'Game of Thrones' star drops huge hint that there could be more dragons

During last week's episode of Game of Thrones, prospective queen Daenerys Targaryen flew her two remaining dragons directly into a deadly armada. Evidently she forgot about punk rock pirate Euron Greyjoy's fleet, or she is in dire need of getting her eyes checked at Lenscrafters. Whatever the reason, the Westerosi Bam Margera shot three fatal 'Scorpions' into her beloved dragon Rhaegal, and he plummeted into the sea. Congratulations, Drogan! Now you're an only child, and you'll get way more presents on Christmas.

Although the wights failed to kill almost every main character at the Battle of Winterfell, they did succeed in wiping out nearly all the Dothraki horde and half the Unsullied army. With Dany down to just one dragon, that greatly reduces the chances of Team Targaryen defeating Queen Cersei "I'm Not Drunk, You're Drunk" Lannister at King's Landing. However, fans have not given up hope, and speculate that perhaps Dany will accumulate more dragons.

Watch the preview for Game of Thrones season 8, episode 5

As you might recall, the preview for episode five featured a shot of Captain Jack Greyjoy staring at something in the sky with confused horror. Since he's seen dragons before, and killed one himself, it's unlikely he's just looking at Dany and Drogon, right? Now, maybe Drogon is wearing armor, which would be a surprise, or maybe, just maybe, Dany's got more dragons.

"How could Dany get more dragons?" you ask. There's a theory, and it's not just based on Old Nan's tales. Remember when Dany was in Meeren, and Drogon took off, and nobody knew where he went, and Ser Jorah and Tyrion saw him fly over Valyria? Maybe he managed to procreate! If he produced two offspring, then Jon and Tyrion could join Dany as dragonriders, which would support another fan theory, that Tyrion is really a Targaryen, since the Mad King bedded Joanna Lannister. (In the books, anyway.)

On Instagram, Pilou Asbaek, who plays Euron Greyjoy, dropped a hint there could be more dragons. The actor shared a behind-the-scenes pic, writing, "Gone with the wind....!!!? Maybe.... can’t wait for episode 5....there will be light! And death.... and coffee cups... Oreos...?...you might see a dragon...or two...or none...🤷🏼‍♂️☠️"

We'll have to wait and see on Sunday!
