As if Cersei and Jaime Lannister's relationship wasn't weird enough, it sounds like it's about to get a whole lot weirder in Season 6. Season 5 was certainly no easy ride for Cersei: she spent half of it in a prison cell being hit with a spoon, her only daughter was assassinated right under Jaime's nose and to top it off, she had to endure what was truly one of the most brutal things we've ever seen on Game of Thrones: the Walk of Shame.
Now that her ordeal is finally over, it's only natural that Cersei will want to seek revenge on the High Sparrow and his fellow faith militants, and it looks like she'll be enlisting Jaime to help her. Lena Headey, the actress behind the callous queen mother, told Entertainment Weekly:
“It’s probably her most interesting season. She really has nothing to lose and she has everything to gain from a horrible position she finds herself in. Her relationship with Jaime is at an all-time weird level. It’s juicy, and it’s so fucking dark.”
Could we be any more excited?! She also posted a series of tantalizing tweets on Twitter earlier this month.
Lena's tease comes just a few days after show runners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss told Entertainment Weekly that Season 6 is going to be the best one yet. Benioff said:
“Dan and I talk about this a lot. This is not us trying to hype it. Usually there’s an episode or two we’re kind of nervous about, that didn’t turn out as well as we hoped. This season there is not a weak episode. We had great directors who knew what they were doing...We thought at the script stage it might be our strongest season. Then the episodes came in better than we hoped. We’re always reluctant to say it’s ‘the best season yet’ because so much of that is in the eyes of the beholder. And Dan and I are so close to it that it’s impossible to be unbiased. But that’s my sense – watching them all together now, this is the best one we’ve done. It’s also the one I’m proudest of, because it was the hardest.”
And as if we weren't already on the edge of our seats, writer/producer Bryan Cogman revealed that the producers have filmed the show's most epic battle sequence yet. He told Entertainment Weekly:
“It’s definitely the biggest. We’ve always wanted to get to a place – story-wise and budget-wise and time-wise and resource-wise – where we would be able to do a proper battle, with one army on one side, one army on another side.”
But which armies is he talking about?! And why was this season in particular so hard to film? I guess we'll have to wait until April 24 to find out. If the suspense is killing you too, here's the latest trailer to keep you going:
What do you think the future holds for Cersei and Jaime?
