The Battle of King's Landing resulted in the death of a multitude of major characters.
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. It's the most authentic connection she's ever had.
For Lena Headey, who played the mercurial ruler for entirety of the popular HBO series, however, the relatively tame way Cersei left the Seven Kingdoms in episode five initially gave her "mixed" feelings.
In the episode, Daenerys Targaryen and her armies had refused to yield after Cersei's Golden Company surrendered, causing mass casualties across the walled city.
"There's a sense of loss that nothing like this will ever happen again", she added. Well, certainly not Cersei for sure because *spoiler alert* the former Queen meets her end. Trapped in an underground passageway, emotional but resigned to their doomed fate, Jaime uttered his final words to Cersei as the walls around them collapsed: "Nothing else matters, only us". He kills Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbeck) and tries to lead her to safety through a secret passage.More news: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Makes Huge Manchester United Admission

Toxic from day dot and love-hated by us mere fans, Cersei died in the arms of her lover and brother Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who was also presumably flattened.
Opening up about the moment Dany decided to "choose violence" after Cersei had surrendered, they continued: "She sees the Red Keep which to her is the home that her family built... and it's that moment when she's looking at that symbol of everything that has been taken from her that she makes the decision to make things personal".
"I think the biggest surprise is he came back for her", she said, referencing Jamie's swift exit from Winterfell after sleeping with Brienne. No, she had much more to do after that after seeing Missandei executed. They leave us in our castles. "Ultimately they belong together". Here are three things we think we'll see. "There was a great sense of grief and an enormous amount of gratitude going on".
Ramsay Bolton warned us, "If you think this has a happy ending you haven't been paying attention".
