Cersei Lannister A Queen of Nothing: In the season 6 finale, Cersei Lannister had her epic revenge on her enemies and guilty as charged I even cheered for her. She burnt the Sept of Baelor to the ground using the wildfire, killing the High Sparrow & the entire faith clan and the Tyrells’ (Lord Mace Tyrell, Margery Tyrell, Loras Tyrell). During the reign of Mad King, wildfire was buried all across Kings Landing, Qyburn found the whole cache under the Sept and told Cersei that it’s for real (not just a rumor). She executed the most diabolical act which even Mad King failed to pull off as he was stabbed by Jaime Lannister (then Kingsguard). She was anointed as the “Queen of Westeros” after her son Tommen committed suicide by jumping out of the window. The ancient prophecy is now fulfilled which said that she will be alive to see her children die one after the other. She is now “the Mad Queen”.
Westeros has come a full circle, once Robert Baratheon led the rebellion against the Targaryen rule and now Daenerys Targaryen is uniting the realm to break the wheel and usher in a new era of fairness and compassion. She has begun her invasion of Westeros with the huge armada, the Greyjoys, the unsullied, the Dothraki horde and the three dragons. She made Tyrion Lannister as the “Hand of the Queen”. Lord Varys has successfully forged a “fire & blood” alliance with House Martell and House Tyrell.
Lord Randall Tarly (father of Samwell Tarly) will not mind placing a Targaryen onto the Iron Throne, infact they fought with the Mad King in the great war. House Tully will most likely re-capture Riverrun as Freys are assassinated by Arya Stark of Winterfell. Moreover, Jon Snow has been declared “the King in the North” as Starks defeated Boltons with the help of Knights of the Vale.
What is Cersei’s game plan? She is the Queen, but for how long can she sustain it. The Crown is deeply in debt, Tyrells control the grain supplies, she has no allies anywhere and people hate her. The show has set her up to be the big villain for the next season. Let’s see how far Cersei Lannister goes and for how long she survives. CHEERS!
