Game of Thrones Season 8 will answer a lot of questions we have about Game of Thrones and one of the biggest questions I have had since Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 is What is Viserion? A Wight , A White Walker , or something else entirely. What is the Truth about Viserion. In this video I will revisit the video I did after the episode aired and try to nail down the facts Does Viserion have Free Will, Can he turn on the Night King and Is Viserion a White walker or a Wight ?

The only being Night King touched was the baby and that baby was alive,maybe Viserion wasnt yet dead thats why he had to touch him,pass some magic through,if this magic gets broken then Viserion will get back to normal..now some of u will say about the touch between him and Bran,well maybe that was a different one or he just didnt make it in time and only managed to mark him or did it only for the marking,chin chin!

Love this theory But what if.. Bran Actually controlled Viserion?

Sounds like danaerys needs to go easter egg hunting in ashai.
Laizah Galanida (3 days ago)
This theory is interesting. I think there's a probability that though Viserion became the mount of the NK, he still has free will & only responded to the touch of the night king coz of a "rider's bond" like Drogon's & Daenerys's bond which relates with the NK theory of him being a Targaryen coz only a true Targaryen can bond with a dragon.. I bet Rhaegal is Jon's :)

My mind is blown. Honestly you're probably right and I can't believe this is the first time I've seen this theory. I love it.

Mc Montinola (6 days ago)
I think when something becomes a walker they still have free will BUT their mind set changes to just wanting destruction and doing everything to achieve it, just like the night kings original purpose...to destroy.
Sarah Coleman (8 days ago)
A small theme I've found in Game of Thrones is that the dragons seem bonded and naturally trusting to those who are targaryen (even if they don't know it) and allies to them. It kinda seems like they have an extra sense of who is an ally is who is an enemy. This was the thing that made me confused about a dragon being a wight. It was always so stressed that dragons are independent and free thinking so how did Viserion so easily become a slave? I say this theory has some reasoning to it.

Jorge García Origel (17 days ago)
Maybe Viserion wasn't killed by that NK's blow. Could be that the spear just put him to sleep.
Jorge García Origel (17 days ago)
This is a most wonderful video you made GrayArea. Thanks a lot.
Blackfalk (18 days ago)
well yeah since ice is superior to fire (night king kills dragon, _as far as we know_ dragons can't kill white walkers) then this means Great Other is superior to Red God so it's conceivable than an avater of ice can enslave an avatar of fire  greater magic can override lesser magic ps. also Viserion's a wight because at the end of the finale he was starting to decay (walkers dont decay) walkers are made from living things wights are made from dead things
Heli Bobson (19 days ago)
Dragons look at Daenerys as their mother not just because she's a Targaryen but because she brought them to life. Maybe Viserion looks at the NK as his father because he brought him back to life(kind of). In that case Viserion wouldn't be a slave but a kid, a Night Kings kid. That explains whole dragon is not a slave concept and the reason why Viserion choose to stay with NK.

White walker dragon

I read a book once where the demon could conjure a fire so cold it frozen you to the bone. Maybe like freezer burn thats my thoughts
WiseMan CrossNova (24 days ago)
Also not normal fire
WiseMan CrossNova (24 days ago)
But my question for you is. Can a dragon be hurt by fire to begin with? Dead or not?

i thought wights could not swim. how did they put those chains on viserion?
BH (28 days ago)
I wish you used more hard facts, rather than wild opinions. "He can't be a wight cuz he breathes fire. FIRE KILLS WIGHTS" ...welp fire also kills whitewalkers sooo..... there goes that one. "He has dragon glass already inside of him like benjin" (or however you spell it) well shit Benjin isn't a whitewalker either. It's like you were trying to contradict yourself. I agree with your eye observation tho, but damn you made more questions than answers
BH (27 days ago)
+GrayArea where does it say fire can't kill white walkers? Dragon glass is "frozen fire" and valyrian steel is made with a dragon's fire, so where does it say that it is indeed a 100% fact like you claim?

WOW! mind blown! I know you've had this video out for a while, but I just watched it yesterday and OMG!!! the connections you made here are FANTASTIC! I always love your stuff Gray, but this one particularly gives me hope and excitement for how the show can MAYBE redeem itself somewhat. I am a huge BOOK fan, so I get upset with how the show rolls, but I can totally see the saving of Benjen and the creation of Viserion as being of primary impact on the (show) end game. Here's hoping that you hit several nails with this one. Carry on sister and I am a forever GrayArea fan.
fignewton27 (29 days ago)
Too complex, maybe something like that will be for the books. But for the show, no viserion is a white & there will be a epic dragon fight. That simple

Also 3 eggs three targaryans 3 visions....and so on lyannas Starks mothers was the true live and queen beyond the wall...targaryans went beyond the wall as ice men to survive to rule in a future time...and this job snow grandparents are stark aka stars this blue purple eyes like fire eternal cold daming but true...the tree people know the snow knows and the fire hides beneath ice the burns 3times as hot this the North remembers.....New fan your channel Great work and refreshing opinions

I like this girl And I agree kind of agree with your theory Maybe he wants him to have free will, to know what he is doing But I feel like you would have some unspoken respect to the person that brought you back, right?
DreamJuice420 (1 month ago)
I do agree with you, Viserion is absolutely a white walker and a wight. He turned him in the exact same way all other white walkers are turned. But I don’t think he will fully turn against the Night King. From a writing perspective, that would be cheesy abuse of a trope. What I could see is him allowing himself to be killed by Dany, and Dany alone. Wanting to rest, and be free of his curse.

