7. Dance With Dragons
The dragons were always going to play a key role in Game of Thrones’ ending, but now that the Night King has his own, things will only get more explosive. Audiences may have expected to see dragons fighting zombies, but not as many people imagined the possibility of seeing dragons fight other dragons.
As if the Night King wasn’t a big enough threat on his own, now he has Viserion as his trusty companion. Daenerys may be a skilled dragon rider, but it seems like the Night King has a deeper connection with his beast than Daenerys has with her children. Ultimately, it’s gonna take Daenerys riding Drogon and Jon riding Rhaegal (named for Jon’s true father) to take down the Night King. A Dance With Dragons is the name of the fifth novel in the series, but it also references a battle between warring Targaryen factions as they struggled to take the throne. After next season, I’m sure the phrase will take on new meaning as Westeros witnesses the first dragon battle in centuries.
