Newest 'Game of Thrones' theory suggests Tyrion will use the crossbow again, this time to kill Daenerys
With each passing day Daenerys is proving to be more like her father, the mad king, and her Hand may be forced to put an end to her.
'Game of Thrones' season 8 episode 3, which focused solely on the war of Winterfell ended with the death of the Night King, which made us all go, now what. Now, is when the "Game of Thrones" actually begins. We thought with the fall of many potential heirs, the final war would be between Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), but as it turns out, the "true heir" to the Iron Throne is Jon Snow (Kit Harington) aka Aegon Targaryen, the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Ned's younger sister Lyanna Stark, which complicates this a little for us viewers, but a lot more for his aunty/lover Danny.
For as long as she can remember, Daenerys has wanted one thing and that is to sit on the Iron Throne and rule the seven kingdoms, just as her father did. Despite the multiple attempts to assassinate her, getting sold to a barbaric Dothraki king (whom she eventually falls in love with), losing followers, cheated, and getting underestimated multiple times over, she rose to the top, all with the hopes of sitting on the Iron Throne. She has been patient for years inching her way to King's Landing, but when she was so close to getting what she wanted, Jon Snow requested that she fight for the living against the dead before fighting her mortal enemy.
While Daenerys' trust - and eventual love - in Jon inspired her to shift her agenda for a while, her primary focus will always be killing Cersei and taking her rightful place as the ruler. Her desperation to achieve this goal plainly is visible to her trusted hand, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage). Tyrion, most hated by his elder sister Cersei, willingly became Danny's advisor, and it was for one simple reason: "I believe she can make the world a better place."
However, as the days go by, it is getting even more difficult to believe these words. Will Danny, who burned men who refused to bow down to her and whose answer to all problems is my dragons, be the woman who will save Westeros? I think not. In fact, with each passing day, she is reminding us of her father the Mad King, who was blinded by his power. Tyrion is watching this closely - this slow but inevitable transformation of his queen from the savior of the slaves to the Mad Queen .
He has personally had to talk Danny out of taking extreme measures to prove a point, and there certainly would be a point in a man's life where he stops pretending everything is fine. Moreover, in the last episode, we see Tyrion and his estranged wife Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) share a sweet moment at the Crypts, where the latter admitted that he was the best husband she ever had. It almost seems like they are going to give their "marriage" another shot, and who do we know absolutely distrusts Danny? Why Sansa of course.
Sansa believes that her brother is getting titillated by the "dragon queen" and she wants nothing to do with her. Tyrion and Sansa's burgeoning relationship could prove to result in Daenerys' downfall, and Game of Thrones' penchant for poetic justice makes us believe he is going to kill and her it would involve an arrow.
“Your Grace, I saw hundreds of arrows fly towards you when you fought on the Blackwater Rush, and I saw hundreds of arrows miss. But any one of them could have found your heart and ended your life," Tyrion said this to Danny in the last season, and we cannot help but wonder if this was a hint of foreshadowing from David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. Our guess is Tyrion uses a crossbow similar to the one he used to kill his own father, to end Daenerys when power corrupts her.
