The Game of Thrones season 8 is less than a month away and there is a lot to revisit as several prominent characters are set to lay claim on the coveted Iron Throne, currently held by Cersei Lannister.
Played by Lena Headey, Cersei now stands alone with only The Mountain by her side as her twin brother Jaime Lannister walked away to join the ‘good side’ in the war against the Night King and his skeletal army.
Cersei has always been selfish and ruthless character, one who could go to any length for her and Jaime’s three children. But the death of her kids in the previous seasons only added to her ferocity.
While Ramsay Bolton was the most cruel character on the show, Cersei can now rightfully be called the most ruthless of them all after the former was fed to the dogs by Sansa.
From encouraging Jaime to push little Bran to his death to blowing up the Sept of Baelor, killing the entire gathering of the High Sparrow, her son Tommen’s wife Margaery Tyrell and brother Loras Tyrell, Cersei’s barbarism has only seen new heights in each season.
Thirsty for her own brother Tyrion Lannister’s blood after Joffrey’s death, Cersei did not shy away from dragging him to court while pressing for his execution. She had earlier threatened to kill his girlfriend Shae if Joffrey died in a battle.
Cersei’s wrath knew no bounds when she avenged her daughter Myrcella’s death, orchestrated by Ellaria Sand and the Sand Snakes.
She poisoned Ellaria’s daughter in a similar manner and left her to helplessly witness her slow death in captivity.
The Queen in King’s Landing had her own share of grief as she was compelled to take the walk of shame, naked and wounded. But she made sure to avenge it the way she thought was just. She handed over nun Unella to The Mountain and shut the door by repeating her words, ‘shame, shame, shame’.
