This minor detail from the latest episode of Game of Thrones may just prove to have some pretty devastatingly big consequences later on. [Warning: Minor spoilers from Season 7 Episode 3]
After Cersei and Jaime Lannister spend the night together, Cersei’s maid, Bernadette, brings her news and is seen rocking the same pixie cut and militaristic black ensemble that Cersei’s been fashioning since she was crowned Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. Bernadette has been on the show since the early seasons, and as this Reddit user pointed out, has copied Cersei’s fashion choices since day 1.
Besides her copy-cat style, Bernadette’s actions speaks largely of her loyalty to Cersei. From threatening to tell the Queen when Sansa Stark got her first period to catching Tyrion Lannister with Shae, Bernadette has been there to inform and wait on Cersei when she needs.
Yet, this loyalty could end up being Cersei’s downfall, according to some fan comments on the post. The major theory is that Arya Stark will pose as Bernadette, killing her and taking her face to enact her revenge on the Queen for what she did to her family. The only major plot hole is that Arya is apparently on her way back to Winterfell to be reunited with the other Starks. If the theory holds true, his wouldn’t be the first time Arya shocked GOT fans. Afterall, she did manage to kill all the Frey men singlehandedly with pies and poison.
Don’t underestimate the girl with no name.
