So much for Margaery's plan too (if she ever even had one).
That whole climax seemed underdone, and disappointing, to me.
Margaery had one decent moment, I guess. That's about it.
George has been pretty clear from day 1 that he doesn't much care about keeping people happy.
No, that's not...
I don't care that Margaery died. I'm annoyed that it was so by the numbers.
If Margaery and the adviser guy (you can't expect me to remember all the names) had swapped roles in that episode, that would have been more George.
Actually it would have been awesome to have seen adviser guy figuring it out and trying to escape like a rat from a trap.
Edit: And more awesome for Cersei to have specifically targeted Margery because reasons.
Do you mean Maester Pycelle? I don't think it would have made much difference if they'd switched his death for Marge's. And Marge had never had anything to do with Qyburn, whereas Pycelle had always faced off against Pycelle.
It would have been interesting if Margery had been separated form the heard and tortured like the Septa, but I guess they needed to wind up a few arcs before next season.
