Winter is coming to the seven kingdoms. While different packs in the great game are too occupied defending their throne or trying to claim what is rightfully theirs, White Walkers pose a great threat to all of their existence. People who already saw them and know how powerful they are, it is very terrifying and they know that the living cannot withstand the winter that they will bring.

Who can truly save the realm is really a big deal for the seven kingdoms. Fortunately, according to the book, this isn't the first time the White Walkers are noted to attack the seven kingdoms. 8,000 years ago, the legendary Westerosi warrior Azor Ahai defeated the White Walkers and is rumored to be reincarnated in the present among the main characters - or maybe not.

Speculations around the identity of the reincarnation of Azor Ahai have reached great heights. Fan theories are all over the place and major guesses point towards Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow.

Will it be Daenerys Targaryen?

Azor Ahai's reincarnation as one of the lead characters relates so much to how powerful Daenerys Targaryen is (Emilia Clarke), in the current time. She is natural-born Targaryen and is proven to be unburnt after so many fire scenes she's been in.

Azor Ahai is also called "The Prince who was Promised" and is said to possess a sword called the Lightbringer. This sword is supposedly wielded from the heart of his wife. Although Daenerys is a Queen and not a prince she doesn't have a sword, but fans are not taking her off the list.

Nevertheless, Daenerys has dragons, which may be her "Lightbringer" after all.

We can recall that back in the earlier seasons these dragons cost the life of Daenery's special someone which could be equivalent to the Lightbringer being forged with the loving heart of Azor Ahai's wife. However, we can't deny how powerful she is now and that her dragons might save the realm once and for all.

Will it be Jon Snow?

While it has been proven from the last season that Jon Snow is really a son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, making him a Targaryen, it makes him a great candidate for Azor Ahai's reincarnation. They have many similarities and as the case maybe, this season might just end up pointing to Jon Snow or Jaehaerys Targaryen being Azor Ahai.

Another thing is his revival from the dead, which is absolutely a new thing in the GOT series where a character dies and rises from the dead (except White walkers of course). However, Jon Snow's character defied this implied rule and rose back from the dead. This gave fans a major hint that he could be "The Prince who was Promised."

So, going back to the question whether Azor Ahai will be revealed this season or not, the answer is definitely "yes." As to who among the characters will it be, well fans cannot wait to confirm or deny each of their theories.
