The explosive finale of Game of Thrones Season 6 saw Cersei Lannister rise to power through blood and fire. While a recent batch of promotional images from season 7 featured Cersei on the throne with her vigilant twin brother alongside her, it is speculated that Jaime will kill Cersei. After all, he is the Kingslayer. It won’t be a shock if he turns out to be the Queenslayer too! Considering the fact that the show is way ahead of George R.R. Martin’s books, anything can happen in the last two seasons of Game Of Thrones. So let us take a look at one of the most convincing Game Of Thrones Theory: Jaime will kill Cersei.
- Jaime did not look too pleased with Cersei’s wild, fiery outburst that killed countless people leading to her ascendancy to the throne. He seemed angry and disappointed as he stared Cersei down in the Throne Room.
- Take a look at this conversation between Jaime and Brienne that happened while they were bathing in a hot tub- “Once again, I came to the king, begging him to surrender. He told me to bring him my father’s head. Then he turned to his pyromancer. “Burn them all,” he said. “Burn them in their homes. Burn them in their beds.” Tell me, if your precious Renly commanded you to kill your own father and stand by while thousands of men, women, and children burned alive, would you have done it? Would you have kept your oath then? First, I killed the pyromancer, and then, when the king turned to flee, I drove my sword into his back. “Burn them all,” he kept saying. “Burn them all.” I don’t think he expected to die. He meant to burn with the rest of us and rise again, reborn as a dragon, to turn his enemies to ash. I slit his throat to make sure that didn’t happen.” According to Jaime, after he found out that Aerys planned to use wildfire to burn King’s Landing (just like Cersei did), he took action to save innocent lives. He tried to get him to reconsider his plans, but Aerys refused to back down and so he slew him. No matter how much Jaime loves his sister, what she did is not something he could, or would, ever support. Cersei is indeed the mad queen.
- Cersei not only destroyed their city but afterward, she chose to seek revenge on Septa Unella instead of comforting their son, ultimately leading to his untimely demise.
- In the books, Cersei’s murder is prophesied by a witch. The prophecy stated, “The VA Lon QAR [High Valyrian for “little brother”] shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.” Cersei’s belief that Tyrion would be her downfall was actually responsible for much of her reprehensible treatment toward him. Cersei is to be killed by her younger brother. That narrows it down to Tyrion and Jamie. While the focus is supposed to be on Tyrion, a less known fact is that Jaime is about a minute or two, younger than Cersei. According to this Game Of Thrones Theory, this clue makes it seem possible that Jaime Lannister is going to snuff the life out of his older twin.
