The Wicked Witch of Westeros

In just two months (more or less) we should have all seen a new episode of Game of Thrones, the start of the eighth and final season. The kind people at the Watchers on the Wall site have graciously allowed me to submit features for them, so I can work through my Game of Thrones related issues. Or something like that.

Just published on the site is a feature on Cersei Lannister, who is almost absolutely guaranteed to be regarded as a witch when the maesters write their histories of the War of the Five Kings and the Second Long Night. Sorry Cersei.

If interested, check it out here:

Cersei Lannister’s Journey to Season 8: A Lion, A Witch, and Her Wardrobe

This feature was inspired by a brilliant essay on Witches in A Song of Ice and Fire (and Shakespeare) by my blogging colleague ShakespeareofThrones. You can check that essay (and you should check it out) here:

In Triple Aspect: Witches of MacBeth and A Song of Ice and Fire

Thanks to everyone who continues to read my Game of Thrones writings on the Watchers on the Wall site. I’ve been very fortunate. But if Cersei reads the trash I’m writing about her, I might end up cursed. Or worse.


(Comments are always welcome. Super welcome! But if you want to talk spoilery Game of Thrones talk with me (also welcome) I’d invite you to visit my Safe Spoilers page on my backup blog. That way my non-book-reading friends won’t be shocked with foreknowledge.)
