Cersei’s Big Reveal In Game Of Thrones Season 7 ‘Eastwatch’ Might End In A Tragedy After All

Remember Maggy The Frog’s Prophecy?

Spoiler Alert: This post contains major spoilers for season 7 episode 5. 

I don’t blame you if you don’t. Since it was way back in season 5 and it wasn’t a very long flashback either. However, I don’t think the creators of the show have forgotten since they haven’t divulged from the prophecy yet.

Seasons 7 has been a great season for Cersei. She has taken tremendous steps in gaining power back. She is finally getting all the revenge she desired.

The Tyrells have ended because of her as she sent Jaime Lannister to kill Olenna Tyrell. The last living snake has also either been killed or captured.


She Also Has A Powerful Navy Army At Her Disposal.

That is because of how she allied with Euron Greyjoy. However, she is pregnant now. That might be because of all the sibling sex since episode 1. Jaime and Cersei, however, are very pleased because of this.

She might have forgotten the prophecy, however. She might be having good fortune now, but that luck doesn’t tend to last long especially in Game Of Thrones. So, in ‘Spoils Of War’ her army suffered tremendously and it seemed like things are only going to go downhill from here.


She Asked Three Questions From Maggy.

First, she asked for her future prospect of her being a queen.

“You’ll be queen, for a time. Then comes another, younger, more beautiful to cast you down and take all you hold dear.” Maggy told Cersei.

The ‘younger more beautiful’  queen could be hinting at Daenerys Targaryen. It isn’t any coincidence that she has always sought to eliminate Margaery Tyrell and Sansa Stark. Two younger and beautiful future queens.

Secondly, Cersei asked about her future children.

“The king will have 20 children, and you will have three. Gold will be their crowns. Gold, their shrouds.” Maggy said.


The 20 Children Might Be Robert Baratheon’s Bastards Like Gendry.

Her three children obviously are  Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen. This could also mean that her future child might not live. The gold shrouds part might be interpreted as her children being royalty and thus would have royal funeral shrouds when they die.


The ‘Gold Crowns’ Might Literally Mean Her Children’s Golden Hair.

As that was the hint that made Ned Stark realize that Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen were Jaime’s, not Robert’s. From what we have seen so far. The writers have been keeping true to the prophecy. And since Maggy The Frog did not mention a fourth child. This can spell disaster for Cersei.


What do you think? Will the creators of the show keep true to the prophecy or does it mean entirely something else? We will love to hear your take on it.
