Spoiler Warning: This article contains a sort of half-spoiler and a lot of speculation, so if that's not what you're looking for, warg on.
George R.R. Martin knows what he's doing when it comes to creating complex and fascinating characters. He's the master of showing bad guys with good sides and good guys with compromised morals. And maybe no character has shown such dramatic growth throughout the five books and six seasons of #GameOfThrones as Jaime Lannister.
If you haven't seen the teaser for 'Game of Thrones' Season 7, check it out right now!
Sometimes it seems like the fallen golden boy Jaime Lannister has the short end of the stick in comparison to his other siblings. He's hardly a fan favorite like his little brother Tyrion, and he's no where near as vicious a criminal mastermind as his sister-lover Cersei. Coster-Waldau talked to the Daily Beast about what it's been like for Jaime's development throughout the years and into Season 7 — and he nearly let a juicy spoiler slip:
"That’s what I like about Jaime: he’s lost his arm and just his presence used to be enough to sway people, and he doesn’t have that anymore—but he’s still got his mind. He’s not like his sister and brother, but he’s been on the battlefield his whole life, and knows about people’s weaknesses and loving someone unconditionally—because he loves his sister unconditionally. Plus, there are no other suitors. Well, that’s not true… but he has to step up and take his father’s place. Wow, I was about to reveal something from Season 7 and thought, 'What am I doing?'"
What are you doing, Jaime?! I mean, Nikolaj?! Let's talk about what it is you were going to reveal!
Assuming he was about to say a little bit too much just before he trailed off, it seems like he was about to talk about the eligible bachelors of Westeros that might be making a play for the fair queen Cersei in Season 7. Let's talk about the lucky gents that could hope to put a ring on the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms.

1. Euron Greyjoy
Assuming that the Mother of Dragons is rejects Euron's *ahem* proposal, that leaves this brother-killer and newly crowned King of the Iron Islands in the market for a bride. That massive fleet of ships he has might make a very welcome wedding gift when Cersei finds out that a queen younger and more beautiful than she is making a bee line for King's Landing to cast her down and take all that she holds dear.
2. Edmure Tully
There's basically not even a wight's chance in hell that Cersei would ever actually love the weak and dishonored Lannister prisoner Edmure Tully, but he is the ruler of the Riverlands, and could be a viable choice for tactical reasons. There's the small matter of the fact that he's already married, but when has Cersei ever had a problem killing innocent people for her own benefit?
3. Jaime Lannister
Brother-sister marriages were highly popular for kings and queens back in the days of the Targaryen Dynasty, and now that Cersei is the queen with no other men to stop her, she can do whatever the seven hells she wants. She could just go ahead and marry Jaime in front of gods and country and promise to deep-fry any dissenters in a vat of wildfire. Problem solved.
