Episode three, titled "The Queen's Justice" had almost everything a GoT fans would want to see.
Tyrion underestimates his sister Cersei, perhaps blinded by his desire to get revenge on his father Tywin, who would not be happy if the son he hated so much took the Lannister home of Casterly Rock. But it can also bring us moments like Lady Olenna Tyrell telling Jaime that she was responsible for Joffrey's death right before she dies.
Even as some fans have been dying for the two royals to hook up, completely disregarding that she is technically his aunt, it's hard not to wonder where the relationship will go. "And you don't get an very bad a lot of always-brilliant writing on television, do you?" She hasn't wanted to unleash her dragons or the Dothraki, but at this point, she's going to have to. The episode came up with most desired things which have been on a wait from the first season of the show.
Rigg said she'll miss the "combative" scenes of Olenna, the quick-witted, cunning matriarch. I wasn't heartbroken. And I was like, 'As long as I die on screen...' and [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] were like 'Yeah!' But of course I don't die on screen. Apparently a year (who knew there could be so many informative agriculture-based scenes).
In this "Fire and Ice" behind-the-scenes featurette from HBO, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington talk about what it was like for Jon and Daenerys to finally stand in the same room with their royal counterpart. Finally, both see each other face to face.
He told Entertainment Weekly magazine: "I predicted, like everyone, they would meet this season, but I don't think I predicted it quite as quickly". In the end, Tyrion's persuasive talent managed to ally them and Daenerys agreed to give Jon Snow dragonglass. That helps with the surprise of it. Jaime says nothing, but Olenna asks for him to tell Cersei, explaining that she wants Cersei to know that it was her who killed him. But Jon feels he owes Melisandre for bringing him back to life and also knows that they may need her again in the coming war with the Night's King, so instead of executing her, he banishes her.
