Will Jaime Kill Cersei? This 'Game Of Thrones' Theory Makes An Interesting Point


Are you ready for this Sunday, Game of Thrones fans? Are you ready for whatever crazy twists and turns the Game of Thrones writers have planned for the Season 7 finale? Of course you're not ready. You never could be. There's going to be AN ICE DRAGONfor crying out loud. Still, you can try to feel kinda, sorta ready by arming yourselves with fan theories — like this theory that predicts Jaime will kill Cersei on Game of Thrones.

I know, I know. It sounds far-fetched at first. Jaime Lannister kill Cersei Lannister? Kill his sister/lover and pretty much the only person he seems to care about? Kill the mother of his unborn, incestuous child? But, hear me out. This theory isn't saying that Jaime would kill his sister out of anger, or malice, but rather one of those loving, noble murders. Anyone's who read Of Mice and Men knows what I'm talking about.

The theory comes from Reddit user giantgoose, who laid out some reasoning after Episode 4, "The Spoils of War" (right after Jaime tried and failed to kill Dany, and was saved from death-by-dragon by Bronn). The user wrote,


It makes sense when you think about it. After all, Jaime certainly hasn't shied away from killing rulers before. I mean, hello? Kingslayer? That's kind of his thing.

There's also this quote from a New York Times interview with actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to consider:

Jaime knows Cersei can't win, but he also knows she can't be reasoned with. So if she refuses to give up the throne, what choice would he have?

Well, we'll find out next week, when the Season 7 finale of Game of Thrones airs on HBO at 9 p.m EDT.
