The beginning of the end for Game of Thrones is in full swing now, with the third episode of season 8 set to air tonight. And as exciting as this final stretch is, it’s certainly going to be something of a bittersweet moment to have to say goodbye to all these characters who’ve become so important to fans.
At the same time, however, and to quote a well-known cinematic sorcerer, “We’re in the endgame now.” This is the season the entire show’s been building toward. All of the storylines are going to converge, in likely the most bloody of ways, and fans will have answers to many of the series’ long-standing questions.
And, perhaps most interestingly of all, the many prophecies sprinkled throughout will finally (hopefully) get resolved. While most of the prophecies deal with world-altering circumstances, such as the coming of the Prince that was Promised (who also may or may not be Azor Ahai, the Lightbringer), there are a few where the stakes are slightly lower, but far more personal. One that certainly fits this criteria is the prophecy concerning Cersei and the Valonqar.
