How Will They Stop The Night King's Dragon? - Game of Thrones Season 8 (End Game Theory)

0 ratings | 70985 views
Welcome back for another Game of Thrones Season 8 End Game Theories Video. Today I am talking about the Night King and his dragon, Viserion. How will they stop the Night King's dragon? We know what it takes to defeat the Wights and the White Walkers, but what will work against Viserion now that he's been raised by the Night King? Dragonglass and Valyrian steel works against Wights and White Walkers, but no one knows what will stop Viserion. In this video, I talk about the pros and cons when using Dragonglass, Valyrian steel, fire, dragon fire, and Weirwood arrows against the Night King's soldiers. Let me know what you think will work.

can you do a video on how the term "warg" and "warging" Specifically, and ONLY refers to a skinchanger who inhabits the body of a wolf.....when it's into any other being, it's not called "warging", it's just called "skinchanging".....don't know why it bother's me, it just does.....like when people, for some reason, still incorrectly call Dany, "Khaleesi" ...as if it were a proper name instead of just a title....you don't see anyone going around calling anyone "king" or "queen"

Whoa, Dragonglass has never been confirmed (and I don't think it has ever been mentioned in the books either) as dragon fire, in fact, the only origin we've been provided thus far in the books is a geological origin as it is in our reality. "The m-maesters think not," Sam stammered. "The maesters say it comes from the fires of the earth. They call it obsidian." - Samwell II - A Storm of Swords "Dragonglass," Osha named it as she sat down beside Luwin, bandagings in hand. "Obsidian," Maester Luwin insisted, holding out his wounded arm. "Forged in the fires of the gods, far below the earth. - Bran VII - A Game of Thrones "Dragonglass." The red woman's laugh was music. "Frozen fire, in the tongue of old Valyria. Small wonder it is anathema to these cold children of the Other." "On Dragonstone, where I had my seat, there is much of this obsidian to be seen in the old tunnels beneath the mountain," the king told Sam. "Chunks of it, boulders, ledges. The great part of it was black, as I recall, but there was some green as well, some red, even purple. I have sent word to Ser Rolland my castellan to begin mining it. I will not hold Dragonstone for very much longer, I fear, but perhaps the Lord of Light shall grant us enough frozen fire to arm ourselves against these creatures, before the castle falls." - Samwell V - A Storm of Swords I can absolutely 100% confirm that these are the only mentions of the origins of dragonglass in all 5 books including the limited material released from the Winds of Winter

what about the 3 giants ???? can they be killed the same way do u think?? the nk does seem unstoppable with his army an dragon an giants
k h (14 hours ago)
I think bran killing the dragon with a bow and arrow would be great But it seems too good to be true .. because bran has a much larger character to play in s8 .. because he is the 3eyed Raven after all... But ofcourse he might be the one suggesting the weapon made out of the holytree 🤔
Dan I watch your YouTube videos and gray area all the time and I can't believe you guys haven't picked up on the drogon foreshadowing at the dragon pit when euron gave drogon that look of intent I believe drogon will be taken from dany by euron they said euron would be a major problem worse than Ramsey even think how tragic it would be if euron steals drogon married cersei and wreaked havoc on westeros!!! How??? Simple when euron usurped yara he was pretty confident that he could marry dany he also knew she had three large dragons how would he even deal with them simple he has dragon binder and when he saw drogon at the dragon pit the look on his face said it all that's why he stepped to dany the way he did when he was leaving he knows he has the power to take her biggest meanest dragon but I also think euron will be the death of drogon and Jon and dany will have to deal with the night king/viserion and euron/drogon and they will have rhaegal it will not be two dragons against one its going to be a three way fight watch what I tell you

Really far fetched but what about a ice dragon? It was said 1 ice dragon could kill 3 fire dragons. The wall was ment to be hiding a giant ice dragon 3 times the size of balaireon the dread....plus others are ment to be roaming wild in the land not explored to the west of westors. And going back to a scene with aria and the actress, when invited to join she said no she wants to see what lies west of westoros
Eric Colona (2 days ago)
Jamie and Cersi have to die at the same time, but in different locations. I don't thing Valerian steel can kill a dragon for the same reason as Dragon Glass, their magic comes from Dragonfire which cannot harm a dragon. Arrows from a Weirwood tree makes sense, but from one of those machines that Kybern built, not from a bow.

