Olenna Tyrell Just Had The Greatest 'Game Of Thrones' Goodbye Yet

Olenna Tyrell Just Had The Greatest 'Game Of Thrones' Goodbye Yet”

But before she dies, she drops the bomb on Jaime, revealing to him she was the one who poisoned Joffrey's drink, and encouraging Jaime to let Cersei know it was her.

In the surprising final scene on "Game of Thrones" Sunday night, Highgarden's ruler Olenna Tyrell is poisoned by Jaime Lannister. Poison, that would let her peacefully drift off.

"I'd hate to die like your son. Clawing at my neck, foam and bile spilling from my mouth, eyes blood red, skin purple", Olenna says. It must have been awful for you, as a Kingsguard, as a father. Joffrey's reign was pretty much terrible for everyone, although it did help Margaery Tyrell weasel her way into power by seducing and marrying the cruel ruler.

"When my daughter was taken from me - my only daughter - well, you can't imagine how that feels unless you've lost a child".

"Tell Cersei I want her to know it was me", she uttered before the episode cut to black.

Cersei has insinuated that she will live out her days in that cell, keeping her alive to make her think about what she's done for as long as physically possible-even declaring that guards will force feed her to keep her alive. Dying in his mother's lap, the terrible child points his finger accusatorially at his uncle before succumbing to asphyxiation. He mercifully offered her some poisoned wine that would ensure she did not die painfully. That's how she ended up with sweet and loving grandchildren who respected her, rather than a brutish brat like Joffrey. Littlefinger had worked with Dontos Hollard to deliver the poison, which was hidden in a stone attached to a necklace given to Tyrion's wife by Olenna.

But she go the last laugh. The Tyrells were in a pretty good political position at the time thanks to this royal match and Cersei's marriage to Loras. You can see a little lump rise in Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's throat, but even the Kingslayer can't come back from a deadly Olenna parry, so he just hurries out of the room to the ironic strains of "Rains of Castamere". With her weaponized eyebrows and sniper-like timing, Olenna doesn't need Valyrian steel to slay.

Margaery: Well he could have done. "I want her to know it was me".

Thanks to Olenna, Joffrey's death immediately led to some devastating consequences. Hell, Jon Snow could wind up leading the charge into King's Landing. Jaime was the only Lannister to maintain any sympathy for Tyrion, helping him escape (on the way out, Tyrion did kill Tywin).
