Game Of Thrones Cat Ser Pounce Has Been Brutally Killed Off

13 February 2019

But once season six ended with Tommen's death, following the loss of his beloved Margery, Cersei crowned herself queen - and Ser Pounce wasn't seen again. She would definitely not like Ser Pounce prowling around the Red Keep, to remind her of her dead son. Was he now one of those street cats like Arya tried to catch in Season 1? Even so, showrunner David Benioff has just revealed an offscreen death that's truly shocking.

"Cersei hated the name "Ser Pounce" so much she could not allow him to survive", he told Entertainment Weekly on Monday. "So she came up with her most diabolical [execution]".

But apparently not. Cause of death for Ser Pounce?

The department insisted on conditions in Seaborne's contract requiring it to meet milestones in its preparations by specific dates.

That actually fits with something Cersei would do. Although the death (thankfully) didn't make it to screen, Weiss jokingly added: "If you buy the super-extended, super-charged Game of Thrones box set that comes out, the death of Ser Pounce will be in there". Ser Pounce jumped onto Tommen's bed during a secret nighttime meeting between Tommen and his betrothed Margaery Tyrell in season 4's "Oathkeeper".

Elsewhere, Benioff has also confessed how hard it was to work with the cat because you know how cats listen to themselves. Ser Pounce never made another appearance on-screen because, according to the cast and crew, the cast who played him was a "bit of a diva" and a "nightmare" to film with. Who knows? All we can do is wait for April 24.
