There are plenty of theories floating around about Game of Thrones’s final season—which will air in the first half of next year—and as Esquire reports, there’s one more to add to the mix involving Cersei Lannister and her unborn baby.
According to this new theory, posted on Reddit by user ThronIcy, the deaths of the Starks during the Red Wedding have mirrored later deaths in the series, which may be bad news for Cersei:
“Roose Bolton died by being stabbed in the chest in the same way as Robb Stark. Walder Frey died by having his throat cut the same way they killed Catelyn. Robb Stark, Catelyn Stark and there is 1 stark left, Talisa. Talisa died by being stabbed in the stomach while pregnant. 3 Houses arranged the Red Wedding, Bolton, Frey and Lannister. “1.House Frey: Walder Frey 2.House Bolton: Roose Bolton 3.House Lannisters: Cercei Lannister dying by a stab in the stomach while pregnant would mirror Talisa Stark.”
The theory does make a lot of sense, but how close it gets to what happens on the show is something we’ll just have to wait and see: HBO is majorly safeguarding the final season’s secrets. “They’re very very strict. It’s reached a crazy level this year,” Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (who plays Jaime Lannister) said in an interview earlier this year. “We actually get the scripts, and then when we’ve shot the scene—and we only have it digitally—and then when you’ve done the scene, it just vanishes.”
But it would definitely fit in with clues other cast members have dropped. As Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) teased, “This season is bloodier than ever. It’s full of betrayal, full of war, full of danger. That’s all I can say without giving too much away.”
