Following Tommen Baratheon's untimely death in the final episode of "Game of Thrones" Season 6, former queen regent Cersei Lannister assumed the Iron Throne as the new ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, but with great power comes responsibility and a lot of enemies. Will Cersei be able to hold on to that power for as long as she wants?

Cersei has lost all of her children, and she is partly to blame for Tommen's suicide. Now that she's got nothing left to lose, is her only goal is to become the ruthless ruler of Westeros, much like the Mad King?

"While Cersei has certainly done a lot of horrible things in her life and she could be a very cruel person, the one thing that was redemptive about her was that she genuinely loved her children. Now they're all gone, and I think that is very interesting for us," creator David Weiss told Deadline. "Who is she without her children? The answer is something you'll find out next season. That's so much of what is to come that I'll just give it away if I start delving into it now."

Cersei's decision to blow up the Great Sept of Baelor, consequently killing the High Sparrow as well as Margaery and Loras Tyrell, did not bode well with Jaime. It was evident in Jaime's reaction during Cersei's crowning that he was not exactly pleased with the turn of events.

In an interview, actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau revealed that it may be about time Jaime leaves Cersei.

"The woman you love has turned into this seemingly mad woman. If you were a couples counselor you would tell him to maybe reconsider this relationship," Coster-Waldau said, as quoted by The Independent.

He added, "On a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being 'this is the moment when you have to leave,' I think we are at 99.9. But it's 'Game of Thrones,' so you never know."

Jaime's disposition in the season wrapper of "Game of Thrones" Season 6 resembles a popular theory relating to the prophecy about Cersei in the books. The prophecy, as told in the books holds after his children's deaths, Cersei will die at the hands of the "valonqar" who will "choke the life" from her. "Valonqar" is High Valyrian for "little borther," which means either of her siblings will strangle her to death. Given Jaime's knowledge about what Cersei has done, he has the best reason to kill her.
