HBO’s Game of Thrones is entering into its last lap with the eighth season comprising of just six episodes. It is expected to hit the small screens in the first half of next year. Hence, the fans have already begun to weave crazy but interesting theories that are difficult to ignore.
At the end of season 7, we saw Night King had begun his invasion of Westeros as he razed the wall to the ground and his massive army of the dead is on its way to the North. Night King will be the central threat in the last season, but there is another human threat i.e Cersei Lannister who is Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, playing a more sinister game. Her brother cum husband Jaime Lannister left her to help North fight the Night’s King army and save the realm.
There are plenty of theories out there concerning Cersei. The one that is most prominent is “Valonqar” prophecy by Maggie The Frog who said that one of her brothers (Tyrion or Jaime) will be the one to kill her. Also, Cersei’s name is in the Arya’s kill list, it’s possible that she wears the face of either and kill her.
But the latest crazy theory is stating that Cersei could end up as the victim of Night King as he would invade King’s landing when he is done with the rest of the country. Another possibility is she willingly agree to be Night Queen. Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark was asked about this on a morning show and she said: “Oh, I have seen those pictures. What a power couple.” Well, she may be joking ofcose but given how power-hungry Cersei is, we won’t rule this out just yet.
Nicolaj Coster-Waldau’s aka Jaimie Lannister broke off ties with Cersei and left her for good. He is teasing as to what might happen with Jaime:
“The fear is that I would be turned into one of those undead, that would suck. You know some of the main characters are going to get turned. There are going to be some blue-eyed main characters running around. And, god, I hope it’s not me.”
Here’s what he said about Cersei:
“She has so little interest or regard for the rest of humanity. It’s all about just her power… He is truly disgusted by the way she acts. At this point, the threat is clearly real. He believes what he sees, he believes his brother, he believes Jon Snow, he believes Daenerys when she says there’s an army of 100,000 marching. That is so much bigger than anything they’ve ever faced… I think that at this point, even the fact that she’s pregnant, there are bigger things at stake because it’s true what he says,’“No matter what, if the dead wins, there will be no child.’ There is no choice.”
When asked if the show is shooting multiple endings, he said:
“Do you think that’s true. It seems really stupid to me. I mean if it’s true I don’t believe it, but I don’t know, maybe.”
“I mean, I haven’t read the script, so unless they will show several endings that could be a twist, they’re not going to waste that money. They know how expensive it is to shoot. You’re not going to waste $100,000 a day to shoot something you’re not going to use. It’s not going to happen.”
Well, let’s hope for an epic final season of this greatest fantasy saga.
