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

Dracarys: The Meaning Of Dany's Dragon Command In Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones rose in popularity for a number of reasons, but one of the foremost was that its storytelling was so interesting and dense and unlike anything else on television. And that's because she no longer has anyone left. Sansa rode a white horse when she went to meet Ramsay for the first time. Do you feel that the end of Cersei Lannister's storyline was ideal? Since we are literally a week away from how this series is going to end, expect fans to just be happy knowing that the show is over.

Warning: The following post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season 8, episode 5. She only took action when she was finally convinced the city had fallen.

[My reaction was] mixed.

'The name is unique and I also wanted her to be like Khaleesi, ' she said.

After the buildings collapsed on Cersei and Jamie, most fans assumed the pair died together. She knows how to fight back, and fight dirty. "The more we talked about it the more it seemed like the ideal end for her".

Since Daenerys was the all-powerful Khaleesi throughout much of Game of Thrones and embodied a no-compromise, badass approach to ruling and "getting what's hers", not to mention the fact that she's the mother of friggin' dragons, a lot of moms named their kids after her.

Cersei Lannister and Jaime Lannister stayed together until they died in "The Bells", and Coster-Waldau posted an emotional and amusing statement on working with Headey for 10 years: "The best, sweetest most wonderful sister from another mother @iamlenaheadey". Xbox has also teased the possibility of a Game of Thrones video game project of some kind, but that has yet to be revealed, if it even exists at all. Tonight's episode, however, proved them wrong.

The Daily Beast quoted one parent of a Khaleesi as saying she was "in shock", while The Cut spoke to another who said "I don't think she did anything wrong".

Digital Spy point out how both Jon and Dany - who are now the two main contenders as Targaryens for the Iron Throne - constantly make bad decisions. As die-hard fans of the show already know, Headey's character mercilessly executed Missandei in front of her enemies and kick-started the Last War in episode four. That was not exactly on-brand for the Breaker of Chains.

"There she goes. It's been fun, and bonkers", Headey wrote in the caption.

Regardless, a lot of viewers were surprised at Dany's insane switch turning on just like that. 'I think she did what she had to do'.

HBO's epic fantasy drama based on George R.R. Martin's novel series "A Song of Fire and Ice". The prophecy says, "Three [children] for you". Valonqar is the High Valyrian word for "little brother", and Jaime was the twin born after Cersei.

Game of Thrones writers have explained the latest plot arc in the penultimate episode of the hit television show as viewers around the world prepare for the final episode to be aired next week.
