Game of Thrones Daenerys death proved everybody was WRONG about Drogon
Daenerys didn’t just fail to claim the Iron Throne, she was the cause of its destruction. In the HBO finale, the melting lump of metal beautifully symbolised the end of the ultimate evil, which wasn’t the Night King, or even Daenerys – it was the lure of power. Sadly, the script also revealed that Drogon incinerated the throne in a random act of grief rather than a grand gesture of revenge, but then much of the final season failed to deliver satisfactory pay-offs. Since then, the world of Westeros and the watching fans are now obsessed with Drogon, but they are wrong on two major points.
Firstly, many seem to believe Drogon was irrevocably linked only to Daenerys.
Yes, she shared a closer bond with her dragons than any Targareyn before her, but Drogon is now free after her death. Some have argued he would never take another rider but this is not true. Dragons typically live longer than humans and Martin’s texts, especially the recent Fire and Blood book, contain examples of dragons taking a new rider after the former one dies.
There is only one man we know about currently, who Drogon would accept.
The dragon did not see Jon kill Dany and it’s unclear even if that would be a deterrent, anyway. That would attribute human feelings and notions of justice and revenge to a dragon.
But that is still not everyone’s greatest fear – or their greatest mistake about Drogon.
There is a huge misconception that dragons are essentially rampaging weapons of mass destruction.
Yes, they can be used as such. But why does everyone seem to think Drogon will ‘dracarys’ his way across the land?
When were dragons ever shown randomly killing and burning on a major scale?
Yes, there was an unfortunate incident with a flambeed shepherd child, but that was almost certainly because the dragon did not distinguish the small human among the sheep it was roasting for dinner.
GAME OF THRONES: DOES THIS DELETED DAENERYS SCENE GIVE HUGE CLUE ABOUT THE BOOKS?
Every time Drogon or his brothers incinerated anyone or anything it was at the direct command of Daenerys, whether to execute someone or obliterate entire armies.
Dragons do not fly across the world burning everything in their path. Nor will Drogon.
So, why is Bran so concerned to keep an eye on the giant creature? He may be curious, like the rest of us, to know what Drogon will do with Dany’s body. He will want to make sure no other potential Targaryen heir emerges who can ride Drogon. He may even, as some fans hope, have a plan to somehow warg with the dragon.
But Drogon, left alone, poses no future threat to Westeros.
