The Broken Man
It is implied that she knows Tyrion's guilt is highly unlikely, but just wants to see him dead, though Jaime refuses to carry out the order. When Tyrion demands a trial by combat, Cersei quickly chooses Ser Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane as her champion to diminish Tyrion's chances of acquittal, and has Bronn betrothed to a noblewoman so that Tyrion cannot choose him as his champion.
Cersei's wish comes true when Tyrion's champion, Oberyn Martell, is killed by Clegane, but she still refuses to marry Loras, even threatening her father with revealing the truth about her relationship with Jaime and the parentage of her children. Tywin rebuffs her threats, though he himself is killed by an escaping Tyrion soon afterwards. Season 5[ edit ] Cersei receives a threat from Dorne, where Myrcella is betrothed to Trystane Martell, and sends Jaime to Dorne to retrieve her. Fearful of losing her power, Cersei meets religious leader the High Sparrow, appointing him as the High Septon and giving him authority to re-establish the Faith Militant.
In order to destabilise House Tyrell, Cersei arranges for the High Sparrow to arrest Loras for his homosexuality, with Margaery also arrested for perjury after lying to defend Loras. However, Cersei's plot backfires when Lancel, now a member of the Faith Militant, confesses to his affair with Cersei and his role in Robert's assassination, and also accuses Cersei of incest, prompting the High Sparrow to arrest her.
Cersei is eventually allowed to return to the Red Keep after confessing to adultery with Lancel, but has her hair cut off and is forced to walk naked through the streets of King's Landing as atonement. Cersei returns distraught by the abuse directed at her by the smallfolk of King's Landing, but is consoled by Qyburn's successful reanimation of Ser Gregor Clegane. Though Cersei accepts Tommen's apology for his lack of action in her arrest and walk of atonement, she remains looked down upon by other members of the court.
Cersei learns from Tommen that the High Sparrow plans to have Margaery do a walk of atonement before Cersei's trial and conspires with the Small Council to have the Tyrell army march on the Sept of Baelor to secure Margaery and Loras' release. Their plan backfires when it is revealed that Margaery has joined the Faith of the Seven and has convinced Tommen to merge the Faith and the Crown.
Despite being stripped of her allies, Cersei opts to remain in King's Landing, having named Ser Gregor as her champion in her trial by combat. However, Tommen announces that trial by combat has been abolished and replaced by trial by the Seven. Cersei arranges for a cache of wildfire to be detonated beneath the Sept during Loras' trial, killing the High Sparrow, Margaery, Loras, and the rest of the Small Council.
As a direct result of Cersei's actions, Tommen commits suicide after witnessing the explosion. With House Baratheon officially extinct technically speaking, House Baratheon became extinct with the death of Stannis Baratheon and no one to oppose her in King's Landing, Cersei is crowned Queen of the Seven Kingdoms.
She remains cold and distant in regards to Tommen's suicide, viewing it as a betrayal of their family. With no children left to protect, Cersei's malice and vindictiveness has grown as she relentlessly seeks to expand her power and destroy her enemies. Cersei reaches out to the King of the Iron Islands, Euron Greyjoyto form an alliance, but rejects Euron's marriage proposal as she considers him untrustworthy.
She agrees to marry Euron after the war is won; however, she continues her affair with Jaime, no longer attempting to hide their relationship from their servants. Cersei imprisons Ellaria and Tyene in the dungeons, poisoning Tyene with the same poison used to kill Myrcella and keeping Ellaria alive to watch her daughter die and rot.
The show started with Cersei seemingly getting ready for her trial, while Ser Loras Tyrell had his famous flowing locks lopped off before being thrown in front of the High Sparrow.
He then decides to take his punishment like a man, saying: I lay with other men including the traitor Renly Baratheon. I perjured myself before the gods. But the soon-to-be dead warrior is ironically told he is to receive the 'mother's mercy' Panic: There is unrest as Cersei fails to turn up for her trial on time and some monks are sent to fetch her We've got to get out of here: Queen Margaery told the High Sparrow something was afoot 'I'm guilty of depravity dishonesty profligacy and arrogance.
