This weekend the long-awaited final season of Game of Thrones is set to start.
The program comes to an end after this season, so fans are already speculating about the end of the story. Who will eventually end up on the Iron Throne? These are the craziest, but also the most interesting theories!
Cersei Makes It To The Final
Cersei Lannister, who was on the Iron Throne at the end of season 7, will most likely make it into the final episode of season 8. Actress Lena Heady, who plays the role, dropped during an interview that “everyone was crying when reading the final script.”
Given the high level of security on the set, that means that she is also in those last scenes. Actors have only been shown the text of their own scenes and scenes with which they are directly involved for several seasons. That to prevent the story line from leaking.
Jaime Will Murder Cersei
However, fans suspect that Cersei will find her end at the hand of her own brother and incestuous lover, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Viewers suspect that he will commit a coup, since he clearly no longer agreed with her way of governing in the previous season. The only way the tyrannical Cersei would allow that … is over her dead body.
In addition, such an event would fit perfectly into the prophetic prediction that appears in the show. That prediction claimed that all children of Cersei would die prematurely – and that came true. The rest of the prediction states that Cersei will be killed by her “Valonqar,” which means “little brother.”
In the beginning, most fans assumed that it was about the dwarf Tyrion Lannister, because he and Cersei no longer get along. She tried to kill him several times. He is also the only brother who is a few years younger than Cersei.
Sam Is The Narrator
One of the more ambitious theories – given that there is not much evidence for it – originated on the social network Reddit. There they are convinced that Samwell Tarley will appear in the very last scene of the show. He would reveal himself as the narrator of all the events of the past seasons – fans think he might be telling his grandchildren everything. And who should play that old version of Sam? You guessed it: writer George R.R. Martin himself.
Tyrion Lannister Is A Targaryen
Rumor has it that not only is Jon Snow is a family member of Daenerys, but Tyrion also belongs to the same bloodline. There is quite a bit of evidence for that within the TV series: the fact that Jon Snow and Tyrion are the only characters who can approach the Daenerys dragons, besides Daenerys themselves.
The Targaryens are known for their bond with mythical beings, so the fact that Tyrion single-handedly defied the dragons without being eaten could mean that he is not a Lannister.
In addition, there is also the fact that Tywin’s alleged father, Tywin Lannister, has always despised him. He even told Tyrion shortly that he was “not a son of his.” Fans think “The Mad King” Aerys Targaryen – the father of Daenerys – had an affair with Tywin’s wife, from which Tyrion was born.
