    This One Moment In "Game Of Thrones" Season 8, Episode 1 Had Everyone Laughing At Cersei

    Cersei is used to getting what she wants. Warning: contains minor spoilers.

    This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 1. You've been warned!

    HBO

    The Season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones had to cover a lot of ground. So the action in King's Landing didn't get a lot of screentime — but we did learn that Euron has successfully fetched the Golden Company from Essos for Cersei.

    HBO

    Euron arrives with Harry Strickland, the head of the Golden Company, and informs Cersei they have 20,000 men, 2,000 horses...and unfortunately no elephants.

    Cersei is NOT impressed with this news. She did specifically mention to Jaime in the Season 7 finale that the Golden Company had elephants, so it must have been an important part of her battle plan. Either that, or she just really wanted to meet an elephant?

    Cersei even brings up the lack of elephants AGAIN after she has sex with Euron. Her obsession with the elephants was a weirdly hilarious moment, so naturally people started making a lot of jokes...

    Cersei: and elephants? I was told the Golden Company has elephants Harry Strickland: we do, but HBO dedicated this season’s special effects budget to direwolves and dragons, so I’m just going to say elephants aren’t well-suited to sea voyages
