Game of Thrones Season 7: Could This Unholy Alliance Work?

At the end of season 6 of Game of Thrones, we had Daenerys Stormborn begin her invasion of Westeros with the huge armada, the Greyjoys, the unsullied, the Dothraki horde and the three dragons. She made Tyrion Lannister as her “Hand of the Queen”. Lord Varys successfully forged a “Fire & Blood” alliance with House Martell and House Tyrell who are hell-bent on taking revenge against Cersei Lannister who is practically a Mad Queen with no allies. She burned down the Sept of Baelor using wildfire killing everyone inside, and as a result, King Tommen committed suicide by jumping out of the window.


What is Cersei’s game plan? She is the Queen, but for how long can she sustain it. The Crown is deeply in debt, Tyrells control the grain supplies, she has no allies anywhere and people hate her. It is increasingly clear that Cersei Lannister can’t possibly hold her position for long as Dany’s massive forces are marching towards Westeros. She needs a strategic ally to even put up a valiant fight, let alone win against Daenerys Targaryen. It is now confirmed by a major Game of Thrones website that an alliance between Cersei Lannister and Euron Greyjoy (brother of Balon Greyjoy) is inevitable.

Game of Thrones

On one hand, Lannister armies can raid the critical points of the “fire & blood” alliance. On the other hand, Euron Greyjoy will have his 1000 ships ready, he can overwhelm Dany’s forces with an aggressive sea attack. We know that Euron is a well-trained naval fighter whereas Dothraki dread fighting in the seas. He may do some real damage given the element of surprise. If the show decides to do Dragon-binder storyline, then Euron can literally control dragons and make things very difficult for Daenerys. Well,…we will wait for season 7 for all the answers.
