After betraying the North during their darkest hour, not sending the Lannister Army to battle the Night King, Queen Cersei Lannister sets up the North to be loyal to the Dragon Queen.  But no one should think Cersei is going to be easily removed from the Iron Throne.

Certainly, no one has forgotten their enmities toward Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). The current Queen of King’s Landing has been missing in action for two full episodes now, completely on the sidelines as the Northern alliance battled back the dead — all going according to plan, in other words, albeit without the added benefit of Jon Snow and Daenery’s Emilia Clarke) deaths. Even with her two royal opponents still in the rumble, Cersei’s plans to keep the throne have been in full-boil brew from the relative comfort of the Red Keep. It’s worth noting that Cersei likely has a very specific plot in mind for Daenerys, based on an exchange from the final season premiere, when Qyburn (Anton Lesser) came to Bronn (Jerome Flynn) with an assignment:

Her Hand Qyburn: “She has other plans for the Targaryen girl.”
