Bran Stark is going to witness an interesting vision in episode 5, The Door

Bran Stark returned to Game of Thrones after a long gap in season 6 and it was worth the wait. Since the start of this season we have witnessed some interesting visions, be it watching young Ned, Benjen and Lyanna Stark along with young Hodor at Winterfell or the exciting scene at the Tower of Joy where we witnessed the fight between Ned Stark, Howland Reed and their men, and the amazing Ser Arthur Dayne.

We also came to know that Bran can affect the past in his visions as Bran called Ned Stark and Ned immediately turned to see who called him. It might be possible that he might have heard some other sound but that seems unlikely. We might get to see more about his abilities in the upcoming Game of Thrones episode, The Door. If you haven’t yet watched it, take a look at the preview of The Door.

In the preview we see Bran surrounded by Wights and when he turns around, he sees the Night’s King is standing behind him. Now it is interesting to take a look at the place where Bran is standing in the vision.

If you look carefully, you will see lot of stones placed around the tree. It might not seem significant at first but when you take a look at the picture which HBO Go released yesterday, it becomes more interesting.

The Children of the Forest are sitting in front of the same stones where Bran is standing in his vision and the entire area is covered in grass. So does this mean that the area to the North of the Wall wasn’t always covered in snow and are we going to see a vision in which Bran sees the origins of the Children of the Forest? For those who don’t know, before the First Men and the Andals came to Westeros, the Children of the Forest used to live freely throughout Westeros but after the arrival of the Andals, they had to move far North to survive from the Andals.

It might be possible that in the next episode, Bran’s vision takes him to the past where he learns about the initial days of the Children of the Forest and then he witnesses “The Long Night“. Here’s a description of the Long Night by Old Nan.

Thousands of years ago, there came a night that lasted a generation. Kings froze to death in their castles, same as the shepherds in their huts; and women smothered their babies rather than see them starve, and wept, and felt the tears freeze on their cheeks… In that darkness the White Walkers came for the first time. They swept through cities and kingdoms, riding their dead horses, hunting with their packs of pale spiders big as hounds.

Bran might go to the past in his vision and then he decides to stay there for more time and he sees the rise of the White Walkers. However, we know that staying in the vision too long isn’t safe as the Three-Eyed Raven cautioned Bran in the previous episode while saying, “It is beautiful beneath the sea, but if you stay too long, you’ll drown.

In the preview for the next episode we see that Bran is surrounded by the Wights and Meera is desperately trying to wake Bran up but he can’t come out of the vision. Is this what the Three-Eyed Raven meant when he said you will drown?

Also Bran turns around and see’s the Night’s King behind him and if you have watched the Game of Thrones season 6 March Madness trailer, you will realise that in the same scene, the Night’s King also holds Bran’s hand in the vision. Now we don’t know how that is possible but does it mean that even the Night’s King is a Greenseer who joined the side of the Great Other?!

We can only wait for Sunday to arrive, so that we come to know what really happens.

Theories

Balerion, The Black Dread, might not show up in House of The Dragon

Balerion, The Black Dread, might not show up in House of The Dragon

HBO just dropped the teaser trailer for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon, and it broke the internet as soon as it was released. The highly anticipated prequel series has been HBO’s top priority for quite some time, and judging by the reaction of the fans that the teaser received, we can assume that they were right to do so. Though we witnessed several details about the upcoming show from the teaser, and of course the recent leaks, we didn’t get much information about the dragons, hardly any at all. But the teaser did give a slight hint about a certain dragon, Aegon The Conqueror’s famous ride Balerion the Black Dread might not be there in the series.

Balerion, The Black Dread, might not show up in House of The Dragon

In the teaser, we captured a quick glance at what appears to be a dragon skull. Judging by the size of the skull, and the thousands of lit candles in front of it, we can assume it is the skull of Balerion, who was dead by the time of Dance of the Dragons in Fire and Blood novel.

The size of the skull is comparable, if not slightly bigger than the skull we have seen in Game of Thrones, stored in the Red Keep. Another fact that points towards Balerion’s absence is that HBO recently changed the description of House of The Dragon on their official website. Instead of the earlier synopsis that said the timeline of the show being set 300 years prior to Game of Thrones, it has now been changed to 200 years. Balerion died in 94 AC, when Viserys I Targaryen was still young and hadn’t ascended to the throne. Hence it is very unlikely the dreadful beast will make an appearance, given that the series mainly focuses on the civil war that began after Viserys’ death.

Theories

New House of The Dragon leaks might be showing the first look at Daemon Targaryen’s first wife

Published

Rhaenyra Targaryen

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving fast with its production, and we can expect a spring release in 2022. Most of the main characters have been cast, and HBO has officially declared who’s playing who in the much-awaited prequel. With set pictures leaking quite often on the internet, the fans are getting a glimpse of more cast members in action. Recently, another rather unknown member of the House of The Dragon cast came into the limelight, via a leaked picture from the Aldershot set posted by Portal House of The Dragon Brasil.

One of the most common theories about the cast member in question is that she’s playing Prince Daemon Targaryen’s first wife Rhea Royce. This is how the character’s wiki describes her:

In 97 AC, Queen Alysanne Targaryen wed her grandson, Prince Daemon Targaryen, to Lady Rhea Royce, the heir to Runestone. Although the marriage was a fine, rich match, the marriage was not a success. Daemon found the Vale of Arryn little to his liking and grew bored. He soon developed a dislike for his wife, holding no love or affection toward Rhea, referring to her as his bronze bitch, a mocking reference to the ancient armour of the Royces. Rhea likewise had no love for Daemon, and they were soon estranged.”

Well, the armour certainly checks out, but other details about the character are currently under wraps. Who do you think the character from the recent leaks is? Tell us in the comments below!

Theories

Recent leaks from the set of House of The Dragon point at Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon’s wedding celebrations?

Published

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans, as they’re left wondering and speculating who’s who in the new set pictures. Here’s one of the theories we have been pondering about looking at the most recent leaks, the crew of House of The Dragon is gearing up for a tourney being held for Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon’s wedding celebrations.

There are plenty of factors that point towards the above conclusion. One, in the last few days, we have seen a few leaks showing a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon taking a walk together on a beach. Two, we recently had more pictures of Matt Smith as Daemon Targaryen filming on set, one in Royal costume and the newest ones in Targaryen battle gear. Props for his dragon Caraxes were not spotted as well, and since he mostly rides Caraxes for a battle, it seems more than likely that he’s donning the armour for a tourney.

Also, there were pictures of a Targaryen camp being set up, close to the place where Daemon Targaryen was spotted in costume. There are not many soldiers in the view, so it doesn’t seem to be like a preparation for war.

However, one of the flaws to the theory is that in the book, the tourney was held at King’s Landing, while all the shots above have been taken close to a beach. Tell us about your theories in the comments below!
