Is Tyrion Jealous of Jon Snow?

Last Sunday’s Game of Thrones Season Finale was epic. There were so many important moments. One of them was Brandon Stark narrating the scene of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen’s marriage and the fact that Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, not Ned Stark’s bastard. As that scene unfolded we saw Jon and Daenerys finally making out and Tyrion standing outside Daenerys’s cabin looking all upset. Why did he react that way? Is Tyrion Jealous? Or is he sad?

Tyrion Reacting to Jon and Daenerys Having Sex

Tyrion did not look happy when he saw Jon Snow walking into the cabin of Daenerys. He is an intelligent man and he knew that Jon has had a crush on Daenerys since Jon arrived at Dragonstone. But he did not anticipate Jon bending the knee to Daenerys and to make matters worse, Daenerys not telling her own hand about it. Tyrion comes to know about Jon’s pledge to serve Daenerys as his queen at Dragonpit for the first time straight from Jon Snow, not from the queen he serves. That perhaps made him feel left out and small.

Tyrion can see how Daenerys has started relying on Jon Snow. She even asked Jon for advice when she heard the news about Lannisters taking over Highgarden. At that time she was quite mad at Tyrion as his advice to stand down cost her Dorne, Iron Islands and Highgarden. Now with Jon pledging alliance as King in the North to Daenerys, and Daenerys and Jon hooking up, it complicates matters for Tyrion even further.

When Tyrion Finds Out That Cersei is Pregnant

Tyrion may have made some kind of a deal with Cersei to make her commit to a truce. May be he told Cersei that her unborn child can be named as Daenerys’s successor. We have seen Tyrion talking to Daenerys about choosing a successor to Daenerys in Beyond the Wall. Even though Tyrion thinks that Daenerys can’t have children and Jon Snow and Daenerys having sex won’t change that in his opinion. But he is worried that Daenerys won’t agree to Tyrion’s suggestion of naming Cersei’s child as her successor, especially if Jon Snow and Daenerys get married. That would make Jon Snow a successor after Daenerys. Remember, no one except Brandon Stark and Samwell Tarly know about the fact that Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, the true heir to the Iron Throne.

Does Tyrion Love Daenerys?

Tyrion may also have some feelings for Daenerys. He definitely respects her. According to Jeremy Pedeswa, Director of Game of Thrones Finale, in an interview, “Everyone seems to be in love with Dany, in a way, and I think Tyrion’s a little bit in love with her. But I don’t think it’s an actual romantic love. There’s a huge respect for her. And maybe there’s a slight romantic element to that. But it’s more of a jockeying in terms of who has real power. Not over Dany, but who has power in a relationship with Dany. With Tyrion, it’s all about who is going to have sway over her?



So is Tyrion jealous? Yes, there is some jealousy and some love. But, most likely, Tyrion is worried about losing influence over Daenerys as she gets more and more close to Jon.

Is Cersei Lannister Pregnant With Jaime’s Child: Eastwatch

The writers of Game of Thrones play this game with viewers. A lot happens in one episode and everything is not explicit. The bombshell that they dropped in today’s episode ‘Eastwatch‘ is that Cersei Lannister reveals to Jaime Lannister, by not so much in words but only gestures, that she is pregnant with Jaime Lannister’s child. But is Cersei Lannister pregnant? I have my doubts.



Is Cersei Lannister Pregnant Or Is She Faking It?

Cersei Lannister Places A Hand On Her Belly To Tell Jaime That She Is Pregnant

Jaime comes to meet with Cersei to tell her that he met with Tyrion Lannister. But Cersei has her own news to give to Jaime. She says, “Dead men, and dragons, and dragon queens, whatever stands in our way we will defeat it. For ourselves, for our house, and for this.” When she says for this, she points to her belly and Jaime is like WOAH!!!!

Jaime Lannister’s Reaction When Cersei Announces That She Is Pregnant

Jaime asks Cersei, “Who would you say is the father?“. Cersei replies, “You“. Jaime responds that people won’t like that. Cersei says, “What did father use to say about people?” Jaime replies, “The Lion does not concern himself with the opinions of the sheep“.

Cersei and Jaime Sharing Their Big Moment

But again, is Cersei Lannister Pregnant? She has reasons to lie about it.



Cersei Knows That Jaime Is Her Wild Card

In the episode earlier, Jaime breaks the news to Cersei that Olenna was the one to kill Joffrey. All these years Cersei theorized that Tyrion killed Joffrey. But she was wrong. Jaime makes her believe by the logic that Olenna is the one who would have benefitted from Joffrey’s death, not Tyrion. He asks her if she had a daughter whom she would like her to marry? Someone like Joffrey who was totally out of control or someone like Tommen who could be easily manipulated. It all starts making sense to Cersei then.

Jaime also confesses to Cersei that they cannot win against Daenerys’s Dothraki army and her dragons. Cersei feels that his grip on Jaime is getting loose. But she needs Jaime to see this war through. She is a manipulative shrew and she can go to whatever lengths necessary to keep her trump card, Jaime, close to her. By gesturing towards her belly she creates a moment for Jaime to believe that now whatever they do it’s not only for them but also for their baby who is allegedly on the way.

Cersei Tells Jaime That She Will Go Public About Jaime Being The Father

Cersei has calculated this in her head if she is lying about this. She can’t be serious about going public with this news. She knows what shame feels like from personal experience (her the walk of atonement in Season 5). She also knows that Targaryens used to get married among their siblings, so may be she will justify changing the rule for Lannisters by giving that as an example. But she also knows that announcing her pregnancy with Jaime being the father won’t be taken well by her army and by the people of Westeros. Especially, when she is contesting the throne against the mother of dragons. But then, Daenerys may also make out with Jon Snow which is also incest. So incest may just become the norm for Westerosis. I hope not!!




Here is another twist though. She warns Jaime in the end, “Never betray me again“. Jaime has What In The Seven Hells expression. Perhaps, in that moment, Jaime realizes what Cersei is doing to him.

So is Cersei Lannister pregnant or if she is going to the next level of shrewdness and dirty politics to keep Jaime in her pocket. I think of Olenna Tyrell’s last words to Jaime, “Cersei is a disease. She will be the end of you“.

To know what’s coming in the next episode of Game of Thrones Season 7 watch its preview. We will perhaps find out the truth.
