Game of Thrones season 6 episode 2 brought many much awaited surprises for fans. One was that Jon Snow lived. Yes, he lives. Melisandre’s prayers to the Lord of Light made the impact nobody expected them to make. Tyrion unchained the dragons because they weren’t eating in confinement and with Daenerys having fled off somewhere with Drogon, they were missing their mother. Let’s talk about that.
Tyrion is a small man, I mean, I know a small man can cast a very large shadow but in front of dragons, even a man like The Mountain would shiver. We are talking about dragons here. They breathe fire. Then how did Tyrion just release them without any external help. It could only be possible if Tyrion had some relation to them. Because when he spoke to them, he said, “I am here to help you. I am the help. Don’t eat the help.” He said many other things to the dragons and they seemed to be calm as if they understood every bit of it. He told them that he always wanted a dragon and asked his father for one but they were all gone and he used to cry himself to sleep.
So the theory that we are talking about here is that probably Tyrion is a Targaryen.
First of all, in the books its mentioned that Aerys Targaryen, the mad king, always took certain liberties with Tywin’s wife, Joanna, which were uncalled for. For this particular reason, Aerys’s wife dismissed Joanna as her waiting lady. Secondly, even Tyrion’s mother died in childbirth. You may wonder why I am saying even. This is because both Daenerys’s and Jon’s mother died in childbirth. Jon’s mother could be Lyanna according to R+L= J theory. And they showed Lyanna Stark on this Sunday’s episode so the show might be going on that plotline. In the show, Cersei and Tywin mentions many times that Tyrion’s mother died giving birth to him (which is why Cersei hates him so much) and Tywin also said once that he doesn’t have a proof that Tyrion is not his child.
Furthermore, Tyrion does not look like a typical Lannister. In the books it’s written explicitly that while Jamie and Cersei have a typical Lannister look with golden hair and bright green eyes, Tyrion has pale blonde hair and two different colored eyes. This could be because of mixing Targaryen and Lannister blood. Tyrion is also obsessed with dragons and has dragon dreams which are usually common among Targaryens. He also does not get afflicted with disease like Greyscale in spite of coming in close proximity with those who are affected by it but only Targaryens are immune to these diseases.

All these things indicate only one thing that Tyrion could be a Targaryen. Since the dragon has three heads or three riders and we are already sure about one and almost sure about the second. Imagine if Tyrion is the third.
Just can’t wait to watch rest of the episodes.

Does Melisandre’s ‘Green Eyes’ prophecy predict Arya killing Daenerys?
“You will shut many eyes forever – brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes.” So said Melisandre of Asshai when she met Arya Stark for the first time. This prophecy has played out since then, with both ‘brown eyes’ (Walder Frey) and ‘blue eyes’ (Night King) succumbing to Arya’s blade. Fans have long predicted the green eyes to signify Queen Cersei. But the equation changed with Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 ‘The Bells’ when another pair of green eyes became very important – Queen Daenerys Targaryen.
In an unfathomably shocking act of madness, Daenerys Targaryen torched thousands of innocent King’s Landing civilians in Game of Thrones’ penultimate episode, and as such established herself as the most devastating villain of the series ever.
Before Dany’s Mad Queen twist, Cersei was being regarded as the ‘Mad Queen’, mainly for blowing the Sept of Baelor with Wildfire in Season 6, but also for her general ruthlessness and murderous ways. The Lannister Lioness’ green eyes are quite famous and have been referenced multiple times in the books and the show.
Now, Cersei has been on Arya’s kill list since Season 2 and she even came to King’s Landing with the purpose of killing her. Melisandre’s prophecy in Season 3 also included green eyes, so many fans thought Arya will fulfil this target next. That expectation was strengthened when Arya left Winterfell on ‘unfinished business’ in episode 4.
But Sandor Clegane turned Arya back from that path and she went on to survive the burning of the city by just an inch. With Cersei now dead and Arya witnessing Daenerys’ carnage first-hand, it is all too possible that the significance of ‘green eyes’ has changed for Arya.
Interestingly, Daenerys’ eyes were not even supposed to be green. In the books, they are purple, and in keeping with the unusual physiological traits of Valyrian Dragonlords from whom Daenerys is descended. But Emilia Clarke, the actor who plays Daenerys in the show, has green eyes. Although she wore purple contacts in the unaired pilot of Game of Thrones, that idea was discarded in the main show and Clarke stuck to her natural eye colour.
If the show follows the books in terms of major plot points (and Daenerys’ death should be a major plot point) then the Arya-killing-Daenerys-because-of-prophecy scenario is unlikely, because book Daenerys does not even have green eyes. But the show has introduced many plot twists – so this is not totally implausible either.
What do you think of this theory? Will Arya fulfil the ‘green eyes’ prophecy by killing Daenerys or some completely different end awaits the ‘Queen of Ashes’? Tell us in the comments!
Here’s what Arya Stark and her white horse could mean for Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 5 “The Bells” had a lot going for it. So many happenings and so many deaths in just one episode, but it ended with a scene that baffled quite a lot of users. We saw Arya make her way through the destruction in King’s Landing, and find a white horse, whom she rides out of the city. Here’s what it could mean for the show, and the series finale.
White Horses have been used as a symbol in storytelling for a long time now, for both good and bad things. However, fans are speculating that this particular bit might be pointing towards a Bible verse that talks about the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The passage says:
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.”
Arya and death have danced for a long time in the show, and it seems like the show is hinting that Arya will have a final battle with death in the series finale. We saw who brought death in “The Bells” — Daenerys Targaryen, and it feels like could be the second bit of foreshadowing that Arya could be responsible for Daenerys’ death, after the ‘green eyes’ clue.
It also connects to both Arya and Daenerys, as Ned Stark used to ride a white horse, and so did Daenerys, at the beginning of the show. Maybe it’s things coming together for Arya and Daenerys, both of whose fathers were murdered in King’s Landing.
Either that, our we will get our expectations subverted again. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

