Amid the heinous leak of Game of Thrones Season 7’s unaired Episode 4, Spoils of War all over the internet, GOT’s official Facebook page is revealing the title of its upcoming first episode. Game of Thrones S07 E05 is entitled Eastwatch. For sure, those who have watched the leaked “GOT” S07 E04 already have a hint on why E05 has this title.
This article contains potential spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 5.
Attached below is the screen grab of the said posting.
Blood of the Dragon
Meanwhile, IMDb had previously named another title for Episode 5, Blood of the Dragon. The posting also reveals that Game of Thrones S07 E05 will be directed by award winning American film, television, and theatre director Matt Shakman. Some of Shakman’s prized works are It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Fargo.
How Shakman will shape up the Blood of the Dragon remains a mystery. But based on his work, he will give way to a dragon’s narrative. When we speak of dragons in Game of Thrones, we either refer to the real dragon or to a person who belongs to House Targaryen.
In the show, the only Targaryens left is Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow whose paternity is revealed during the Tower of Joy episode. And from what transpired in Game of Thrones S07 E04, one of Dany’s dragons made an exceptional act. Thus, Episode 5 will most likely be about Jon, Dany, or any of her living dragons.
A Dragon might spill blood
According to Brain Pedia, a Reddit theory says that one of Dany’s dragon will die and will be resurrected by the Night King. The article singled out Viserion as the dragon to join the army of the dead. It will become an ice dragon to which the Night King will ride and confront the human army.

Some fans take this theory to the next level and come up with fake posters featuring the Night King riding his own ice dragon.

On Daenerys Targaryen
Some Game of Thrones fans who have watched S07 E04 believe that E05 will be about the death of Drogon. In the penultimate scene of Spoils of War,”Bronn successfully aimed a giant sphere arrow at Drogon’s upper right wing. The mother and dragon duo swiveled down downwards.
Drogon maneuvered back and burned down Qyburn’s dragon killer. However, this wasn’t the first time Dany’s favorite got hit. Thus, GOT S07 E05 may actually give us the show’s first dragon death scene.
On Jon Snow
Meanwhile, a longstanding theory suggests that Game of Thrones S07 Episode 5 might actually shed light to Jon’s parentage. Now that Jon already accomplished his mission in Dragonstone, he might travel back North where he’ll meet Bran and Arya.
Bran as the three eyed raven might actually reveal to Jon what he saw in the Tower of Joy. Meaning, Jon will eventually discover his Targaryen roots and the identity of his real parents – Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. Making the King of the North a dragon raised by wolves (and crows).
Game of Thrones S07 E05 airs next Sunday, August 13 on HBO worldwide.
