Even with the weather starting to change toward the warmer side of the thermometer, it will still be some months before we finally get the premiere of ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7, but there is still plenty we can talk about. One such topic is the recent release of a number of images from the seventh season of the vaunted series, on which could hold some very important information for the coming final seasons of the show.
WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD!
The image in question (above) is the one where Sam and Gilly, who we last saw entering the library at the Citadel in Season 6, are pouring over old texts, and Gilly is holding up one such text to where the audience can see it. If you are able to read it, it says the following:
“It is also written that there are annals in Asshai of such a darkness, and of a hero who fought against it with a red sword. His deeds are said to have been performed before the rise of Valyria, in the earliest age when Old Ghis was first forming its empire. This legend has spread west from Asshai, and the followers of R’hllor claim that this hero was named Azor Ahai, and prophesy his return.”
Of course, we have heard whispers and rumors of this prophecy throughout the series, mainly from Melissandre and her fellow Red priests, but its prominence here could mean there is some real substance to the “prophecy,” meaning either Jon Snow or Daenerys could indeed by Azor Ahai reborn, come back to stop the White Walkers. Clearly though, they will most likely have to work together to get the job done as the White Walker army has grown massive and even with Dany’s massive forces she might not be completely prepared for that kind of war, while Jon has basically spent his life preparing for the war with the White Walkers (which could lead credence to Jon being Ahai, especially since he was recently brought back from the dead by a Red Priestess…)
Do you have any thoughts or theories on the Azor Agai prophecy and who it might pertain to? Could it be some other than Jon or Dany? Share your opinions in the comments below!
