He also says that Jaime is pretty straightforward when it comes to "walking the walk".
Since the moment that Ned Stark discovered the crown's enormous debt problem, shortly before his demise in season one, it has loomed over the Lannisters, informing every alliance they've made and every back they've stabbed.
So far, there were almost no chances for anyone to bring down the left pillars of the Lannister family, Cersei and Jaime. That's why this episode was a breath of fresh snowflake-filled air - the senselessness of the previous episodes stopped mattering as a gripping tale of politics and existentialism, which defines this show, took centrestage once again.
If Jaime is killed in the North, it would create an opportunity for Arya to take his face and head toward King's Landing, imitating Jaime in the same way that she enacts her revenge on the Freys at the beginning of season seven. But we also don't see resolution to their discussion on screen, which means that the two presumably reach an agreement in private that suits each of their needs - or at least that's what Cersei leads Tyrion to believe. "He's thinking, 'You commit to something, and you've just seen this thing is real, what the hell...?' She takes it to a place that he can't follow her to". She was playing Tyrion more or less all along. This is what we will discover in Game of Thrones' season 8, but if it is already certain that Jon and Dany will not easily forgive this betrayal. The Mad King was obsessed with it. He loved to watch people burn, the way their skin blackened and blistered and melted off their bones. In early seasons, he was painted as the incestuous King Slayer, but over the years he has become a noble man stuck in a terrible relationship. There are a few implications of Jaime leaving Cersei.
"My hope is that I'd like him to meet Bran and I'd like him to apologize to Bran Stark because that wasn't a nice thing he did in Episode 1 [shoving him out the tower window]..." Not only that, but we learned his name: Aegon Targeryan. (NZ law says yes.) And will we ever discover the point of the Dorne subplot? Well, that's a little more awkward now than it would've been otherwise. Jaime is disappointed and disgusted with her. And on top of that, Cersei is also fighting against a prophecy that foresees impending, inescapable doom.
Regarding Cersei Lannister (whose looks include a lot of spikes this season), Clapton described her style as "extravagant".
Waldau's subsequent horror and rage crawling onto his face is a testament to his incredible ability.
