Game of Thrones' Pilou Asbaek Used to Be Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's Manny!

Game of Thrones' Pilou Asbaek Used to Be Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's Manny!

The destruction brought about the deaths of Jaime, Cersei, the Hound, the Mountain and Qyburn (Varys died earlier in the episode), and while some viewers considered Dany's actions out of character, Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff are standing by the choice.

To referesh your memory: Season 5's premiere began with a flashback to a young Cersei demanding that a witch in the woods named Maggy tell her her future. "They came into the world together and now they leave together". "I don't think she decided ahead of time that she was going to do what she did". The actress didn't think it was in Cersei's character to give in so quickly. You could argue both queens were shown to be acting out of character. If she were to overcome that instinct, she might very well decide to settle down at last, and who else would be a better fit for her than him?

In that last moment, staring at her brother, waiting for the end, Headey says, "It's maybe the first time that Cersei has been at peace". It's disappointing that the writers would choose to use the friendship of these two women in such a way, as a vehicle for the show's female lead to be labeled as "weak", "emotional", and "crazy", but it's even more disturbing to see how they chose to end Missandei's story: by putting her back in chains, robbing her of any autonomy she had gained, and then killing her in such a public, tragic fashion. But, with so many King's Landing players out for the count, Sansa and Bran are sure to make a reappearance.

Jon would no doubt back her and probably be a pretty good knight for her. When they discover the passage is blocked, he comforts Cersei as they wait for the inevitable.

"And if circumstances had been different, I don't think this side of Dany ever would have come out".

"I think that when she says, 'Let it be fear, ' she's resigning herself to the fact that she may have to get things done in a way that isn't pleasant, and she may have to get things done in a way that is terrible to lots of people", Weiss explained, as Benioff confirmed Dany "chose violence". Cersei asked when she would marry the prince that she was betrothed to, and Maggy told her she wouldn't marry the prince, but instead "the king".
