Really wants to kill Jaime Tyrion

"Game of Thrones"
Who is the little brother who will kill Cersei?

Cersei Lannister must die. "Game of Thrones" fans have known this since the prophecy of the witch was unveiled. Numerous die-hard "GoT" fans are convinced that Jaime Lannister will murder his own sister. But could we expect a twist in Cersei's prophecy?

Maggy the frog, a witch in the world of "Game of Thrones", once spoke to the then 15-year-old Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) about her future. The forest witch prophesied three things, most of which have happened so far: the wedding to King Robert Baratheon, the birth and death of her three children and that Cersei himself will die. "And when your tears have drowned you, the Valonqar will close your hands around your bright white neck and squeeze until you have exhausted your life," announced Maggy.

Pay attention to Maggy's choice of words

The term Valonqar is High Valyrian and means "little brother". So far, all "Game of Thrones" fans are firmly convinced that Cersei's younger twin brother Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) will be the promised little brother who will murder Cersei. Cersei himself believes that she has found her future murderer in Tyrion (Peter Dinklage). But could a twist be in store for us? After all, Maggy did not say "your little brother" in her prophecy, but speaks clearly of "the little brother".

Twist in season 8?

Meanwhile, there aren't many little brothers in "Game of Thrones" - at least those who are relevant - who could possibly kill Cersei. Theon Greyjoy is currently pursuing a different goal and wants to rescue his sister from the clutches of Euron Greyjoy. Bran Stark seems to have long since ceased to interfere in what is happening in the present, which is why he, too, falls out as a possible murderer. "GoT" fan Nathan Ritscherle suspects on the "Quora" page that Sandor "The Hound" Clegane could also be "the little brother" who kills Cersei.

Who is "the little brother"?

That would of course be an exciting twist after book readers have been expecting Jaime as the deadly "Valonqar" for decades (!). Just whether George R. R. Martin and the showrunners of "Game of Thrones" will really miss the chance to let Cersei die at the hands of their great love? Questionable. We don't expect an answer until Season 8 Game of Thrones and Cersei will survive the Season 7 finale. Who do you think will ultimately strangle her: Jaime? Tyrion? Or is it another man who we haven't had on our screen before?