Jamie was trying to kill Dany not the drogon if u remember the scene,he was attacking danaerys drogon saved her.there is noway he can kill viserion.

Isn't valerian steel also a weapon used agains the undead ? I thought sam discovered that ? Could that kill a dragon ?! I expected that to be mentioned ...

Kill a Dragon? Drag the Enterprise E from the Milky Way Galaxy couple of Terra Watts of High energy that can literally phase stuff out of existence no dragons LOL.
OlgaQLD (5 days ago)
I think they should have Viserion turn on the night King... I think Danereys's hold on him is stronger, she is his mother... she was reborn in the fire that birthed the dragons, I would rather see a twist like this than have one of the other dragons or Danereys kill him.
Khaleesi Mendes (5 days ago)
white dragon or not i still love viserion,his death had me in tears.
Autumn Oaks Farm (5 days ago)
Night King when raising wights does not need to touch them. When changing babies he touched them to turn them and while the dragon was dead he touched the dragon to raise it. Interesting difference. I think he can die as normal wights however you have to get past his defenses covered here which is the problem.
Jane Hale (5 days ago)
Vaserion was brought down by a spear so why would he not be able to again? Doesn't need to be through the eye as it wasn't last time. I agree that Valerian steel is the ideal weapon of choice if you can get close enough or have a spear made of it. Perhaps otherwise Arya could get close enough if the dragon is on the ground and being distracted and stab him in the eye with her dagger
andrew marsh (6 days ago)
I honesty feel that Bran will use this dragon,as he warps into the night king or dragon itself I think that would be a great twist. The men ,have to get upper hand against the dead somehow as the dead always seem to be a step ahead. Bran will change this.
I want to know more about the dragon glass horn found with the dragon glass on the Fist of the first men 👏🏼 There is a horn like it in the books!!! 🧐 controls dragons 🐉
Also - the undead polar bear didn’t die from fire. It took a dragon glass dagger ??? So perhaps it will take valerian steel or dragon glass
Trapp King (6 days ago)
What if Qyburn makes some kind of cure and brings back Viserion to life.
kenneth waterson (6 days ago)
I think dragon gone will show the one that was turned down to the point that the one was turned will land and Jame then kill the one that was turned
Paul Davis (7 days ago)
I imagine that Viserion will last a few episodes at least. There has to be some hint of 'how are they going to stop him?' If he dies in the first episode then what was the point of the Night King resurrecting Viserion? There will be an epic conclusion to this storyline. That is for sure.
Andy Hoffmann (7 days ago)
Wasn't Jaime charging Dani?? I don't think he was that crazy
Daniel Belmiro (7 days ago)
That's right, wrights can be damaged, and for a dragon that's dangerous because dragons need wings in a good condition to fly, even though they are magic, i think they need their wings to fly. And Viserion's wings i think are already a bit damaged. I don't think viserion is a white walker because the fire wouldn't work properly since the white walkers repel fire.
Daniel Belmiro (7 days ago)
That's crazy, they made us hate Jaime, and then like him only to kill him. at the end.
Talking Thrones (7 days ago)
That's how they get us. Up and down rollercoaster.
vetri murasu (7 days ago)
In my opinion, Night king never uses Viserion to kill people, since the burnt people can't be turned into wights. So he might use the dragon only as siege weapon to destroy castles like he broke-down the wall. I personally believe that Jon is going to ride Rhaegal to kill Viserion. Similar to the "Dance of the Dragons", Jon might charge into the night king with his longclaw, like Daemon Targaryen charged into Aemond Targaryen from Caraxes to Vhagar.
Ahmad (7 days ago)
Jaime in the attack of the loot train: I'd say he was trying to kill Dany, not the dragon.

