Persuasive ‘Game of Thrones’ theory predicts an unexpected marriage in Season 7

Could Cersei be on the path to another marriage next Season?

Warning: Yep, you guessed it: this one has spoilers for Season 6.

As exciting as the final shots of Game of Thrones Season 6 were, there was one key question that came from seeing Daenerys’ mighty fleet stretched out across the Narrow Sea: how the hell is the battle for the Iron Throne even going to be a contest?

Surely, with all her new allies and that much firepower (pun intended), the Mother of Dragons will demolish Cersei and her few remaining troops in no time flat?

Well, maybe not. As reddit user Sam_Stark suggests in this recent theory, Cersei may still have one more wildcard left to play: Euron Greyjoy.

A lot of people thought the theory made sense

Although some weren’t sure it was a very “Cersei” thing to do.

So will Cersei marry Euron?

If we had to guess, we’d say no no to the marriage bit, at least. It’s true that Daenerys needs a greater opposition than just one power-crazed, tactically-challenged Lannister, so we do think Euron will come into the equation as another rival to her invasion; and it’s also very possible that Cersei will make some sort of formal alliance with the ruler of the Iron Islands.

But marriage? Unless Cersei takes it into her head to make Jamie jealous (which, to be fair, is a possibility) we think it’s more likely she’d want to keep the Iron Throne to herself.
