'Game of Thrones' star Lena Headey makes fun of Cersei's death with hilarious Instagram video
Game of Thrones is known for its shocking twists and brutal death scenes, but some of the ways characters were offed this season didn't satisfy the fans that have stuck with the series for so long.
Most people were focused on Daenerys, whose slow stroll into rage-fuelled madness accelerated into a full-on gallop in season eight, episode five.
Here's the moment Daenerys turned to the dark side:
But that wasn't the only thing people were upset about. There was also Jaime, who left Brienne the same night they finally got together, only to head all the way back to King's Landing to meet up with Cersei and save her from the violence.
Along the way, he ran afoul of Euron Greyjoy, in a brutal fight that wasn't too popular either. After he killed the would-be king, sustaining a fatal wound himself, he staggered through the capital until he found his sister/love-of-his-life and helped her escape. But as it turned out, escaping wasn't on the cards - with the two of them perishing as the ceiling collapsed on them both.
Here's that dramatic death scene. Does it satisfy you?:
The death was pretty controversial, with many hoping that Arya would get to fulfil her wish to take down Cersei after all these years being on her kill list. Most felt that it would be a dark twist if it was Jaime who had to kill the Queen. Others wanted it to be Daenerys, who was otherwise occupied torching the citizens of the city.
Mostly, people just wanted her to go in a more grand way than she did.
Now that nearly a week has passed, people are getting even more cavalier about the spoilers, with Lena Headey even recreating her own death on Instagram in a hilarious fashion.
See the actress recreate her death with a very funny twist:
"The more we talked about it the more it seemed like the perfect end for her," the actress said of her last moments in an interview with Entertainment Weekly earlier this week. "They [Jaime and Cersei] came into the world together and now they leave together."
Whether she's doing this to make fun of an ending she also thinks was lackluster is up for debate, but it is pretty funny either way.
