Game Of Thrones’ fans are convinced Daenerys’ dragon Drogon secretly had BABIES

Daenerys Targaryen’s dragon Rhaegal met his tragic demise when he was shot down by Euron Greyjoy’s fleet during last week’s episode of Game Of Thrones.

Rhaegal’s death left just one dragon in existence after another of Daenerys’ beasts, Viserion, was turned into a blue-fire-breathing zombie by the Night King at the end of season seven, before shattering into ice with the rest of the White Walker army.

But Game Of Thrones’ viewers are now convinced that the final dragon, Drogon, isn’t the last creature to grace the skies of Westeros, according to a new fan theory.

More dragons! Viewers have insisted that there are a brood of baby dragons who have been growing in Westeros, and they are apparently set to finally appear in next weeks episode

Viewers have insisted that there are a brood of baby dragons who have been growing in Westeros, and they are apparently set to appear in next weeks episode.

The theory stems from Drogon’s prolonged absence at the end of season four until mid-way into the fifth series of the hit HBO show, where Daenerys confides in her then lover Daario Naharis that she has ‘no idea’ where Drogon is.

Fans have been quick to jump on the hypothesis and claimed that it explains where Drogon went during his departure earlier in the series, as it is never really explained why he disappeared – and they believe laying eggs is a reasonable explanation.

One fan stood firm on the fact they predicted baby dragons ages ago, and wrote: ‘I swear if Drogon actually had babies I was the first person to say it! Back when he/she went rogue I said this B done gone to give birth.’

Another was convinced the dragons will make an appearance next week, adding: ‘I believe that Drogon disappeared in season four to protect his baby dragons until they were swole (big) and next week we’re going to see an army of angsty teen dragons f**k up King’s Landing.’

A third predicted that this could mean the end for Queen Cersei, writing: ‘Words cannot explain how much I hope Drogon had babies back in s5 and now a fleet of bad ass dragons are about to tear up Cersei #GameOfThrones.’ 

Gender fluid: However one Twitter user argued that it is suggested in George R. R. Martin's books that all dragons are gender fluid and are even able to change their sex if they desire

One potential flaw that has been pointed out is that Drogon has always been thought of as a boy, due to the fact that Daenerys named them after influential male figures in her life, Rhaegal, Viserion and Drogon – when she walked out of a raging fire and ‘gave birth’ to the dragons. 

However one Twitter user argued that it is suggested in George R. R. Martin’s books that all dragons are gender fluid and are even able to change their sex if they desire.

This theory was agreed by Septon Barth, hand of the King to Jaehaerys Targaryen, and Maester Aemon who both concurred that a dragon’s gender was ‘as changeable as flame’.

Other eagle-eyed viewers surmised that the creators have always known that one of the dragons was going to give birth to babies judging by the opening credits.

It could be that producers have dropped a tiny easily-missed hint into the opening credits, informing viewers that there will be more dragons to come in future.

A snapshot from the start of the programme shows the Astrolabe (ball of light encircled by several bands) from the title sequence engraved with one big golden dragon surrounded by three baby ones.

One fan wrote: ‘So if this is true, that dragon pic is probs Drogon flying in with three babies that are going to easily fly in past the harpoons. #GOT #DanerysTargaryen #Drogon.’

The final piece of evidence noted by fans is the look of surprise on Euron’s face as he looks up into the sky during next week’s teaser, as the clip cuts out as the beginnings of a roar can be heard.

Arguably Euron wouldn’t be that shocked to see Drogon again, as he knows he is alive and has already seen him in the flesh, leading viewers to believe this could be the moment a fleet of baby dragons arrives. 

What can he see? The final piece of evidence noted by fans is the look of surprise on Euron's face as he looks up into the sky as the clip cuts out as the beginnings of a roar can be heard
