WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD FOR EPISODE 4 OF SEASON 8 OF "GAME OF THRONES"
The Night King has nothing on Cersei Lannister.
For all the terror the now-dead leader of the White Walkers brought to Winterfell in last week's epic battle, the wrath of Cersei in Sunday night's installment was much more impactful.
And not just because viewers could actually see this week's broad daylight bloodshed scenes, unlike last week's night-time, snowstorm-tainted fiasco that fans complained was too dark to process what was going on.
From long-awaited hookups to heartbreaking deaths, here are the most shocking moments from Season 8, Episode 4 of "Game of Thrones."
Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) have had a mutual admiration for each other for a while, but when it comes to lust, it seemed like Brienne was the only one with feelings there. Until now.
After Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) all but got Brienne to admit she's never had a romantic partner while playing a drinking game, the newly-knighted Brienne fled the room, with Jaime close behind her.
Jaime followed her back to her room where they awkwardly took each other's clothes off, and the rest is history.
Despite her history of freeing slaves, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) has long been depicted as power-hungry. But it still came as a shock when the Mother of Dragons asked her beloved Jon Snow (Kit Harington) to lie to about who his parents are.
Hiding the truth about news that reveals he's the true heir to the Iron Throne benefits only her, since she's so desperate to take the throne and doesn't want any competition.
Thankfully Jon comes to his senses and fills in Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner). Sansa, in turn, tells Tyrion, who passes the revelation on to Varys (Conleth Hill), hopefully ensuring that even if some of these characters don't make it, at least someone will be around with knowledge of who the real heir is.
Unlike last week's Battle of Winterfell episode, this one was quite unpredictable. Daenerys and her allies hadn't even reached King's Landing yet, where they were sailing to deal with the evil Cersei, when forces headed by Cersei's new lover Euron Greyjoy shot Rhaegal out of the sky with arrows.
The dragon struggled for a bit before eventually falling into the sea and failing to resurface.
And Euron's team wasn't through yet. They destroyed ships, sending Daenerys' crew swimming to shore, and took the dragon queen's confidante Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) as prisoner.
Not long after the pair got together, Jaime leaves Brienne sleeping in her room at Winterfell and sneaks out to get his horse ready for the ride to King's Landing. After he found out his sister/ex-lover/baby mama Cersei had ordered the death of a dragon and captured Missandei, he knew her enemies will seek revenge, and many more lives will be lost — possibly even Cersei's.
Brienne wakes up and finds Jaime outside before he leaves. She begs him not to go, telling him he's a good person, unlike his sister. Despite redeeming himself this season from past offenses, Jaime tells Brienne he's not a good person and admits that he pushed Bran out a window years back and is guilty of much more, all because of his love for his sister.
He then rides away leaving behind a tearful Brienne. Is he leaving to fight for Cersei and protect her? Or is he planning to kill her for all the horrible things he's done on her behalf? Only time will tell.
Before the Battle of Winterfell, Missandei and her love Grey Worm planned their future together once the wars were over. Many believed that meant that at least one of them would die in that battle. They didn't, but Missandei lost her life this week.
After being taken prisoner by Euron on behalf of Cersei, the queen puts Missandei out on display and threatens that she'll kill her unless Daenerys surrenders. Of course, Dany doesn't, and Tyrion tries to talk his sister Cersei out of a war.
Cersei doesn't want to hear it, and orders that The Mountain behead Missandei. Grey Worm and Daenerys look on in horror and will no doubt show no mercy to Cersei moving forward.
