ice dragon, wight dragon, or Other/WW dragon

If it happens that the NK gets a dragon, and for now we can assume that's an accurate leak, I hope George clarifies whether or not a wight dragon is an ice dragon. Perhaps the NK reanimates a dragon in a manner differently than a typical wight thing. Perhaps the dragon is not completely dead and he turns it like he turned Craster's sons into WW? I suppose dialogue on the show could also tell us what it would be. Of course (they) can call it whatever they want. I bring it up because I still think it's possible that ice dragons were a different species or something altogether different.

One of the reasons I think an ice dragon could be different than a wight dragon is because legends say that they were typically much larger. It's written in The World of Ice & Fire, "These colossal beasts, many time 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 breathe flame, ice dragons supposedly breathe cold, a chill so terrible that it can freeze a man solid in half a heartbeat." It also states that ice dragons supposedly melt when slain as no actual proof of their existence has ever been found. If an ice dragon is simply a reanimated "Valyrian style" dragon into a wight dragon why would it be many times larger? It should not continue to grow as an undead. I also wouldn't think their wings would be translucent but rather cold, bloodless flesh.

On the other hand, If a 'standard' dragon were turned into a WW dragon then the descriptions seem to fit better; we can assume that the WW grow (Craster's sons) and grow larger, stronger and faster than typical men, icy breath, appearance, melt or dissipate when slain. I then think that if an ice dragon was either a wight or a WW dragon and not a separate species, it would have been a "Walker Dragon."

If that leak does happen and it's not clarified I think everybody is going to call it an ice dragon no matter what... I guess it doesn't matter really but it would be nice to KNOW.

She's not part of it. She arrives at the end to rescue everyone, but I don't know what makes her go there. I think Viserion gets shot with a spear.

I'm hoping that Tyrion has a chance to ride this dragon before the WWs take it down!

Viserion will be a wight dragon, an ice dragon is something different.

The Night King will throw a spear into Viserion, he falls into an icy lake and the wights will drag him out and the Night King will reanimate him.
