The worst things Cersei Lannister has ever done

The season finale of Game of Thrones airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on HBO. Valonqar is the High Valyrian word for "little brother", and Jaime was the twin born after Cersei.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, actress Lena Headey, 45, opened up about Cersei's demise, admitting her reaction to the character's final scene was "mixed" at first. Her choice to do this resulted in the deaths of Cersei and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), and probably set Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) against her. "I don't think she decided ahead of time that she was going to do what she did".

She came around to the idea of dying in her brother-lover Jaime's arms, however, explaining, "The more we talked about it the more it seemed like the flawless end for her". Missandei began the show in chains and grew into a woman of power in her own right, wielding influence over her queen when she could. Given Cersei's long list of murderous sins, the character by all rights should be considered GoT's outright villain.

The Bells saw Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) transform into the Mad Queen as she had the chance to capture King's Landing with minimal casualties, but chose instead to burn the entire city. "They came into the world together and now they leave together". She's also someone who has had really close friendships and close advisors for her entire run of this show. And while things turned into a "moral free for all", with the good guys becoming the bad guys, it was always their intention to see Clegane Bowl come to life.

In fact, Headey said she found closure in Cersei and Jaime's moment together before the Red Keep tumbles.

Iran says does not expect a war with US

Attack in Pakistan’s China zone leaves 4 dead
People look at the Pear Continental Hotel after an attack Saturday killed a Pakistani navy soldier and four hotel employees. The Chinese embassy in Pakistan said: "We appreciate the courageous steps taken by Pakistan Army and security agencies".

Headey said the ending was especially great for Jaime's arc. When they discover the passage is blocked, he comforts Cersei as they wait for the inevitable.

"I love you", Jon said.

After surviving the Battle of Winterfell but losing half her armies, Daenerys insisted on traveling back to Dragonstone, her ancestral seat.

Clarke was honest when she said that filming her final scenes - which happened just months earlier - was "so sad". 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".