Drogon will bite Viseryon's wings and his neck and force him to land. Jon will fight the night king and the two dragons will unleash fire at each other. Through the fire Daenerys will walk and kill Viseryon by sword/knife while tears will run in her eyes.Drogon and Danny will kill Viseryon together.'a dragon is not a slave'
frank doolittle (8 days ago)
Thinking outside the box. Dani turns him back from the NK

Jamie's legacy will be that he saves John Snow or Daenarys. He will no longer be known as the king slayer but as the King's/Queen's savior.

End Game Theory. I still think Dany falls during the battle for Winterfell, and Jon brings her back with dragon glass. A bran warg will assist the night king dragon's death. Jon was in King's Landing negotiating surrender and fails/dies. Dany takes King's Landing with an undead dragon, as one falls during battle, and finally sees the throne she can no longer have due to winter inevitably ending. Tyrion finishes the show King with Sansa his Queen.

Viserion would be able to kill The Night King. Ice Spear for viserion
Goo442 (8 days ago)
Great analysis as usual!!! I like the theories!!! I think it might be Bran as you said!! not only is it him trying to shoot arrows in his visions...But if you remember when he first becomes cripple...Bran is speaking to Maester Luwin about never being able to shoot a bow again as they are watching Theon practice..... Maester Luwin says that Dothraki boys learn to shoot an arrow from atop horseback as children, why should he. which garners a smile from Bran. with the amount of foreshadowing in this show, (even in that scene, later to save bran from osha and the willings, Theon has to shoot an arrow exactly how he was practicing or he would have hit Bran) I don't think it a coincidence!!! what y'all think?

I think Jamie Lannister might not be the one to kill the dragon if he has to die in the process. Because in my opinion, he will be the one to fulfill the valonqar prophecy and it will likely happen after the night king is defeated

I believe that Drogon will kill Viserion but i don't know how!!!Is his fire stronger than Viserion's???
Luke Gilstrap (8 days ago)
If I had to guess, I'd say the dragon is more a wight, than a WW. From all indication, WW and the NK were all created from living beings, while the wights were all raised from the dead. It still doesn't answer the question as to whether or not fire can kill him though.
Tone James (8 days ago)
Jaime didn’t want to kill the dragon, he tried to kill Dany. Drogon protected her, and Brawn saved Jaime. Right?

Is it possible that Visarion won't be killed? A Dragon has three heads and if Jon becomes the new "Night King of the North!" then certain things may match up.

billybob lillybob (9 days ago)
Not sure why you believe Jamie was nearly successful killing Drogon since he was aiming for Danny. It wasn't even close really. Also, the WW and NK have never really shown much emotionally. One showed some surprise when Aegon blocked his attack with Longclaw at Hardhome. The NK showed simple acknowledgement at watching that combat; as much as emotion could be involved there. Lastly, the NK walked through "dragon fire" but really it was burning undead rather than actually dragon fire. The NK has never been hit with direct dragon fire. As far as Viserion, in the time between his raising by the NK and taking that portion of the Wall down, his wings have developed many holes in them. I can't imagine he'd be able to fly if they got much worse. There is no indication that the undead heal ever so those holes will only get worse from use. He may be grounded whether planned or not.

Jen Vincur (9 days ago)
I said this last year- the dragons will die the way their namesakes did. After Drogon got hit with the huge arrow, I thought it was dipped in poison. That it would take a couple of days for it to effect him. But I really thought that. It’s still possible though. And it would be kind of poetic if the dragons died in certain ways. I hope they don’t die though, obviously. But it’s something I could see the writers do.

Love, love, love this channel. What I'm worried about is how DD are going to tie up all these loose ends in just six episodes. Yes, the episodes are longer but they had more episodes last season with less resolutions and yet everything felt rushed. I hated that.
Joe Ann Todd (8 days ago)
I think wildfire might work to kill Viserion. If the Northerners get there hands on some, or if the Night King goes to Kings Landing, Qyburn might figure out a way for a ballista to deliver a container of wildfire, and if it hits Viserion- dead - undead dragon. There is also the issue of the different colored obsidian. It could have different properties.

