New York (The Verge) — No, “The Long Night” did not just prove Game of Thrones’ Night King is a Targaryen theverge.com/2019/4/29/1852….
Game of Thrones may never answer “Why is the Night King immune to fire?” but we do know one thing for sure: it’s not because he’s a Targaryen.
The Night King's ability to control and ride a dragon has been inspiring theories since season 7. For some, his use of a particular symbol confirmed those theories. The “ignores dragon fire” thing set off further speculation because that combination of abilities seems familiar. There’s another fireproof, dragon-riding character on the show: Daenerys Targaryen. With all of the last-minute parentage reveals Game of Thrones has been throwing at fans lately, was the show trying to hint at a Star Wars-esque reveal of the Night King as some ancient Targaryen ancestor? — Chaim Gartenberg/@verge
