‘Game Of Thrones’ Fan Theory Could Mean Serious Trouble For Cersei Lannister
We are 87 long days away from the Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere on HBO. This will be the second to last season, and as I’m sure you’ve heard by now it will also be shorter than previous seasons with only 7 episodes.
There are so many convergent plot lines in Game of Thrones at the moment it’s almost impossible to think that we as fans will have any semblance of closure in the next two seasons. But I trust HBO, and the showrunners to do this right.
A few weeks ago, the actor who plays Jamie Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, almost let a potentially major spoiler slip but stopped just short of revealing it. He did leak enough to pique the interest of fans, though, and there’s been a lot of speculation over what he was talking about…Potential spoilers ahead…but it’s all just speculation.
I mention this now because he’s technically the younger brother of Cersei Lannister. Even though they are twins he was born second. And this fan theory that popped up on Reddit is one that revolves around Cersei’s prophecy:
To quote the end of Cersei’s prophecy, “When your tears have drowned you, the Valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.”
Since the Valonqar is Valyrian for the little brother, most people think that Jaime, or maybe Tyrion, will kill Cersei. I think that in a show as unpredictable of Game of Thrones, this is too obvious. The Valonqar means “the little brother”, not Cersei’s little brother. So Cersei’s murderer could be anyone who is a little brother. But saying this in Valyrian suggests that the person will have Valyrian blood.
The Targaryens have Valyrian blood. Jon Snow is a Targaryen. He is the little brother of Rhaenys and Aegon. He wants to kill Cersei. I think it is very likely that he does.
I doubt this is the first time someone on the Internet has proposed this idea, but we’re pretty late in the Game of Thrones here and there are a limited number of episodes left to wrap this up. We know that Jon Snow’s storyline is taking him away from the wall, and we know that Cersei will die.
Personally, I think that it will end with Bran becoming one of the White Walkers, potentially even the Night’s King. I think that he’s the little brother who will kill Cersei, but a lof of things need to transpire between what’s happening now and that event coming to pass.
What do you bros think? Is it going to be Jon Snow who takes out Cersei? Sound off down below in the comments…
