GOT Season 4: King's Landing cast gives interviews about whats next (very mild spoilers)

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey)

Where we left off: The Queen Regent butted heads with her brother Tyrion, who doesn't show her or Joffrey any respect, and Margaery, who has won over the people of King's Landing through kindness. Cersei also got a glimpse of her maimed twin Jaime upon his return to the Red Keep.

What's next: Cersei will be a reluctant mother-in-law. "She's not a lover of Margaery," Headey tells "I think she'd be happier if the wedding didn't happen." Also, the twincestuous lovers won't have the happiest of reunions. "She's back with Jaime, and things have changed for her," she adds. "He's appeared thinking it was going to be as it was. She's kind of stood alone for a year, and lots has happened and is trying to decide what's going to work for her. She's quite selfish." That awkwardness, however, doesn't compare to the friction she'll have with her younger brother.

Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance)

Where we left off: The Lannister patriarch proved who was really in charge by pulling of the Red Wedding coup and also sending the king -- his nasty grandson Joffrey -- to his room for mouthing off one too many times.

What's next: Tywin will make a decision about part of the legacy the late Ned Stark (Sean Bean) left behind and will be called upon to offer wise counsel when crisis hits King's Landing once again. However, the master tactician will make one miscalculation, which could have major consequences for the Seven Kingdoms.
Jaime Lannister

Where we left off: En route to King's Landing, he got taken hostage. It's safe to say Jaime wasn't a fan of his captors' "hands off" approach to punishment: Their leader literally chopped off his sword hand. They also helped his traveling companion Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) escape from a bear.

What's next: Jaime must establish his authority among the Kingsguard, which means trying to make up for his lost hand somehow. (He will turn to an unlikely source for help.) Also, he will put his trust in two people he's come to respect, but the result of one of those interactions will hit shockingly close to home.

Tyrion Lannister

Where we left off: The Imp became the Master of Coin and wed Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner).
What's next: His marriage continues to cause trust issues with his woman Shae (Sibel Kekilli), who is reluctant to live by the rules in King's Landing. "She thought she had a strong foundation but it's not, it's shaking like an earthquake," Kekilli says. "She loves Sansa, she loves Tyrion, and now they're a married couple even if they don't love each other. It's really hard for her to decide, 'Should I trust both of them or not?'" Meanwhile, his relationship with his siblings will leave much to be desired in the wake of kingdom-changing events.

Loras Tyrell (Finn Jones)

Where we left off: Loras' grandmother Olenna (Diana Rigg) finagled him an engagement to Cersei.

What's next: "He's a bachelor in distress," Jones says, blaming Jaime, Cersei's brother-lover, for some of the headaches. "There's going to be a bit of bro friction. There's definitely a bit of in-house politics going on there. Loras isn't really afraid to say what he thinks. He's in a good position politically. He knows no one can fuck up his shit, and Jaime's lost a hand now. Let's not forget about that. And Loras is a great fighter. So it's a bit like, 'Hey, Jaime? Fuck you. I'm marrying your sister.' So, he's got the upper hand, as goes the saying." (lmao i cant)

Brienne of Tarth

Where we left off: Despite the hand-chopping and bear incidents, Brienne safely delivered Jaime back to his family in King's Landing.

What's next: "Brienne continues to be put in situations that she's not used to navigating,"Christie says. "I can guarantee you that this season she is truly tested in a variety of ways, and sometimes with comic consequences. We see that raw underbelly exposed and attacked yet again." As for Brienne's possible blossoming feelings for Jaime? "The journey continues to evolve," she teases.

Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal)

What's next: The smoldering newcomer is a prince from Dorne who has a bone to pick with someone (or ones!) in King's Landing.

"He shows up and doesn't waste any time in letting everyone know why he's there," Pascal says. "He is a lover and a fighter. He's a man who lives his life without compromising anything he feels. He does what he wants, when he wants. It's a very dangerous attitude to have in King's Landing, and he doesn't care." Yep, that sounds like the perfect wedding guest!
