Ancient Dothraki Prophecy Predicts ‘Game of Thrones’ Ending




In the most recent episode of The Hollywood Reporter and Post Show Recaps’ Game of Thrones rewatch podcast, there’s a discussion about something called ghost grass and how it might predict the end of the series.


Unless you’ve recently rewatched GoT, you probably don’t remember what ghost grass is. Ghost grass was first mentioned in the second episode of the series when Daenerys and Jorah are walking through the Dothraki Sea. The Dothraki Sea is actually a sea of ghost grass. Jorah explains to Dany:


In the Shadow Lands beyond Asshai, they say there are fields of ghost grass, with stalks as pale as milk that glow in the night. The Dothraki believe that one day, it’ll cover everything — and that’s the way the world will end.


The image of a pale whiteness devouring the living world certainly echoes the mantra “Winter is coming,” and, of course, evokes the onslaught of White Walkers. The Dothraki prophecy may be totally metaphorical, but it could also be literal. Who’s to say the show won’t end with an invasive species of grass causing widespread famine? After all, Westeros did just see a sudden influx of Dothraki hordes.

Did You See a Ghost in Last Week’s ‘Game of Thrones’?

Did you see a ghost in last week’s episode of ‘Game of Thrones?’ Fans online are convinced they did. A beady-eyed Reddit user, GrennsGal, spotted what is believed to have been the ghost of one very important (albeit dead) character. 


During the scene in which Arya and Brienne of Tarth engage in a friendly duel, fans are sure that the ghost of Catelyn Stark can be seen passing in the background. 



In the scene, Arya reminds Brienne that she ‘swore to protect both [her] mother’s daughters,’ as Sansa watches them from the balcony. As the two have this discussion, just prior to their friendly battle, a spectre bearing an alarming resemblence to Catelyn can be seen walking behind them.

In the books, an undead version of Catelyn does return. Her name is Lady Stoneheart and, The Independent notes, her “presence has been teased for multiple seasons now.”
