Is there any moments that hinted that Cersei was a coward prior to 8x05?

Like, I’m still trying to come to terms that she....Just cried like an idiot during the battle of kingslanding? She didn’t cry during the battle of Blackwater - when she actually had more to lose..So what was different now? 

 

Shes always been portrayed as evil, but this coward thing seemed like it came out of the blue. Yes you could say she broke down during the walk of shame, but I feel most people would react the same.

She didn't cry "througout the battle". She cried after being re-united with Jamie and when being in a situation of clear death. She lost all. The reunion with Jamie brings out her emotions.

Go back and watch it. She started crying when Qyburn convinced her to retreat

Yes, that wa at the very end of the battle, shortly before it ended.

That is the opposite of "though the battle". My goodness.

IIRC, she cried when Qyburn informed her that Unsullied had breached Red Keep. Either way, I didn't think it was cowardly, just the reaction to total defeat. If I were her and saw GC, Iron Fleet, Last Lannister army incinerated, I'd crumble as well.

Moreover, she had wine during blackwater, so that helped. As she was pregnant during S8, she refused to drink.

Indeed. That is very different from "throughout the battle". Participants in this forum should keep more to the truth.

Agreed.
