Game of Thrones Goes Mad With Bloodiest, Fieriest Episode Ever

Adjust Comment Print

Game of Thrones fans, raise your wine glasses to Cersei Lannister. Or the building left her underneath it.

I kept saying, 'She wouldn't, she wouldn't, that she would keep fighting. "I had a lot of great ones - that one with Mark Addy [Robert Baratheon] back in the first season", she says.

Then, despite Tyrion's best efforts to convince her to chill, she officially declared it time to attack King's Landing regardless of the people inside and sent the Unsullied ahead, telling Grey Worm to wait for her outside and he'd know when it was time to strike.

Missandei wasn't as central to the story of Game of Thrones as her queen, or Jon Snow, for that matter.

She came around to the idea of dying in her brother-lover Jaime's arms, however, explaining, "The more we talked about it the more it seemed like the ideal end for her".

Who could take her place? I think the important thing is that Jaime had a chance at freedom [with Brienne] and finally liberated himself from Cersei, which I think the audience will be thrilled about.

While the conflict between the Lannisters and the Starks has been the main focus of the show since the very first episode, the rivalry between the Lannisters and House Martell is also a major component, if only because it led to one of the most brutal moments the show had ever seen. "Ultimately they belong together".

Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, and directed by Miguel Sapochnik, it's one last, epic hurrah for Game of Thrones as pure spectacle, while still making way for some strong character work, even if there are still issues therein.

"I love you", Jon said.

Is it too much to ask for a show as celebrated and carefully constructed as Game of Thrones to show more concern for its secondary characters than to make them martyrs, plot points in the lead's villainous turn, an excuse for why someone went "bad" and did awful things - as it seems they're setting Dany up to do?

Cersei's fate was prophesied in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, but the HBO show left out the part about the "valonqar". The ruthless and uncompromising survivalist died while embracing her brother and lover Jaime Lannister, crushed by the collapse of a building that was the symbol of her power.
