Warning: Potential spoilers ahead.
Season 7 of Game of Thrones hit fans with more battles, death, and romance than possibly any other season yet. From acknowledging that Jon is a Targaryen to hinting at Sam as George R.R. Martin’s fictional self, Season 7 has been suspiciously good to its fans. But what will ensue in the final season? Here’s what fans predict so far.
1) Jaime will kill Cersei.
Based on the valonqar theory, many fans have speculated over the years that Jaime is destined to kill his twin sister, Cersei, and stop the Mad Queen like he did the Mad King before her. On the show, Cersei receives a prophecy from Maggy the Frog as a child. It states she will marry the king, become queen, have three children, and watch all of them die. In the books, it goes further, predicting Cersei will die by the hands of “the valonqar.” With the first three parts of the prophecy fulfilled, it stands to reason that the last part likely come true on the show. Valonqar means “little brother” in Valyrian.
While it’s possible this duty could still go to Tyrion, suggest Jaime’s storyline is much more fitting for the role of valonqar. He is closer to Cersei and has more alone time with her than anyone else. If he notices his sister/lover is taking her power too far, he’ll be in the perfect position to take her down, just as he did with tosave the city from burning with wildfire. This will, of course, require Jaime to have the courage to take down the person he loves most in the world.
