shmewdog posted a topic in General (GoT)Cersei's coronation at the end of episode 10 doesn't make a lot of sense to me. With Tommen's death, the matter of who should ascend the throne becomes rather complicated. Since no one seems to know about Gendry, and since Dany's only claim would be through conquest, I assume that the next claimant would have to be descended from a Targaryen daughter. Robert justified his claim not just on conquest, but also from his grandmother's Targaryen blood. Are there any living characters who have Targaryen lineage through the female line? I checked through the lineages listed in the back of the World of Ice and Fire, but nothing sprung out at me. I read an article online that argued that if Tommen were to die, the next claimant would have been Tywin Lannister, as he is supposedly descended from a Lannister-Targaryen marriage somewhere in his ancestry. Since it was a clickbait article I take it with a grain of salt to say the least. But assuming it is true, then with Tywin dead, Jaime sworn to not hold lands and Tyrion attainted, the next ruler would indeed be Cersei. Not that her reign will likely last long, she has the backing of literally no one of the other regions and she's got Dany, Unsullied, Dothraki allied with Ironborn, Martells and Tyrells coming for her. Anybody able/willing to shed some light on this?
I favor the theory that the giant is Littlefinger and that Sansa will be his undoing either in Winterfell or in a snow-filled Eyrie. LF's grandfather was from Bravos and when he was knighted he chose the Titan as his sigil. True LF changed his sigil to the mockingbird but I feel that would have been WAY too obvious and would have given away the game. The titan is a more subtle reference.
