*WARNING SPOILERS for Game of Thrones

For one, the opening credits to this season hint at more dragons.
My theory is that there are going to be more dragons in Game Of Throne Episode 5. Drogon pissed off in season 4 and… https://t.co/YYNzTsTmPZ— Emma Swinton (@Emma Swinton)1557265071.0

Oh, and here's that moment, just for you:
What did he see?!
