Warning: Spoilers for Season 8, Scene 5 of “Round of Positions of authority” below!
It appears that Lena Headey at first idea her character Cersei Lannister merited better on “Round of Thrones.”
The on-screen character who played a serious scoundrel on the HBO raving success revealed to Stimulation Week after week Monday that her automatic response to her character’s passing on Sunday’s penultimate scene was “mixed.”
“I needed her to have some huge piece or battle with someone,” Headey said she felt at first.
But in the wake of talking the scene over with her co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau — who plays Cersei’s twin sibling and darling, Jaime — Headey had a difference in heart.
“The more we discussed it the more it appeared the ideal end for her,” Headey said. “They appeared on the scene together and now they leave together.”
Season 8, Scene 5 discovered Cersei in very much a predicament.
“She begins off in this last season caught in her very own snare making, as is common with Cersei,” Headey told EW. “She’s urgently troubled and everything that is happened turns out to be more genuine than it ever has for her. She begins to lose control of the circumstance. She’s demolished each great union, association, love in her life — she was constantly bound to be separated from everyone else. What’s more, until the extremely, absolute a minute ago, she is, as ever, trying to claim ignorance of what’s really happening.”
Soon after Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) goes full Frantic Ruler on Lord’s Arrival, everything around the generally ascertaining Cersei slips into blazing disarray. She has no clue that Jaime has deserted his companion and newly discovered darling, Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) to come back to her in her most noteworthy time of need.
When Jaime discovers Cersei in the Red Keep, close to a similar guide of Westeros in which they left, the two endeavor to get away. When they understand they’re damned, Cersei starts to panic.
“Please don’t give me a chance to kick the bucket,” she says as she and Jaime grasp. “I would prefer not to die.”
Jaime, be that as it may, realizes their destiny is sealed.
“Look at me — simply take a gander at me,” he advises her. “Nothing else matters. Just us.”
The dividers around them at that point disintegrate to the ground, taking the darling twins with them.
Their passings do adjust perfectly with Jaime’s story bend, be that as it may. When we initially met the kin in Season 1, Scene 1, Jaime was a man who might do anything for Cersei — which incorporated the endeavored homicide of a youngster to ensure their affection. In spite of the fact that Jaime attempted reclamation, it eventually wasn’t his identity. Presently, as the arrangement wraps up, he keeps up a similar center he had first and foremost — nothing matters aside from his prohibited love for his sister.
It likewise lines up with an admission Jaime made in Season 5 when Bronn (Jerome Flynn) asks him how he needs to die.
“In the arms of the lady I cherish,” Jaime says, to which Bronn adroitly responds:
“She need the equivalent thing?”
We’ll never know precisely how Cersei needed to bite the dust — yet her last minutes, wherein she reveals to Jaime various occasions that she wouldn’t like to bite the dust, make it really certain that being pounded by rubble and covered alive wasn’t what she intended.
And despite the fact that the Lannister twins’ passing scene gave the group of onlookers a genuine and delicate last minute with a couple at first idea of as totally yucky, it likewise seemed to sell Cersei short.
Maybe Headey had the correct motivation about her character’s passing. Cersei was a smart yet a completely fleshed-out miscreant overflowing proudly, hate for sexual orientation legislative issues and wild, savage love. Furthermore, despite the fact that she was control crazed and near unadulterated malice at last, maybe she showed improvement over satisfying her darling’s wish.
