Before Season 8, most viewers probably thought Daenerys and her dragons were nearly invincible. But once the Night King launched an ice spear into the neck of the dearly departed (and icily resurrected) Viserion - and Euron slayed Rhaegal with his fleet of scorpions - it became clear the Mother of Dragons was as vulnerable as any being in Westeros or member of her family. Tyrion repeatedly reminds Dany that she's not invincible, and Daenerys herself has reminded viewers she's unable to conceive children and, therefore, continue her legacy. This has to be more than coincidence. So that leaves us with the question: How will Daenerys die? 

Now, we all know Game of Thrones loves to surprise its loyal fanbase with sudden deaths of major characters. As the series drew to a close, the audience prepared themselves for a few more shocking twists and untimely ends for our faves. There were more than a few Daenerys Targaryen theories floating around the internet that totally called she was going to die instead of take the throne.
