A new season of Game of Thrones premieres on July 16. The popular fantasy series has several plot points but the main story arc centers on the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms. Who will sit on the Iron Throne at the end of Season 7?
Cersei of the House Lannister, first of her name, Queen of the Andals and The First Men is the current protector of the Seven Kingdoms. To be the man, err woman to sit on the throne, you got to beat the man. Cersei (-325) is the leader in the clubhouse.
Dany makes sense at +220. The Mother of Dragons has an army of Unsullied, a Dothraki Horde, an alliance with House Tyrell, Dorne and the Greyjoys, plus three dragons. It’s just a matter of when the Targaryen retakes the crown.
Jon Snow is interesting at +1000 but the new King in the North has bigger concerns than sitting on the Iron Throne. Jon is more likely to march to the Wall than south to Kings Landing.
Baelish is a snake in the grass and would see the realm burn if he could be king of the ashes. Littlefinger (+1500) works behind the scenes but can he make enough moves to get what he really wants?
The only other contender for the throne that could unseat Cersei in Season 7 would be the Night King. At +6600, the army of the undead seems underpriced.
