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.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
