Lena Headey (AKA Cersei Lannister) Praised Arya's Bravery on Game of Thrones and Fans Think It's a Bad Idea

Cersei Lannister didn't make an appearance in the Battle of Winterfell during last night's episode of Game of Thrones, but Lena Headey, who plays her on screen, was sure following along.

The actress reacted to the biggest moment of the episode—Arya Stark killing the Night King—with a celebratory photo on Instagram. She posted a still from Season 8, Episode 3 showing the pint-sized warrior, played by Maisie Williams, mid-combat against the Army of the Dead.

"That’s my girl," Headey captioned the photo, adding the hasthag #Aryastarkaintfuckingabout.

While most of us GoT fans can agree that Arya was nothing short of badass in that fateful battle, some were quick to point out that Headey shouldn't be too quick to celebrate, considering her character could become Arya's next victim. People were basically like:

Responses like "you're next" and "be careful" appeared in Headey's comments.

Viewers are nearly convinced Arya will be the one to kill Cersei not only because she's killed the Night King and destroyed his army, but also because Melisandre implied that it's her destiny. In last night's episode, the Red Woman repeated a prophecy she previously told Arya in Season 3, that she'll "shut" brown eyes, green eyes, and blue eyes, referencing her past and future victims.

Stark has already killed people with brown eyes and the Night King counts as her blue-eyed kill; will Cersei, who has Lannister-green eyes, be next?

A face-off with Cersei and her armies (whether with or without elephants) is imminent, if the trailer for next week's episode is any proof. Only time will tell if Arya and Cersei will have any tense moments together. If they do, Cersei better watch her back.

Game of Thrones returns next Sunday on HBO at 9 P.M. ET.
