Threatening: Spoilers ahead for” Game of Thrones” Season 7!
Things aren’t ogling immense for Daenerys( Emilia Clarke) and co. in the field covered by” Game of Thrones ,” but if the Lannisters hadn’t messed with Dany’s plan, we wouldn’t have been able to witness the epicness that was Olenna Tyrell( Diana Rigg) taking down Jaime( Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) as alone she can.
In the final instants of Season 7, Episode 3,” The Queen’s Justice ,” the Lannisters invaded Highgarden and Jaime advises Olenna that her time in Westeros is over. But, come along, we all know Olenna is not one to leave without emitting the last word!
As Jaime assures Olenna that he persuasion Cersei( Lena Headey) to caused her croak a painless fatality — poison in wine — the Tyrell matriarch reveals that she , not Tyrion( Peter Dinklage ), was the one to deadly Joffrey( Jack Gleeson) at his own bridal.
” I’d love to expired like your lad. Clawing at my cervix, sud and venom spilling from my speak, eyes blood red, skin purple. Must have been horrible for you, as a Kingsguard, as a parent. It was ghastly enough for me — a shocking vistum. Not at all what I planned ,” she tells a heartbroken Jaime before adding:” Tell Cersei. I miss her to know it was me .”
Although we as an audience knew Olenna conspired to kill Joffrey at his marry to her granddaughter Margaery( Natalie Dormer ), Cersei has always accused Tyrion and Sansa( Sophie Turner ). She’ll most likely be surprised were told that her little brother had nothing to do with it.
Considering what “shes done to” Myrcella’s( Nell Tiger Free) gunman Ellaria Sand( Indira Varma) in the bout, we can assume that if Cersei knew Olenna’s part in Joffrey’s death, her own mission would’ve been much more pain.
As it stands, tell us create a glass to Diana Rigg’s memorable carry-on as Olenna Tyrell. She shall be sorely missed.( And we’re not just saying that for Dany’s sake .)
