She's the daughter of the last Targaryen king, but since the firstborn son and his firstborn son are next in the line of succession…well, we'll just have to see what she does when she finds out the truth about Jon. Of course, there was a sweet and tender moment in the premiere, too — one that made us remember just how far we've all come on this ridiculously long journey together. However, considering Tommen wasn't actually the legitimate son of King Robert Baratheon, Cersei's child never actually belonged on the throne, meaning she should've never been Queen Mother in the first place. Odds She'll Get It: Considering she's currently sitting on the throne, we're pretty comfortable in our prediction that she won't be sitting there by the time the series comes to an end.
Odds He'll Get It: It would be a pretty neat twist to see Jaime unseat his sister-lover from the throne, but now that they're apparently expecting another child, we're not holding our breath that he'll do anything but stand faithfully by her side until the bitter end. Claim to Throne: Legitimate, but not as legitimate as she thought. And although the moment Sam dropped that particular bomb on Jon in the crypts wasn't an earth-shattering moment for viewers, it likely will put things in perspective for Jon, who's going to wake up any day now realize why Daenerys' dragons were staring at them while they kissed by a waterfall. At Winterfell, Bran got a shiny new dagger from Littlefinger. But it wasn't all hugs and fireside chats. Cersei is a murderer, a liar, and an all-around terrible person.
The emotionally resonant hour was filled with some powerful, intimate moments between characters. Perhaps the funniest moment of the season premiere, though, came when it looked as if Lady Lyanna Mormont was about to out Jon as a little bitch but stopped herself just in time. From the emotionally charged Stark family reunion to a climactic battle that saw Daenerys unleash the full power of her dragon, Drogon on Jaime Lannister his army. Back at Dragonstone, Jon and Davos were out for a nice stroll.
But also kind of impressed? Animals go on the smell of something. Odds He'll Get It: He didn't just pop back up for nothing. However, it didn't mess with ratings at all. Bronn complained… …and then was sent to bully some poor farmers. Considering Tywin was murdered by Jaime's brother Tyrion, Jaime could very well challenge his younger sister Cersei as his father's first born son and rightful heir.
But Jaime's claim would be through some pretty heavy technicalities. Davos asked Jon how his date with Dany at the cave art exhibit went. Elsewhere, Sansa was dropping pearls of wisdom of her own. Who will win the Iron Throne? There's, of course, the unparalleled drama Winter is finally here! Jon was a bit shocked.
If you didn't tear up a bit when they hugged, you don't have a heart. Or when he offered his services to her. At Dragonstone, Missandei was glowing and Dany noticed. She does not deserve the power she's amassed.
Jon Snow taking a page from Shrek! Or maybe when the two exchanged a knowing look as Tormund was talking about how he got the name Giantsbane. Yes, that is a scene of Donkey from Shrek with a dragon that looks pretty much exactly like the scene from Game of Thrones with Jon Snow and Drogon. Just try not to laugh every time you think of Cersei lamenting not getting her hands on the Golden Company's elephants. That means Jon is a direct descendant of the last Targaryen king's firstborn son, and has an even better claim than Daenerys but don't tell her that.
So, gird your loins, because you're about to witness some of , featuring the heartthrobs we can't help but crush on. Jaime gave Bronn some gold. We couldn't think of a fairer ruler for Westeros. And now there's another joy to behold, the below tweet by ThePixelFactor. We've got a feeling she just might surprise us all.
Claim to Throne: Not legitimate. She's heading into Mad Queen territory at present, but considering her entire history and how hard she's fought and how many people are devoted to her, yes. He soon got his priorities in order. But we can dream, can't we? And Arya pretended not to be a badass.
