If you haven’t watched the Game of Thrones season finale, then probably don’t read this article.
A lot of GOT characters met their end in this weekend’s season finale. Cersei Lannister – in an effort to avoid standing trial for herincestuous relationship with her cousin Lancel – blew up theGreat Sept with Queen Margaery, her brother Loras Tyrell, the High Sparrow and most of the Faith Militant inside.
In response to this, King Tommen threw himself out of the window.
Now, focusing on Margaeryfor a minute, some people feel that her death wasn’t exactly fair. She was definitely one of the cleverer characters, andto see her killed in an explosion that wiped out multiple characters just didn’t seem fitting.
Natalie Dormer, however, thought that Margaery’sending was perfect:
“I thought it was an inspired choice. And its really interesting that I am given a moment of some vindication at the very end, which was the perfect way for Margaery to leave the show. Shes given a platform to say that she was right, as she always is. But because the power was taken from her, she couldnt do anything about it.
The reason it all goes tits up is because Margaery wasnt in control of the battle against Cersei. She had to hand the reins over to the High Sparrow and Cersei outplays him. By the end, Margaery is a victim of the High Sparrows incompetence. He underestimates Cersei and thats something Margaery Tyrell would never do”
In a separate interview with Harpers Bazaar, she added:
“Id like to think that people will be sad to see the Tyrells unjustly blown to smithereens!
As an audience member you spend so much time with these characters, you get to know them very well and to have them so irreverently snatched from you and killed is really harsh. But thats what real life is and thats why Game of Thrones is the powerhouse that it is.”
Natalie Dormer is now set to star alongside Harrison Ford in Official Secrets(about a British whistleblower) and withEmily Ratajkowski in Into Darkness.
