You may recall Watchers on the Wall's spoiler back in August that Dany would not only make it to King's Landing in Season 7, she would find her way to the Dragonpit -- where the Targaryens of old kept their dragons -- now a giant ruin on Rhaenys's Hill in the city.
That news was taken to a new level this week, with scoop from Watchers on the Wall that Dany will meet and speak with two fan favorite characters:
Today, we received a spoiler update from a reliable source confirming that Daenerys will be at the Dragonpit, and that she'll be meeting with several familiar characters there. In addition to Dany's trusted allies such as Missandei, she'll be meeting with characters from other storylines. And that's where it gets really good. Our source tells us that Daenerys will have at least one scene where she's speaking with Davos Seaworth and Brienne of Tarth.
What could that mean for the future of Westeros? Are they hammering out an alliance? We don't have a context for the meeting yet. But loyal Stark advisers and possible messengers meeting with the Dragon Queen is incredibly promising.
Dany + Davos + Brienne = WIN. It's not clear if this particular scene will mark the first time Dany meets them or not. But we can picture Dany setting up shop at the Dragonpit and taking meetings with envoys, like Davos -- now clearly loyal to Jon Snow, aka The King in the North -- and Brienne -- still loyal to Sansa and the Starks. Perhaps the long-awaited Stark/Targaryen alliance will form right then and there, with or without a marriage. (We know Jon is both Stark and Targaryen but it's not clear if that information will find its way to Jon and others.)
Maybe if Brienne gets tight with Dany she can also somehow be a bridge between Dany and Jaime Lannister. Last we saw, Jaime was giving his sister an "oh sh*t" look at the end of Season 6, not exactly thrilled to see his twin on the Iron Throne. Maybe he'd rather see Dany in charge?
"Game of Thrones" Season 7 will keep filming into early 2017, with the premiere pushed back from its usual spring start to the summer.
