Realising that she wouldn’t stop until she had full control over every town and city in Westeros, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) stabbed her in the heart to stop her killing more innocent people.
The Mother of Dragons was clearly shocked by his actions and viewers saw the hurt in her eyes as she died.
Her dragon Drogon was enraged over her death and melted down the Iron Throne, which was the cause of so much death and destruction before flying off with her body.
Fans were shown what happened to the remaining characters including Jon, who went to the Night’s Watch and the Starks.
But it was never revealed what had happened to Drogon or Daenerys’ body in the epilogue.
However, it seems fans might have missed a huge clue regarding Daenerys’ final resting place as the new king, Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) discussed Drogon.
During the first meeting of the small council, it is mentioned the last dragon was last seen “flying east”.
To some this may seem like an insignificant detail, however, “east” of Westeros is Essos.
In Essos lies Old Valyria, which is where the Targaryen line originated many, many years ago.
In a time before Game of Thrones, nobles tamed dragons and ruled over Old Valryia. But the empire was destroyed by a volcano.
Only the Targaryens and their dragons survived before they moved to Dragonstone and ruled over Westeros.
It would therefore be fitting if Drogon had flown east with Daenerys body to lay her to rest in the place where the Targaryens originated.
Meanwhile it has been revealed that scenes between Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) were cut.
The pair went their separate ways in episode five of season eight with the wildling heading back to The Wall.
Speaking about the scenes, Tormund actor Kristofer revealed: “We did a lot of stuff with Tormund and Brienne that they took out, because it became too much.”
He revealed there was also a “small monologue” from Tormund but that too was cut from the final edit.
“I think they took the right choice in the edit, but there is some fun stuff laying around,” Kristofer concluded.
But it might not be bad news entirely for fans as the deleted scenes could appear as DVD extra.
