Titled 'The Iron Throne', season 8 episode 6 saw one major death as Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) was stabbed by Jon Snow (Kit Harington).

Daenerys' dragon Drogon arrived. After burning the Iron Throne, Drogon picked up Daenerys' lifeless body and flew off. East towards Volantis, according to Samwell Tarly (John Bradley).

According to some fans, High Priestess Kinvara (Ania Bukstein) will resurrect Daenerys, similar to how Melisandre (Carice van Houten) brought Jon Snow back to life.

So what backs this theory?

Firstly, Kinvara – whose only appearance is in season 6 episode 5 'The Door' – is the High Priestess of the Red Temple of Volantis. So if Drogon is looking for her, he's looking in the right place.

Secondly, the Priestess is a fan of Daenerys. In fact, she believes that the Targaryen is "the one who was promised".

"Daenerys has been sent to lead the people against the darkness in this war and in the great war still to come," she previously said.

Having said that, the great war has happened and Daenerys indeed played her part in helping the living overcome the dead.

Below is a selection of tweets of people holding out hope that Daenerys is still alive:
