Cersei’s controversial death has inspired the funniest Game of Thrones memes…
Cersei finally met her match in Game of Thrones season 8, episode 5 but fans aren’t impressed and the memes sum up how angry people are.
Who died in Game of Thrones? Every death in season 8 so far
Ever since Game of Thrones began, viewers have been eager to see Cersei Lannister die. Over the course of eight seasons, she has consistently killed people in her pursuit of power and shown no care at all for the citizens in the kingdom she rules over. With that in mind, it should come as no shock that viewers expected (and wanted) her to get killed in the show’s final season. However, now that it’s seemingly happened, fans are outraged by what kills her.
Is Cersei dead? Did Cersei and Jaime actually survive?
Cersei has many enemies and it seemed likely that season 8 would see one of them finally get revenge and kill her. Arya and Daenerys both had plenty of reasons to personally take Cersei down, and yet they did not. People also theorised that Jaime might complete his redemption arc by assassinating her, and yet he did not. Instead, Jaime returns to Cersei and attempts to run away with with her.
If that weren’t enough, a human being doesn’t even kill Cersei. After watching Daenerys burn King’s Landing to the ground, Cersei tries to flee with Jaime but they get stuck. Crying Cersei says “I don’t want to die”, Jaime then holds her in his arms and comforts her, as the Red Keep collapses above them, and they seemingly die. After eight seasons, one of TV’s best villains is killed by a rock.
There is a chance that Cersei and Jaime are still alive – we never see their bodies and they could possibly escape the rubble – but it seems most likely that the rocks killed them and they are gone for good. Given how anti-climatic the ending is, it makes sense that fans are outraged. With that in mind, we’ve gathered together the best memes in reaction to Cersei’s death.
How everyone is feeling right now.
A visual representation of what happened.
To think some of us thought that Jaime had changed?
You know what that is? The opposite of growth.
Granted the killer was a plot twist.
We definitely didn’t see it coming…
…because it’s a terrible ending.
Shout out to everyone who had an unfulfilled theory.
Just gonna pretend that one of these happened.
One or two viewers are stating facts.
I need to believe Cersei isn’t dead. It makes no sense after all that build up over the years, that she would just die in the arms of the love of her life. The writing cannot possibly be so bad as to allow that.