We might finally get to see Cleganebowl in the next Game Of Thrones episode
Fans have been waiting for the Clegane brothers to clash for so many seasons now that it would be heartbreaking if they passed that up completely. But fret not fandom. There are several hints that Cleganebowl is well and truly coming, and might actually happen Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 5. Read on!
The last time we have seen Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane and Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane come face to face was the Season 7 finale. Hound did not miss the opportunity to remind Mountain that the fight is still on. The Mountain didn’t respond except glowering menacingly but then he hasn’t been very talkative for some time, has he? But that scene was the first time the makers openly acknowledged and gave credence to what up till then have just been theories.
Hints galore in episode 4
The first three episodes of Season 8 had been preoccupied with the Dead. But Sandor Clegane is right back on track with episode 4. He says “there is only one thing that will make me happy” when Sansa talks to him, which is a clear indication to facing his brother. The next time we see the Hound he is striking out alone on a horse. Arya catches up with him and they share some good old warm and fuzzy insults.
Sandor then again says, “I have unfinished business in King’s Landing.” He is not interested in the war; he would have left with Jon Snow’s army then. So why is he going to King’s Landing? Obviously, to face his no. 1 nemesis and elder brother Gregor.
It’s even by supported narrative logic. The Mountain protects Cersei, and it would be necessary to eliminate him before anyone gets to her. Now Arya is obviously going to King’s Landing, and both Cersei and Mountain are on her List. It makes sense for Arya and Hound to team up again to execute their revenge.
What is Cleganebowl theory?
The Cleganebowl theory goes back beyond the show, it started with the book series fans. Sandor and Gregor’s enmity begun back into their childhood, Gregor would bully his little brother endlessly and once pressed his face onto a hot brazier over a small fight about a toy.
The fire burned away one whole side of Sandor’s face, made him a complete cynic, and gave him a deep-seated fear of fire that made him defect from the Battle of Blackwater and would have done the same in Battle of Winterfell except for Arya and Beric. Hound has repeatedly said that he considers killing the Mountain to be his destiny. It was the one thing that kept him standing through all injuries and hardships. He is not the cold-hearted cynic he once was, but the hate still burns.
Right from Season 1, we are told that Sandor has vowed to kill his brother one day and by Season 7 it has almost become a destiny. Even the actors Rory McCann (Hound) and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (Mountain) have been hyping about it off-screen. As Game of Thrones completes its journey in just two more episodes, Cleganebowl seems imminent.
