While we already talked about the possibility of Tyrion betraying Daenerys in one of our previous articles, now it's time to add a little more clarity to that idea given everything that happened in the "Game of Thrones" Season 7 finale. As soon as the episode finished, a new theory emerged saying how Tyrion betrayed Daenerys by choosing to ally with Cersei. So let's dive straight into it.

A quick recap

The episode itself was full of payoffs, reunions, and first-time meetings. But what caught our attention the most was the conversation between Cersei and Tyrion.

You can watch the scene down below.

As you can see in the video above, Cersei is blaming Tyrion for the deaths of Myrcella and Tommen. She then goes on to explain how this would never have happened if Tyrion didn't kill their father. Then, we hear how Tyrion is truly sorry about the deaths of her children. He even suggests that Cersei orders the Mountain to kill him right on the spot.

And yet she didn't. Instead, the tension drops, Tyrion pours them two glasses of wine, and the conversation continues. Cersei is then talking about how she doesn't care about making the world a better place and that she only cares about the future of her family. It is then when Tyrion realizes that Cersei is pregnant and the scene cuts off, causing fans to wonder if the siblings made a deal.

The theory

According to the Reddit user ndotny, the revelation that Cersei is pregnant gave Tyrion a chance for real redemption. That way he will protect an innocent niece or nephew and at the same time protect the realm by making Cersei agree to a temporary peace.

Later in the episode, Cersei told Daenerys and Jon that she would send her army to fight alongside them in the Great War.

But we later find out that was all a ruse and she will instead hire the Golden Company to fight whatever is left of Daenerys's army to establish control over the Seven Kingdoms.

Three proofs of the alliance

The first proof is Cersei's statement that Jaime has always been the dumbest Lannister for not realizing that lying to Daenerys was the best option.

That, according to Reddit user ndotny, seems to suggest that both herself and Tyrion are on the same page in regards to that issue. The second is the fact that she knew that Daenerys lost one dragon, which is the information Tyrion could have shared with her as a part of the agreement.

Finally, let's not forget the look on Tyrion's face when he saw Jon Snow entering Daenerys's cabin. This was not the look of the jealous man as some seem to suggest, but the look of a man who realized what he might destroy through his betrayal.
