Well, you knew it would happen eventually: a Game of Thrones star has let slip a major SPOILER for the show’s eighth and final season. This one comes from Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister). Turn back now if you don’t want the final episodes ruined for you.
While promoting her new movie Fighting With My Family alongside the cast and director Stephen Merchant, The Wrap asked Headey about season 8. And then came the bomb. “I can’t tell you anything apart from I descend some stairs and ascend some stairs.”
That’s right, folks: in season 8, not only will Cersei Lannister go down some stairs, but she will also go up some stairs. I don’t know about you, but I’m reeling.
What could this mean? We know Littlefinger once told Varys that “chaos is a ladder,” but with Baelish now dead, could Cersei go to Braavos in season 8, train to become a Faceless Man, then return to Westeros wearing his face, freaking out the Starks and changing stairs for a ladder? The possibilities are endless, and I obviously need to seek help immediately.
More seriously, Headey also “revealed” that Cersei will still have short hair in season 8. “I still have the turnip. Yeah, my favorite wig ever,” she said, incredibly sarcastically.
This actually isn’t the first time Headey has dropped the staircase bombshell. Apparently she was walking up and down stairs on her last day on set:
I thought I could go this whole time without being spoiled, but that was probably hoping for too much. I guess I’ll still watch when Game of Thrones returns on April 14.
