Game of Thrones Season 7 Predictions

Game of Thrones Season 7 Predictions

Hello there, QQ readers and fellow Game of Thrones addicts! I'm so excited you've decided to join us as we attempt to fill the void in our hearts and Sunday night routines. With the delay from the usual schedule, it has now been over a year since the Season 6 finale of Game of Thrones. During that time we've re-read the books (you haven't?), recorded podcasts, and consolidated the history of the realm for curious show-watchers.

I planned to identify 10-15 important questions and ended up with a list of 32 of varying quality. Oops! Luckily, Weems, Madds, and Yax are supportive of my habits, so we have ourselves a competition! Predictions will only cover Season 7, and each loser must send one bottle of whiskey to the winner. Let's prognosticate!

House Lannister:

Will Cersei Lannister survive Season 7? (split)

Cersei wiped out most of the enemies she knew in one big move; will it be enough to protect her from those she doesn't see coming?

  • Truck: Yes
  • Madds: No
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: Yes

If not, who kills Cersei? (consensus)

Tyrion needs no encouragement; Jaime has seen his sister turn into the king he forsook his vows to kill; plenty of options!

  • Truck: Jaime
  • Madds: Jaime
  • Weems: Jaime
  • Yax: Jaime

 

 

 

Does Euron form an alliance with Cersei? (consensus)

Both seem to be alone in a world now defined by a large host under the Targaryen banner to the south and the Stark banner to the north. Do the others remain together?

  • Truck: Yes
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: Yes
Euron Greyjoy definitely seems like the kind of guy Cersei would get along with in The Door (S6E5)

Euron Greyjoy definitely seems like the kind of guy Cersei would get along with in The Door (S6E5)

Which Lannister drinks most, Cersei or Tyrion?

This is a rule in our Game of Thrones drinking game for a reason; Cersei has no reason for concern until another army arrives, and Tyrion may well be traveling through Dorne and the Reach, both famous for their wine

  • Truck: Tyrion
  • Madds: Tyrion
  • Weems: Cersei
  • Yax: Tyrion

Lannister deaths, over/under 1.5? (consensus)

If you don't think Cersei dies, this one is easy; if not, do Tyrion or Jaime die along with their sister?

  • Truck: Under
  • Madds: Under
  • Weems: Under
  • Yax: Under
Myrcella Lannister under a golden shroud in The Red Woman (S6E1), just as Maggie the Frog predicted

Is Tyrion reunited with either of his siblings? (consensus)

Jaime has promised to kill Tyrion on sight while Cersei hardly needs to verbalize her intentions. Will speaking in person change their minds?

  • Truck: Yes
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: Yes

House Targaryen

Will Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow meet? (split)

(Perhaps the only) Two remaining Targaryens are now situated to guide the future of Westeros. Will their paths cross?

  • Truck: No
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: No
  • Yax: Yes

Do any of Daenerys's dragons die? (split)

In theory, Dany would need three dragonriders for her children. If a third doesn't exist, does it suggest one of the three will die?

  • Truck: No
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: No
  • Yax: Yes

 

 

 

Does Dany get married again? (consensus)

Weddings in this world can be for strategy or love; will either be enough to force Dany into another arrangement?

  • Truck: No
  • Madds: No
  • Weems: No
  • Yax: No
Daenerys Targaryen married Khal Drogo in Winter is Coming (S1E1)

  • Truck: Jon Snow
  • Madds: Jon Snow
  • Weems: Tyrion Lannister

Game of Thrones Season 7 Predictions Daenerys Dragons

Does Daenerys get attacked before making landfall on Westeros? (split)

Dany's forces seem overwhelming to those we've seen in Westeros; will they be thinned before she can deploy them?

  • Truck: Yes
    Madds: No
  • Weems: No
  • Yax: Yes

If so, by who? (Greyjoys, Lannisters, Squishers, other) (split)

  • Truck: Greyjoys
  • Madds: Greyjoys
  • Weems: Squishers
  • Yax: Greyjoys

House Stark

Will Sansa kill Littlefinger? (split)

She has reasons on reasons on reasons; has Littlefinger's political guidance deterred her from throwing him off the ladder

  • Truck: Yes
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: No
  • Yax: Yes

 

Is Sansa pregnant with Ramsay's child? (split)

A theory I've seen a lot around the internet; it was Ramsay's goal, but does Sansa's path get even MORE difficult?

  • Truck: No
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: Yes
Sansa Stark shutting Lord Petyr Baelish down like the creepshow he is in The Winds of Winter (S6E10)

  • Yax: Yes

If so, who tells him? (Bran, Howland Reed, Samwell Tarly, or other) (split)

Is Arya reunited with any of her siblings? (consensus)

Arya is currently in the Riverlands, and it shouldn't take long for news of Jon's victory at the Battle of Winterfell to travel. Will she head north to join him? Or south to make more progress on her list?

  • Truck: Yes
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: Yes

Does another Stark die? (split)

Of the original eight (Ned, Catelyn, Robb, Sansa, Arya, Bran, Rickon, and Jon), four are dead. Will the rest make it through Season 7?

  • Truck: No
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: No

Does Sansa travel south of the Neck? (consensus)

It's hard to imagine Jon not returning to the Wall, but Sansa now has some degree of control over the army of the Vale; will she join Jon or set her sights elsewhere?

  • Truck: Yes
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: Yes

Do any of the remaining direwolves die? (split)

  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: Yes

Does the Night King's brand on Bran have a negative effect on the Wall? (split)

Benjen Stark says he can't cross the Wall because of spells built into it; we've seen the Night King's brand undo spells at the weirwood tree, but will it do the same to the Wall?

  • Truck: Yes
  • Madds: No
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: No
The Night's King grabbing Bran Stark in The Door (S6E5)

How far south do the White Walkers get (closest to the mark)? (split)

If they end up making it past the Wall, does the season end then? Or do they, and winter, push farther into Westeros?

  • Madds: The Neck
  • Weems: Winterfell
  • Yax: The Wall

Miscellaneous

  • Truck: Yes
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: No

  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: Yes
Tormund shoots those bedroom eyes at Brienne in The Door (S6E5)

  • Truck: Yes
  • Madds: Yes
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: Yes

Does Gendry make an appearance? (split)

A bastard son of Robert Baratheon has value towards the throne, and Gendry might know how to re-work Valyrian steel; is either enough to bring the last remaining Baratheon back?

  • Truck: No
    Madds: Yes
  • Weems: Yes
  • Yax: No
Gendry Storm, bastard son of King Robert Baratheon, last seen in Mhysa (S3E10)
