Remember that vision Daenerys had in the House of the Undying in Season 2? (The show vision, not the book ones which are completely different) She walks in the Throne room at the Red Keep in Winter, which appears to have been burnt down. Whether Cersei triggers another Wildfire explosion, or Dany’s dragons do it (more likely as previously discussed) is yet to be revealed. As she walks towards the throne, she tends her hand towards it, almost reaching it, but never touching it, just before being distracted by the sound of her captured baby dragons.
Many speculations point towards the symbolism of that small scene where she will get close to the throne, but will never grasp it, never sit on it, never rule the Seven Kingdoms which she has been set on taking back since the entire story started.
11. Kings Landing On Fire
The most obvious since this vision has already been foreshadowed twice before in the show. Bran saw this vision on the Ironwood Tree in Season 3 and 6, and Daenerys saw a burnt throne room during her visions at the House of the Undying (The show version – they are VERY different in the books). So here are the three hints to consider this (almost too obvious) plot:
- A vision of a Dragon flying over Kings Landing (Bran)
- A vision of a burnt Throne Room in Winter (Daenerys)
- Confirmed depositories of Wildfire scattered all across the capital, the one under the Sept of Baelor having been used by the new Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, Cersei Lannister to wipe out her enemies.
Daenerys’ Dragon(s) might be the catalyst that triggers more Wildfire, particularly the ones under the Red Keep, and make the entire city burn to the ground. Should this happen, it might actually change the angle where Daenerys is the villain invader, burning the city with her dragons and pillaging it with her armies of Dothraki and Unsullied.
