Unfortunately True. The valyrian sword of Jon Snow will demolish during the greatest fight of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy world. During the Battle of Winterfell, Jon Snow will come face to face with the Night King. Whilst the fight, the Night King’s Ice Sword made from dragon’s bone will shatter Jon’s Longclaw to fragments. However, Rhaegal, one of the two dragons, will save him.
Apparently, Jon’s armor also gets damaged in the battle. After which, Gendry will immediately start working on the new breastplate for Jon. For that, he will use the remains of the Longclaw along with the dragonglass. Gendry will also carve a dire wolf and a three-headed dragon on the breastplate of Jon as he belongs to both of the houses.
2. Varys Will Betray Queen Danaerys.
Until last season, Tyrion and Varys fled from Kings Landing and served The Unburnt Queen Danaerys. However, the final season will show the actual face of Varys.
Varys will work with Qyburn and betray Daenerys by providing the information to Cersei. This rumor also got concrete with the scenes of Varys and Tyrion discussing the fate of seven kingdoms. Both of them have some difference in opinions. And according to Varys, Cersei can become the actual Queen as she is left with nothing to lose and she is more predictable than Daenerys.
Meanwhile, Tyrion bends more towards Daenerys to become the Queen of Seven Kingdoms, with right counsel and guidance. After the end of this conversation, Varys will write something for Kings Landing.
3. Winterfell Will Burn Into Ashes
The biggest battle of the decade, The Battle of Winterfell will take place at Winterfell, obviously. The fight will end but will result in the destruction of the Winterfell, the castle and everything. This will happen because of the dragons, Drogon and Rhaegal’s flames.
Even the name of Winterfell happened because last time The Long Night ended at that Winterfell. However, this time the winter will rise from here, and the demolition of Winterfell completes the cycle.
4. Jamie Would Give Widow’s Wail to Jon
It is quite likely that The Kingslayer, Jaime Lannister will bestow his sword, Widow’s Wail to Jon Snow, after his sword Longclaw shatter into pieces. This makes sense as well, because Jon Snow will need a new sword to fight with the Night King, and Ned Stark’s sword will find a way back to its master.
Although the Widow’s Wail and The Oathkeeper, both swords were made from House Stark’s ancestral sword, The Ice. Tywin Lannister gave Widow’s Wail to Joffery as a wedding gift and the Oathkeeper to Jaime. However, Jaime ends up giving Oathkeeper to Brienne of Tarth who eventually named the sword. And after the death of Joffery, Jaime took Widow’s Wail.
