Cersei Lannister, one of the most spectacular anti-heroines of television, has bit the dust. Literally. The penultimate episode of HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones, had Jaime Lannister aka the Kingslayer and the Mother of Madness (as Cersei was once referred to by Tyrion), die each others arms, under a pile of debris.
The Queen, in her heyday had concocted a regicide, endured the walk of shame, and faced the death of all her children. She had destroyed her enemies such as the High Sparrow in the most cruel and gruesome manner, and had a penchant for an unending stream of manipulations and slander. So, to watch her die in tears, as the city crumbled and fell on her and her twin brother, was in all probability, a little underwhelming.
Cersei was a complex character, right from the beginning. She had mastered the art of statesmanship and her thirst for control over the Seven Kingdoms drove her to extremes beyond measure. So, when death came in the form of buildings falling on her head, it was a little less spectacular than what could have been expected for the Mother of Madness.
All theories around Jaime killing Cersei or Arya ticking her off her list amounted to nothing. Fans who have been following the show for years do not seem to be happy. Many took to Twitter to voice their disappointment about how their favourite villain was destroyed at last.
Check out some of the Twitter reactions to Cersei's death.
