Jason Momoa is having a really good year. In addition to his role as Aquaman in Justice League (and his upcoming solo film), Momoa is also returning to the small screen in the new season of Netflix's Frontier. But many fans were introduced to the badass through his role as Khal Drogo in the first season of HBO's Game of Thrones. And with the massively popular series coming to an end with its upcoming eighth season, fans have been hoping that Drogo may show back up again-- especially after Momoa was spotted visiting the cast on set. Now Momoa seems to have put it to rest, as the character has been dead for years.
I just showed up to see [producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss] and I just happened to see people on set. I haven't been over there in a long time. You just want to see your friends and you end up make headlines going, 'Drogo's back!' and I'm like, 'He's dead! He can't come back, it wouldn't work.'
Sorry, Dothraki fans out there. Because while Dany will continue using her army of Dothraki forces to conquer Westeros and battle the army of the dead, it looks like Khal Drogo won't be making any sort of reappearance.
Jason Momoa's comments to EW used logic to explain why Drogo won't be appearing in Season 8 of Game of Thrones; the guys been dead for a long time. Then again, it's not like Khal Drogo didn't already show up again post mortem. While Dany was trapped in the House of the Undying back in Season 2, Drogo appeared to her in a vision, alongside their unborn son. And with the show coming to a close next season, the fandom was hoping another vision might occur.
After all, Dany's journey in the House of the Undying has been heavily theorized since its release, especially as the show approaches its series finale. Another part of the vision saw Dany in the Throne Room in King's Landing, although it is destroyed and snowing ash. Many fans believe that Dany will burn down Westeros' capitol in her final battle against Cersei, making her vision come true. Therefore, another scene with Drogo doesn't seem completely out of the question.
Then again, Dany is opening herself up to another romantic interest lately: Jon Snow. The two were seen connecting throughout all of last season, with their flirtation becoming physical in the season finale. But there's a catch: they're actually related and don't know it. While Targaryens have been fond of incest in the past, it's not clear of Jon and Dany are going to feel the same way once Sam and Bran break the news in Winterfell.
