Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for “Game of Thrones” season seven.
Though many of our favourite “Game of Thrones” characters made it out alive from beyond the Wall Sunday night, Daenerys suffered one big loss which may cost Westeros dearly in episodes to come.
Fans were caught off guard when the Night King swiftly took down one of Dany’s dragons with an ice spear like it was nothing. But the big shock of the night came when Viserion was pulled from the lake and his eyes turned a cold ice blue when he was transformed into a White Walker or wight dragon by the Night King.
Now that the Army of the Dead has a super weapon at its disposal, fans have one big question. How exactly does the flame of an undead dragon work?
Most are wondering whether Viserion will be able to breath fire or ice.
But also, if he breathes fire, will it be red or blue?
Or maybe it’s none of the above.
And how will Viserion’s powers affect other people? Will it kill them or make them into instant members of the undead army?
Many are pretty convinced that it’s not good news for the Wall.
While we still have a lot of questions about what powers Viserion will now have, we’re pretty sure of one thing fans are also asking about: Viserion is not an ice dragon. You can read my colleague Kim Renfro’s full breakdown of what to expect from wight/White Walker Viserion and what his entry on the show means for the Night King’s army and our heroes here.

Does Viserion breathe blue fire or ice? I’d just go with fire. ????

I imagine the opening scene of next week’s episode will be Viserion just doing this to the Wall and blowing it away. #GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/wj0wr4QUja

What if the Wall would have been enough to repel the Night King’s army until they got the dragon.
Self fulfilling prophecy.
