Solid your thoughts again to the Home of the Dragon season 1 finale, and you may do not forget that Rhaneyra despatched her son Jace Velaryon off to Winterfell to hunt Lord Cregan Stark (her different son, Luce, was despatched to Storm’s Finish – and met a grisly destiny).
If Jace goes to the North, then there is not any motive he cannot find yourself visiting the Wall, too. Within the ebook, Jace and Cregan find yourself changing into shut, so a visit collectively is not out of the query.
There’s additionally the truth that Jace’s great-great-grandfather, King Jaehhaerys Targaryen (the grandfather of Viserys, who’s Rhaenyra’s late father) visited Winterfell together with his spouse Alysanne, and he or she then went to go to the wall along with her dragon Silverwing. Bizarrely, Silverwing refused to cross the Wall, which induced Alysanne some disquiet.
“‘Thrice I flew Silverwing excessive above Citadel Black, and thrice I attempted to take her north past the Wall,’ Alysanne wrote to Jaehaerys, ‘however each time she veered again south once more and refused to go,'” says Hearth and Blood (learn the excerpt at Martin’s Not a Weblog). “‘By no means earlier than has she refused to take me the place I needed to go. I laughed about it after I got here down once more, so the black brothers wouldn’t understand something was amiss, however it troubled me then and it troubles me nonetheless.'”
Finally, dragons did transcend the Wall with Daenerys Targaryen, as depicted in Recreation of Thrones season 8 – although not in Martin’s books simply but (if in any respect). We may get some extra readability on why precisely Silverwing was so cautious of crossing the Wall in Home of the Dragon season 2; season 1 already referenced the specter of the White Walkers with the inclusion of the Tune of Ice and Hearth prophecy, in spite of everything.
There’s additionally at all times an opportunity that the set is not really the Wall, and we’re as an alternative Winterfell beneath snow, or some place else within the North. We’ll simply have to attend and see to seek out out for certain.
Home of the Dragon season 2 would not but have a launch date, however it’s persevering with to movie throughout the WGA writers’ strike and the SAG-AFTRA actors’ strike.
