Game of Thrones
Season 7 will be here in 10 days. Fans are eagerly anticipating the upcoming season, especially now that Cersei Lannister is Queen of Westeros. Eyes are on Jaime Lannister to see what he will do next. Could he become the "Queenslayer"?
Why would he even want to kill his own sister? Well, he wasn't happy about Cersei using wildfire in the Season 6 finale. Here's a look at the events that could turn him.
He's Already Known as the 'Kingslayer'
Throughout Game of Thrones
fans have heard Jaime referred to as the "Kingslayer." It's a nickname that he
will never lose, but do you understand the whole reference? Jaime didn't just kill the Targaryen king to put his brother-in-law on the throne or to show Lannister support. He was worried about the fate of Westeros.
Jaime killed the "Mad King," Aerys Targaryen, because of threats of using wildfire. He didn't want the people of King's Landing (or the whole of Westeros) in danger from the king's actions. Cersei has gone one step further than Aerys. Rather than just threaten to use wildfire, she killed a church full of people with it, including her daughter-in-law. That action led to Cersei and Jaime's son throwing himself from a window to kill himself.

Cersei's actions weren't done for survival. They were the actions of a cruel and selfish woman, and they hint at a madness that nobody will be able to control. With Cersei now on the throne (and her zombie Mountain by her side) nobody is safe, and Jaime will need to do everything he can to
protect Westeros from her evil ways.
He's already known as the "Kingslayer," so why not add "Queenslayer" to his list of titles?
Cersei's Death Could
Be Jaime's Redemption
Unlike his murder of Aerys, there are high chances that he will be congratulated and thanked for his actions against Cersei. Since Game of Thrones
Season 2, Jaime has sought redemption. He wants to be a better man than the nickname "Kingslayer." Various people he has come into contact with over the last few years have helped him see that there is a better way to live.
Jaime could help to put the rightful Targaryen on the throne. And who is that? Daenerys thinks it's her, because nobody realizes that Jon is the son of a Stark and Targaryen. Regardless of who the rightful heir is, Jaime can take steps to fix everything he has done wrong in the past. Being the mastermind behind Cersei's death would truly be redemption for the Lannister knight.

The Prophecy A Song of Ice and Fire
fans will know of a prophecy told by Maggy the Frog said that Cersei would die at the hands of her "valonqar." This is High Valyrian for "little brother." The death would take place after the deaths of her three children, which is part of the prophecy that has come to pass.
At the time, many people suspected Tyrion Lannister would kill his sister. Cersei likely believed that too, but now fans believe that Jaime is the "little brother" in the prophecy. While twins, Cersei is slightly older than her brother, so the theory fits.
Queen Cersei is now one of the most hated characters in Game of Thrones
. It makes sense for Season 7 to potentially be her last to allow for Season 8 to focus more on the upcoming war between Westeros and North of the Wall. Will she deny that White
Walkers are real, leaving Jaime feeling the need to kill her to keep the whole of Westeros safe?
Do you think Jaime will become the "Queenslayer?" Is he the "valonqar"
