So much Cersei talk after #GoT finale. So funny how many people actually had hope that she would be a redeeming character.
These two scenes tell you all you need to know about Cersei "The Mad Queen". She is ambitious and smart. But her ambition is near sighted. She hates the old world where she was nothing more than a meek voice among dumb burly men. Cersei wanted true power. Absolute power. And she has no pity for any fools who underestimate her.
So if Cersei surprises you its your own fault.
