Olenna on 'Game of Thrones': The Best Memes, Tweets, and Reactions

He filled her wine glass with poison, which Olenna drank before launching into a blistering final speech which revealed she had killed Cersei and Jaime's son, and one-time Iron Throne occupant Joffrey. Let's hope that the remaining Game of Throne characters, especially the women, learned from her. One of her most ruthless acts of defense was regicide.

After blowing the Great Sept of Baelor sky-high in the show's season six finale, fans began drawing comparisons between Cersei and Daenerys Targaryen's father due to her use of wildfire.

Major spoilers below, so don't read on unless you've seen the latest episode. Knowing that she was about to die, Olenna met Jaime as if for tea. "It's a attractive scene, and Nikolaj is wonderful", she said.

Olenna vs. Gardens: The Queen of Thorns says early on that she takes most of her meetings in the King's Landing gardens because she's anxious about all the spies in the castle.

Olenna never could figure out a solution to the problem of the Faith Militant, and she herself left the capital after being warned by Margaery that her life was in danger from them.

Cricket Australia and ACA agree terms to end pay row
Players subsequently boycotted the "A" tour and warned the tours to Bangladesh, India and the Ashes series were under threat. Australia A's tour of South Africa was cancelled in July amid the row over the scrapping of a revenue-sharing model.

Jamie and Olenna pow wowed for a bit before the one handed soldier shared that death was her destiny.

Olenna vs. Sansa: Olenna's actually fairly nice to Sansa-nicer than nearly anyone else in King's Landing. "It's all coming to head and you have to get rid of less important characters that the audience hasn't had the chance to invest in as much", the star explained.

So those of you theorising that there might be another sting in her tail with Cersei might as well give up the ghost now.

Episode 3 saw Cersei take revenge on Ellaria by poisoning her last living daughter, the Sand Snake Tyene (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers), with the same toxin Ellaria used on Cersei's daughter, Myrcella. But will Jaime, who made a name for himself as a kingslayer for killing the mad ruler before Cersei, have the strength to recognise - and put a stop to - his twin sister's descent into madness? But unless Dany somehow convinces Jon Snow to fight a southern war he seems to have little interest in, it now appears she'll have no other choice. We will have to see if she will destroy her enemies or her enemies will defeat her in the last two seasons. Why bother? As Lady Olenna says, "golden rose soldiers".
