One can never really tell what might happen on Game of Thrones especially with the original material exhausted and the show basically inventing its materials. The eighth and final season of the HBO show is not an exception to this reality but could they have spoilt the coming episodes for its viewers?
Remember the melancholic song Podrick, Lady Brienne’s squire, sang during episode 2 “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”? The song seems to foretell which of the persons vying for the throne will end up ruling the Seven Kingdoms.
Quick recap: the moment happens while Podrick, Brienne, Jaime Lannister, Tormund Giantsbane, Tyrion Lannister, and Ser Davos Seaworth are gathered around a fire, awaiting the arrival of the Night King and the Army of the Dead. They drink wine and reminisce on old times and past battles. When the wine runs out, Tyrion suggests they sing a song and when nobody responds, Podrick starts to song the mournful tune.
Basically, the song he sang is called “Jenny’s Song”. The song appears in the novels as one of the Ghost of High Heart’s favorite songs.
According to the story, Jenny is a low-status woman who got married to Prince Duncan Targaryen but their union didn’t gain the approval of King Aegon V, Prince Duncan’s father. This caused Prince Duncan to renounce his claim to the Iron Throne despite being the rightful heir.
We have seen throughout the show the “things we do for love” – Jaime Lannister pushing Bran out of the window to protect his affair with his sister Cersei and the romantic relationship between Jon Snow (Aegon Targaryen) and Daenerys, his aunt.
We know now that Jon Snow has reveals that he truly is to Daenerys but having Podrick sing the same song about a lover abdicating his throne because of love just before Jon has that conversation with Dany mean that the same might happen at the end of the season?
Note that The Ghost of High Heart is thought to be the first person who delivered the prophecy that Aerys and Rhaella Targaryen, Dany’s parents and Jon’s grandparents would be the ancestors of the “Prince That Was Promised” but Rhaegar, Dany’s brother, grew obsessive over the prophecy, believing he was the Prince “That Was Promised”.
At this point, we just have to watch and see!
