(WARNING: Potential spoiler ahead (a really big one). If you don't want to speculate on what's going to happen in Season 6 of Game of Thrones, I suggest you stop reading right now.)

A few days ago, a picture from one of the locations Game of Thrones is filmed at was leaked, and the Internet has gone crazy over it. The photo shows Margaery Tyrell, Cersei Lannister and -- this is where it gets interesting -- Daenerys Targaryen together in King's Landing.

This has naturally gotten people to think that Daenerys finally managed to get herself to King's Landing and show these basic bitches how it's done. The three are shown in full costume, and if you ask me, it also looks like they are very much in character. Just look at Cersei!

Just a photo shoot?

Despite what it looks like, the three queens might not be filming a scene for the upcoming season. If we are to believe the trusty Watchers on the Wall, the reason for this surprising sighting is actually a photo shoot. It wouldn't be the first time this happened, there are several photos where the Game of Thrones cast get together despite the fact that their characters are miles away from each other on-screen.

But what if it's real?

If this is real, and we actually see Daenerys in Westeros next season... HOLY SHIT! My nerd feelings can't handle the anticipation. The show has pretty much caught up with her storyline from the books, so no one really knows what's going to happen. So what are the chances Daenerys will hang out with Cersei and Margaery?

There is actually one thing that could link them all together. In case you don't remember, the first thing we saw in Season 5 was a flashback showing a young Cersei visiting a witch. The witch, known as Maggy the Frog, can foretell the future, and Cersei asks if she will be queen. Maggy replies that yes, she will be queen, until there comes another, younger and more beautiful, who will cast her down and take all she holds dear. Here's a clip of the scene where you can hear the rest of the prophecy:

Margaery or Daenerys?

So who is this young and beautiful queen? Cersei believes this to be Margaery — and does everything in her power to get rid of her. Margaery is still crowned queen, and it appears as if the prophecy has come true. However, could the younger and more beautiful queen actually be Daenerys?

In the books, Margaery is only ever described as "pretty," while Cersei is described as "strikingly beautiful." If Margaery is not actually prettier than Cersei, she doesn't fit the prophecy. Daenerys, on the other hand, is described as the fairest woman in the whole world, and rumors of her beauty spread far and wide. So it would make sense that the queen to cast Cersei down is actually Daenerys, and not Margaery. If this is the case, it also makes sense that Daenerys and Cersei will — at some point — be in King's Landing at the same time.

One can only hope of course, but I for one would love to see Daenerys cross the Narrow Sea and ruffle some Westerosi feathers.
