We'll Find Out Who Cersei Really Is
Right after the season six finale, D.B. Weiss revealed a bit of the writers' plans for Cersei's storyline to Deadline: "That's what so much of next season is going to be about; finding out what Cersei's mind-set is. Who is she? 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. Who is she without her children? The answer is something you'll find out next season."
