So, where were we? Ice dragons. Hmmm, the topic sounds to be way cooler than the casual dragons. Dragons who spit ice shards instead of fire. Impaling with ice shards instead of the inferno of the casual ones. While thinking they do not sound so intimidating. But maybe I am wrong and in this case I would be glad if I am proven wrong.
At the end of Season 6, Sam and Gilly arrived at the Citadel, which is essentially Masters HQ. In Season 7, they’ll be beefing up on plot-relevant knowledge thanks to its massive libraries. One photo from the season shows them reading about Azor Ahai, a legendary hero from long ago who will supposedly be reborn to save the world from darkness. That’s the part that has caught everyone’s attention, since many fans think Jon Snow is Azor Ahai reborn. But elsewhere in Sam and Gilly’s reading material, there’s also a reference to ice spiders rumored to be as large as the houses. If there could be ice fiends behemoth, I would certainly count a ice dragon as a valid possibility too.
When the Stark children and Jon Snow were growing up at Winterfell, Old Nan told them stories filled with mythical creatures. Ice spiders are one such myth. But many people also think White Walkers are legendary, and look how that turned out. If Sam and Gilly’s reading material implies that ice spiders will appear, it also paves the way for ice dragons. Although they haven’t been mentioned in the show, they come up in the books. In A Dance With Dragons Jon Snow stops to reflect on Old Nan’s stories: “The wind was gusting, cold as the breath of the ice dragon in the tales Old Nan had told when Jon was a boy.”
Could the stories of the old Nan be possibly true? Or are we fans trying to give rise to a myth, which was not even deemed worthy to be mentioned in the shows (which majority follow instead of books, I guess). But there are still more hints to the ice dragons and their possible existence. You want to know them. But for that you need to wait one week, just like you waited for the current episode.
