    She could marry him.

    I've been wondering that, too.

    I thought only a royal decree could do it.

    That turns a bastard into a non-bastard? I'm pretty sure that's not how it works.

    Ramsay's father de-bastardized Ramsay (without marrying him).

    Didn't Roose Bolton debadstardize Ramsay?

    Ah, so Ramsay's father didn't do it himself, but had King Tommen do it?

    The father has to request it of the king and the king can grant or not. The father isn't alive, in this case.

    That is not what I meant. If Sansa were the only surviving Stark, and he marries her, then he becomes Lord of Winterfell. Maybe.

    Two thoughts.

    Cersie isn't all that tore up about Tommen. He did throw her under the bus when he decreed no more trial by combat.

    Perhaps a previously unknown document surfaces where Rob legitimized Jon in the event of Rob's death and no other heirs.

    The thing Cersei was wearing looked almost military.

    Perhaps she was shooting for something like this:

    Yeah, they were pretty obvious about drawing parallels between her and Tommen getting dressed.

    Which makes you wonder...DID she plan that she would take over from Tommen that day?

    I'm not sure how she would know he would jump out the window. If she wanted to guarantee he was dead she could have had the Mountain kill him, or more likely just not stopped him from going to the trial.

    Correct, Ramsay was legitimized by royal decree, but that was sought by his father from the king. They may or may not have addressed this legality in the show, and I am just drawing a blank right now.

    I think she is to the point where she's totally devoid of emotion. She lost Joffrey. She lost Marcella. She knew from the prophecy that she'd lose Tommen. She's suffered and been tortured. She's been humiliated. At this point, I think she basically just has the attitude of "F*** them all."

    Either way, there's nobody to make that request on Jon's behalf, and there's no chance that Cersei would grant it, so it's kind of moot.

    I think there was a point this season where Cersei resigned herself to the fact that the prophecy delivered by the witch in Season 4 was going to come true and there was nothing she could do to stop it. She also probably assumed the other part of the prophecy was about Margaery taking over ("“there comes another, younger and more beautiful, to cast you down and take all that you hold dear") , but that could also refer to Dany.

    Yeah, I don't think there's any other way to legitimize someone. But then again, the King in the North doesn't need a noble name apparently (as all his banners made clear when swearing oaths of fealty to him).
