The season 5 finale of ‘Game of Thrones’ is upon us, and it’s a big one for Cersei. The episode features Cersei’s highly-anticipated Walk of Atonement, and we have some spoilers on the epic and jaw-dropping scene.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Fans have seen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) fall from grace over the course of season five. In the June 14 finale of Game of Thrones, Cersei takes her Walk of Atonement (also known as Cersei’s Walk of Shame) fully nude as a form of punishment for the crimes she’s been accused of. The scene is going to be controversial for sure, and Eugene Simon, who plays Lancel Lannister, is spilling spoiler-y secrets about the “cataclysmic” scene.
In case you don’t know what Cersei’s nude walk entails, the former Queen will be shaved from head to toe and forced to walk completely naked from the Great Sept of Baelor to the Red Keep. The guy who plays Lancel Lannister, who had a major role in bringing down Cersei, is revealing spoilers about Cersei’s walk.
“It’s one of those scenes that’s so extraordinarily massive when it’s actually put on the screen,” Eugene told Huffington Post. “I saw enough to know the way Cersei falls is cataclysmic. A lot of very big adjectives have to be used to describe a scene that big.”
This “big” scene is undoubtedly going to cause uproar among fans. After Sansa was brutally raped earlier in the season and Shireen was horrifically sacrificed, fans are on edge about the treatment of female characters on the show. However, there is some karma coming back on Cersei for her past misdeeds, and Eugene says her walk it truly “powerful.”
“We felt the profundity of the moment because it’s the first time Cersei ever had something really explode back in her face,” he continued. “It’s pretty powerful stuff.” We are so not ready.
