I replayed her last scene in Blackwater at least 4 times. I loved the right profile shot of her sitting on the throne, hand clutching her little boy's shoulder. Her smile and the lines on her face lent such sympathy to a character I normally love to hate. It was a beautiful portrayal of a mother reassuring her son in what she thought would be the final moments of their lives. I found myself saying a little prayer for her to prevail. Superb. I cannot wait for tonight!

/agree.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':agree:' /> I hate Cersei too but Lena Headey played the part of worried mother sitting on the throne outstandingly!!!
And when Tywin marched through the door that took my breath away!

I previously thought Lena Headey was a pretty much a hack actress just capable of giving us a cartoon Cersei with 1 facial expression.

I was wrong.

To really shine all she needed was good writing. And here she got, well, the best - GRRM.
