Holy Mother of Dragons!
After Sunday night’s viciously satisfying episode of Game of Thrones, we knew that only a true superfan could help us break down all the biggest moments from “The Queen’s Justice.”
You may know Patrick Fabian as the smooth-talking Howard Hamlin from AMC’s Better Call Saul, but we know him as a diehard Game of Thrones fanatic, so we flew him into the ET studios (via dragon, of course!) to co-host this week’s episode of Westeros Weekly!
In addition to discussing Olenna Tyrell’s jaw-dropping Joffrey confession and Cersei’s fitting kiss of death, Fabian weighed in on one of the most shocking (and plausible!) GoT theories out there: Jamie will be the one to kill his sister.
Let’s break it down…
As you may recall, the woods witch Maggy told young Cersei a cryptic prophecy which correctly predicted that all three of the queen’s children would die. The prophecy ended as follows: “And when your tears have drowned you, the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.”
We’ll save you a trip to the High Valarian dictionary — “Valonqar” means “little brother,” which, if the prophecy were to hold true, means that either Tyrion or Jamie (who is indeed a few minutes younger than his twin sister/lover) will be the one to take Cersei’s life in the end.
ET caught up with star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau at the Game of Thrones premiere last month to find out if Jamie really has what it takes to choke the life from his sister. “It’s a valid theory,” Coster-Waldau confirms. “I can only imagine it would be a very specific, very extreme circumstance where it could even be a possibility, but who knows?”
Press play on Westeros Weekly above to watch Fabian address Coster-Waldau’s ultra-vague response! Plus, the Better Call Saul star answered this week’s celebrity edition of the Wildfire Fast Five and he made a very bold prediction for who he thinks will die before the end of the season…
Wildfire Fast Five with Patrick Fabian
1.) Who’s your favorite character and why?
Little Finger because he’s going to live.
2.) If you could bring one character back to life, who would it be?
Oh, Catelyn Stark — don’t we all love her?
3.) Who do you think WON’T make it out of this season alive?
Spider [aka Lord Varys]. Yeah I think it’s going to come from left field, but I think he’ll be gone.
4.) Which unlikely team-up would you like to see before the end of the series?
Oh, is it possible that Jon Snow and Cersei actually somehow form an alliance? Is it possible? I’m just saying White Walkers are big.
5.) Who do you think will be on the Iron Throne at the end of the season? Why?
I hope that Arya Stark is. It’s a long jump, but you know what? Did you see how fast they got from The Wall down to Dragonstone? How about that!
