Game of Thrones: Cersei Lannister is the most relatable character in Season 8, Episode 1


Cersei Lannister relatable? She is! Well, at least in the first episode of Season 8 of Game of Thrones.

Spoiler alert! Spoilers for Season 8, Episode 1 of Game of Thrones are ahead. If you have yet to watch the big Season 8 premiere, first — what are you waiting for?! Second — look away now.

Queen Cersei was promised elephants and received zero. Zip. Nada. Why make such a promise and not deliver? If elephants aren’t suited for travel, don’t say you’ll bring some in the first place. We are just as disappointed as Cersei. Is the HBO budget to blame? After watching that beautiful scene with Daenerys and Jon Snow riding the dragons, I definitely believe so. But, why does Cersei even believe the elephants will help her out at all against dragons. Three dragons, exactly.

Sure, elephants are massive creatures and are tough to take down, especially those trained for war. But one dragon alone can easily take on an army of elephants.

So how is she relatable here? Not her beauty, unfortunately. Or her life choices, fortunately, But it’s the disappointment of not getting what she wanted. Not to mention, her reaction is hilarious. We all know Cersei holds back from showing any emotion publicly. So her expressing how disappointed she was (more than once) was really something.

The tweet below pretty much represents how we would have all felt at that moment. We truly have all been there, one way or another. When we requested no onions on our plate and the server forgets, “I was told there’d be no onions.” We felt that.

Can you blame Cersei for feeling this way? She may be evil (or misunderstood, to some), but we all have dreams. And Cersei’s dream was to have elephants.
