In the final episode of Game of Thrones, Drogon is taking Daenerys

After she was killed

And flying away. Is it mentioned anywhere in the show or in the books where they're headed and what Drogon plans to do with her?

    The last book was released before the show started, so the books are no help here. – Ian May 21 at 7:04

    @Ian maybe not directly, but maybe it's mentioned in the books what a dragon is doing when its "mother" dies, in general (I didn't read the books) – Shadow May 21 at 7:07

    @Ankit no details about other dragons in the books? (See my comment to Ian) – Shadow May 21 at 7:10

As mentioned by Sam

was last spotted flying east, toward....

So what is in the east of westeros?

From harpersbazaar

GoT fans speculate that Drogon was actually headed for Old Valyria, an ancient fallen city in Essos (which is east of Westeros, as Sam suggested) once ruled by dragonlords, and the ancestral homeland of House Targaryens and their dragons.

But elle suggested there are two options:

First, what we know about the Targaryens is that they are originally from Valyria, also known as Old Valyria, in Essos—which is, per its name, east of Westeros. This could be a likely destination for them both, seeing as it's where the Targaryens traditionally lived with their dragons.

Second, you know what else is in Essos? The Dothraki Sea. Drogon and his dragon siblings were born in the Dothraki territory, and he may be flying back to the place he feels is home.

But it's pure speculation as the books are far from completion and this event didn't occur yet and Sam's line was cut before completion about the Dragon's location.

  • Thanks, this makes sense. But what about the other part, of what the dragon plans to do with her? Hard to imagine a dragon burying a body, for example... :) – Shadow May 21 at 7:09
  • @ShadowWizard need to ask the dragon himself :D – Ankit Sharma May 21 at 7:10

    +1, I think it's also worth mentioning when Drogon was alone before he was seen by Tyrion and Jorah in Old Valyria, and it actually seems he had a nest in the Dothraki Sea where he brought Dany to. So the answer might actually be 'both', he is a fairly mobile beast. – KillianDS May 21 at 7:16
