This New Game of Thrones Theory Predicts How Cersei Will Die
There are several theories floating around the Internet speculating how some of your favorite Game of Thrones characters will die. Some of them are far-fetched, but a few actually have merit—like this new one from Redditor Namez Are Hard that centers on Cersei.
If you remember from season five, we learned that when Cersei was little, she visited a witch, Maggy the Frog, who made all sorts of (accurate) predictions about her life. Maggy prophesied that Cersei would marry the king and have three children, who would all die. And this happened. The only thing that hasn't yet is the final component of Maggy's fortune: "The valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you." "Valonqar" is High Valyrian for "little brother," so fans have been convinced for seasons that either Jaime or Tyrion would eventually kill Cersei.
But Namez Are Hard has a different idea. They think it's actually Cersei's unborn baby who will kill her during childbirth. This, of course, is hinged on (1) Cersei actually being pregnant and (2) her having a boy. Namez Are Hard's theory checks out otherwise. "She is killed by the valonqar. Nowhere in Mag's prophecy does it say HER valonqar, just THE valonqar," the user writes. (Cersei's hypothetical baby boy would technically be the little brother to her three deceased children.)
Several fans seem to think Cersei is lying about being pregnant. In the first episode of season eight, she was seen drinking a glass of wine. Of course, she could just be drinking through her pregnancy, but she notably turned down wine last season because she was expecting. So many mysteries!
Of course, we'll find out these answers definitively at some point this season. Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9:00 P.M. ET on HBO.
