Lena Headey Was Stunning During Her Nude Sex Scene In Last Night’s Game Of Thrones

Game of Thrones’s seventh season has finally kicked it up to high gear—and much of that is owed to one specific performance. After a premiere filled with the sort of table-setting that generally expected in Thrones season openers and a somewhat weak second episode loaded with exposition, (but an awesome sex scene) this week’s installment delivered jolts in each of its storylines, but none as powerful as the story of Cersei.

As embodied by Lena Headey, the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms has grown ever more obsessed with the wrongs done to her in the past now that she’s back in power. Her understanding of the world has long been that the wrongs done her (particularly, the deaths of her children) were ugly, necessary steps towards her ultimate installment upon the throne; she’s quickly learning that it’s much better to use the power of the throne for revenge. And she’s no longer worried about people knowing she f*cks her brother.
