Although the Greyjoy Sea Battle took all the glory as the highlight of the episode, "Game of Thrones" Season 7 Episode 2 featured other memorable moments as well and there is one scene in particular that I wanted to talk about in this article. It is the scene that took place in Dragonstone throne room where Daenerys Targaryen and Melisandre of Asshai first met.

The scene recap

After the conversation that brings Varys out in a cold sweat, Grey Worm informs the Dragon Queen that the Red Priestess is waiting for her. Then, Daenerys' party moves into the throne room for a meeting with Melisandre of Asshai.

In that conversation, the Red Priestess, cryptic as always, brings up the issue of the army of the dead and goes on to suggest that Daenerys has a role to play in that war, just like Jon Snow does. While speaking in Valyrian, she talks about the "Prince That Was Promised" prophecy. And we soon realize that this prophetic figure could also be a woman. From that conversation alone, fans concluded that Daenerys could easily pass as the hero from the prophecy. But what if her role is something else?

What role could Daenerys have in the battle against the dead?

The Prince That Was Promised, also referred as Azor Ahai is a legendary figure that ended the long night by defeating the army of the dead.

And according to prophecy, this hero will be born again to defeat the dead once more. Although Daenerys could easily pass as Azor Ahai reborn, I think it is more likely that she will fulfill the role of Nissa Nissa.

According to the "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series, Nissa Nissa was the wife of Azor Ahai - the one he needed to kill to forge the Lightbringer, the legendary sword that will defeat the darkness.

What does it all mean?

We all know that Jon Snow and Daenerys will be meeting each other in the next "Game of Thrones" episode and it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibilities that they fall in love and marry each other.

It's no secret that history often repeats itself in the universe George R. R. Martin has created. The long night has come again, and our heroes must do their best to defeat the Night King's army.

With Jon Snow being the most likely candidate for Azor Ahai, Daenerys could only be his Nissa Nissa.

If this theory is to be believed, that would be a poetic ending of Daenerys' storyline, ultimately sacrificing herself to save humankind. Not to mention the fact that it would fit quite nicely in the whole bittersweet ending thing George R. R. Martin has been teasing.
