In Episode 9, Season 2 of Game of Thrones (Blackwater) at 44:40, we see what appears to be Queen Cersei punching Ser Lancel Lannister in his armored shoulder. She had just ordered Lancel to bring Joffrey to his quarters when the Battle of Blackwater appeared lost. Lancel did not want to, he claimed that the Knights of the Kingsguard lost their fighting spirit when their King wasn't leading them.
I've looked at the scene several times to try to make out a weapon, but I can't see one. Yet, after being punched in the armor by a woman of apparently average strength and size, Lancel writhes on the floor, moaning.
What am I missing?
I don't remember that scene in A Clash of Kings (which I no longer have), but I would happily accept an answer from the book or the series.
