One might claim that Daenerys Targaryen had the most tragic ending of all. She was overwhelmed by her power and grief, killed thousands, then was killed by her lover/nephew Jon Snow.
After Jon drives his blade into her chest, she dies in his arms. But that’s not the conclusion of her journey. Inexplicably linked to her child dragon, Drogon came to find his mother dead on the ground. Rather than killing Jon Snow, who killed Daenerys, Drogon dissolves the Iron Throne, which is a romantic way finally did kill Dany.
Then, Drogon picks Daenerys up in his claw and flies off with his mother’s body. But where is he going?
It’s not clear at the moment, but later in the episode, someone passingly mentions that Drogon was detected flying East. We’re not given an specific destination, but it seems very likely that Drogon is flying to Essos, the origins of the Targaryen line in Old Valyria. As the Game of Thrones wiki describes of the origins of dragons:
Five thousand years ago, men of the Valyrian Freehold learned how to master and ride dragons as beasts of war, and used them to forge an empire that stretched across most of the continent of Essos, dominating almost half of the Known World. Four hundred years before the War of the Five Kings, the entire Valyrian empire and almost all of its dragons were destroyed in a single day, during a cataclysmic volcanic eruption known as the Doom of Valyria. One Valyrian noble family, the Targaryens, survived the Doom on the distant island outpost of Dragonstone in the Narrow Sea – along with the last surviving Valyrian dragons.
It seems rather dramatic that Drogon would bring the Queen of Dragons to be put to rest among her ancestors. What’s also exciting is that with Drogon still alive and in the wild, it could be possible for the dragon species to reproduce. If Drogon is able to lay eggs, that means that there could be more dragons. And seeing as Jon is the only one left alive who can apparently tame dragons-being of Targaryen blood-he could maybe find himself back in control of the most Fierceful creature in the known world.
