horse to dying. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) talked about it when discussing who would succeed her on the Iron Throne, saying, “You say you possibly can’t have kids, however there are lots of methods of selecting a successor.” She advised Jon (Package Harington) as a lot too when she stated, “The dragons are my kids. They’re the one kids I am going to ever have.” There was additionally that point within the Dragonpit when Daenerys revisited the subject with Jon, explaining that the witch who killed Drogo (Jason Momoa) advised her she was barren. He then neatly reminded her that witches aren’t at all times a dependable supply of data, reinforcing the suggestion that Dany’s infertility was only a bunch of B.S.

Because of Dany and Jon’s incestuous coupling on their journey again to Winterfell, most followers theorized that they’d conceive the subsequent Targaryen inheritor, and she or he could be the one to sit down on the Iron Throne on the finish of all of it. Now that we’re coming into the house stretch of Season 8, it is time to both put up or shut up on that individual reveal, and fans think Episode 5 might finally confirm the theory.
The one clear shot of Daenerys within the trailer for Sunday’s upcoming episode reveals her in Dragonstone, seemingly nonetheless in mourning for Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) and Rhaegal. Her hair is unkempt and free as she stares out the window, however neither of these information is as necessary as the truth that Daenerys is turned away from the viewers at such an angle that it is tough, however not fairly not possible, to see whether or not she’s hiding a child bump below her crossed arms.
You’ll be able to zoom in as a lot as you need, however from this angle there’s simply no telling whether or not her posture and free clothes is indicative of the being pregnant we have all been suspecting or only a trick of the attention. It could be exhausting to think about that if sufficient months had handed to indicate a child bump the place beforehand there had been none that Dany would nonetheless be so deep in her grief that she would not have discovered somebody new to braid her hair — a job Missandei little doubt carried out daily. Plus, if she did spend months staring forlornly out the window, it is exhausting to think about Tyrion nonetheless standing along with her in a bid for the throne.

Sadly, our solely different indicator of how a lot time has handed could be Cersei’s being pregnant, and the trailer does not give us an ideal shot of her both. Till we get a greater look Dany on this episode, it will likely be exhausting to make a definitive ruling. Even so, there’s at all times the chance that Recreation of Thrones could possibly be saving this twist for its remaining episode, airing Sunday, Could 19, so all of us higher be ready for something in these subsequent two weeks.
