Perhaps. But in fairness to Cersei, her mother did literally die when Tyrion was born. As despicable as it is to blame a baby, you could at least understand how a small child could blame the baby brother for taking her mother away, and that it could last into adulthood. Cat was already an adult when Jon was born. You’d think she’d be a bit more enlightened than a small child.

Jon chose of his own accord to join the Night's Watch, and of course at the time only Ned knew the truth. Robert never hinted at thinking Jon a threat. Jon is impressed by his uncle Ben, the First Ranger, and the Watch is a place he can go and be treated only according to his talents.

Lyanna Mormont. I wanted her to at least survive, and maybe wind up on the Iron Throne.

Shireen. I just didn't expect what they showed. I thought someone would save her! And the begging and screaming, I had to turn it off. I don't really develop attachments to characters so it might make me a little sad when one I like dies but that scene was just too much for me as a mama bear.
