Dread it, run from it, the destiny has arrived all the same, and there’s no escaping the reality that Game of Thrones Season 8 just came to its end. And with it, the show at large!
However, nobody will deny the fact that the most famous TV series was notoriously unfocused on the events which took place before Ned Stark chose to make a beeline for King’s Landing to serve as the Hand of King Robert Baratheon. Besides the brief flashbacks experienced by Bran as the new Three-Eyed Raven, the show answered only a few questions about Westeros’ past events, even as the series came to an end.
With the prequel series of Game of Thrones, Bloodmoon, on the horizon, these are the 5 questions we want to be answered.
Who Was the Night King?
Continuously built up as the most threatening antagonistic force in GoT universe, the Night King was the strongest enemy that the series’ very different characters had to come together to defeat him and his army.
Though the series has come to an end, the question persists that neither the author George R. R. Martin nor the show has answered yet.
As indicated by a few reports, the main Game of Thrones Prequel currently in development is tentatively titled ‘Bloodmoon,’ and is centred around the origins of the Night King and his army of White Walkers.
What is West of Westeros, After All?
From a tiny girl who couldn’t help leaving the needle to becoming a Faceless, the journey of Arya Stark on Game of Thrones was probably one of the most interesting ones.
In the season finale, we got to know about Arya’s plan to explore the West of Westeros. Would it be up to Game of Thrones prequel to explore what exactly this place is?
What was Westeros Like When Inhabited by the Children of the Forest?
Now, it is known to everyone that Children of the Forest were the original inhabitants of Westeros before the arrival of the First Men at the continent.
The origin story for the Children of the Forest is perhaps a point of high interest among the fans of Game of Thrones. Though certain details were revealed in the show, yet a lot is in the dark.
What Happened that Brandon Stark Had to Build the Wall?
We saw Jon Snow taking up the Night’s Watch, developing himself as a fighter, becoming a leader and uniting everyone to fight the battle against the Night King. Throughout the seasons, Game of Thrones was quite a lot focused on the Wall.
Also known as ‘The Builder, it was Brandon Stark who built the Wall in the first place, and only a little is known about what really happened during that period.
There are myths that Brandon Stark was assisted by the giants and the Children of the Forest to build the Wall. So, what exactly happened during that period is yet to be seen?
What is the History Behind the 3 Dragons?
A considerable amount of time of the later seasons of Game of Thrones was spent in Dragonstone. This was the place where Daenerys Targaryen devised her plans and Jon Snow accumulated Dragonglass for mass-producing the weapons against the White Walkers.
3 wild dragons were never claimed by any rider was one very interesting time in the history of Dragonstone. Given that so much of the history of wild dragons in Westeros is attached to the Targaryen house, it would surely be worth exploring how these 3 wild dragons took a different path.