I see that now. I humble before myself before The Seven and accept any judgement. He does however have to undergo the painful experience of having the church's religious symbol carved onto his forehead. The disgruntled priest then sends for Cersei, but she is no where to be seen, and neither is her beloved son King Tommen.

This is because she has had her mad scientist underling Qyburn use the Mad King's secret super stash of wildfire to blow up the holy centre of the capital while everyone, including her uncle Kevan Lannister, is inside. Brother where art thou: She told her stupefied sibling they had to get out of the Great Sept Monk-y business: But the Faith Militant guards refused to let her out despite her being a free woman Meanwhile: Lancel Lanister chased a young boy into an underground series of tunnels despite being told to go and fetch Cersei Stab in the dark: But he was knifed in the kidneys and left to die in pain by the pint-sized assassin The plot unfolds when her former lover Lancel is lured underneath the Sept, despite being told explicitly by the High Sparrow to fetch his cousin.
He is then stabbed and forced to watch in agony as candles slowly burned down to ignite the massive stockpile just before he could crawl over and stop the explosion. Somehow Queen Margaery realised something was afoot, but she was stopped from fleeing the building by the Faith Militant guards.
In her final moment she got to see the foolish High Sparrow get consumed by the green flames seconds before the hall itself was completely destroyed.

Cersei then took great delight in pouring wine over her former tormentor Septa Unella, then confessed to her that all of the allegations against her were true, including the fact she had her husband King Robert killed, and that she slept with her brother Jaime. You can do it Lancel: He crawled with all his might to discover what the fire was in the distance Who needs the Mad King? Cersei proved she was just as capable of mass murder as the Aerys II So close yet so far: Just as he arrived the candles set the chemicals alight And after telling her, 'even confessing feels good under the right circumstances,' she told her that she would die, but not before she is tortured at length by her zombie henchman Ser Gregor Clegane.
Clearly thinking her masterplan had worked out perfectly she wore a wide smile as she left the room to the terrified screams of her former torturer.
But her sensitive son Tommen was then shown looking out of the window at the carnage outside, before taking off his crown and leaping to his death. It was a sad callback to Bran Stark's seemingly fatal fall in the very first episode of the show. Somehow Cersei was then able to use her newfound authority to have herself crowned queen, for the second time no less, in front of a sober gathering of the remaining nobles in the city.
The holy man was to die a particularly dramatic martyr's death Thar she blows: The explosion made the death of King Aegon V Targaryen look like a minor blast However it seems her end could also be at hand, as her disgusted brother Jaime rode in to King's Landing just as her coronation was taking place.
It certainly seems the old prophecy that she would be slain at the hand of her own brother could soon come true when he discovers all that has happened, especially as he killed the Mad King Aerys II Targaryen just before he could carry out the same twisted plan she managed to carry out. Meanwhile there was much ado up North, but only after Jon was forced to banish the Lord Of Light priestess Melisandre, despite the fact she had raised him from the dead.
His trusted sidekick Ser Davos marched in and threw Princess Shireen's Baratheon charred toy stag on the table, then demanded justice after the Red Woman freely admitted she had Stannis burn his daughter alive at the stake.
The sadness of King Tommen: The thought of losing his beloved wife and spiritual teacher was too much Short but eventful reign: Tommon is unlikely to be fondly remembered by the historians of Westeros Wakey, wakey: Her transformation was complete when she left her zombified Mountain to brutalise her foe He told Jon: You've seen the Night King.
You know the war is yet to come. If you return to the North I'll have you hanged as a murderer. Bronn was just as sacked as his boss Never let a good crisis go to waste: Cersei decided the time was ripe to be crowned the ruling queen Time to complete the set:
