HBO has yet to announce Game of Thrones’ premiere date for Season 7 of the hit show—currently the #1 Ranked Show on ComicBook.com—but as filming winds down and rumors flare up it’s only a matter of time before we return for Westeros.
Unfortunately, due to the series’ very close relationship with death and murder, we won’t be seeing some of our favorite characters come back for another round of intrigue and deceit.
DANCES WITH WOLVES: Game Of Thrones Production News Hints At A Reunion
After maneuvering her way to one of the most powerful positions as Queen of Westeros, Margeary Tyrell and her brother Loras met a grisly and green fate at the hands of her mother-in-law, Cersei Lannister.
Cersei had made the mistake of granting power to the High Sparrow of the Faith of the Seven in King’s Landing, who militarized his followers and took control in a way the King couldn’t.
No matter, as she maneuvered for a large gathering to take place in the Great Sept and killed everyone in attendance by burning the place down with a bunch of wildfire. The Tyrell siblings went down in the blaze.
“You’ve got to give credit to [D.B. Weiss] and David [Benioff]—the creators of the show—they just keep coming up with new ways of killing people,” Dormer said. “I think wildfire was pretty imaginative. It would have been over quickly. I wouldn’t have wanted Margaery suffering any pain, so.”
Dormer is playing a new character in the forthcoming BioWare game Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Finn Jones, who played her brother Loras on the show, is now starring as Iron Fist in the next Marvel Netflix series.
So even though they were literally fired from one job, they weren’t unemployed for long!
