“We shot a scene that never made it into Season 7, which was where I lose the baby,” said the actress. “And it was a really kind of traumatic, great moment for Cersei, and it never made it in. And I kind of loved doing that because it would’ve served her differently.”
Of course, as Season 8 played out, Cersei remained pregnant. While some viewers wondered if she was faking the pregnancy, she did say in her final moments that she wanted her baby to live. Anyway, Cersei having another child didn’t fit with the prophecy Maggy the Frog dropped on her when she was a young girl. You remember this one:
“You’ll never wed the prince, you’ll wed the king. … You’ll be queen… for a time. Then comes another, younger, more beautiful, to cast you down and take all you hold dear … The king will have 20 children, and you will have three. Gold will be their crowns. Gold, their shrouds.”
Three children, not four. So whether by miscarriage or Cersei’s death itself, which is what actually happened, Maggy’s prophecy did come to pass.
