What do Daenerys' Undying visions mean?

  • Published on Aug 27, 2016
  • Daenerys has some crazy visions in the House of the Undying. What do they mean for the future and past of Game of Thrones? What are the three fires, mounts and treasons? What was Rhaegar up to with Elia, Aegon and Lyanna?

    2:47 She thinks the house is in Braavos but it isn't. She was told this as a child but it isn't true. So where is it then? Dorne is indeed the most obvious but is it true though?

    Sooo... (spoiler alert for the end of the show)...

    Jon, the man whom Daenerys had “mounted” out of love, betrayed and killed her out of love for his country, prompting Drogon to burn the Iron Throne out of love for his mother.
    Dang it, just when I thought there was something we could all agree to hate!

    Well the show foreshadow was on point albeit disappointing

  • Hatice Kübra Şamiloğlu

    Great content. Really accurate. Although I don't think the dragons will be of service when it comes to killing white walkers in the books. because since GRRM paused to write fire and blood i think the information he gives us there, tells us what can the dragons do. and in fire and blood the good queen alysanne when she visits the wall tries to pass beyond the wall. she fails three times. “Thrice I flew Silverwing high above Castle Black, and thrice I tried to take her north beyond the Wall,” Alysanne wrote to Jaehaerys, “but every time she veered back south again and refused to go. Never before has she refused to take me where I wished to go. I laughed about it when I came down again, so the black brothers would not realize anything was amiss, but it troubled me then and it troubles me still.” (Fire and Blood 263) We do not know why Silverwing didnt obey her. It may be the spells the children of the forest put on the wall or it may be that dragons just dont like cold. Her account in Fire and Blood actually supports this. Therefore, I don't think we will see much of the dragons in the north fighting with the white walkers. I don't actually think that we will ever see a fight in the north between the white walkeers and humans. I think it will be averted with something Bran and the children of the forest does.

    The only satisfying thing about the finale, was the recreation of the house of the undying scene. I knew it was going to happen and it was such an amazing pay off, to have the snow that was falling be ash instead. They recreate the shot perfectly of her reaching for the throne.

    What about the sound in the house of the undying and the lights and cold that scares her? I think that it's a clearly reference to her death or the White Walkers

    What if "a treason for gold" is the "King of Quarth" (in the show he was the tall A.A man) who almost tricked Dany into marrying him for gold and riches (to buy ships to sail to Westeros) only for her to find out that he had no money and was the pawn to distract Dany while Pryt stole her dragons.

    14:45 - My thought is that this is actually Arya. I subscribe to the theory that the house with the red door was in the Sealord's Palace (In Deep Geek has a great video on it). Arya's about 10 in the books and why would Daenerys have two visions of her childhood home? My guess is that Arya running towards the red door will have something to do with her faceless training.

    The "treason for gold" (and the rest of treasons) is a book thing that didn't appear in the series, hence it can't be Doreah who died of sickness in the books in contrast to the show, where she betrayed Dany. It's probably Viserys

    Book to show confirmation of Dany’s prophecy?
    The fires lit by Danny: Life- Khal Drogo (also the birth of her dragons), Death- Jorah, Love- Kings Landing (she wanted to be loved for conquering Westeros, but all she gets is fear)?
    The mounts: Bed- Drogo? (Duty of marriage?), Dread- Hizdahr zo Loraq (as she dreaded making the compromise to appease the peace), Love- Jon Snow
    Treasons: Blood- Drogo’s blood sacrifice to save his life, Gold- Jorah, Love- Jon Snow

    I'm kinda in agreement with the Order of the Green Hand who think that Jon Snow is Ned Starks son by Lady Allyria Dane and Rhaegar and Lyanna did have a son who may or may not be young Griff. Guess we will have to find out which theory is correct. I do love that GRR Martin does seem to put many possibilities in his books. I am going to wait to read them until the Winds of Winter comes out and don't think we will get a Dream of Spring so no satisfying ending.

    LOL what's up with everybody commenting this video predicted the end of the show?? It's a great recap but the Nissa Nissa theory was popular _before_ this video and it's NOT what we had at the end of GOT. What we got at the end of the show is like a stripped down, retarded version of what the Nissa Nissa theory is.

    If GRRM is unable to finish the final 2 books, this is the man who should do it. He truly is gifted; like a Ph.D. in the world of Westeros. I even heard GRRM say one time that one of the fans of Ice&Fire could probably do it. It is not unheard of. There is a woman writing as Agatha Christie now and after Stieg Larsson's untimely death after writing the first 3 Millennium books, there is a Swedish writer, David Lagercrantz, who has written 3 more follow-ups.

    If there is a consideration of a redo , they can start with Dany still in the house of the undying and everything that happens there her visions just that ambiguous at that and how she shapes all her decisions could be based on that alone, did xxx and result was yyy so won't be doing that

      @wwsshockwave the visions are completely different in the books.
      in this video he discusses her visions from clash of clans not game of thrones season 2
      she didn't see drogo or her son( she saw him but he was an adult ) and she didn't touch the iron throne(she saw the iron throne but the mad king was there ordering his men to burn the city)
      as far as i remember
      feel free to correct me
      and that's what I'm talking about
      her death wasn't a treason of love
      and we must not expect from the showrunners to fulfill visions that weren't even mentioned in their show.

    • wwsshockwave
      wwsshockwave 2 months ago

      @Maha Hamdi this prophecy did in the vision in house of undying. She had a vision, when she wanted to touch the iron throne, she heard sonething and she went north to the dead drogo and her dead son. Its obvious that she heard Jon, he called her to go north to help him vs walkers. Jon killed her and sent her to the dead Drogo and her son. Its symbolic that she met Drogo at the north of the wall.

    • Maha Hamdi
      Maha Hamdi 2 months ago +1

      @Gråpus re-watch the video
      he talks about the azor ahai.
      azor ahai killed his wife to win the war against the white walkers
      that's not why jon killed dany
      he killed her because she became the westrosie hitler
      and it's not a treason for love
      "a treason for duty" is more accurate way to describe her death
      actually this prophecy wasn't mentioned in the show
      and it safe to say dan&david didn't care about fulfilling it.

    • Gråpus
      Gråpus 2 months ago
