31 Reasons You Love to Hate Cersei Lannister, Game of Thrones' Queen of Mean
Damn: Game of Thrones season six ended with Cersei blowing up her enemies, daughter-in-law, and a great deal of King's Landing's citizens and getting the Iron Throne. It's a frightening sight to see her sitting up there, all that power actually hers, and yet the new Mad Queen kind of excites us. Cersei is so deliciously watchable, which, despite her streak of ugliness, makes us want to keep seeing what she'll do next. Thanks to Lena Headey's Emmy-nominated performance, Cersei has even had some moments that elicit sympathy and pity — you know, right before she does something totally awful. But for all those moments where she's just fun to watch, we give Cersei a round of applause — and this tribute to her wicked, wicked ways.
