Cersei Lannister's Plan

HBO

Part One: The Baby

  1. He is entirely irresistible to women (so Cersei just will not be able to resist him)
  2. Cersei is just a means to an end, she will play along and let him become King of all Westeros while she learns her place (or whatever “bro” logic he seems to have convinced himself of)
  3. Putting his baby inside her will cement his claim and make him King.

2. The Bathwater

  • If the walkers lose her plan is to roundly defeat any human survivors using her existing troops and the Golden Company (This would also have the beneficial effect of ridding Westeros of ALL remaining claims to the throne beyond hers).
  • If the walkers win, but only a few remain, she will plan to wipe up the remnants (although since all of the human forces would join the army of the dead this is a pretty unlikely outcome). In this scenario, Cersei would show up just in the nick of time and play herself off as the savior of humanity.
  • If the walkers win and continue towards Kings Landing, she will get on the boats of her navy and head for the Iron Islands with only necessary personnel and troops (Walkers seem to be great at ice but can’t swim — although, in the television version they seemed to be able to walk around underwater just fine and there is technically no reason they couldn’t have boats).
