'Game of Thrones' season 8: Cersei Lannister's death is believed to come by the hands of a younger sibling, what if it's neither Jaime nor Tyrion?
Cersei Lannister's death may or may not come in 'Game of Thrones' season 8, but if it did, we think it should be at the hands of this northerner, and no, we are not speaking about Arya
With the premiere of 'Game of Thrones' just days away, we wondered who would die in the final season and how their deaths would come about. One person who is most probably going to die is Cersei Lannister, but at whose hands will it be and how brutal is it going to get? Most of you have already figured that it would be at the hands of either Jaime or Tyrion Lannister. Many of you, would have probably come across the 'Valonqar prophecy', something that is mentioned in the book and vaguely referenced on the show, and inferred that Tyrion is probably the one to end his sister's life. But what if the prophecy was not to taken literally?
The prophecy in exact terms is: "Oh, aye. Six-and-ten [children] for him, and three for you. Gold shall be their crowns and gold their shrouds. And when your tears have drowned you, the Valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you". 'The Valonqar' is something that is mentioned only in the books and it literally means little brother in High Valyrian.
This happens to be one of the reasons Cersei has come to hate her dwarf brother Tyrion so much. But, of course, after seeing Jaime change over the seasons, and now that he has realized what his sister is capable of doing for power, many have also theorized that he might, after all, be the one to kill his sister/lover and become a Queenslayer. But what if 'the Valonqar' as a reference to siblings was more loose?
That would then include Jon Snow and Bran Stark. Why? Because Sansa Stark was once married to Tyrion. Do you recall Cersei backstabbing Jon Snow even after he brought proof of a white walker to form an alliance against the Night King? This was also when Jaime realized the truth about his sister. She agreed to collaborate with the Starks because she wanted them to have a false notion of a safety net, to decimate their numbers, thereby ensuring victory for her. Back in Winterfell, Sam and Bran discuss Jon's parentage - the fact that he is a legal heir to the throne as a true Targaryen because he is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.
With Jon and Daenerys having formed a truce, the fight has to be between Cersei and the Targaryens and Jon Snow could gift his lady love with Cersei's life and a true claim to the throne since he has never really been interested in ruling the seven kingdoms. It wouldn't be too hard for Snow in the face of the betrayal that Cersei has in store for them, and with the white walkers marching towards Winterfell.
