Lena Headey reacts to that King's Landing battle ending

Helen Sloan- HBO

The creators of Game of Thrones made a very deliberate choice to not only have Missandei be the one captured by Euron Greyjoy - though she was, presumably, already on a skiff headed for shore when the fleet was attacked - but grant her a death that felt, at best, undeserved, and at worst, like a deliberate insult to the character and everything she represents.

Just because Cersei and the Night King are gone does not mean another battle for the throne is off the cards, then, as otherwise, Game of Thrones season 8 would have ended with episode 5.

After eight seasons of outwitting her enemies in the nick of time, Cersei Lannister's rule is finally over. "I don't think she decided ahead of time that she was going to do what she did". Dany essentially massacred untold scores of innocent people as a result of her beef with Queen Cersei, who died in what many fans took to Twitter to argue was a very unsatisfying end for her character (there's that word again). The actress didn't think it was in Cersei's character to give in so quickly.

Headey said the ending was especially great for Jaime's arc. But, with so many King's Landing players out for the count, Sansa and Bran are sure to make a reappearance.

Now several theories have emerged as to what inspired the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to call the seventh-in-line to the throne. As the grandchild of the next Monarch, the public was expecting a more traditionally British name like Albert or James.

"I think he knows that they belong together, they came into this world together, that they need to go out of this world together", Weiss surmised. She's also someone who has had really close friendships and close advisors for her entire run of this show.

Screen shots of his final scene - in which he embraces Cersei (Lena Headey) as the Red Keep goes up in flames - seems to contradict episode history. She knows how to fight back, and fight dirty. 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. "I told Nikolaj, 'I've never seen you so sweet and sentimental.' And he's all, 'What's happening to me?' We kept cuddling going 'I love you.' It was weird".

After being collected from his chambers, he was brought to Dany, where she waited with her single remaining dragon, Drogon, and let rip with a "dracarys".

Asked about her favorite Cersei scenes across her long list of standout moments, Headey chose a few.
