This "Game Of Thrones" Teaser Scene Might Mean We're Getting Baby Dragons In The Next Episode

Think about it: Why didn't we see much of Drogon in Seasons 4 and 5?

Buckle up your dragon-rider seatbelts, folks, because the latest Game of Thrones theory could completely change the stakes for our final two episodes...


Let's just say King's Landing isn't ready, and neither am I!!!

OK: So last week's episode (Season 8, Episode 4) was pretty terrible for a lot of reasons, but one big takeaway is that Daenerys now only has one dragon left for her epic face-off with Cersei.


In a surprise attack from Euron's fleet, Rhaegal was hit in the chest and neck by flying spears. Back in Season 8, Episode 3, Viserion (who was turned into a wight dragon in Season 7) was killed conclusively during the Battle of Winterfell. So, we only got Drogon left!

The odds aren't looking great for Daenerys, especially since Cersei has the Golden Company and probably plenty more of those giant scorpions (the crossbow-y dragon-killing machines) up her sleeve.


Plus, Big D has been steadily losing support from her most loyal advisors (Tyrion, Varys), as well as important allies (especially Sansa Stark).

But there's a fan theory floating around that maybe there will be a bunch of new dragons involved in this final battle — Drogon's secret offspring!


As redditor Justzxcvbnm explains: "I saw this theory some time ago but I didn't care at the time. But after I saw the Ep 5 promo, I started to think. This theory says that in the fifth season, when Drogon spends almost a whole season gone, he's actually laying eggs and is in fact a female. That's why he was burning fields full of sheep, goats, etc. to feed the baby dragons. He's the only one who disappeared, the only one who drove herds and took them all like roasted sheep."

As this baby dragons theory points out, the groundwork for this reveal might have already been laid out for us: remember back in seasons 4 and 5 when we didn't see much of Drogon at all?

Like, maybe the CGI budget was a little low those years...or MAYBE that absence was important!

All we knew was that Drogon was wreaking havoc on local sheepherders and eating up a ton of livestock.

And you know who eats a lot? Pregnant dragons and also their babies!!

If Drogon **was** off having babies a few years ago, then they'd be pretty much full-grown by now — and fully fledged for an epic battle.


Was this scene in the teaser for Episode 5 a hint of more dragons to come??

Plus, maybe that's the reason why we also see Euron in the teaser looking upward at the sky like this:


This is definitely the look of a dude who has miscalculated SOMETHING, i.e., probably the number of fire-breathing dragons he has to contend with!!

Anyway, maybe we're all just having baby fever or something, but I for one am extremely down with some baby/likely adolescent dragons coming in and tearing it up in King's Landing on Sunday night.

Anyone know the size of an average dragon brood??? Asking for a certain overwhelmed Greyjoy who may or may not be rethinking his choices...
