Cerseis Revenge On Game Of Thrones Was Originally Going To Be Much Darker

Ser Gregor Clegane, aka The Mountain, is a brutal beast.

Back in the day, during Robert’s Rebellion, he viciously killed Rhaegar Targaryen and Ellia Martell’s two children, Rhaenys and Aegon.He killed baby Aegon by bashing his head against the wall, and then, sickeningly, while still covered in the gore from her children proceeded to rape Elia, after which he killed her. As I said, Ser Gregor Clegane is a brutal beast.

That brings me nicely on tho this scene. Perhaps nicely was the wrong choice of adjective, as this broke my heart.

So, now that we’ve established thatSer Gregor Clegane is capable of evil things, let’s cast our minds back to the last episode of season six. Cersei, the coldest witch Queen of them all, was out for revenge on Septa Unella, the woman who ‘shamed’ her in that iconic scene back in season five.

Let’s remind ourselves of how that one finished up.

For her revenge Cersei chose to leaveSepta Unella alone in a room withSer Gregor Clegane, chanting”Shame, shame, shame,” as she closes the door behind her. Unella screamed and we all collectively put our hands overour eyes. We never got to see what happened, but our imaginations filled the gap in for us and, with Unella pinned down and unable to move,it alluded to a brutal rape by the tallest man in Westeros.Even by showing us nothing, it was a grimacing scene. It could, however, according toLena Headey who plays Cersei, have been so much worse. She told Entertainment Weekly:

“Its so filthy. Its so great. Everybodys witnessed what happened with the two of them. I dont think people will be able to help going, Yes! But its so depraved, its brilliant. The scene was meant to be worse, but they couldnt do it. This is like the tame version. Its pretty bad still though. Id take being exploded in the Sept over that any day.”

I’m kind of glad we missed out on that one.
