    Lets have this be full of Deep character development with moral ambiguity!
    No. Rocks fall everyone dies.

      Cersei is Westeros's most paradoxical misogynist. She recognizes that women are treated like shit and strives to be treated equally to men, but doesn't want to extend that privilege to other women, calling them "bitches", "whores", and even making rape jokes about them. She even laments that she was born a woman and thinks that makes her weak. Cersei is honestly one of the best written characters on the show, because she encompasses so many flawed, yet powerful people in real life, like Phyllis Schlafly, Margaret Thatcher, or Ivanka Trump.

                  Hi, just had a thought (I'm still reading the books, so if I'm wrong be kind about it, yeah?) Anyway, what if the more beautiful woman is actually her daughter? If she's only been attacked in the books and not comfirmed dead (via corpse) maybe Myrcella will supplant her mother in the books? Idk, just a random thought...

                              Why didn't Dany get the crown she wore when she went 2 Qarth? HBO couldn't spring 4 the 3 Dragon Crown?! Cersei needed 2 die a grisly a death-like being eaten by Drogon! Vengeance 4 Rhaegal!! I guess D&D totally forgot about all the prophecies and magic in the books! Oh wait, D/D kinda forgot about it!!! They really screwed up the last season and in S7 when Viserion was killed! Dragon scales are quite tough! Dany should have flown off without Jon Snow, he was saved by Benjen cold hands!

                                The more videos I see about what could have happened, the more I'm convinced they did ended the show in the literal worst way they could have.

                                                            Cersei would've been great if she actually was as smart as she thought she was.

                                                              I felt like what Cersei lacks is not only just the cock...there were historical female characters who could also rule and dominate the politics without their male counterparts undermine them. Cersei needs to change her political strategies and be patient rather than wasting time on hating her female identity.
