Daenerys may have surprised some viewers in the final episode of Game of Thrones. His fate has been prophesied in the series for years.
– Warning: This is followed by spoilers for the episode 5 of Season 8 of "Game of Thrones"! –
Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) showed her true face in the latest version of Game of Thrones. In "The Bells", the English title of episode 5 of season 8, she had already won the battle for Königsmund – and then decided to burn everything. The theory about her move to the mad queen was confirmed. Daenerys actually followed his father, the lunatic King Aerys II, and his last words: "Burn them all!"
Some viewers will probably be surprised by this drastic development. At the same time, the crazy Daenerys has been announced for some time. At least this season, the evidence has increased. In fact, we could have known since Season 2 and Season 6, that Daenerys will be the sinking of Königsmund.

Season 2 shows the destruction of Königsmund
In Season Two, the mother of the dragons wanted to free their children from the House of the Immortals in Qarth. The magician Pyat Pree saw Daenerys stumble across a series of visions, and now we must call them prophecies. In the beginning, it stands before the Iron Throne, the throne room is visibly destroyed, the ceiling collapses. During this scene it seems to snow, but some fans suspect that the ashes may fall.
Here you can remember the vision:
This prophecy can be interpreted in many ways. If indeed they are ashes, she will probably defend the invasion of King's Mouth, after all, now she is Daenerys, the queen of the ashes. In turn, the snow would represent the beginning of winter and / or Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), who could eventually sit in his place on the Iron Throne. But maybe both apply and it is deliberately uncertain whether we saw snow or ash here because it is a mixture.
After the throne room, Daenerys leaves the gate beyond the north wall, which has already proven true. Then she meets Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa) and her son in a tent. Daenerys says she will be reunited with the two as the sun sets in the west and east, when the rivers dry and the mountains recede like leaves in the wind. Since this seems impossible, he could predict Daenerys's death when he finally sees Drogon and his son again.

Season 4 and 6 prophesied that Daenerys becomes a mad queen
In Season 4, Episode 2, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) touches a Weirwood tree that shows where to find the Three-toed Raven. During this vision, the boy Stark also sees other impressions, of which two are especially interesting. On the one hand, he also sees the ruined and apparently snow-covered throne room in Königsmund, which we already know of the Daenerys version. In addition, he also sees the roofs of the capital and the shadow of a huge dragon flying over it.
The sight can be remembered here again.
In the sixth episode of Season Six, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) begins to become the Three-Finged Crow. During these transformations, it is again dominated by a series of impressions and images, most of them from the past. Then we see here for the first time the father of Daenerys, the crazy King Aerys II, who gives his famous "Burn them all!" For the best.
In addition, he once again sees the shadow of a dragon flying over the rooftops of Königsmund. Exactly that photo we finally saw in "The Bells," just before Daenerys rained on the town's population.
Bran's vision in a slower version so you can better see the scene with the dragon:
Brans's impressions were also a prophecy, as we now know. Not only that, the silhouette of the dragon over Königsmund came true. The combination with the lunatic king was not a coincidence, but has already shown us what Daenerys is: The crazy queen, who not only breaks the wheel in Westeros, but burns.
