Warning: This article contains major spoilers for the season finale of Game of Thrones.
The sixth season finale of Game of Thrones ended with an unexpected new ruler of the Seven Kingdoms: Cersei Lannister. After burning the High Sparrow, the Tyrells, and likely hundreds more people with wildfire, her beloved son Tommen takes his own life, leaving nobody around with a claim to the Iron Throne but the Lannister matriarch herself.
But the actress who plays Cersei predicts it all will be short-lived. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lena Headey said there's "not a chance in hell" that Cersei will maintain her position of power for very long. "It's a moment of punctuation in the madness."
Naturally, she's thought about who might be the one to remove her from power, and that might just be Daenerys Targaryen, who's traveling to Westeros with Cersei's brother, Tyrion, and an entire fleet. "I got goosebumps reading, 'The ships are coming,'" she said. "They keep teasing us every season and I don't know what's going to happen because nobody tells you anything. I have to assume there's going to be one helluva battle."
If Headey had her choice, there would only be two people who could finally kill her. "I've always said that when [Cersei's death] happens, as long as it's kinda glorious and gory and it's by the right person…" she said. "I think it has to be Arya [Stark] or Tyrion." But it's Game of Thrones, so one thing is clear: nobody will see it coming.
