A new Game of Thrones theory doing the rounds predicting that three of the most-anticipated moments to come will all take place in what is sure to be a packed season seven finale.
A Reddit user has predicted a climactic showdown like no other – hoping Jon Snow is successful in his expedition to bring a White Walker in front of Cersei in a bid to prove there’s currently more to worry about than who sits on the Iron Throne.
Cersei seemed open to the idea of meeting with Daenerys, Jon and company after discovering she was pregnant with Jaime’s baby. While the Queen is no doubt overjoyed to have seemingly proved the prophecy wrong – that she will have three children and they will all die – this still seems like a huge turnaround for her character. Surely she has something up her sleeve?
“So Cersei doesn’t strike me as the type to enter a truce for the safety and good of the realm. She would view that encounter as an opportunity to conveniently take out her remaining opponents. As a women who doesn’t believe in folklore (I.e. Dany being the ”unburnt“) and as poetic justice for the loot train battle and incinerating the Tarly’s, she sentences them both to death by wildfire. Also a nice parallel to when Dany’s father killed Ned Stark’s brother and father. The sentence is served but BOTH Dany and Jon remain unburnt after the wildfire subsides.”
Revelation number one – Jon Snow is a Targaryen confirming the long-standing R+L=J theory that was teased by Gilly in last week’s episode.
“The room is silent. Cersei starts demanding that her guards kill them, but everyone – stunned and in awe of what they just saw – start to slowly fall to their knees. Cersei goes batshit crazy, screaming “I AM THE QUEEN!” And demanding that someone kills them. Jaime, with a panicked look on his face, is talking in her ear, trying to talk sense into her. At the same time, the Mountain steps forward and the room holds their breath, but the Hound (with the guards holding him now on their knees) leaps forward to defend Dany and Jon. CLEGANEBOWL confirmed!! The Hound strikes down the mountain.”
Revelation number two – the long-anticipated duel between the two Clegane brothers.
“The Mountain’s death is a snapping point for Cersei, and she starts screaming at Qyburn to “BURN THEM ALL!” Qyburn starts to make a move but the Hound goes after him with Jon’s naked body in hot pursuit. Jaime, with a tortured/heartbroken expression looks at Cersei as she’s screaming “BURN THEM ALL.” He grabs her by the shoulders, shaking her to stop, but she keeps screaming. Then his hands move to her neck to silence her screaming. He fulfills Maggy the Frog’s prophecy as Cersei breathes her last.”
