Now, by this point, we all know that Game of Thrones isn’t even remotely shy when it comes to killing off the major characters. It’s so bad that now it’s suspicious if a character lives for too long, and we start to speculate whether that character will hold the throne in the end.

There are also speculations which say that Tyrion Lannister might be the one who kills Cersei, since he is the “little brother.” However, a redditor now says that our deductions might be a bit too obvious.
