In the latest episode of Game of Thrones, Season 8, Episode 4, the standoff between Daenerys and Cersei for the Iron Throne became fully realized. And the next episode will give us a battle between queens.
We saw Cersei become dead set on not only maintaining her grip of the Iron Throne but installing an heir by way of her baby with Euron.
In episode 4, Cersei told Euron that she’ll rule the land, he’ll rule the sea, and their child will rule both!
And we saw Daenerys desperately trying to exert her own authority, especially in the face of Jon’s obvious popularity with the North (and legitimate claim to the throne).
Even her loyal advisors Tyrion and Varys, admit that her whole, “But I’m meant for the Iron Throne” bit is getting old.
Daenerys saw her second dragon and Missandei getting killed in the most brutal way possible which only pushes her over the Mad Queen edge. Which breaks my heart.

So, with two episodes left in this crazy rip-roarin’ ride, we call Game of Thrones, that means we’re left with TWO blonde queens locked in a deathmatch for power — and as Twitter user @Kerri_may noticed tonight, they both also have Green eyes.
Does anyone else feel like the close ups of Daenerys in this episode were designed to remind us that Dany has Green eyes? ‘Brown eyes, Green eyes, Blue eyes.’ Arya will stop the Kings Landing massacre, but which green eyed queen will she kill? #GamefThrones pic.twitter.com/BuSNfgc6D4

In the book, Daenerys is said to have violet eyes, but they are definitely green in the show, and don’t tell me it’s just ’cause the creators blew the colored contacts budget on the battle scenes.
Which means that, if Melisandra’s prophecy about Arya “shutting forever” brown eyes (statistically, she’s probably covered this [x]), blue eyes (Night King [x]) and green eyes comes true, it could honestly go either way now.
We’ve been led to believe that Cersei would end up being the “green eyes” on Arya’s list, but as we saw in this episode that Arya doesn’t like Daenerys at all.
In the end, we saw Arya riding south to King’s Landing, where the party/bloodbath will 10000% be for the last two episodes.
And we all know she wouldn’t miss it for the world.
So who do we think it’s going to be? Daenerys? Cersei? Some green-eyed rando?
