Game of Thrones has had a lot of deaths – surprising and brutal. Still, there has always been a tragedy that the manufacturers decided not to show because it was too brutal. That's the death of King Tommen's beloved cat, Ser Pounce.
In a recent interview at Weekly entertainment, the showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss recently confirmed that the most adored cat would not come back this season as he was killed by Cersei Lannister. "Cersei hated the name" Ser Pounce "so much that she could not allow her to survive, so she proposed her most devilish execution," said Benioff.
The cat was last shown in season 6, just before Tommen Baratheon (Dean-Charles Chapman) commits suicide after the death of Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) at Seven in the month of Baelor. Since then, GOT fans have wondered what happened to his little cat.
"Ser Pounce's death was so horrible that we could not even broadcast it," said Benioff. Cersei killing his son's cat falls well in his characteristic. She certainly would not like Ser Pounce to roam around the Red Keep to remind her of her dead son.
But unlike television, Ser Pounce is alive in books. And as the fate of the cat is not indicated, we can still imagine that he lives happily. And this was confirmed by Dean-Charles Chapman, who had revealed in an interview to Huffington Post: "There are many employees in the kingdom to take care of him." I hope that & # 39; 39, he did not let himself be taken to the blast, to be a tragedy, I like to think that he would also pass from one life to the other and would maybe a girlfriend. "
Elsewhere, Benioff also confessed how difficult it was to work with the cat because you know how cats listen.
"This cat was not really fun to work with," says Benioff. Weiss adds, "Dogs usually do what you ask them if they are smart and well trained," says Weiss. "Cats have their own agenda."
And since cats have their own agendas, it means that one of the white walkers has recovered it and that later on it would come back to attack Cersei. Who knows? All we can do is wait until April 24th.
