In the most stunning finale in Game of Thrones' history, Cersei is named Queen of Westeros after the death of Tommen earlier in the episode. Given that the title belonged to a long line of men who came before her, is Cersei Queen of the Andals on Game of Thrones? Hell yes she is — and least for now — that should terrifying the living wildfire out of every last man, woman, child, and dragon in Westeros. Cersei's path to the Iron Throne is what I imagine the road to hell is paved with, only her intentions aren't worthy of being mislabeled as "good." Cersei is well aware of what she's doing and she sees absolutely no problem with her behavior.
Ever since Cersei was punished with the Walk of Shame throughout King's Lady at the hands of the Faith, Season 6 has given birth to an all-new terror for the Queen Mother. Her goal has been clear ever since she made it back inside the walls of the castle: She will do whatever — kill whomever — she needs to in order to protect herself. The only problem, however, was that doing so cost her whatever remaining shards of a family she had left.
Regardless of whether or not it was actually going to come true, Tommen's death confirms the prophecy made about Cersei all those years ago. And its confirmation has turned Cersei Lannister into the ruthless, coldblooded leader that Tywin Lannister would've loved. The only problem is that I'm not sure Cersei will have anyone left in her corner when all is said and done. As she's gifted the seat on the Iron Throne, you can all but feel the chill in the room as the remaining people of King's Landing observe their new queen. In case it wasn't already obvious, it isn't love and affection in their eyes. It's fear. Terror. Hatred. And in true Cersei Lannister fashion, she throws it right back at them. But it's the icy, cold glare she gives Jaime that makes my stomach turn.
If there is one person to stay on Team Cersei throughout all her destruction, it's her lover and brother. Only now, I'm not so sure that's the case. Tommen killed himself because of his mother's actions — and I'm hard-pressed to find any way Cersei can spin his fall to make it look less so. Tommen was, of course, their child: as much Jaime's as he was Cersei's. And after watching his two children murdered in front of him, I doubt Jaime Lannister will take the suicide of his last living son sitting down.
Cersei Lannister may be sitting on the Iron Throne, and Dany may be finally headed West with a fleet of ships and her three dragons, but if there's anyone to truly fear in King's Landing right now, it's Jaime Lannister.
