Warning: There are spoilers ahead for last night's Game of Thrones!
Peter Dinklage, who plays Lena's on-screen brother Tyrion Lannister, recommended the HBO bosses cast the 300 star in the epic fantasy series.
This may be something of a throwaway because Arya has never once shown an aptitude or interest in leadership, but since she is the person who killed the Night King (and thus thousands of White Walkers and wights), we can't overlook Bronn's (Jerome Flynn) pointed comment from last week about how it's hardcore cutthroats who kill thousands and get made into a king - or in this case, a queen. She only took action when she was finally convinced the city had fallen.
The cruel Queen died wrapped in the arms of her brother Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) when the roof of the Red Keep collapsed in the dramatic Battle of King's Landing.
[My reaction was] mixed. It would've been cool to see Cersei have some kind of fight showdown with Dany or Arya, or anyone. He knows that she's no ordinary lady, and there's no way he would try to make her a knit-happy do-nothing like she feared so well in the beginning of the show.
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 flawless end for her".
'I think the biggest surprise is he came back for her. Cersei realises just how she loves him and just how much he loves her. "You look at those people who have been closest to her for such a long time, and nearly all of them have either turned on her or died, and she's very much alone", Benioff recapped.
Throughout Game of Thrones, Jaime and Cersei had a codependent relationship. Rather than just executing the two of them, Cersei has Ellaria and Tyene chained up in the dungeon, facing each other, and, in true Batman villain style, poisons Tyene with a kiss. They belong together. They were a toxic couple right from the first episode. Even if Cersei were the type to forgive, this would be a pretty difficult one to get over, but she is not, and decides to go harder to avenge her daughter.
