(Photo: Game of Thrones /HBO). Despite leaving Westeros upon declaring that her days of "whispering in the ears of kings" are over, the red priestess Melisandre will most certainly return for season 8 . Our next prediction is far grimmer and involves Jamie being responsible for Cersei's death.

Our watch has almost ended – the final season of Game Of Thrones is looming, and now that season seven's done, we've got a good idea about what season eight's going to involve.

George RR Martin is such an expert at foreshadowing (thanks to his predilection for visions and prophecies), we're pretty sure we've already been tipped off as to the final season's biggest moments.

Here's everything that's left to pay off – but, be warned, potential spoilers follow.

1. The Prince That Was Promised will be revealed

It’s worth noting that HBO’s big budget shows like Game of Thrones and Westworld are taking longer to make, which is - on the plus side - really raising the quality bar when it comes to production values. Whatever happens, though, season 8 will not be rushed.

What will happen in ' Game of Thrones ' Season 8 ? FANDOM has a few predictions for the final season of the series! A lot of the big stuff is hard to predict — we wouldn’t dare try to guess who will end up on the Iron Throne at this point — but that won’t stop us from speculating on Season 8 !

You can bet the reveal will be a massive part of season eight – and our money's on Jon.

In the books, Dany has a vision of Jon's dad Rhaegar, nursing a baby and saying the following. "Aegon... What better name for a king... He is the prince that was promised, and his is the song of ice and fire."

So... that pretty much confirms Jon... sorry, Aegon, is Azor Ahai, right? But what does that mean for the show?

Thoros explained it best: "According to prophecy, our champion will be reborn to wake dragons from stone and reforge the great sword lightbringer that defeated the darkness those thousands of years ago."

Game of Thrones Fan Theory Predicts Season 8 's Biggest Spoilers.

Warning: Contains plenty of spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7 so far, plus some inevitably wonky predictions for Sunday's finale. SEE ALSO: The biggest threat in ' Game of Thrones ' is something no one is prepared for.

So, we should expect all of the above in GoT's final season, because we haven't seen any of it yet. Or they might just drop it. They're only making six episodes.

2. Jon will find out about his heritage

Season 8 will almost certainly see Jon find out this information – including his real name (we really are going to have to get used to calling him Aegon) – and the fallout will be major.

Dany hasn't come this far to allow an usurper to take her claim to the throne, and Jon is too honourable to break his allegiance to the Dragon Queen. So, let's just say neither of them are going to be especially pleased to receive the news (even before you take the fact that they just bumped uglies into account).

Expect this big reveal to happen early on in the season, as it'll be a driving force of the final six episodes.

3. The valonqar prophecy will be fulfilled

She was right about Cersei marrying the King, right about a young and beautiful queen coming along to cause trouble (oh, hi Dany!) and right about Cersei outliving her three golden-haired children.

So, what's left? Nothing that's been mentioned in the TV series, but in the books there was one more prediction: "When your tears have drowned you, the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you."

Interestingly, Maggy predicted that Cersei would only have three children, so if she really is pregnant, there's every chance that the "valonqar" (high Valyrian for "little brother") will get in there before she's had a chance to give birth. Assuming that the show follows the apparent trajectory of the books on this pretty major plot point.

The long wait for Game of Thrones Season Eight has begun, but thankfully there's a lot of content to occupy fans' time. While a number of big secrets were And since fan theories seem to be writing this entire show at this point, it's important to pay close attention to those predictions out there—unless

A roundup of predictions for what will happen in ' Game of Thrones ' Season 8 . It makes sense logistically, too — the White Walkers are likely to get held up near the Wall for awhile, but Winterfell is the first big stronghold they'll come up against on their journey south.

Cersei thinks Tyrion's going to do it, fans thinks Jaime's going to do it, we think Euron could be the one (he is the youngest brother in his family, after all). But whoever does it, Cersei's days are numbered.

4. The Khal Drogo prophecy will be fulfilled

Everyone seems to have forgotten about this one, but it could have extreme significance in season 8 – especially if Dany does end up becoming pregnant by Jon, as many fans are predicting.

Season 7 made a big deal about how Dany can't have a baby, which, knowing how GoT works, means she's definitely going to fall pregnant soon. When she does, the prophecy from season 1's evil witch will come into play.

Mirri Maz Duur – the vengeful crone who killed Daenerys' baby in the womb – said that Dany's husband Khal Drogo would return to consciousness "when the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. When the seas go dry and mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. Then he will return, and not before."

But how will he return? A ghost? A vision? Or, will the Night King get his cold hands on every dead person in the world, and Dany will have to fight the wight version of her former husband?

Darren and I run down our feelings about season 7 as a whole (I give my “why S 7 critics are spoiled whiners” rant), plus make our S 8 predictions (Like Theon and Tyrion’s fates). Check out the EW Game of Thrones Weekly podcast here.

Hopefully George R. R. Martin will publish The Winds of Winter sometime this year and the story will overtake the show, but until that happens all we've got are our desperate predictions to fill the aching void of time until next May. We now know that there are only two seasons of Game of Thrones left

5. We'll see the Iron Throne covered in snow

Remember Dany's vision scene from season 2? If you don't, you can refresh your memory above.

Now we're heading into season 8, it's looking increasingly likely that it was a vision of the future – it's currently snowing in King's Landing and we're pretty sure the Night King's ice dragon would be capable of caving in the Red Keep.

So, expect the White Walkers to make it to King's Landing in season 8, which will probably wipe the smile off Cersei's face. (The vision could be metaphorical, of course – with Jon Snow covering the throne when he sits on it as King, but we'd say the literal translation is more likely.)

6. The 'dragon has three heads' mystery will be revealed

That’s my prediction for Game of Thrones season 8 guys. They were said to be sleeping for thousands big years. Now, suddenly, they woke up from their long sleep and began to march towards the Wall.

Game Of Thrones Season 7 is already complete, and Season 8 is forever away. Mix them with Jon Snow’s morals, Tyrion’s conscientious narration, Lady Olenna’s wit, and suddenly the entire season is one big clue as to what’s coming next in Season 8 . Here are the best quotes from Season 7 sure to

It goes as follows:

A man who looked like her deceased brother Viserys, but taller and with darker eyes, who says to a woman nursing a baby, "Aegon... What better name for a king... He is the prince that was promised, and his is the song of ice and fire." When the man's eyes meet Dany's, he says either to her or the woman with the baby, "There must be one more... The dragon has three heads." He then picks up a silver harp and begins to play.

Following the conclusion of Game of Thrones season 7 , let’s make some predictions about what will be coming in season 8 . 50 Biggest WTF Moments in Star Wars History.

Some fans feel that "the dragon has three heads" means that three people will ride Dany's dragons, but that theory has been killed by the arrival of the ice dragon. (Unless the Night King counts as one of the three? Possibly, we did see him ride it in the finale.)

Some fans think that it means there are three living Targaryens, and that's where things get more interesting. Now we know that Jon's actually Aegon, that means there are two 'dragons' knocking about. But who's the third?

Fans think it could potentially be Tyrion. Whatever happens, we'd still expect one more twist involving the Targaryen family in season 8, even if it is just as simple as Jon riding a dragon alongside Dany during a massive sky-fight with the Night King (which would be awesome).

7. Jaime will die in the arms of someone he loves

But one thing's for sure – this line's going to pay off in season 8. Sorry Jaime fans, your boy is doomed. Our money's on him killing himself and Cersei at the same time.
