“Game of Thrones” has just added the number of casualties following the bloodbath in the sixth season finale. In “The Winds of Winter” that aired Sunday, June 26, Cersei made a big move to destroy her enemies in King’s Landing once and for all [SPOILER ALERT!] by setting them, including Margaery and the High Sparrow, on fire during the trial.
What she didn’t expect was that her son Tommen killed himself in reaction to his wife’s death. Cersei was then surprisingly named the first Queen of Westeros and is sitting on the Iron Throne. Speaking to EW, Lena Headey who plays the character says despite the fact that Cersei has always wanted control, she never wanted the Iron Throne.
