'Game of Thrones' star Lena Headey's spoiler for season 8 includes a major clue about Cersei and the dragons
Cersei Lannister had refused to travel North to fight the White Walkers but she might not be safe in her own kingdom of King's Landing.
Cersei Lannister is gradually descending into the abyss of her own madness as the whole of Westeros has traveled North to fight the Night King. Lena Headey's character will be a crucial one in the upcoming Great War not by her involvement but by her absence, and it seems the mad Queen is about to meet her enemies pretty soon. However, it perhaps won't turn out the way we had expected, as Headey in an interview with Virgin Radio’s Chris Evans subtly hinted that Cersei will not be meeting the dragons.
Although like most other stars, Headey kept her mouth sealed for every other question about the show that was being thrown at her when asked if she meets any of the mythical creatures on the show, she revealed, "I do not meet a dragon."
This simple yet revealing statement gives rise to a lot of questions about Season 8. Cersei met Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and her dragons in Season 7 when the White Walker was brought to her to show what danger lies beyond the Wall. In spite of the meeting that she had with the other prominent figures of Westeros, Cersei refused to support them in the fight against the Night King but in her mind, she realized Daenerys had only two dragons, whereas she was supposed to have three.
Now that the Mother of Dragons has already lost one of her children to the Night King and is about to face him in Season 8, will she lose her other two dragons too? Daenerys had planned on marching south after dealing with the White Walkers and taking the throne from Cersei but with Headey's statement, it seems that will not happen. Perhaps Daenerys will finally succumb to the Night King's power and will be killed when she is riding with Drogon to face Viserion and the living dead. However, there might also be the chance that Cersei herself does not survive long enough to meet Daenerys, and hence, she meets no dragons.
As we know from the predictions, Cersei is destined to be killed by a younger brother. Chances are that the younger brother will be Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau )who clearly marches North to fight the White Walkers against his sister's wishes. Since Cersei is the Queen and the army follows her, Jaime will have no option but to kill her before going North and take the army with him. In this case, Cersei will certainly die even before the Great War begins but we still cannot say that for sure unless 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 returns to HBO on April 14.
