The last we watched Game of Thrones, was Season 6 ending with Cersei Lannister sitting on the throne. Many people in the seven kingdoms want her dead, and now more so than ever. We have gone over quite a few fan theories about how she will come to pass, with the biggest one being the Valonqar theory.
A new detail from the promos for Season 7 showing Cersei in the new costume, specifically the neck-piece that she is seen wearing, has raised the eyebrows of a few theorists, saying it could actually be a nod at the theory, says a report from Game of Thrones fan site, Winter is Coming. Read on!
You might remember Maggy the Frog, who talks to a young Cersei about her future, in the Season 5 premiere of the show, and sort-of warns her about what will come her way. The conversation is shown to go this way :
Cersei: “I’ve been promised to the Prince. When will we marry?”
Maggy: “You’ll never wed the prince; you’ll wed the king.”
Cersei: “But I will be queen?”
Maggy: “Oh yes, you’ll be queen…for a time. Then comes another. Younger, more beautiful, to cast you down and take all you hold dear.”
Cersei: “Will the King and I have children?”
Maggy: “The King will have 20 children, and you will have three…Gold will be their crowns; gold their shrouds.”
The little detail which makes us speculate over this theory was left out in the show. In the books, A Feast for Crows to be exact, Maggy goes on to tell Cersei :
“When your tears have drowned you, the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.”
In case you don’t know already, “valonqar” means “little brother,” in High Valyrian. It could be either Jaime, or Tyrion, or somebody else, according to latest interpretations. Cersei now sports a new spiked neck-piece, in her Season 7 costume, so it could be that she is preparing for someone to choke her anyway.
Yes, the part was omitted from the show, but there have been instances where the showrunners have done that, and then added easter eggs as nods to the omissions, so this might be just it. Cersei might die in a completely unrelated way, too, but we think that the neck-piece is a definite nod to the theory. What do you think? Tell us in the comments, down below!
