Why Didn't Cersei Use the Wildfire on Game of Thrones?

Daenerys, of course, has now gone full "Mad Queen", and we catch a glimpse of her in the Episode 6 trailer looking out over her newly acquired kingdom - the one she basically burned to the ground in a fit of rage, which many of us saw coming, as she flew Drogon back and forth literally scorching the earth.

But after she discussed the scene at length with Coster-Waldau, Headey decided "it seemed like the flawless end for her".

"I told Nikolaj, 'I've never seen you so sweet and sentimental.' And he's all, 'What's happening to me?' We kept cuddling going 'I love you.' It was weird", Headey said. The sight of the wildfire barrels exploding without any impact pretty much sealed the deal that Cersei had lost. and as she once put it, "When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die". "They came into the world together and now they leave together".

However, after Daenerys depletes the Golden Company soldiers with dragon fire, and the bells ring out for surrender, the mother of dragons seems to crack and she destroys nearly the entirety of the capital.

In fact, Headey said she found closure in Cersei and Jaime's moment together before the Red Keep tumbles. "If Cersei hadn't betrayed her, if she hadn't killed Missandei... then we might not have seen this side of Daenerys Targaryen".

Kudlow also said that Trump and China's President, Xi Jingping, may meet in late June at the G20 worldwide conference in Japan.

There is something thick and white covering the floor and raining into the room - which at the time was assumed to be snow, a symbol that winter had finally come to King's Landing. "There's a sense of loss that nothing like this will ever happen again. There was a great sense of grief and an enormous amount of gratitude going on".

She said: 'I'm heavily unemployed now'.

While the penultimate Game of Thrones outing seems to have divided people, though, it's worth noting that it wasn't necessarily a huge surprise. Unfortunately, I think the general populace is the least of anyone's concerns, what with a potentially Mad Queen having a dragon at her disposal and one hell of a grudge.

HBO has yet to react to the fans' observation: after the cup gaffe, the network sarcastically responded: "The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake". I thought, "Incest, dragons, I'm in"!'
