Game Of Thrones Season 8: 11 Characters Who Could Kill Cersei Lannister

Queen Cersei presumably has to go, but who'll be the one to do it?

Game Of Thrones Cersei Death

The Great War is over. Now, it's time for The Last War.

After 71 episodes across the last eight years, there are just two episodes - totalling 160 minutes, give or take - left between now and the end of Game of Thrones. The Long Night has been and gone, Winter came and then went, and with the Night King dead and the living victorious, the show has transitioned back to its more human drama.

And that means Cersei Lannister.

Cersei, despite being the current ruling Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, was largely kept out of things while the fighting went on in the North, as she stayed safe in King's Landing with the Golden Company (and no elephants). Now, however, she's right back in the game. With the Night King and his army defeated, it falls back on Cersei to become, ostensibly, the main villain of this show. She has a huge target on her back, and she's surely not going to make it out alive.

Over the course of the series, Cersei has had everything stripped away from her, but clung on to power. That, and her life, are the last things to be taken, and we should see it happen in these final two episodes (and most likely the finale itself). Cersei has made plenty of enemies along the way, so who's going to be the one to do it?


NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far. A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
