With the show as brutal as "Game of Thrones," we can expect nothing less than bloodshed from its eighth and final season. And today, as we continue to make our death predictions for "Game of Thrones" Season 8, we'd like to talk about how the dragons might die.

The death of dragons theory

With Viserion's death in "Beyond the Wall" episode still fresh in our memory, it seems like a good time to talk about the other two dragons and how we think they will meet their demise.

It was painful to watch the dragon we all grew to love helplessly drowning. And if this theory by Reddit user mybustersword is to be believed, Drogon and Rhaegal could die as well by the time "Game of Thrones" ends. But let's talk about some symbolism first, shall we?

As Daenerys explained to Jon Snow in Season 7, Rhaegal and Viserion are named after her dead brothers Rhaegar and Viserys, while Drogon, the biggest one, is the namesake of her deceased husband, Khal Drogo.

With that in mind, it shouldn't be too far-fetched to say that the death of dragons could somehow mirror the deaths of the people whose names they carry.

How will the dragons die?

Let's start by talking about Viserion's ultimate death. Given the fact that Viserys, the man he was named after, was killed by Khal Drogo, it stands the reason that the dragon might meet a similar fate. Although it is highly unlikely that any golden crowns will be involved this time around, we still think that Drogon will kill Viserion, only this time, he will stay dead.

As far as Rhaegal is concerned, he could die at the Trident to mirror Rhaegar's death at the hands of Robert Baratheon. With that in mind, some fans suggest that Gendry, Robert's son, will kill the dragon by accident, but we don't think that's likely. To us, Rhaegal's death remains a mystery, but his name definitely hints at the special connection he will have with Jon Snow, Rhaegar's son, who is going to ride him into battle.

Finally, let's talk about Drogon's death. While many people believe that he is going to be the one who survives the whole thing, we don't think that will be the case. To recall, Drogon was hit by Bronn in the "Spoils of War" episode with an arrow that might have been poisoned. And even though the dragon seems fine for now, that doesn't mean that he will be in the future. Also, there is another scenario in which Drogon will be hit again in "Game of Thrones" Season 8, only this time the wound will be fatal.

In either case, his death will mirror Khal Drogo's.
