All The Babies that Might Complicate Things
Nothing like a little bundle of joy to raise the stakes. That’s what babies are for right? Plot purposes? To fulfill prophecies? We thought so.
Daenerys and Jon are pregnant (with a boy) [Probability: High]
Ah yes, the “son in your arms” Aemon told Jon about back in Season 1. “But hold the fuck on,” you say, “Mirri Maz Dur cursed Daenerys with barrenness, and we keep getting regular reminders of this fact!” Look, you’re not wrong. But maybe Jon’s being touched by blood magic will counteract the curse. Plus, if all of Daenerys’ dragons are dead when the dust settles, her past will be behind her and she can start a fresh, human life with a fresh human baby. Jorah already gave Jon his blessing to pass Longclaw down to his kids and everything!
Daenerys and Jon are pregnant (but there’s a twist) [Probability: Medium]
Look, you never know. Maybe something terrible happens. Or they have twins.
Cersei will miscarry [Probability: High]
Let’s talk about wine. Back in Season 7, when Tyrion comes to speak privately with his sister, he leans into the one thing they both have in common and pours two glasses of wine. Much to his (and our) surprise, she doesn’t drink and uses the power of mime to let Tyrion know she’s pregnant. Believe it or not, there is heated debate about why she refuses the wine. If we choose to follow the logic that she’s not drinking because she’s pregnant, the shot of her looking sad holding a glass of red in the Season 8 trailer does not bode well. If you’re unconvinced, there’s always Maggy the Frog’s prophecy that she would have three children (Joffrey, Myrcella and Tommen) and only three children.
