The miscarriage scene which was part of the Season 7 leaks was shot but left out of the story. By keeping Cersei pregnant throughout, the writers emphasised the illegitimacy of Daenerys' conquest and placed viewers who wanted Cersei dead in a cruder light. Well done.
Ah yes, the pregnancy that didn't make any sense. She was pregnant by the end of season 7, and still pregnant by the end of season 8 but apparently it was still a zygote because she had nothing to show for despite the months that had taken place in between.
"When the truth offends, we lie and lie until we can no longer remember it is even there. But it is still there...every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later, that debt is paid."
