With Season 7 currently filming in Ireland, Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers are abounding all over the Internet. Now, it seems as though none other than Cersei Lannister will meet her final fate in this season…but by who? And why?
Warning: this post contains spoilers. Please do not read this post if you do not wish to read Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers.
According to the devoted fansite, Winter is Coming, the biggest of all Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers have been revealed: Cersei Lannister will die, brutally, at the hands of none other than her brother/lover Jaime Lannister. While many of the characters in the show have been given plenty of reason to kill Cersei (Daenerys, because she wants the Iron Throne; Tyrion, because he’s been taking her garbage from the day he was born), Jaime has the three biggest reasons of all: Joffrey, Tommen, and Myrcella. While Cersei doesn’t seem to care, in the least, that her children have died before her — because, hey, that’s the price you pay for doing Iron Throne business — Jaime was absolutely devastated by his children’s untimely demise (and we saw this when he freaked out over Myrcella’s death).
Further adding credence to this spoiler is that, in the book series, the prophecy predicted that Cersei would be killed by her younger brother. And while the obvious choice seems to be Tyrion that will pull the proverbial trigger, remember that Jaime is also younger than Cersei, if only by a few minutes.
Speaking of the book series, Christian Today confirmed the Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers speculation that author George R.R. Martin will probably be more involved with the show than in seasons past. Martin has also suggested that the latest book in the A Song of Fire and Ice series — the series that inspired the Game of Thrones TV series — called The Winds of Winter will be released “sometime in 2017,” though no official date has been released as of yet. And though there’s additional speculation that there will be a Game of Thrones prequel — which may lead to yet another series by HBO when Game of Thrones concludes its eighth and final season — his first priority is to the long-overdue The Winds of Winter and its followup, A Dream of Spring.
Moreover, fans who are worried about Martin’s failing health — he did, after all, recently turn 68 — can take comfort in knowing that Martin said he has every intention of finishing the book series before spinning off this mortal coil.
Finally, Elite Daily delivers us some Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers courtesy of Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the show. Sophie has been very chatty with the press about Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers since the show first aired, and in her latest “spill,” she indicated that not only will some of the cast members not make it to the final season, but that the fans will not know where Sansa Stark’s loyalties lie in Season 7.
This, according to Elite Daily, suggests that Sansa Stark may not be done with her killing spree that she began in Season 6. (Although, let’s be fair: Ramsey “The Bastard” Bolton absolutely deserved to meet his demise in that brutal fashion.) The question is, who will she kill? The obvious choice, of course, is Jon Snow — but there are certainly others on Sansa’s “hit list” that may meet their untimely demise. According to Sophie, however, we just may see that she’s a “true Stark,” after all because we’ve seen the evolution of her character in just six short seasons, and that evolution will continue further with this season.
