    There will never be another Cersei Lannister.

    Warning, spoilers follow!

    In the penultimate episode of the series, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) destroyed King's Landing atop her dragon--and a lot of people died! But not all of them died at the hands and fire of Dany and Drogon. Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) died in each other's arms, but first Jaime took out Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbk).

    After the episode aired, the actors behind some of these fan-favorite and fan-hated characters took to social media to bid farewell.

    "There she goes. It's been fun, and bonkers. I loved her. I am grateful for the opportunity. Massively thankful for your encouraging and supportive love along the way. And now her watch is ended (I know she'd never make it; Night's Watch wouldn't have her...but still...)," Headey posted along with several heart emojis.

    She also shared some behind-the-scenes videos and photos along with tributes from Asbk and Coster-Waldau.

    The final episode of "Game of Thrones" airs Sunday, May 19 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
