Game of Thrones season eight seems like a long way off at the moment, yet that hasn’t stopped fans from theorising over what’s to come.
Very little is know about what the writers and creators have in store for Game of Thrones viewers in season eight, but it’s bound to be explosive, bloodthirsty, shocking and potentially very upsetting.
Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) is one of the many people vying for the Iron Throne, and she’s backed up by a pretty impressive array of characters.
People such as Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) and Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) have all sworn allegiance to the Mother of Dragons.
However, could Daenerys end up being the victim of a major betrayal in the upcoming season?
Viewers have theorised about who could end up betraying Daenerys in season eight, and one name that popped up was Varys’.
“[On] two different [occasions] Varys talks about how he hates magic and the red priests,” writes Jamesshrugged on Reddit.
The user continues: “Once at the black water and once when he shows Tyrion the sorcerer.”
“Daenerys is allied with the red priests now and is seen as their saviour while Jon was raised from the D€ad by a red priest.”
“Will Varys turn on them because of this, or is he over it?” the user questions.
