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.

People Divulge The Scariest Thing That's Ever Happened To Them

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
