OMG, VISERION DIED! OMG, AN ICE DRAGON!
OMG, THE WALL FELL! OMG, IS TORMUND OKAY!
OMG! OMG! OMG!
Oh, Seven Hells. Can everyone please just calm? The ice dragon situation has already been handled. Now take a breath and have a Pinot Grigio for fuck’s sake.
If you’re wondering what I’m even talking about, let’s back track to season one together. It was a time of more Starks, no dragons, and an asshole named Viserys Targaryen. Ah, Viserys Targaryen, the disgusting piece of shit brother of Daenerys. There was very little to like about this skinny, blonde dude. There was the odd fondling of Daenerys, which, admittedly, was not too odd for Targaryen standards. There was also that adorable time Viserys pretty much sold Daenerys to Khal Drogo as a sex slave. Daenerys was like, ‘Hm, I don’t know about this.’ And then Viserys literally said he’d let a herd of Dothraki horses rape her if it got him the throne. I am into that level of ambition, but definitely not the horse rape.
Long story short, Viserys mostly just seemed like the type of guy who would subtly hold the back of your head and force too much of his dick in your mouth during a blow job.
The dynamic between the siblings got worse as Daenerys grew more powerful. Being that Daenerys embraced the Dothraki culture, she was beloved by the Dothraki people as their Khaleesi. Kahl Drogo also grew to love Daenerys because she did the backwards cowgirl for him. On top of that, Daenerys’ pregnancy, because she was apparently carrying the stallion who would mount the world, really solidified both the Dothraki and Khal Drogo’s allegiance to her.
In a tense showdown, Viserys threatened to cut out Daenerys’ child from her womb. The thing Viserys failed to realize was that in threatening Dany’s womb, he was threatening Khal Drogo as well, which is a HUGE no-no. It was at this point that Khal Drogo poured molten gold on Viserys’ head, which I still count as one of the grossest deaths to date.
When Viserys died, he wasn’t all that missed. In fact, almost everyone was glad to say goodbye to Viserys and threats of horse rape. Though, I do have to give him props for rocking a textured lob YEARS before it was in style.
What does this even have to do with the ice dragon? Possibly everything, people!
Daenerys named her dragons Drogon after Khal Drogo, Viserion after Viserys, and Rhaegal after Rhaegar, her older brother whom she never met.
If we look to the men the dragons were named after for foreshadowing, there certainly is some. For example, Drogon is the largest, most destructive dragon, much like how Khal Drogo’s skill level on the battlefield was undoubtedly far superior to that of Viserys or Rhaegar. Likewise, Viserion is now an ice dragon and perhaps the biggest threat to life in Westeros. Viserion, once good, is now a villain, much like Viserys’ own descent into villainy on the show.
On this train of thought, one could reason Drogon may kill Viserion through his fire power, much like how Khal Drogo killed Viserys using fire power. That said, it’s also likely Drogon is the only living thing that can actually kill Viserion. It seems that fire kills White Walkers, so both Rhaegal and Drogon should be able to kill Viserion. Though, Rhaegal’s flame may go head-to-head with Viserion’s ice breath, y’know like that one X-Men scene. Being that both these dragons seem to be about the same size, it’s not obvious who would come out on top in this battle. Drogon, on the other hand, is bigger than Viserion, meaning he could likely beat him in a battle. BOOM, just like Khal Drogo roasted Viserys.
Of course, there are a few other options. Making a dragonglass arrow and using Qyburn’s machine may yield some effective results. However, Cersei doesn’t seem to be willing to lend out that contraption. Another option is someone actually taking down the Night King, as it seems that all the White Walkers he’s brought to life would die, thus killing Viserion.
Of these how-to-kill-the-ice-dragon options, I would love to see Drogon take down Viserion. It would not only be entertaining as hell, but it would also have an emotional core. I mean, dragon brother vs. dragon brother. COME ON! We need this. And then Daenerys could drop her ‘Fire cannot kill a dragon’ line that is factually wrong, as fire can kill both a dragon and a Targaryen. But whatever, still a good line.
Whether it’s Drogon, dragonglass or the death of the Night King that takes Viserion down, it’s likely the ice dragon will bring about much carnage before we see his death, to which I’m obviously looking forward. Carnage and cocks, that’s what Game of Thrones is all about.
