Game Of Thrones Recap: S6E7 “The Broken Man”

King’s Landing: Cersei, the Tyrells, the Sparrows

Margaery and the High Sparrow speak about the efficacy of their beliefs regarding the poor. He asks about Margaery’s sex life with Tommen. She explains (in a much nicer way) that his torment to drive away her desires drove them all away. He nonetheless creepily pushes her toward the worst sounding sex imaginable to give Tommen an heir. After, he implicitly threatens the Queen of Thorns with a smile.

Septa Unella accompanies the queen to visit her grandmother. She has to play the game even against the legendary Tyrell matriarch as the shifty septa watches. In her compelling way, she manages to communicate the need to leave the threats in the capital. Olenna seems to understand this, if not everything, a thought confirmed by a note passed from granddaughter to grandmother: the Tyrell rose. She smiles. Her beloved granddaughter hasn’t changed after all.

The Broken Man

As she prepares to leave, Cersei arrives. She blames her but even Cersei’s admission of her mistakes doesn’t sway the old lady who’s only satisfaction at the mess her country and house is in is that Cersei was left powerless and surrounded by enemies because of it.
