Lena Headley had 'mixed' feeling over Cersei Lannister's big moment — SPOILER ALERT

Sign up for Decider's Game Of Thrones newsletter - it's everything you need to get you prepared for the final season! Well, certainly not Cersei for sure because *spoiler alert* the former Queen meets her end. She only took action when she was finally convinced the city had fallen. She's not a swordsman or anything, but she usually has another trick up her sleeve. Yes, Jaime and Cersei die together in the most handsome way, because together in the womb and together in the tomb. No, she had much more to do after that after seeing Missandei executed.

After Jamie killed Cersei's new lover Euron Greyjoy, he tried to lead her to safety through a secret passage but when their path was blocked with rubble, he comforted Cersei as they awaited their demise together and were ultimately killed by the Red Keep's collapse.

Throughout Game of Thrones, Jaime and Cersei had a codependent relationship. The things I do for love.

Daenerys has that vision while she's in the House of the Undying, back in the good old Quarth days.

According to Eurohoops sources, Porzingis was attacked by six or seven unidentified persons who hit him with a chair. According to TMZ Sports , Porzingis was confronted by Russians who were upset about the Knicks' trade with Dallas.


Sadly, it seems Daenerys needed to switch to decaf ahead of the May 12 episode because (once again, SPOILER ALERT) everybody died. Chief among the complaints is the fact that the Mad Queen premise might've actually worked and made sense for the character's end, had it been given the requisite time to percolate after the threat of the Night King was eliminated.

Lena, 45, told Entertainment Weekly she had "mixed feelings" about her character's abrupt ending as she hoped Cersei would have a "big piece" or die in a dramatic fight. Given Cersei's long list of murderous sins, the character by all rights should be considered GoT's outright villain.

I kept saying, 'She wouldn't, she wouldn't, that she would keep fighting. That's the part of Maggy the Frog's prophecy that said, "When your tears have drowned you, the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you".

The second-to-last episode of Game of Thrones aired Sunday, and brought a fiery shower of dragon's breath, stabbing, eye-gouging and structural damage along with it.
