Where Did Drogon Take Daenerys? This Line Gives Us a Really Good Clue

Game of Thrones may be over (well, sort of) but that doesn't mean that we've stopped talking about it. And one of the many questions that viewers were left wondering after the dramatic season finale was where did Drogon take Daenerys? 

Reminder (as if we could forget): Jon Snow aka Aegon Targaryen realizes that he can no longer continue to bend the knee to his aunt and queen Daenerys after she burns innocent people and massacres thousands in her quest to take the Iron Throne. Instead, he takes Dany's life with a dagger to the heart (after a steamy make-out sesh, of course). Drogon sees that his mom has died and takes his rage out on the Iron Throne, melting it into a giant pool of metal. He then tenderly picks Dany up and flies away with her. But where did they go?

During the council's gathering a few months later, we discover that Drogon was last seen "flying east." This seems like an insignificant detail until you realize that east of Westeros lies the continent of Essos, aka where the Targaryen line originated thousands of years ago. 

It actually totally makes sense that Drogon would want to return Daenerys to her motherland for her final resting place. Although, we can't be sure that he'll actually make it there. Upon hearing that the dragon is flying out east, the new king of the seven six kingdoms Bran the Broken says that he'll try to find him. Considering that Bran is the three-eyed raven, we're guessing it won't be too hard for him to track down a flying dragon.

Honestly? We hope that Drogon and Daenerys make it all the way home. After fighting for years to claim her place on the Iron Throne and failing just when she was so close, at least Dany can finally rest in peace. (We're not upset about the ending, not at all.)
