*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
While so many of our theories about Game of Thrones's final season have fallen flat in recent weeks—and at the show's loss, because WTH is going on anymore?!—one of the biggest prophecies from GoT may have actually played out during episode five...just not how we all expected.
According to a Reddit post about the fated characters' endings, the much-discussed Valonqar prophecy about Cersei's fate made by Maggy the Frog in season five was actually fulfilled during last night's fifth episode of season eight.
First, a quick recap: The Valonqar prophecy was made by a witch, called Maggy the Frog, that said Cersei would have three children that would all die, and that she would eventually be murdered by the "valonqar," which is High Valyrian for little brother. While Cersei assumed this would be Tyrion (and made her hatred toward him even more threatening), eagle-eyed fans pointed out that her lover and twin brother Jaime was actually born just seconds before Cersei. The prophecy says, "Three [children] for you. Gold shall be their crowns and gold their [funeral] shrouds…and when your tears have drowned you, the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you."
