2. The End Of The Lannisters

Cersei

Talking of King’s Landing, it’s time to bring the story of the remaining Lannisters (not including Tyrion) to an end. At this point, the best way to do that might just be by killing the lot of them!

It felt like the show struggled to do anything interesting with both Cersei and┬áJaime last year, and the former’s walk of shame ended up being the only real talking point. While Jaime could still find a role somewhere in the series, Cersei’s desperate bid to hold on to her family’s power is beginning to feel stale, so wrapping that story up with an unexpected butchering – think Red Wedding 2.0 – would leave viewers gobsmacked and shakes up the dynamic in King’s Landing enough to lead to some unexpected new places.
