Viserion's Newly Blue Flames, Explained
This post contains spoilers forGame of Thrones.
Sunday's season finale ofGame of Thronesended with Viserion, now some sort of undead ice dragon, burning down the Wall with a stream of blue flames. This was fun to watch and all, but it left a lot of people wondering justhowthis happened. Was that ice coming out of his mouth, or was it fire? If it was ice, how did it "burn" down the wall? And if it was fire, why was it blue? These might seem like moot points when you're dealing with (1) a dragon that has (2) been killed and resurrected by (3) the leader of an undead army, but still, inquiring minds want to know.
The first question: What kind of beast is Viserion now that he's a zombie? Twitter immediately started referring to him as an "ice dragon," but it's not clear that that's what he actually is if you're going by the works of George R.R. Martin. Here's a passage fromA World of Ice and Firethat describes ice dragons:"Of all the queer and fabulous denizens of the Shivering Sea, however, the greatest are the ice dragons. These colossal beasts, many times larger than the dragons of Valyria, are said to be made of living ice, with eyes of pale blue crystal and vast translucent wings through which the moon and stars can be glimpsed as they wheel across the sky. Whereas common dragons (if any dragon can truly be said to be common) breathe flame, ice dragons supposedly breathe cold, a chill so terrible that it can freeze a man solid in half a heartbeat."
This doesn't sound quite right as a description for Viserion, who doesn't meet any of these qualifications except for the blue eyes (and even those aren't "crystal"). But if he's still a regular dragon, only dead, why are his flames blue?
Motherboard has a compelling theory that Viserion is breathing a compound called dicyanoacetylene, which would burn hotter (and bluer) than the flames he spewed as a living dragon. The hotter flames might also cause the Wall to vaporize, which is what happened — regular flames would have melted it, resulting in large quantities of meltwater. If all that's true, it means Viserion is now more dangerous than Drogon and Rhaegal, who are presumably breathing regular old fire.
Or it could all just be magic.
