Game Of Thrones Final Episode Trailer Teases Epic Ending

Jaime's decision to abandon his friend and new lover Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) in the previous episode, "The Last of the Starks", and return to King's Landing to be with Cersei divided "Thrones" fandom.

The ruthless queen perished in the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, crushed in the Red Keep's cellar as the structure collapsed under the bombardment of Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) dragon attack.

Cersei's plan to withstand the firestorm seemed uncharacteristically weak and uninspired. Dany essentially massacred untold scores of innocent people as a result of her beef with Queen Cersei, who died in what many fans took to Twitter to argue was a very unsatisfying end for her character (there's that word again).

Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was basically a glorified extra in the last few episodes. There was nothing she could do about it.

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. Perhaps the reason she waited to run was that she believed she still had one trick up her red velvet sleeve: wildfire. These were stores of Wildfire, but it's up for debate whether they're left over from the reign of the Mad King Aerys (who famously screamed "burn them all" during the end of Robert's Rebellion, referring to the inhabitants of Kings Landing) or were planted by Cersei herself. If so, they went out together, exactly as they should have.

However, this could be interpreted as ash instead - after Daenerys and her dragon had destroyed the city with fire, making her queen of the ashes.

It's clear the wildfire was meant for something during the battle, but we can only speculate as to what. A wildfire explosion somewhere in between might've still done something to interfere with the ground invasion and bought her some time. Given Cersei's long list of murderous sins, the character by all rights should be considered GoT's outright villain. "I think the biggest surprise is he came back for her. Cersei realizes just how she loves him and just how much he loves her". "I had a lot of great ones - that one with Mark Addy [Robert Baratheon] back in the first season", she says. Her foreboding line about ruling with fear, not love, came to fruition in the most horrific way imaginable. So, die she did. You can bet it's going to be one hell of a closer.
