"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. The final season has not been a fan favorite as we approach the series finale next week.
"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.
"The more we talked about it the more it seemed like the flawless end for her", Headey said.
Last night's episode of Game of Thrones turned out to be devastating for some fans. Cersei was kept mostly on the sidelines for the first five episodes, just watching the action play out - or off screen while the action focused on Winterfell.
In response to Cersei's refusal to bend the knee and her savage murder of Missandei, Daenerys responded in Game of Thrones' penultimate episode by climbing onto her remaining dragon and descending upon Kings Landing to rain down fiery vengeance the way we've been waiting for her to do all season.
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. She knows how to fight back, and fight dirty. Maggy warned that she might not like what she hears, but after tasting a few drops of Cersei's blood, agreed to answer three questions. 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.
Jon Snow (Kit Harington) who is not only the rightful heir to the Iron Throne but also the most competent leader has said numerous times he doesn't want it. The actress didn't think it was in Cersei's character to give in so quickly. But [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] obviously know what they're doing and were adamant Cersei would do what she had to do.
