Fans should expect to have all their burning questions answered when the HBO drama series returns. The penultimate season contained a myriad of hints at what could possibly happen in “Game of ThronesSeason 8--from character deaths and reunions to prophecy fulfillments. Below, we have come up with our own predictions on possible spoilers and plot details when the show returns in 2019.

Character reunions

There were several character reunions in season seven. In Winterfell, the Stark siblings Arya, Bran and Sansa got back together and Sam saw Bran again.

In Kings Landing, Tyrion saw her sister Cersei and Davos met Gendry. The Hound also reunited with his brother The Mountain. Gendry remembered when the Brotherhood Without Banners sold him to Melisandre when he met them at The Wall. Suffice to say, the penultimate season sets up the series for more reunions in season 8.

  • Arya and Jon Snow: When Arya learned that Jon was now the King of the North, she abandoned her plan to go to Kings Landing and went home instead. The two were very close. Jon even gave Arya his Needle before he left for the Night’s Watch. There is no doubt that they will be very happy to see each other again after all these years. Jon will certainly be very surprised when he sees how much Arya has changed.

  • Arya, Sansa, and The Hound: These three will reunite in Winterfell. Arya last saw The Hound when she left him for dead after his fight with Brienne. Perhaps when they meet, he should thank Arya for not killing him. After all, he was on her kill list.

  • Sam and Jon Snow: John Bradley (Sam) told Bustle that it would be “poetic” if Sam tells Jon about his true parentage. Jon would believe his friend because he knows that he is “so thorough and so academic in his research.” Sam wouldn’t be telling Jon that he is Aegon Targaryen if it is not true.

  • Arya and Gendry: Do we smell a romantic subplot when the two reunite? Arya had grown fond of Gendry when they traveled together during season 2. Perhaps this time he can finally call her “my lady.”
  • Daario and Daenerys: The arrival of the Golden Company in Kings Landing in season 8 hints at the return of Daenerys’ lover. Once Daario learns of the sellswords’ business in Westeros, he would think that the Mother of Dragons is in danger. He knows that Daenerys would never resort to hiring the Golden Company to fight for her, so he would suspect that Cersei paid them.

Prophecies and deaths

“Game of Thrones” season 8 will fulfill old prophecies about Daenerys, Jon Snow and Cersei.

We will finally know whether Mirri Maz Duur lied about Daenerys being barren and who Maggy the Frog referred to as the “little brother” who will kill Cersei. The final run of the drama series will also answer if Jon Snow is the Azor Ahai who will save the world.

  • Cersei’s death: Fans believe that Jaimie will kill his sister in season 8. That look of disbelief he gave Cersei in the season 7 finale after she threatened to have him killed was all it took to fuel this speculation. Interestingly, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) agrees with this theory.
  • Daenerys’ pregnancy and death: Mirri Maz Duur was rather vague about her prophecy but Daenerys believes that she will never bear a child again. However, Kit Harington (Jon Snow) seemingly hinted that Jon becomes a father to Daenerys’ child in “Game of Thrones” season 8 (see video below). It’s believed that Daenerys dies in childbirth.

    According to the prophecy, Khal Drogo will return when Daenerys’ “womb quickens again.” Interestingly, Jason Momoa, who plays the former Dothraki leader, recently reunited with the casts in Belfast.

  • Jon Snow saves the world: Jon Snow is believed to be the Azor Ahai who will save the world from darkness. Melisandre brought him back from the dead, which would align with the prophecy of the prince’s rebirth. However, for Jon to save the world, he has to kill the one he loves. Given how season 7 of the drama series ended, it’s safe to assume that Jon kills his new love, Daenerys, in “Game of Thrones.”
