Update (August 29, 2017): Hypable originally published this article — originally filled with the 100 questions — in 2016. Now that Game of Thrones season 7 has finished airing, let’s look back at the questions we had a year ago and see what did and didn’t get answered.
- How long will Cersei’s reign last?
Answer: Too long.
- Will the city revolt against her?
Answer: Apparently not.
- When will Cersei die?
Answer: Not soon enough.
- Will Arya be the one to kill her?
Answer: Hopefully. Let her personally cross more names off her list.
- Will Jaime kill her, ala the Mad King?
Answer: Maybe. Or maybe Arya with Jaime’s face.
- Who’s going to clean up the mess that is King’s Landing?
- Will Cersei and Jaime try for another baby?
Answer: They didn’t exactly try for another baby, but they’re having one anyway! Unless Cersei is lying…
- Will Arya reunite with the Hound and the Brotherhood?
Answer: The Hound and the Brotherhood didn’t even talk about her with Jon, fat chance on them meeting.
- What are the Brotherhood Without Banners’ plans?
Answer: It seems they want to end the White Walker invasion. How they plan to do that is still very unclear.

Answer: He got to literally face off with him, but no sparring.

Answer: But do we even want to see his face?

Answer: See #14.
- When will Dorne be interesting?
Answer: Now, because the important Dornish are all dead.

Answer: So far so good except for Tyrell, Martell, and Baratheon. But Sam and Gilly better get a move on if the Tarly line isn’t to die out.
- Will Theon join the Unsullied?
Answer: Technically no. But he’s aligned with them, so technically yes?
