Game of Thrones deleted a key scene about Cersei that answers a major plothole
Just one of the many issues in Season 8...
In terms of things in Westeros that have holes in them, the list is quite extensive.
There's Rickon Stark who was turned into a human pincushion by Ramsay Botlon at the Battle of the Bastards. Yara Greyjoy's fleet had more holes in it than a sieve after it was destroyed by Euron Greyjoy. Elsewhere, Viserion blew a hole in The Wall that was big enough to let the army of the dead pass.
However, it's likely that the most holes in Game of Thrones can be found in the scripts for the final season because as stated stated before, we have questions. Lots and lots of questions.
Well, it appears that one of the big ones regarding Cersei has finally been answered because during a recent Q&A, Lena Headey (Cersei) was asked about her character's pregnancy plotline.
Cast your mind back to the Season 7 finale at the Dragonpit.
At the time, Jon Snow's honour and nobility almost destroyed things when he told Cersei that he would not be loyal to House Lannister because he had already sworn his allegiance to Daenerys.
Tyrion elegantly put it "we're fucked," but Tyrion went to parlay with Cersei and in doing so, he begged her to help build a better world because the dead are coming and they'll destroy everything in their path (more optimistic times).
After offering Cersei a glass of wine, the Queen rejects it and the penny finally drops for Tyrion, he knows that his sister is pregnant.
Fast forward to Season 8 and the scene after Euron Greyjoy and Cersei have sex. There's a moment where we see her sipping on some wine and she has a forlorn look on her face.
During a recent appearance at a German Comic Con, Headey confirmed that Cersei was actually pregnant with Jamie’s child, their fourth together.
On top of that news, Headey says she filmed a miscarriage for Cersei in season seven, but it was deleted from the final cut of the show. Thus, it never became canon.
“We shot a scene that never made it into Season Seven which was where I lose the baby and it was a really traumatic, great moment for Cersei. And it never made it in and I kind of loved doing that because I thought it would have served her differently," she said.
After previously discussing some of the aspects of Season 8 that left her a bit cold, we're praying that the Game of Thrones prequel can create a character that's as interesting, complex, and wonderful as Cersei.
Take a look at what Headey had to say on that scene.
