Khal Drogo Could Return To 'Game Of Thrones' For The Final Battle

Khal Drogo Could Return To 'Game Of Thrones' For The Final Battle

OK, OK, we get it - there's still loads of time to go until the next series of Game of Thrones comes out. That said, Christmas is still over a month away and you're all going off about that already.

To tide the time over until next year, when the final series ever will air, we've got to make do with crude fan theories and stuff that George R.R. Martin says to the media.

Oh, before we crack on - there are going to be spoilers in here, so don't bother if you've not seen up to the end of season seven.

With that in mind, how about the idea that we could see Jason Momoa return to play Khal Drogo - or at least some sort of rejuvenated version of him - to battle alongside his ex-wife, Daenerys Targaryen, and her new toyboy/nephew, Jon Snow.

That could get a bit awkward, but it is a theory that is gathering quite a bit of traction online.

So, here we go - Now that the Night King has arrived, and he has his own ice dragon alongside him, the whole show is pointed towards a final showdown between the forces of good and evil.

At the minute, it seems as if the good guys are heavily outnumbered and don't have a basically inexhaustible army of dead folks to keep themselves going along with.

However, one Reddit user called u/cadiacman has posited that every character that has been burned to death (or after death) could be resurrected in much the same way as all of the ice folks were, by that 'Red God' that the Red Priestess Melisandre keeps banging on about.

I'll let u/cadiacman explain: "All characters that have been burned to death/after death by fire will be reincarnated by R'hllor (god of fire/light/red god).

"You fight an army with an army, an army of burned dead people that you resurrect."

That could mean that characters like Drogo, Loras Tyrell, Shireen Baratheon (not sure how much help she'd be) could make a comeback.

Basically, anyone who has been burned would be alive again. I mean, the thing is called A Song of Ice and Fire in the books. We've seen the ice, we now need the fire.

Obviously, we don't know anything about what the next season will contain, and they are off the books now, so we can't even get an inkling from them.

What we do know is that we should expect everyone to die - nothing new there - and that the final battle is going to be huge.


Peter Dinklage - Tyrion Lannister to you and me - confirmed to Entertainment Weekly: "It makes the 'Battle of the Bastards' look like a theme park."

Sure, but is it better than Alton Towers?
