Theories about Tyrion Lannister’s (Peter Dinklage) real identity are now swirling again. After he surprisingly surpassed freeing Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons, Rheagal and Viserion, from the dungeon without being eaten, a lot of #Game of Thrones theorist assumed that The Imp is also a Targaryen.

In George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel series, which the show is based on, Daenerys is set to find two more Targaryens to emulate the three-headed dragon of their house’s sigil. Now that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is confirmed to be a Targaryen, will Tyrion complete the three-headed dragon [VIDEO]?

Dany’s vision of the three-headed dragon

According to IGN, in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel, Daenerys originally wants to imitate the victory of her ancestors, Aegon I Targaryen and his sister/wives Visenya and Rhaenys Targaryen.

Aside from depicting their three-headed dragon sigil, they, too, can ride each of their three dragons. Dany also had a vision of Rhaegar saying, “The dragon has three heads,” which was not seen in the book’s television adaptation, “Game of Thrones.” Instead, she saw her dead husband Khal Drogo and her deceased son Rhaego at the end of the television show’s second season.

With that, there might be a possibility that Tyrion could end up as a Targaryen in the novel series, and not in the television program. As George R.R. Martin is not yet done writing the book’s sixth installment, “The Winds of Winter,” the show’s seventh and eighth seasons are now handled by its executive producers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff. Also, it might not be possible that the showrunners can successfully adapt everything from the novel series to the television.

The Prince that was Promised

Aside from Daenerys’ vision, “A Song of Ice and Fire” also featured Tyrion designing a special saddle fit for Bran Stark’s situation.

He even received “prophetic works” from the Red Priest overseas. But as the television show didn’t tackle everything in the book and “Game of Thrones” #Season 8 only has six episodes, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff should think of a great twist to reveal that Tyrion is actually Dany’s half-brother. With that, the Queen’s hand could be potentially the “Prince who was Promised.” Could he possibly be “Azor Ahai?”

The show’s start of production

In other news, Liam Cunningham, who plays the role of Davos Seaworth, recently confirmed that “Game of Thrones” Season 8 will officially start its production on October 9.

The television show’s cast members will be once again reunited for a table read that will run starting on Sunday, October 9, until Monday, October 10. “Then we start rehearsals, then we start shooting,” he said at the New York Comic Con. #George RR Martin
