Did the scene with Jon Snow and Jaime Lannister from the first season foreshadow Dany’s death at the hands of Jon?
Taking it wayyy back to season 1.
A scene from the second episode of Game of Thrones could have majorly foreshadowed how the show will end.
Spoilers ahead! Don’t even think about reading further if you haven’t watched last week’s episode.
This theory has a few twists and turns, so hang in there. In last week’s episode, there were wildfire explosions in at least two different scenes. Quick reminder, wildfire was Dany’s dad Aerys Targaryen’s favorite weapon, and it’s a known fact he hid some of it within the city.
While there was some speculation that Cersei hid more wildfire in the city, it’s also possible Dany was just setting fire to the wildfire her dad left behind. Very poetic.
For context, when Jaime told Brienne about why he actually killed the Mad King in season 3, he said part of it was because he realized how scary it was to have a leader who loved to watch people burn.
“Have you heard of wildfire? The Mad King was obsessed with it. He loved to watch people burn, the way their skin blackened and blistered and melted off their bones. He burned lords he didn’t like. He burned Hands who disobeyed him. He burned anyone who was against him. Before long, half the country was against him. Aerys saw traitors everywhere. So he had his pyromancers place caches of wildfire all over the city. Beneath the Sept of Baelor and the slums of Flea Bottom.”