Volcanic glass is very similar to glass made by people. It just needs sand and a lot of heat, and a dragon could certainly provide the heat. Maybe that dragon glass supply is not so odd, and dragons do not need to be made of it. Most areas, even volcanic ones, won't have the right conditions for obsidian to form. So it being rare is fine. Other than that some interesting questions we don't have answers for.
Ida Dudenmanner (1 month ago)
What if The current Night King is the original Aegon Targaryen? And maybe there is more than one Ice Queen bc he had both his sisters as wives? Either way I feel like this is by no means the first dragon the Night King has bonded with.

Does anybody remember what the 3 eyed raven told Brandon..*You will never walk..but you will fly*..have you seen Bran mind control Hodor..how about Bran mind controlling a *partially free will viserion*
Shahmeer Hassan (1 month ago)
The night king rises the dead without touching them ......but when something is alive he has to touch for example the babies as they were alive ......and he touched the dragon so chances are viserion is still alive
Sia Jha (1 month ago)
it wud be unnatural for all three dragons to survive. Viserion was named after viserys. Dany took over Viserys in season 1 and knew they were right in killing him coz he had bad intentions. any one who turns to either wight or wW seems to develop the sense of loyalty to the night king. so i think the remaining two dragons or Dany on Drogon(like how drogo killed Viserys )will kill Viserion, surely sadly but knowing tht its the right thing to do.
bustermk2 (1 month ago)
Everyone is assuming that the Nights King threw an ice spear at Viserion ... but what if it were a shard of dragon glass or even an ice spear tipped with dragon glass.

Viserion can't be a Walker because he is dead and walkers aren't dead

I think that viserion now a combination of ice and fire and hence can only be controlled by a man with the power of ice and fire that's Jon Snow , He would control dragon

BunsnRoses (1 month ago)
The paintings in the cave existed long before dragons and Aegon made a home there unless Jon Snow drew them to fool Daenarys. Winterfell lacked obsidian simply because it wasn't on the path of the lava flow or the Freefolk, First Men and ancient Starks exhausted the resource. What's abundant around hotspring is usually sulfur. Definitely a white walker because of the things mentioned but I don't think he will pull a benjen. Viserion is there to fuck things up.
Rheanon Jasmyne (1 month ago)
I don't think Viserion is either, HE is the first of his kind. After all it's a story of Ice and Fire, Red Fire and Blue Fire.

Max Covfefe (2 months ago)
HOW DRAGONS MAKE DRAGON GLASS: Obsidian is chemically kinda similar to granite in its molten form. Dragon fire can melt rock, such as granite, which when cooled quickly in water becomes obsidian. LOL, Dragons don't "poop" obsidian... I think the idea is that a dragon's lair would (logically) be covered in obsidian after a while. I think they literally "make" obsidian with a combination of... get this... fire and ice!

Just in the first seconds of the video ill debunk it. "a dragon is not a slave" Its not, but viserion isnt a dragon anymore, its a wight.

nico pogi (2 months ago)
hear me out, i think viserion will have a free will because of the "dragons is not a slave", viserion is half dead, and jon snow will be the rider of viserion, tyrion once said, "dragons are intelligent creatures", so viserion being intelligent and have free will, and both viserion and jon are half dead, viserion is intelligent enough to choose its targaryan king, and a king must have a dragon

Dragon glass comes from dragon fire melting stone you silly ass
Max Covfefe (2 months ago)
I left a similar comment about this. Chemically, molten granite can turn to obsidian if it's cooled very quickly. In the show, we've seen a castle or two with melted towers from dragon fire. With that in mind, all it would take to get Dragon Glass would be for a dragon to breathe fire on granite to melt it, and then cool it quickly, literally an act of _ice and fire._

How the f white walker swim in water to retrieve the sunk dragon Night king brought those f-ing chain from ASDA in middle of nowhere ..... That was the most stupid scene with contradicting rules - in cerci meeting Jon snow says that white walker can't swim.... And euron leaves the meeting .... But swimming and chain from Walmart ..... Just a fking joke

Nice theory but D&D aren't the types to get details 100% right. The dragon's eyes aren't like the Wights' eyes just because. it said that Viserion IS an undead dragon and so it IS under the NK's control. It can't be reasoned with anymore than any other undead.
Cailin George (2 months ago)
I think he is a white walker. If the child he turned was still living, that had to mean that the dragon was still alive when the white king turned him or it took a lot more power to make him what he is

Viserion was my favorite and I think you're onto something there. I thought the same thing about the eyes and the way he turned him. If he doesn't turn on the night king HBO is going to have to pull something truly incredible our of their rears to stop him... OR let him win.

I'd love to see Viserion turn on the Night King but I don't think that'll happen. It seems a bit too good to be true, just like the idea of both Jon and Dany surviving to the end of the Game.

If Danaerys is able to win Viserion back, it would be like Viserys (Viserion's namesake) being given a chance to complete his redemptive arc. Like Viserys, circumstances tha the was not equipped to handle made him into a traitor (Viserys, out of desperation and Viserion by being overtaken by the Night King) but deep down, both characters still might have a steadfast loyalty to Danaerys.

You’re 1st reason is very flawed. Whites are killed by fire the same way the living are. Dragons cannot be harmed by there own fire due to their anatomy.

Night King turns dead people into Wights, and live people into White Walkers. I agree that Viserion appears to be a White Walker. But why? He was dead when the NK converted him.

@GrayArea.... What if viserion isn't dead but is being controlled by the night king who is a warg. The ice shard merely broke viserions connection with Danny paving way for him to be controlled by the night king who has the power of warging because he is the three eyed Raven(bran) stuck in his body when he went too far back in time to figure out a way to stop the white walkers and got stuck in the night Kings body and could not return.
