"Game of Thrones" Season 8's fourth episode was full of surprises. The death of a dragon in the episode left many fans angry. The cliffhanger of Episode 4, entitled "The Last of the Starks," has left open the start of the highly anticipated battle between Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister, and the most ardent fans are trying to guess what will happen in the next episode. One of the most interesting theories concerns the arrival of new dragons.

With the death of Rhaegal, the Mother of Dragons has lost two of her three children, and some people claim that she will end up losing Drogon too - similarly to how Cersei lost Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen.

Many fans now believe that in Episode 5 of "Game of Thrones" Season 8, we will see the arrival of new dragons, born from the eggs laid by the first three.

Dragons in 'Game of Thrones'

In the novels of George RR Martin, it is explained that dragons have no gender and that their genus is "as changeable as fire." If you make a little effort, you will surely remember that at the beginning of Season 5, Daenerys, still in Essos, lost control of Drogon, who disappeared for several episodes, the mystery of where he had gone to was revealed in Episode 5x05, when Tyrion and Ser Jorah, sailing near the ancient city of Valyria, saw him flying through the sky above their heads.

According to Time magazine, Drogon may have reached the ancestral lands where the Targaryen dynasty arose, to lay eggs.

Also, according to the theory, he may have also met others like him near Valyria. Drogon has already demonstrated his attachment to the "mother" Daenerys - he recently protected her in the Battle of Winterfell - and may wish to summon these other dragons to help her in the siege of King's Landing. After all the weapons, anti-dragon used by Euron Greyjoy could be lethal for a single dragon but would serve little damage to dozens of fire-breathing creatures.

In this sense, the theory seems to be supported by the final shot of the trailer of the fifth episode, when the king of the Iron Islands, looking up towards the sky, hears the cry of a dragon.

Trailer for episode 5

Here is the trailer of the episode 5 of "Game of Thrones" season 8.

In that precise moment, that is before the trailer ends, the expression of Euron gets darker, a reaction totally opposed to that of genuine enthusiasm that we expect.

Only two weeks remain until the grand finale of "Game of Thrones" (the trailer for the fifth episode is already online). Now, given the great battle coming up, all that remains is to wonder who will be the next to say goodbye to spectators and traveling companions. To soften the emotion, it's better to smile, thinking back to the singular appearance of a Starbucks cup during the Winterfell celebrations scene.
