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.

As a child, I saw Sleeping Beauty and could not get over how messed up Maleficent was. She cursed a child because she wasn't invited to the birthday party?! Who does that?! Has she never heard of therapy?

She later turns into a dragon to try and kill a prince before he can reach the film's titular character and save the day. It's a downright creepy scene, actually. Short but thrilling.

And what about Cinderella? Who knew Disney movies could introduce us to the horrors of child abuse? The Evil Stepmother needs a therapist, too. (Did you know that both Maleficent and the Evil Stepmother were voiced by the same actress? It probably explains a lot.)

Time flies... before you know it, it's gone. Suppose there are things you really want to do: Getting into certain habits is a lot easier to do when you're younger. It's a lot easier to go to the gym and exercise on a regular basis, for example, when you're in 20s than when you're in your 30s, 40s, or 50s.

But there's nothing wrong with starting now––you'll notice the benefits eventually.

After Redditor Tr0az asked the online community, "What do you wish you started doing from a young age?" people shared their stories.

There are basic life lessons that are life-saving and cost-effective that we are all intimidated by but, in actuality, they take all of a few minutes to acquire. We all condition ourselves to believe that certain skills in life are just too complex for regular joes to master. The truth is... you do not need an Ivy League degree to learn how to clean out the water heater, clip your pet's nails, or change out a toilet. Who knew? So many of us have been forced to acquire new skills while we've been trapped at home and we're going to be better off for it.

Redditor u/goodspeed19 wanted to know what lessons we should all be learning while stuck in quarantine that will make us more useful in the future by asking..... What's a skill you can learn in 30 minutes to one hour that is extremely useful/cool?

When I was heading into high school from middle my guidance counselor and my parents wanted me to enter into "gifted" classes because I was able to maintain a high GPA. They thought it would give me a head start for a great college and then prime me for the Presidency. I protested and negotiated signing up for merely "advanced" classes, God forbid I go with "regular" classes, or we all just get the same education. I have never regretted it.
