Game of Thrones Season 8: What’s Next For Cersei Lannister?



Maybe no character this side of the Narrow Sea has seen her fortunes change so quickly on Game of Thrones as Cersei Lannister. Which is even more noteworthy since she has, in fact talking, been in a similar area the entire arrangement: an overlaid pen that is settled by a seat of intensity. Be that as it may, it wasn't until ongoing seasons this took the state of real control, and even some genuinely shrewd game moves after a progression of strategic mistakes that almost cost her beginning and end.

Without a doubt, the lady who incidentally instituted the name of the TV arrangement—"When you play the game of thrones, you win or you pass on"— has battled powerfully at the game, and gone from patient and endless supply of a seething moron to boss modeler of his demise, and afterward a defenseless keep an eye on her child. Her foolishness even in the long run drove this ruler mother to welcome the scalawags into her circle in a urgent offer to cling to her temporary power. The outcome was a man centric and guilefully sexist disgracing in the roads, and what had all the earmarks of being a finished annihilation.

But at this point here she sits, broken over the loss of her kids, to some degree beaten over the dread of a somber future, however not vanquished. Never crushed. Truth be told, she has kept herself neighboring the Iron Throne's gravity, or at its focal point, the entire arrangement. What's more, presently she is employing it as the arrangement's definitive Big Bad. Yes, in the event that I needed to bet, she ought to try and outlast the Night King on that check. She is the last living individual from Game of Thrones' group who still needs to play that doomed game. Which will make her perilous until the very end. So exactly what will that end resemble?

While the savage Daenerys Targaryen has chosen to put a transient end on threats as she joins the dashing Jon Snow to battle the White Walkers toward the North, Cersei has no such aim of yielding this sort of intensity. Goodness beyond any doubt, she guaranteed she would send her residual powers to the domain's guard against an Army of the Dead, yet Cersei is clearly not regarding that vow. Other than her increasingly kind-hearted twin and darling, none of her powers are leaving King's Landing.

Also, can you completely accuse her? Daenerys grilled 33% of her military in season 7, for what reason would it be a good idea for her to group with Dany before getting the rest smoked? While the White Walkers are an existential danger, one doesn't have to go to Game of Thrones' medieval motivation to search out pioneers who disregard powers of nature for transient preferred standpoint. Also, for Cersei, that favorable position will come in the appearance of renewing her powers by purchasing another military of sellswords from the Golden Company. Will it be sufficient to break Daenerys and the North's brought together power, total with two mythical beasts?

… Probably not, yet that is the reason she is picking up a major favorable position by damning Winterfell to what is certain to be a prophetically calamitous fight that is denied of its guaranteed powers. By and by, I can envision a situation where directly after Jon and Dany's militaries (scarcely) endure the Night King's assault, and Winterfell lies in remains, Cersei and her military walk on their broke powers. She could even appreciate a broad triumph if the Night King can take out Dany's other two mythical serpents.

However, I do not think this will be how it ultimately plays out. We know there will be two major, separate battles in Game of Thrones Season 8 that will be parted by an episode (director Miguel Sapochnik, helmer of “The Battle of the Bastards,” is directing the third and fifth episodes of the six-episode season). While the first is almost certainly the long teased Battle for the Dawn at Winterfell—where else would the White Walkers be headed when they marched south of Eastwatch?—it will not be the only one. The other, I’d estimate, is a battle for the Iron Throne.

Game of Thrones isn’t Lord of the Rings, even with an existential threat like the White Walkers, the show benefits from being about the weaknesses of human integrity, and none of the living monarchs are weaker of integrity than Cersei Lannister. After Jon and Dany’s forces endure the Night King, they will be made to fight for the Iron Throne against a rested and formidable military might in King’s Landing. History will see echoes, with a Mad Queen sitting above a city she is ready to torch rather than surrender. And on the off-chance that the Night King defeats Winterfell, Cersei will take on the Dead and living alike, sipping from a chalice of wine and with a malevolent smile across her face.
