Since the early, shocking death of Ned Stark, Game Of Thrones fans have known that no character is safe. And, as the HBO series marches forward into Season 7, fewer and fewer of the original main characters are still standing. But two characters, Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), still have an air of invincibility. Even when Jon died, fans (rightly) questioned the permanence of it. Other deaths, no matter how big the characters, were accepted as finite. It felt like bad storytelling to kill Jon at that point, or again, immediately after his resurrection.

And while it's still anyone's game in the fight for power, the series seems to be sneakily marking Dany for death and positioning Jon to win it all. Here are just a few reasons why fans might want to start worrying about Daenerys Targaryen:
