Game of Thrones SPOILERS are here, so if you don't want them, steer clear!


"The Bells," the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, saw the deliciously devilish Cersei Lannister and her twin brother, Jamie, meet their ends, crushed to death in the collapse of the Red Keep.

Actress Lena Headey played Cersei to enormous acclaim over the last eight years. She took to Instagram to pen a goodbye to the character so many of us loved to hate.

It was a short and sweet message, but Headey managed to say it all:

"There she goes. It's been fun, and bonkers. I loved her. I am grateful for the opportunity. Massively thankful for your encouraging and supportive love along the way. And now her watch is ended (I know she'd never make it, Nights watch wouldn't have her .. but still..)"

A bunch of Headey's celebrity fans, including her costar John Bradley West (Samwell Tarly), praised her and sent her well wishes for playing perhaps the most definitive villainess of the last decade.

Headey also took her fans on a little trip down memory lane, sharing a photo of herself with her costar Nathalie Emmanuel, who played Daenerys Targaryen's aide Missandei.

Cersei had Missandei beheaded in "The Last of the Starks," so it's good to see that Emmanuel and Headey are such good friends off screen!


She also shared a photo of herself and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (who played Jamie Lannister) on set.

Headey has earned rave reviews from the start of the show.

She described her last day on set as an emotional one in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:

"I told Nikolaj, 'I've never seen you so sweet and sentimental.' And he's all, 'What's happening to me?' We kept cuddling going 'I love you.' It was weird. There's a sense of loss that nothing like this will ever happen again. There was a great sense of grief and an enormous amount of gratitude going on."

Farewell, Cersei. You will always be our Queen.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
