You think they are going to give two kills to Arya? She already got hers.

Why not? Most people don't expect that to happen because she killed the Night King.

I don’t really think they will give her another big kill, but whoever kills Cersi I just cannot wait to see it.

I think it's going to be Jaime. Runner up Tyrion. I don't think they'll have Arya be the slayer of both big baddies.

I'd like it to be Tyrion. Cersei has hated Tyrion his entire life and tried to kill him multiple times. I'd love to see him take her down in spectacular fashion.

That's funny how they say Jaime loves Brienne but suddenly goes back to Cersei. Misdirection?

Please tell me what happened in the episode that made Jaime go back to Cersei? I didn't quite get it. He heard that she did something... what?

My vote is Jaime kills Cersei. Tyrion on the Iron Throne at the end of it all.

I could live with that, since I think Tyrion would be a decent King. But I'm not sure any scenario that ends with a Lannister on the Iron Throne would sit well with many GOT fans.

I'm thinking one of the Starks, since that's where we first started the journey.

He's told that Euron ambushed the fleet, captured Missandei, and Cersei ultimately had her executed. The assumption is Dany will unleash hell on King's Landing as a result, so the assumption is Jamie is going to try to stop it or protect Cersei.

BUT, the last thing he tells Brienne is that he's not a good man, but that he's hateful (like his sister). I don't think that means he's going to protect her, or at least it leaves it open to interpretation.

Missandei is executed by Cersei after Jamie leaves. So he didn't hear her execution.

OK, I'll play......

The Hound kills the Mountain in Cleganebowl. Arya takes his face, then dispatches Cersei. Makes sense since the Mountain is one of the few who can approach Cersei.

From this article on IGN:
In a ... telephone interview with IGN, "The Last of the Starks" director David Nutter explained why the episode didn't show Sansa and Arya's reaction.

"I think that David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] know very well that you don’t need to repeat what’s been said once, you want the audience to take it themselves and let the audience have an interpretation and then find out if your interpretation is correct," Nutter said. "So that’s, I think, a better way to tell a story where you’re not force-feeding the audience information they already know."

Nutter added that the audience knows that "[Arya and Sansa's] reaction will be less than stellar, but it’s more interesting not to say it and it will obviously then help provide more suspense in the story being told."
Based on what many of my coworkers and I have said they fully do not understand their audience. Several called the failure to show their response the biggest fail of the episode.

I’m very eager to see under the Mountain’s mask. You know he’s gotta look like Jason fucking Voorhees under there!

Has anyone actually considered that Cersei may win?

How crazy would that be??

I'd be OK with it for no other reason than it goes against what we've come to expect from the show runners since they ran out of books for inspiration and pretty much went predictable, safe, and cliche', with a strong leaning into fan service.
