Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers: Daenerys Targaryen’s to die in child birth? | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

Game of Thrones will end in 2019 with season eight and fans are desperate to know what will happen to the characters they’ve spent so much time with over the years.

One of those beloved characters is Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke), who also goes by the names of Khaleesi, Mhysa, Mother of Dragons, and The Dragon Queen.

She’s shown incredible leadership qualities throughout eight seasons and is looking like one of the most likely characters to end up on the Iron Throne.

Her odds were significantly improved when Jon Snow (Kit Harington) bent the knee to her.

Little does he know that he has arguably a more substantial claim to the throne, yet Jon has proven himself to be an incredibly loyal character in the show.

That said, Daenerys’ time on the show could all end in tragedy, and one fan has come up with a rather interesting theory on how her journey will come to its conclusion in season eight.

“I've only just become aware that Daenerys’ mother died in childbirth which means that the mothers of all three primary characters died giving birth to them,” wrote Subtleiaint on Reddit.

“I can see the narrative reason for each death (Jon is the secret heir, Tywin Lannister needs a reason to hate Tyrion, and Daenerys is supposed to be an orphan growing up in a foreign land) but it seems fairly lazy to kill off all three mothers the same way (especially for Daenerys, it would be easy to write that her mother had been killed in Robert's rebellion).

“So was this a deliberate choice and, if so, for what reason?

“Is it to give the characters something to bond over or could it be something significant to the plot?”

This post on Reddit sparked a frenzy of replies and theories, yet there was one that caught the eye.

“In my opinion, the whole three Targaryen (Jon, Daenerys & Tyrion) mothers dying at birth is a foreshadowing that the bittersweet ending we will get is, Daenerys can have children and gives birth to Jon’s child,” WillMarhshall1147 commented.

This was when the user dropped the bombshell that Daenerys could die giving birth to Jon’s baby.

“However, she dies as a result of it. Either Jon will be left with a child who’s not a basted but no mother," they wrote.

“Or he dies in battle too so the “heir” will be an orphan.... raised by Uncle Tyrion!”

This theory is a fascinating one since it would mean the current crop of Game of Thrones characters end up passing the torch to the next generation.

There’s already been reports of a huge battle sequence in season eight, which could see a lot of characters die at the hands of the White Walkers.

It only seems natural that Jon and Daenerys’ child is left to pick up the pieces after his or her parents die in the fight to rid Westeros of tyrannical rulers and dangerous ice zombies.

Another theory which has been bandied about is that the show will end with a group of Night’s Watchmen telling tales of Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and the White Walkers around a campfire beyond the wall, only for them to be attacked by a group of White Walkers.

Game of Thrones season 8 will return to HBO and Sky Atlantic in 2019. Seasons 1-7 are currently streaming on NOW TV.
