Game of Thrones Season 7 ended with a lot of cliffhangers, and we are hoping to get answers as soon as Season 8 premieres in 2018 or possibly in 2019. During the finale, the Night King and the already ice dragon Viserion successfully destroyed one massive barrier of The Wall at Eastwatch by the Sea.

The King of the Dead then crossed into Westeros, and the gods know the wrath he can bring to the entire continent. The army of the dead was also seen marching towards the destroyed barrier with the undead giant Wildlings. Unfortunately, we will only learn as to where the Night King is going once the upcoming installment premieres, but there is one solid theory that might answer our questions.

Where is the Night King heading to?

Over on Reddit, a “Game of Thrones” fan named @twerkmileyyy suggests that the Night King is heading straight to the Gods Eye, the mysterious immense lake in the middle of the Riverlands. According to the Redditor, the King of the Dead might have been trying to get to the mysterious lake for a long time but has not been able to do so. Apparently, he can do it this time now that he has the undead dragon that can help him destroy every barrier that will get in his way.

The Isle of Faces

The Isle of Faces located in the heart of the Gods Eye is where the Children of the Forest and the First Men made a treaty thousands of years ago. The mysterious non-human race or known as the Children were the first inhabitants of Westeros.

They are said to have been on the continent long before the First Men arrived. During “Game of Thrones” Season 6, Bran Stark, the now Three-Eyed-Raven who can see things from the past, discovered that the Children were actually responsible for the White Walkers. Bran learned that long time ago; they created the White Walkers from the captured First Men.

Why would the Night King go to the Isle of Faces?

“Ultimately I think his end goal is to reach the Isles of Faces and use its magical properties to give life to his undead army,” the Redditor added. “The writers have dropped hints about the Gods Eye for years and have always discussed the Riverlands in great detail." Although this theory remains to be seen, for some “Game of Thrones” experts, this one does make sense.

What do you think?

“Game of Thrones” Season 8 will be the final season of HBO’s fantasy drama series with only six episodes in total. The productions start in October 2017, and it is slated to air sometime in 2018 or 2019.
