With probably another year and a half remaining until we get to see Game of Thrones’ final season, rumors about which character lives, dies and may or may not make a comeback have been spreading like wildfire.

One such character the audience would love to see back in action would be Khal Drogo played by Jason Momoa. While the Dothraki warlord managed to survive one season of Game of Thrones, there are speculations about the character making a comeback in the upcoming season. This is not the first time Momoa appeared in a flashback since his death- he also appeared in a dream sequence with Daenerys Targaryen and their son in the finale of season two.

Khal Drogo was killed off in the very first season of Game of Thrones after he was poisoned by a wound.  The Khaleesi turned to a slave woman Mirri Maz Durr for help. She managed to convince Daenerys that the Khal could be saved but it would come at the cost of their son's life. The unsuspecting Khaleesi not only lost her unborn baby but the terrible blood magic also resulted in Khal Drogo being left in a vegetative state. Dany was unaware of the woman was out for revenge for an attack on her village. Deeply distressed and saddened at the turn of affairs she smothered Drogo and burned Mirri Maz Duur in his funeral pyre.

According to the Cosmopolitan, Jason Momoa’s recent Instagram post caused all the chatter. And Jason Momoa has done very little to silence the chatter. The Instagram post showed him hanging out with the showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss.

Doing little to silence all the fan speak, Momoa captioned his post- "Layovers. Where we going? What are we doing? What's the score here.? What's next??"

Could this possibly mean a return of the warlord? Perhaps in some flashback scene in season eight? Or was it just a casual meeting to catch-up with old friends and trolling us viewers?

"I haven't been over there in a long time. You just want to see your friends and you end up making headlines going, 'Drogo's back!' and I'm like, 'He's dead! He can't come back, it wouldn't work.' However, there has been a theory according to which Khal Drogo would return.

A Reddit user speculates that Mirri Maz Duur’s prophecy could come true. According to Express, the user said, “This could mean that: the sun in the west (meaning the Targaryen from the west = Jon) has risen (now the heir to the throne), while the sun in east (meaning the Targaryen from the east = Dany) has set (no longer the heir).

“Plus, ‘the seas go dry’ because winter has come and they froze and ‘mountains blow in the wind like leaves’ when The Wall has fallen. This will explain how Dany can now get pregnant.”
