game of thrones season 7 predictions jaime will kill cersei

Cersei Lannister received a prophecy when she was a girl that she would die at the hands of the “valonqar”, the word for “little brother” in High Valyrian. If Cersei dies this season, and the prophecy holds true (as we think it has so far) who is the “valonquar”?






Neither, High Valyrian has several gender neutral interpretations, it could be anyone

64% of people think if Cersei dies, Jaime kills her #GameofThrones Click To Tweet

Davos Seaworth says in the trailer, “If we don’t put aside our enmities and band together, we will die. And then it doesn’t matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne.” How does this play out?


Jon Snow meets with Cersei & Dany both to convince them to fight the Night King, not for the throne. Dany listens, Cersei doesn’t.


Cersei & Dany battle for control of Casterly Rock in the first half of the season & fight the Night King in the second


The Battle between Fire & Ice doesn’t happen this season. It’s a build up to season 8 and the last thing we see is the wall falling.

game of thrones season 7 predictions dothraki will fight lannisters for casterly rock

We’ve seen glimpses of a Battle for Casterly Rock in the season 7 trailers. Assuming Tyrion orchestrated the attack to weaken the power of the Lannisters over the Iron Throne because it’s the source of their gold, what do we think to be true of this situation?


The natural formation of Casterly Rock into the cliff allows for an extensive set of underground and secret passageways. Similar to the way Daenerys has conquered cities before, Tyrion’s knowledge of these pathways will lead them to victory.

They aren’t fighting for Casterly Rock. That’s a battle in the Crownlands that will allow Daenery’s Dothraki army to advance further towards Kings Landing.

The Lannisters will push back the Unsullied and settle into a siege. Danys first attempt at victory in Westeros will be unsuccessful.


tyrion says that he will use his knowledge as a former sewer master to lead them to victory, but Jaime forsees this and captures Tyrion


They aren’t fighting for Casterly Rock. Cersei sends her army against Dorne and Daenerys intervenes.

game of thrones season 7 predictions jon snow will bend the knee

Torrhen Stark relinquished his crown to become The King Who Knelt and the first Warden of the North when Aegon the Conqueror first came to Westeros with his dragons. Do we think Jon will do the same?


Daenerys allows Jon Snow to remain King in the North, in exchange for his allegiance and help in claiming the Iron Throne. In return, she helps in the fight against the Night King

Jon Snow will have learned the truth of his heritage by the time he meets Daenerys and bend the knee to his Aunt for the Starks to remain warden of the North

Jon Snow will not kneel to anyone who conquers with fire and blood and a Dothraki horde who would lay waste to innocent women and children in their path

Daenerys learns who Jon Snow is before he does and views him as a threat, and treats him accordingly

game of thrones season 7 predictions tyrion is a targaryen

One fan theory holds that Tyrion is actually the illegitimate son of Aerys “The Mad King” Targaryen, which explains why the dragons didn’t burn him alive in the Catacombs of Mereen. Do you think Tyrion is a Targaryen and/or the third head of the dragon?


Tyrion is a Targaryen and Daenerys’s quote foreshadows that like Aegon and his sisters, the reconquering of Westeros by the Targaryen dynasty will be done by her and her family.

Tyrion is NOT a Targaryen, but he is the third head of the dragon because they sense her trust in him

Nothing. The show is so removed from the books at this point, Tyrion could be a Targaryen in the books but not the show

Only one other character ever rides one of her dragons because one or more is lost in the battle between Fire and Ice

Tyrion is not a Targaryen, but the third head of the dragon is a long lost Targaryen who has yet to appear in the show and has so far only been referenced in the books.
