Game of Thrones fans have been busy plotting Cersei's death in a couple of new fan theories.
While we don't know if the Queen will be killed off in the final two seasons – and this is Game of Thrones, so she could outlast them all – Reddit users have come up with convincing theories to who might off her.
One uses Cersei's prophecy of a "Valonqar" choking the life out of her, but shifts who might be the killer.
"Since the Valonqar is Valyrian for the little brother, most people think that Jaime, or maybe Tyrion, will kill Cersei. I think that in a show as unpredictable as Game of Thrones, this is too obvious," they argue.
"The Valonqar means 'the little brother', not Cersei's little brother. So Cersei's murderer could be anyone who is a little brother. But saying this in Valyrian suggests that the person will have Valyrian blood.
"The Targaryens have Valyrian blood. Jon Snow is a Targaryen. He is the little brother of Rhaenys and Aegon. He wants to kill Cersei. I think it is very likely that he does."
"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, meaning that the prophecy that Cersei will be killed by the 'little brother' will come true," they state.
We can't help thinking that Cersei isn't the kind of person who will let her fate be decided by other people though.
The theories follow the news that Mark Gatiss has all but confirmed his Game of Thrones return as the Iron Bank's Tycho Nestoris, so perhaps Cersei's downfall will be more financial-based?
We'll just have to wait and see when Game of Thrones returns to HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic in the UK in July.