When did Jaime try and kill drogon? If you’re referring to his run with the spear, it was Daenerys he was going for, not drogon.. 🤪
One With No Name (10 days ago)
Remember way back in season 3 when Dany was purchasing the Unsullied from Kraznys mo Nakloz? What was it that Dany said to Kraznys? “ A dragon is not a slave.” As the wights seem to be slaves will Viseryon react differently upon seeing his mother & siblings? Probably not.....
Michael Grant (10 days ago)

What about the theory that Viserion could be resurrected by the priests of R’hllor with Melisandre which would send the night king down to the ground for Jon to fight him one on one
simon instone (10 days ago)
Could Bran warg into it and make it do some kind of kamikaze thing? That's my guess anyway, the three eyed raven did say he was going to fly.
It really does sound like multiple people created their own White Walkers. Children of forest who understood magic. Another who didn't understand what they were doing. They couldn't control it. People been calling me crazy when i bring that idea up. The prince that was promised was part of the pact. White walker is that prince, not a savior, but a weapon promised to help win a desperate war But I admit it's very unlikely and weak hypothesis
Anna Panag (10 days ago)
What if Viseryon's frozen fire is the only thing that can kill the Night King, in the way it s the only thing that can break down the wall? What if Dany or Jon can still control Viseryon besides the fact he is raised by the Night King - in a Dragon is not a slave fashion?
Rob Saxe (10 days ago)
When the night king raises wights, he raises his arms. When he creates white walkers, he touches them. He touched viserion so my guess would be the dragon is a white walker beast. Valarian steel or dragon glass is my guess.

Ronald Ferrell (10 days ago)
Good theory. I'm sticking with my theory Gendry will make Ice into a spear and bring him down. I know Ice is split right now, but both parts will be in WF. Valyrian steel (Fire) and the ancestral sword of the Starks (Ice). Not sure who is shooting the ballista, but maybe it's Jaime?
Porn Star (10 days ago)
drogon is much bigger than the other 2 dragons as he was not locked up . they say the dragons of old that were tied down grew no bigger than dogs so drogon has got his size as a plus against visarion who is smaller and should win the fight
Quentin Michel (10 days ago)
Have to agree with others that your analysis is incorrect... Jaime was aiming for Dany, not Drogon.
Susan Downs (10 days ago)
personally, I hope when the three dragons are around each other again, somehow the night king loses mind control over (not) his dragon & all three wind up fighting together against the night king. I know, wishful thinking.

I don't know how viserys will die but I do think Jamie was trying to kill Daenerys when he was going at her and drogon and I think fire can hurt the night King and his white walkers that's why it gets smaller around them they're using magical power to get it out of their way because he can hurt them but that's just my guess tell. Now if drogon hits the night king with a direct fire attack and he emerges unscathed then I will think fire can't hurt him and that might also make me think he might have some Targaryen in him
thelasonj (10 days ago)
Love your videos and thoughts. I think it would be really cool if Arya killed the Viserion. In the eye, as you suggested in your video. Remember last season when she was telling Sansa that Ned encouraged her when Arya was practicing target? Isn't she a good archer?
Cale Purdy (10 days ago)
Khal Drogo killing Viserys in season 1 is a foreshadowing of Drogon killing Viserion in the end.
THE OTHERGUY (10 days ago)
I don't think Jamie the will make that charge at Viserion, I think it will be Viserion's mother. When Jamie charged at Dany and Drogon, he almost got burnt alive. So if anyone is going to approach a dragon, it has to be someone who can't be burnt.

Dude! Dany's brother was killed by gold......
callumnik117 (10 days ago)
Yeah but you were saying it was Drogo, and therefore maybe Drogon will kill Viserion. I'm just saying what if the gold symbolizes Lannister and Drogo was just the vehicle for the molten gold. Just another angle I noticed. Cersei or Tyrion killing Viserion by blowing up Kings Landing with him/her still inside the city would be death by a kind of "molten gold". But maybe I'm pushing it a bit haha Calling it now though, just in case.
