How does Theon plan to save Yara?
Considering how miserably they failed in the battle in which Euron managed to capture Yara in the first place, in order for Theon’s admirable sentiment and commendable dedication to saving his sister to actually bear fruit, he’ll want to have a pretty brilliant plan. His capture of Winterfell, as backstabbing and poorly planned in the long term as it was, did actually require some impressive maneuvering, suggesting Theon does potentially have the capacity to think of something suitably clever, though a total failure is also a definite possibility. We shall see.
Will Bronn ever get his castle?
Ser Bronn of the Blackwater, son of “you wouldn’t know him,” has been promised a castle by multiple Lannisters. Lannisters always pay their debts. Will the long-suffering sellsword ever get his promised castle? Between all the wars that have taken place, there are a fair few empty seats to choose from, should Bronn survive long enough to claim his reward.
Will there be a Valonqar?
As far as prophecies go, Maggy the Frog’s predictions for Cersei Lannister’s future have been incredibly on point. Three dead golden-haired children that had no relation to Cersei’s husband, the king? Check. While the show cuts out of Cersei’s flashback without featuring the valonqar—the “little brother”—who will “choke the life” from her, according to Maggy, that hardly means her prediction won’t end up proving true. If so, that leaves plenty of little brothers to choose from, including her own—or maybe even someone else’s. Regardless, it feels like Cersei’s made far too many enemies at this point to make it out of season 8 alive.
