The Simpsons have done it again: the program accurately predicted the future, this time in relation to a great turn of Season 8 of Game of Thrones. This time, he did it with an episode of 2017 that was a pretty clear sending of the popular HBO program, which had a great development in his penultimate episode.
SET OF THRONES SPOILERS FOLLOW THEN.
In episode 5, "The Bells," Daenerys Targaryen did exactly what Varys was worried about: she went crazy queen, setting King & s Landing on fire with her last remaining dragon, Drogon. Even though the battle for the Iron Throne was won, he chose to destroy the city and kill his innocent civilians to the horror of Tyrion and Jon. It was a movement that fans did not necessarily expect; There were some occasional jokes, but Dany was generally positioned as one of the heroines of the show.
As a result, you may have seen something like this before: Specifically, the Simpsons episode of 2017, "The Serfsons" of season 29, also showed a dragon that destroys a city with its fire breathing abilities. The episode was a parody of Game of Thrones, and even featured the voice of actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of Jaime Lannister of Game of Thrones.
Dany's turn was predicted by some fans, and there could be evidence pointing to this possible result in the show, but it still remains a surprising turn (and for some, frustrating). In any case, this is far from the first time that The Simpsons have predicted something accurately. An episode of season 11 predicted that Donald Trump would become president, while an episode of season 10 declared that Disney would buy Fox. These apparently strange things ended up happening in real life.
"The Bells" set a new record of ratings for Game of Thrones with 18.4 million viewers. The episode was divisive and, for more information, you can check the Game of Thrones GameSpot review: "The Bells".
