Jon Snow
Will Jon Snow (Kit Harington) try to take the Iron Throne in Season 7 of “Game of Thrones”? HBO

“Game of Thrones” Season 7 is going to be a race to take the Iron Throne from Cersei Lannister. While many in the Seven Kingdoms will likely participate, there’s one fan favorite who may be out of the running.

According to Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos on “Game of Thrones,” Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) probably won’t try and take the throne for himself. Speaking with Express, the actor explained that while Jon would be a great leader, he’s not interested in that sort of power. Cunningham, 55, said that Jon has enough on his plate as the current King of the North — a title seemingly thrust upon him by his constituents.

“I think Jon Snow would be good, but he doesn’t strike me as someone who wants to [sit on the throne],” he said. “He’s had power thrust upon him. He never asked to be king, it was all the other people in the North who made him king and he has a responsibility to his people.”

Whoever does take the throne may be in for a pleasant surprise during their quest for power. According to a “Game of Thrones” theory posted on Reddit, Cersei may die in Season 7. The prediction stems from a Season 5 moment in which Maggy the Frog (Jodhi May) predicts younger Cersei’s future. She accurately prophesized that Cersei would marry Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy), how many children they’d separately have and that she’d eventually lose her throne to someone “younger, more beautiful.”

“You will never wed the Prince, you will wed the King…You’ll be the Queen, for a time. Then comes another — younger, more beautiful to cast you down and take all you hold dear,” Maggy the Frog told Cersei in the “Game of Thrones” flashback.

An excerpt from one of George R.R. Martin’s books puts a darker twist on Maggy’s prediction. In the written version, the clairvoyant goes on to say, “And when your tears have drowned you, the valonqar [little brother in High Valyrian] shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.” Reddit users have taken this version and run with it, giving way to new theories about Cersei’s longevity on the show.

“I’m convinced that there will be a trial by combat to determine if Cersei will be put to death and it will be a fight between the Cleganes and the Hound will win,” user BertMacgyver wrote. “Meaning that the prophecy that Cersei will be killed by the ‘little brother’ will come true.”

There’s also a possibility that the “little brother” in question may also be Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Another popular “Game of Thrones” theory suggests that Cersei’s slightly younger brother/lover will turn on her in Season 7 and kill her. Coster-Waldau entertained the idea during an interview with Daily Beast, but refused to give anything away.

“That’s a great theory,” he said smiling.
