The Queen's Justice is not about one queen, but two. Here is this week's biggest moments.
The third episode of Game of Thrones, "The Queen's Justice", has a few shockingly memorable moments (like Daenerys and Jon Snow FINALLY meeting, for starters), but the quiet scene in the episode's final minutes is by far its most affecting. After all, the death was a stark opposite to another in the episode, when Cersei imprisoned Ellaria and Tyene Sand.
We also get a brief glimpse of Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), who finally arrives on shore after fleeing during Euron's (Pilou Asbæk) naval assault. She'll have a slow death rotting in the dungeons of the Red Keep, but fortunately we won't see it. Apart from that, fans can watch it on HBO Now, Hulu, Sling TV live online. Euron's "gift" to Cersei is none other than Ellaria Sand, the woman who killed Mycella during the Season 5 finale.
"We've loved Dame Diana Riggs" Lady Olenna since she first rocked up at King's Landing in season three and unleashed her acid-tongue.
"Tell Cersei. I want her to know it was me", she said in one of GoT 's best ever farewells. She killed Joffrey. Well, she orchestrated the whole debacle and hadn't realized that the poison would do what it did.
The character that a large fraction of Game of Thrones fans had been rooting for was suddenly arrogant and seemed unfit to rule the Seven Kingdoms, no better than Cersei Lannister or the Mad King himself. This is more of a game of chess than a battle.
Could the way things went down at Casterly Rock and Highgarden be causing her to question the guidance of Tyrion (Peter Dinklage)? But because she's Cersei, her revenge is steeped in masochism.
Melisandre leaves Dragonstone in order to head to Volantis. Jon Snow and Daenerys met for the first time, but although their encounter was long-awaited, it didn't really go smoothly. There is obviously the hint of Targaryen blood in Jon that may make the coupling questionable - for if Jon is indeed Rhargar's son, not only is he related to Dany, he is in fact, her nephew.
The show also had to work pretty hard to get us there, but the payoff was worth it.
