Leaked Game of Thrones Script Contains Major Spoiler About Cersei Lannister

Saying we have a lot of questions going into the final season of Game of Thrones would be an understatement. What will Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow do when they find out of his true parentage? When will Cleganebowl go down? And is Cersei Lannister actually pregnant?

In the Season 7 episode "Eastwatch," Cersei tells her brother Jaime Lannister that she's pregnant with his child—news that forces their brother Tyrion Lannister to strike up a deal with her for the unborn child. However, fans of the HBO series were quick to call her bluff, as she's not exactly the most honest person in Westeros. In fact, it would be very much like her to lie about something this big to manipulate the people around her.

Well, it appears she was actually telling the truth.

According to Metro, a script available at the Writers Guild of America West from that Season 7 episode actually confirms Cersei's pregnancy. In the script, when she tells Jaime the news, the stage notes read, "She nods, it’s true … Her happiness is contagious. They get another chance at family. This time with no one standing in their way."

If that isn't enough to convince you, a conversation later on with Tyrion also adds, "Tyrion sees what he sees and knows what it means. He can hardly believe it, but knows it to be true."

This confirmation only makes things more interesting for what's in store for Season 8. Game of Thrones will return for its final season in April 2019.

Pottery Barn Is Launching a Friends-Inspired Furniture Line That Includes Rachel’s Iconic Apothecary Table

To celebrate this fall’s 25th anniversary of the premiere of Friends in 1994, Pottery Barn is releasing a line of furniture inspired by the beloved NBC sitcom, Deadline reports.

The collection will feature accessories, furniture, and tabletop items, including Central Perk mugs. One highlight is a replica of the apothecary table that made a name for apothecary tables everywhere with its spotlight-stealing performance in the season 6 episode “The One with the Apothecary Table.” In it, Rachel purchases an apothecary table from Pottery Barn and, when she finds out Phoebe hates Pottery Barn, tells her the table is an antique from the “days of yore.” It gets more complicated (and hilarious) from there.

According to BuzzFeed, the episode was actually part of a product placement deal with Pottery Barn, and Entertainment Weekly even ranked it first on their “Best Product Placement” list for Friends.

You can shop the collection beginning on July 30, with prices starting at $12.50. If you’re a diehard Friends fanatic looking to celebrate its 25th anniversary in a way that Rachel Green would be proud of, you can also enter Pottery Barn’s sweepstakes for a chance to win a free trip for two to Los Angeles, complete with a $1000 shopping spree to Pottery Barn and a Warner Bros. Studio Deluxe Tour which includes, of course, a visit to the Central Perk set.

And, if you haven’t seen “The One with the Apothecary Table,” you can watch it on Netflix before Friends leaves for WarnerMedia’s new streaming service HBO Max in 2020.
