Here’s how Daenerys being fireproof contradicts the books

Emilia Clarke goes nude for Game of Thrones: This is all me, all proud, all strong

Daenerys Stormborn, the blood of House Targaryen, mother of dragons and ruler of men, Khaleesi and rightful queen of seven kingdoms. These are the words we’ve heard every time Daenerys has introduced herself on the show. She has some very major Targaryen traits and does total justice to the long description. And about these things, books and the episodes are in total sync. But what the books don’t talk about regarding Targaryens and specially Daenerys is her immunity to fire.

There have been instances in the book of A song of Ice and Fire which say that Daenerys has more tolerance to fire than other human beings. Further, George R.R. Martin himself said, “Lastly, some fans are reading too much into the scene in GAME OF THRONES where the dragons are born — which is to say, it was never the case that all Targaryens are immune to all fire at all times.

And then while chatting with a different source, Martin said that, “TARGARYENS ARE NOT IMMUNE TO FIRE! The birth of Dany’s dragons was unique, magical, wonderous, a miracle. She is called The Unburnt because she walked into the flames and lived. But her brother sure as hell wasn’t immune to that molten gold.

So according to Martin, Targaryens are not immune to fire. Now talking about the show, Daenerys has always been showed to have an immunity against heat and fire. From the pilot episode where she steps in a scathing hot water tub for a bath and does not even flinch, to the time she stepped in Drogo’s Pyre with three dragon eggs and came out unburnt with three baby dragons, the showrunners have always showed Daenerys to be immune to power, sort of a superhero. There is also a theory that goes that probably Daenerys got out of the pyre unharmed because of the blood sacrifice of the sorceress Miri Mazz Durr. But the episode which was aired on Sunday, 15th May, showed Daenerys to come out alive from a burning Dosh Khaleen temple and the temple was completely burnt.

It appears that the showrunners are deviating from the books in terms of her ability to resist fire, or is it possible that she really has this rare gift, which will be revealed later in the books?

Top 10 most shocking deaths on Game of Thrones, according to fans

Game of Thrones was famous for showcasing some of the most shocking and gruesome deaths in television history. George R. R. Martin’s infamous style of killing off fan favourite characters is a defining characteristic of the show. Over the course of its decade-long run, there were many jaw-dropping death scenes that shook the audience to their core. In April this year, HBO celebrated the Iron Anniversary on account of its 10-year completion. They asked the fans to vote for the most shocking deaths on the show.

More than 33,000 fans voted on the occasion, and the final results are here as follows:

 

10. Walder Frey (Season 6, Episode 10)

Walder Frey’s involvement in the Red Wedding made him one of the most hated characters on Game of Thrones. Fans were amazed when Arya Stark used her face-swapping skills to deliver poetic justice to the one who betrayed her family.

 

9. Ramsay Bolton (Season 6, Episode 9)

Ramsay

One of the most satisfying killing scenes in the entire series, Ramsay Bolton’s death almost made the audience cheer for the Starks. Jon Snow defeats Bolton and his army with the help of wildlings and Knights of Vale, and Sansa rightly delivers him to the hounds who once fed on his victims.

 

8. Viserion (Season 7, Episode 6)

Viserion

Daenerys‘ rescue attempt results in the death of one of her ‘children’. Viserion is killed by a well-aimed javelin thrown by the Night King, resulting in an instant death.

 

7. Littlefinger (Season 7, Episode 7)

Littlefinger

In a shocking turn of events, Petyr Baelish “Littlefinger” loses at his own game of cunning, when Arya Stark tricks him into believing he can create a rift between the Stark sisters.

 

6. Joffrey Baratheon (Season 4, Episode 2)

Joffrey

Another one of the most satisfying deaths on the show, Joffrey Baratheon, one of the most hated characters on the show, choked on his own blood and died horribly after being poisoned by Olenna Tyrell.

 

5. Jon Snow (Season 5, Episode 10)

Jon snow

Fans cried when the show’s poster boy was stabbed to death by his brothers of the Night’s Watch. Luckily Jon was resurrected by Melisandre in the next episode.

 

4. Ned Stark (Season 1, Episode 9)

Ned stark

The first death on the show that moved the viewers by large, many fans were hoping that the honourable Warden of the North would somehow escape his execution.

 

3. Hodor (Season 6, Episode 5)

Hodor

One of the most loving characters in television history, Hodor’s secret and his demise made even the toughest of fans cry out rivers. He dies heroically trying to save Bran Stark from the undead.

 

2. Oberyn Martell (Season 4, Episode 8)

Oberyn Martell

Oberyn Martell became a fan favourite in a really short time, but Pedro Pascal’s charm wasn’t enough to keep him alive. He was crushed to death by the huge monstrosity known as the Mountain.

 

1. The Red Wedding (Season 3, Episode 9)

Red wedding

There’s no denying the Red Wedding is the most terrifying death scene ever filmed in all of television history. The brutal execution of the Starks and their supporters by the Freys and Boltons left fans worldwide in utter shock.
