Game of Thrones Season 8 has come and gone but for the fandom, there will always be several unanswered questions, especially with how things ended in Westeros. For many characters, the happy endings we expected were farther from what actually happened! In the case of Daenerys Targaryen, Khaleesi may have won the last war against Cersei Lannister and proclaimed herself as the new Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, but her nephew and lover Jon Snow ultimately rained on her parade. In an act of utter betrayal, Jon staked a knife into the heart of the Mother of Dragons.

Drogon, on sensing his mother's last few moments comes crushing through the throne room and destroys the Iron Throne before someone else could take over from Dany. Drogon than cradles his mother and flies off to Volantis. Many theorised as to what happened to Dany's body and more specifically if Drogon ate his mother. Making a note of the same was Emilia Clarke, who posed the question at David Benioff and D.B. Weiss during Game of Thrones Season 8's DVD Commentary.

"Drogon’s not going to eat you. He’s not a cat. Did you see how gently he was nudging you?," David assured Emilia, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Furthermore, as to why Drogon destroyed the Iron Throne, Benioff revealed, "If [Dany is] not going to sit on it, no one’s going to sit on it."

After all, a son will always be protective of his mother!
