Game of Thrones” has revealed Season 7 finale’s episode title: “The Dragon and The Wolf.” The announcement sent the show’s fans into excitement for the upcoming finale. There were two episodes in the previous seasons whose titles had the same style as now.

The Wolf and the Lion”, the fifth episode of Season 1, was when Ned Stark began investigating the death of Jon Arryn and Robert Baratheon’s bastard children. Also in the episode, Ned crossed swords against Jaime Lannister because of Catelyn’s arrest of Tyrion.

Another episode was “The Lion and The Rose”, the second episode of Season 4.

Joffrey and Margaery were married, and Joffrey died afterward. If these two episodes are any guide for “The Dragon and the Wolf”, fans can expect a great finale coming. But everyone is intrigued by the characters or the meaning behind the episode’s title.

Jon and Daenerys

Based on the sigils of their Houses – Stark and Targaryen, it is automatic to think that the episode’s title refers to Jon and Daenerys. Also, they are called the White Wolf and the Mother of Dragons. But this guess is heightened by how much closer the two have gotten in “Beyond the Wall.”

Daenerys has given her word that she will help Jon defeat the Night King and his army. Jon has finally pledged his allegiance to her – calling her “My Queen.” Many fans think that their relationship will reach a new level in the season finale.

Rhaegar and Lyanna

Jon and Daenerys are not the only dragon and wolf that has a relationship on the show. The title could also refer to Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, a dragon and a wolf in a secret relationship that caused a great chain of events.

Bran Stark already knows that Rhaegar and Lyanna are Jon’s true parents through one of his visions. It is possible that Bran will discover more about their relationship through another vision. Meanwhile, Gilly has read that Rhaegar’s first marriage (to Elia Martell) was annulled to secretly marry another woman (probably Lyanna), but no one knew the importance of the detail.

Jon Snow

Being the legitimate son of Rhaegar and Lyanna, Jon is half-Targaryen and half-Stark. This makes him half-dragon and half-wolf. No one, except for Bran, knows of Jon’s true parentage, everyone still thinks that he is the bastard son of Ned Stark. Will there be another sign to show his Targaryen blood, like when he pet Drogon in “Eastwatch.”


Like “The Wolf and the Lion” and “The Lion and the Rose”, something bad could happen in “The Dragon and the Wolf”. For the first time since the pilot episode of “Game of Thrones”, the biggest characters are coming together at the Dragonpit.

It is possible that Cersei has laid a trap at the Dragonpit beforehand. Similar to what she did to the Great Sept of Baelor, she will wipe out her enemies with one single blow.

The only solution to this is to watch “The Dragon and the Wolf” on August 27 on HBO.
