Season 8 of Game of Thrones is set to return in a couple of months as the countdown starts. But will the final edition of the show has any answers to one of the biggest mysteries of Westeros: The Doom of Valyria?
All loose ends will be wrapped when the season hits the TV screens in April on HBO and Sky. Fans will finally get to find out who will take the Iron Throne, and who will defeat the Knight King. However, there are some things within the mythology and folklore of the seven empires that have remained a mystery, including the Doom of Valyria. The Doom is significant for the upsurge of the Targaryen family, but can it play a role in the final series of Game of Thrones?
Doom of Valyria in Game of Thrones
The Doom of Valyria is an enigmatic event that explodes in the entire hills of the region, causing smoke and ash in the air.
The Doom took place in 114 BC, about a century ago, during Aegon Targaryen’s Conquest of Westeros.
The volcanoes of Valyria and the Fourteen Flames also exploded and released molten magma onto the land, destroying everything that came in its way.
Several tsunamis were activated by the Doom with lands flooding endlessly, and an abnormal tidal movement was striking distant lands.
In essence, all the people and dragons were eliminated by the Doom, as clouds rained down Dragon glass on Valyria and its population.
However, if you want to remain spoiler-free about all things regarding the final season of Game of Thrones, look elsewhere now.
Fall of the Winterfell
There are some details that have surfaced from Northern Ireland relating to the colossal battle, that will be held in the Game of Thrones season 8.
We were aware that home of House Stark, which is the Winterfell was under siege, but the most prestigious castle in the North is about to burn to the ground.
Yes, that’s right, Winterfell will be in flames.
This news was first reported by the renowned website Watchers on the Wall, and they are the Masters of all things concerning to the Game of Thrones.
We may assume that Daenerys will deceive Jon Snow, but those flames can be easily caused by Viserion’s blue flame. Just like before the creators could film the normal fire, and the color change can be done in post-production.
The epic battle for GOT Season 8
Maybe Cersei has done, what no leader has done in decades – trooped the Southern forces into the North to battle House Stark at their stronghold?
It was confirmed that the fire is part of a big war scene, and about 400 to 500 extras were involved. The spokesman of a fire service confirmed that they were called to the spot, but ‘no action has been taken.
HBO’s Head of programming, Casey Bloys, has said earlier that fake endings were being shot for the show, so this could be a part of some extravagant hoax. They will be shooting multiple versions of ending so that nobody can know what happens,”.
Whatever the reason, it’s safe to say that House Stark will have to undergo through more misery.
