Game of Thrones fans are torn over the potential Jon Snow sequel starring Kit Harington and already have one huge demand – bring back Daenerys Targaryen.
The final season of the fantasy epic was almost universally panned, in part to the flat, needless and nonsensical demise of Daenerys (played by Emilia Clarke), whose uncharacteristic rampage killing thousands of innocent people eventually lead to her death.
Jon Snow took it upon himself to kill his lover and auntie when it became clear she was out of control.
Well, it didn’t work for many fans, to put it lightly, and now the overriding reaction to a Jon Snow prequel is: fix the mess that was Daenerys’ death.
The fandom has spoken and is demanding the Mother of Dragon’s resurrection and shared some plausible theories that could actually see her return.
One fan speculated Dany’s dragon Drogon has ‘powerful healing properties’ in tears that bring her back to life when he sobs over her corpse.
Another common theory suggests Dragon takes Volantis to be resurrected by the Red Priestess.
Ahead of any Jon Snow sequel, however, prequel House of The Dragon is about to come crashing to the summer, following the Targaryen family set 200 years before the events in Game of Thrones, and starring Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, Olivia Cooke and Paddy Considine.
While it feels unlikely Clarke will return as Daenerys, she has given the spin-off exploring her character’s family tree her full approval.
‘Good luck to them is what I would say. I really mean that,’ she the The Hollywood Reporter.
House of The Dragon will be available to stream on HBO and Sky from August 21.
