‘Game of Thrones’ Stars React to the Explosive Season 6 Finale

     June 27, 2016

Warning: Game of Thrones Season 6 finale spoilers below!

Game of Thrones concluded its sixth season with a finale that didn’t pull any punches, including the release of Wildfire that blew up the Sept and decimated a large portion of King’s Landing. Cersei’s (Lena Heady) plan to unleash the Wildfire led to the deaths of Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) and many, many others. But EW caught up with Dormer about her big finish, which surprised fans:

“It’s truly it’s own unique moment to tie up what’s been a unique storyline about what’s happened in King’s Landing over the course of season 6. I thought it was an inspired choice. And it’s really interesting that I am given a moment of some vindication at the very end, which was the perfect way for Margaery to leave the show. She’s given a platform to say that she was right, as she always is. But because the power was taken from her, she couldn’t do anything about it.”

The outlet also caught up with Emilia Clarke who made some Season 7 predictions:

“If we talk about this: basically, I’ve got ships, I’ve got manpower, I’ve got dragons that breath fire, and I apparently cannot be killed. I don’t even have an attractive man who wants to take his shirt off anywhere near me now, so there are no distractions … The only thing missing is Jorah. He’s gotta come back. I said I can’t rule the Seven Kingdoms without him … But as with Game of Thrones, you know when your character is looking good, that’s when you know you’re not safe. Because [the writers are] all, ‘Oh, do you like her? We’ll kill her!’”

Doubtful, although with this show, you never know! We need more from House Mormont for sure. EW continued its coverage of cast reactions by revealing Maisie Williams‘ new ranking of Arya’s hit list (most of whom are dead, but watch out Cersie, she is coming for you!) And speaking of Cersei, Lena Headey spoke to the outlet about how Cersei never wanted the throne, she just wanted security. As for Cersei’s reign, will it be long?

“No. Surely not! Not a chance in hell. It’s a moment of punctuation in the madness.”

She also said she’s looking forward to have her character reunite with Tyrion, though says she expects either he or Arya will end her. We’ll find out in 47 weeks!
