Much like everyone else, we assumed this character was an extra employed for this scene only. But nope—turns out this is Bernadette, and she's been working for Cersei since way back in Season One.

Reddit (opens in new tab) points out that Bern (new nickname, deal with it) can be seen in multiple episodes of Game of Thrones—and is usually dressed to match Cersei. So either she is fully obsessed, or Cersei's making her maids dress exactly like her. Either way, here for it.

To quote Reddit user Knightboat17, "One time I saw Cersei Lannister wearing a black skin tight suit and had a pixie cut. So I bought a black skin tight suit and got a pixie cut."

Watch the trailer for Sunday's episode below:
