Something absolutely insane and unexpected happened in Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6. And fans aren’t sure the identity of the dragon involved.
There are MAJOR spoilers for Season 7 Episode 6 of Game of Thrones in the story below.
So don’t read on unless you’ve already seen the latest episode.
In the battle north of the Wall, Dany flew in with all three of her dragons to save Jon Snow and the other six men who accompanied him.
But in the middle of that battle, the Night King came out with a new weapon.
It was worse than the Scorpion weapon.
He managed to kill one of Dany’s dragons. :(
It was absolutely, horrifically heart-wrenching.
But which dragon died? In the battle, it was hard for some fans to figure it out.
Fans have discovered that the dragon that’s gone is Viserion. :(
Fans figured it out because the closeups showed Viserion’s coloring. Viserion has cream-and-gold colored scales and red orange wings.
Viserion has darkened a bit as he’s gotten older, but the coloring was there if you looked closely.
But we try not to think of that too much.
Here are the dragons earlier, fighting and killing the wights and feeling happy:
Honestly, we’d rather remember the dragons this way.
A Redditor wrote a touching post to Viserion. Read it below:
His name was Viserion Targaryen…. he came to us from the shadowlands beyond Asshai. A brother to Drogon and Rhaegal. He was a dragon loyal to the end. No dragon was gentler. In his heart, burned the fire of a thousand suns, but now his fire has gone out.
We shall never see his like again. And now, his watch is ended.
