Another year, another magical season of Game of Thrones. After a long wait, we finally got to see another series of story arcs featuring some of the most compelling characters in television history. The finale of Season 7 was one for the history books, with several monumental moments setting up the final season. After all of those legendary events, there are still a few questions that weren't addressed, and we can only hope that they are answered in the final season.
Of course, the following contains plenty of spoilers for Season 7 of Game of Thrones.
Is Cersei Really Pregnant?
After seven years, only three things are certain: death, taxes and Cersei's lies. The finale reminded us yet again that Cersei will say and do anything to get her way, and a character like that really makes you question anything she's ever said. That includes her pregnancy claim.
Remember the prophecy, when a young Cersei was told that she would have three children and they would all die? That prophecy, which has been proven true, said nothing about a fourth child. Now it is possible that Cersei is cheating the system and proving the prophecy wrong, but there's another option that's just as likely.
In Season 7 we only saw Cersei admit her pregnancy to two people. The first was Jaime, when she was trying to get him to stay. The second was Tyrion, during their conversation following the Dragon Pit. What do both situations have in common? She had something to gain both times. It's entirely possible that she's faking her pregnancy to further manipulate those around her, but we won't know for sure until next year.
Will Jaime Kill His Sister?
Jaime Lannister is one of those rare characters that starts out being completely reviled, but then arcs around to become a fan favorite. He started out by pushing Bran out of a tower, and now he's riding North to help Jon and Dany fight off an army of undead ice soldiers. Now that Jaime is going full good-guy mode, a lot of viewers are waiting for him to take one more radical step.
If any of you have heard of the Valonqar theory, you know that Cersei is prophesied to die at the hands of her little brother. The obvious choice is Tyrion, seeing as the two have such a ripe hatred of each other. However, Jaime would be the far more poetic option.
We finally got to see Jaime snap back at Cersei after he realized that she wasn't keeping her word. Now, with the twins on opposite sides of the Great War, their disagreement could easily turn into something more violent. Perhaps Jaime will kill Cersei, and then himself, resulting in an incestuous Romeo and Juliet story.
Can Dany Have Children?
According to, as Dany calls her, the witch who murdered her husband, Dany cannot have children after that whole Khal Drogo incident back in Season 1. That may not be the case, if we listen to Jon's suspicions. We don't really have much proof for or against other than the witch's claims, so there still is a slight chance that Dany could raise some non-dragon babies in her future.
Since Jon and Dany are now involved, we could be seeing a new Targaryen baby sit on the Iron Throne. Judging by Tyrion's reaction to their involvement, more potential Targaryen offspring might cause trouble for his political plans. Oh yeah, speaking of Tyrion...
What Did Tyrion Say To Cersei?
The tension-filled conversation between Tyrion and Cersei was certainly one of the high points for the finale. Watching the two come head-to-head after so much time apart reminded us why we fell in love with the show in the first place. Their witty dialogue was filled with so much passion that I personally felt disappointed once the scene ended. I bet I wasn't the only one.
Tyrion risked his life by talking to Cersei so that he could convince her to agree to the truce. After Jon pulled his nobility stunt, Cersei wasn't in the kindest of moods. Not to mention that she wanted Tyrion dead for shooting their father with a crossbow. So why did they both leave that room on seemingly good terms?
That's the thing, we don't know. The scene ended with Tyrion learning that Cersei is "pregnant", and we never learned what happened after that. Did the two Lannister siblings form their own sort of truce? Did Cersei give in just to firther her own schemes? We'll have to wait until Season 8 to find out, but the details must be important.
Are Tormund And Beric Alive?
In true Game of Thrones, the finale ended with a bang. The newly ressurected Viserion stormed the Wall with the Night King and knocked a hole in the icy structure for the army of the dead to walk through. Tormund and Beric had front row seats to the fall of the wall, and we see them attempting to descend the wall as it crumbled.
This seems like an ensured death for the duo, but even if they found a safe point on the wall, how did the Night King not see them? And on the off chance that they were undetected, how do they escape the wall while surrounded by thousands of ice zombies? Hopefully they're still alive, but things aren't looking up for the two of them.
There's just over a year to go until we get all the answers that we need. That means it time to re-read the books, scavenge every internet theory and pump ourselves up with as much Game of Thrones goodness as we can because we have a long wait ahead of us.
