Of course this appears to be Daenerys Targaryen’s birthright. Everything she’s done since first whispering in Khal Drogo’s ear about crossing the Narrow Sea has brought her closer to lớn this moment of reclaiming her heritage with fire & blood. But now that it’s so close, fire is a scarce thing as the Dead move among us. Daenerys has elected instead to throw in her lot with the North in one last ditch effort against the trắng Walkers.

With sellswords coming from Essos khổng lồ replenish her ranks, could Cersei pull off the implausible and actually keep the Iron Throne? We sure hope not!

This is our first look at Sansa in her armored dress. It will be strange if Sansa is forced lớn pick up a sword, but we are in strange và dire times with the trắng Walkers descending on Winterfell. There is a good chance that this new chainmail will be christened with red before the Battle for the Dawn is over, although hopefully not by Sansa’s.
