…he will fulfill Maggy the Frog’s prophecy for Cersei AFTER becoming a WHITE WALKER!
SPOILERS AHEAD! USE CAUTION!
There are a lot of theories circulating about who the “valonqar” is in Maggy’s prophecy about how Cersei (Lena Headey) will die. The portion of the prophecy that mentions this isn’t included in the show, so if you haven’t read the books here’s what you missed:
Cersei: Will the king and I have children?
Maggy: Oh, aye. Six-and-ten for him, and three for you. Gold shall be their crowns and gold their shrouds, she said. And when your tears have drowned you, the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.
If you Google any version of “who is the valonqar,” you’ll find theories for practically every character on Game of Thrones, but Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) are the most popular ones because valonqar is High Valyrian for “little brother” or “little sibling.” Cersei has been sure it was Tyrion forever, but since Jaime is technically minutes younger than her, too, he’s as likely a possibility.
The question I’ve been asking myself all season is, “What would push Jaime to kill his beloved sister/lover?”
Especially now that Cersei has told him she’s preggo with another of his children, it seems unlikely that Jaime would take her out, even if she threatened to use the rest of the wildfire to decimate King’s Landing, taking her the rest of the way into the territory the Mad King occupied when Jaime killed him.
HOWEVER! If the crew that updated everyone’s #squadgoals in the most recent episode when they went beyond the Wall to try to capture a White Walker to bring to Cersei in King’s Landing succeeds, contact between the Lannister twins and the walking dead is imminent. Whether it’s during this meet-and-greet or in the war that follows, if Jaime is turned into a White Walker, he’d definitely wrap his hands around Cersei’s throat and choke the life from her.
Furthermore, if this happens before she either gives birth or miscarries, that would affirm Maggy’s prediction that Cersei would only have three children.
What do you think? Discuss!
