The following spoilers are based on the books "A Feast for Crows" and "A Dance with Dragons." The books form part of the series "A Song of Ice and Fire," written by George R. R. Martin. The show "Game of Thrones" is based on this book series.

The producers of "Game of Thrones" may have some trouble filming a scene involving Cersei Lannister. According to a report by TMZ, the production team in Croatia is not getting permission to film a scene which requires public nudity.

According to the books, it is time for Cersei Lannsiter to get humiliated publicly. Fans of the series who have seen the previous seasons will remember the character being very dominant and used to getting her way as the queen regent.

Cersei Lannister has always been suspicious of others. This trait will get her in trouble in "Game of Thrones" Season 5. She believes that the Tyrells are trying to take control of the kingdom by using Margaery Tyrell.

Cersei will hatch a plot to have Margaery Tyrell accused of adultery and treason. Her plan, however, backfires when the High Septon finds out that it is in fact Cersei who is guilty of adultery and has her arrested.

According to the books, she will be publicly humiliated by the High Septon by having her stripped of her clothes in public and made to walk naked from the Great Sept of Baelor to the Red Keep. This is done to atone for all her sins. But with the producers reportedly not getting permission to film the scene, they may have to make changes to this part of the story.

The public humiliation of Cersei Lannister plays an important role in the story line. The event will force her to relinquish her position as regent and make Kevan Lannister as the new regent in "Game of Thrones" Season 5.
