The winter took a little long time to arrive, but when it did, it came with a bang. Yes, we are talking about the most popular TV series- Game of Thrones.
While watching Game of Thrones, it’s important to pay attention to literally every single moment of the show. If you missed something, just rewind and watch it again because you never know what information you missed while texting your friends over the intense battle scene.
While watching the latest episode of season seven – one Reddit user was hitting something that our friend from season 1 Robert Baratheon said one that basically summed up everything that was happening to his cheating wife, Cersei Lannister.
If you pay attention to their conversation from season one, you can see how Robert mapped out
Let’s say Viserys Targaryen lands with 40,000 Dothraki screamers at his back. We hole up in our castles. A wise move. Only a fool would meet the Dothraki in an open field. They leave us in our castles. They go from town to town, looting and burning, killing every man who can’t hide behind a stone wall, stealing all our crops and livestock, enslaving all our women and children. How long do the people of the Seven Kingdoms stand behind their absentee king, their cowardly king hiding behind high walls? When do the people decide that Viserys Targaryen is the rightful monarch after all?
To which Cersei replies:
We still outnumber them.
Which is the bigger number, five or one?
One army, a real army, united behind one leader with one purpose. Our purpose died with the Mad King.
Essentially, what Robert is foreshadowing to is that if the people in an army are united for one purpose and one cause, they will fight better having a direction and goal. Sounds pretty similar to something Tyrion said on this week’s episode, too.
My sister’s armies fight for her out of fear. The Unsullied will be fighting for something greater: they will be fighting for freedom and the person who gave it to them. They will be fighting for you, and that is why they will triumph.
While the bloodbath between Cersei and Dany is yet to unfold, we are sure it’s coming sometime before the season finale. Dany is all set to take the Iron Throne and take Cersei off the seat. It seems like everything has been set up in Robert’s eyes from the get-go – too bad he died so early on
