The ‘Game of Thrones’ theory that Jaime will kill Cersei is a good one, but Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has one major issue with it. His reasoning is solid, so does this lend more credibility that Tyrion will be the one to possibly kill his sister, or could Cersei die at the hands of someone else entirely?
“It’s a theory … but it has a beautiful, romantic, tragic thing [to it],” Nikolaj Coster-Waldau told Huffington Post. “It’s probably too obvious.”
Everyone who obsesses over Game of Thrones knows about the Jamie kills Cersei theory. The theory states that Jaime will be the one to “choke the life” out of Cersei, based off of a prophecy about Cersei in the A Song of Ice and Fire novels. The prophecy from the books states that “the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.” Most people assume “valonqar” to be High Valyrian for “little brother,” that’s why the theory is going with Jaime, who is Cersei’s twin but was born after her.
This part of the prophecy has not been revealed on the show, but what Maggy predicted in season 5 would happen — all three of Cersei’s children would die, etc. — has happened so far. Even if the valonqar aspect of the prophecy isn’t revealed on the show, the theory could still come true. Jaime killing Cersei would be poetic, since he was the one to kill the Mad King to save King’s Landing. Maybe he’ll have to do the same with Cersei. Then again, Tyrion could get his revenge on Cersei and kill her. After all, he did kill his own father.
However, Cersei could die at the hands of someone else who is not a Lannister. Cersei is a walking target now she’s crowned herself the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. She’s pissed off a lot of people with her ruthlessness. She’s still on Arya’s kill list, and Daenerys is coming for the Iron Throne. Let the games begin.
Game of Thrones season 7 will premiere July 16 on HBO.
