Is Dragons Vs. White Walkers ‘Game Of Thrones’ Endgame? If Not, Then It Totally Should Be
I could sit here and list over a hundred reasons why everyone (and I do mean everyone) should be watching the popular HBO series Game of Thrones. From the riveting storylines to the complex characters, each and every episode never fails to leave you on the edge of your seat. But apart from the show's overall greatness, there's another even bigger allure for tuning in that immediately comes to mind, involving two of the most fearsome (and captivating) creatures to ever set foot in this iconic fantasy world: the dragons and the White Walkers. Though neither group has yet to receive ample amounts of screen time (likely due to budgeting limitations), I'm inclined to believe that GoT has an epic battle in store between the dragons and the White Walkers that will commence before this series is through.
Why, you may ask? Well, in my mind it's more like, why not? I mean, that has to be where all of this is headed, right? Why else would you create two such massive big bads if you never plan on using them to their full potential? It just wouldn't make any sense. Not to mention that the actual book series itself is called A Song of Ice and Fire. What's more icy than White Walkers and more fiery than dragons? (That's a rhetorical question, of course, because the answer is nothing.) The remainder of the books may still be in the process of being written, but I can sense a game-changing battle on the horizon, the likes of which we've never seen before.
So in keeping with that theory, I've decided to predict what a powerful face-off like that would even look like. You know, aside from just plain awesome.
There Would Be Fire
As Well As Ice
Because, duh. Winter is coming, haven't you heard?
There'd Be Surprise Sneak Attacks
No dark corner would be safe.
And Chilling Stares
Some Would Have A Height Advantage
Not to mention a certain largeness in scale (and scales).
But What's Lacked In Size Could Be Made Up For In Numbers
Lots and lots of numbers.
Dragons Would Be An Unstoppable Force
There's just no doubt about it.
But How Do You Defeat What's Already Dead?
By using their one great weakness against them: dragon glass. (Note that the key word there is dragon.) That can't be a coincidence. Oh, and just imagine if the White Walkers killed the dragons and turned them into Dragon White Walkers.
My sentiments exactly. Get ready, guys. We're in for a crazy and wild ride.
