WARNING: This article contains potential spoilers from season 7 of Game of Thrones.
If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, then you know how integral Daenerys’ dragons are to the whole plot. Back in Qarth at the House of the Undying, she had a handful of visions. In one of these visions, a man we think to be Rhaegar Targaryen, her older brother, states, “The dragon has three heads.” Just like the Targaryen sigil.
Fans went on to presume that this meant each of Daenerys’ dragons would get a rider. Dany has already started riding Drogon so that leaves Viserion and Rhaegal. Top fan theory contenders to ride these two have for the longest time been Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow. But a recent reddit leak that outlines the entire plot for season 7 might prove otherwise.
The leak came from a popular Redditor, awayforthelads, and with his almost perfect prediction of season 6, we might have enough reason to believe this one. So the reddit leak states that in episode 6 of season 7, there’s going to be a battle between Jon Snow, his men and the white walkers. Much like the finale from season 6, Jon is going to find himself in quite a pickle, even close to death until Dany swoops in to save the day with all her dragons.
Viserion, one of Dany’s dragons doesn’t escape the battle unscathed though, as the Night King finds a way to trap and kill him. He then uses his white walker magic to bring the dead dragon back to life and makes Viserion his very own zombie mount.
If this leak is true, then Viserion will get his rider, the Night King, in the coming season. It’s not what any of us had hoped for but this is Game of Thrones, things tend to go the way we don’t want them to. And if White Walkers on horses wasn’t an already big enough threat to Westeros, imagine the destruction they’ll bring with their own ‘ice’ breathing dragon.
