Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers: Daenerys Targaryen’s tragic fate revealed?

GAME OF THRONES season eight is still pretty far away, yet viewers are desperate to know what’s going to happen to Daenerys Targaryen in the upcoming season, and it looks like they don’t think it’ll end well for the mother of dragons.

The countdown until the next season of Game of Thrones has been going on for quite some time now, and yet, fans are still frantically deliberating over what will happen next.




Season seven ended in August 2017 – over a year ago – and viewers aren’t likely to see the first part of season eight until 2019.

This would be the longest break between seasons in Game of Thrones history, but that hasn’t stopped people from offering up their theories on what’s going to happen next.

It seems as though most fans believe that Daenerys (played by Emilia Clarke) won’t make it all the way through season eight.

In a recent poll conducted by Express.co.uk, viewers had their say on what they think Daenerys’ fate will be, and it doesn’t look good for her since 30 per cent of voters believe that she will die in childbirth.

This could very easily be the case, especially after Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys started a new romantic relationship that could very easily result in a child.

Never mind the fact that they are related, Game of Thrones has a history of characters dying at childbirth; Jon’s mother for instance.

Fans of Daenerys would hope that everything would be done in order to make the birth as safe as possible should she and Jon have a child together, but the Game of Thrones universe isn’t known for its cleanliness.

On the other hand, 27 per cent of voters reckon Danerys will take the Iron Throne, which would be a much more uplifting ending.

But, then things take another turn since 19 per cent of people envisage a future where Jon kills Daenerys.

Something very bad must happen for that eventuality to occur, but Game of Thrones has featured some more shocking twists in the past.




Another 13 per cent of voters think that she’ll be burnt to death by what was her dragon, Viserion, who is now an ice dragon and only seems to answer to the Night King.

This would be a very shocking twist, but not an unexpected one. Viserion being turned into an ice dragon will undoubtedly have huge consequences further down the line, and it could very well result in Daenerys’ death.

Only six per cent of people believe that Cersei Lannister (Lena Heady) will kill her rival for the Iron Throne which is surprising since viewers have seen what she’s capable of, and she wouldn’t hesitate to kill Daenerys should the opportunity arise.

Peter has already spoken about how much his character loves Daenerys, and that fact’s made very clear in the show, so killing her would be an unlikely outcome.

That said, Tyrion did love Shae (Sibel Kekilli), and yet he ended up killing her when he found out about her affair with his father, Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance).




Even though Tyrion has devoted himself completely to Daenerys’ cause, there’s still a slight chance that he might be forced to kill her should she turn out to be like her great-grandfather Aerys II Targaryen, otherwise known as The Mad King.

There’s definitely madness in Deanerys’ family tree, and she could very easily turn out to be just like her great-grandfather should she attain the Iron Throne.

Whatever ends up happening to Daenerys in season eight, viewers will be expecting an epic, dramatic and blood-thirsty final few episodes in which all shall hopefully be revealed.

Game of Thrones season eight returns to HBO next year.
