Game of Thrones: Olenna meets Ellaria

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 10 The Winds of Winter

In Dorne, Olenna, in mourning for the death of her family, meets with Ellaria and the Sand Snakes concerning their mutual grievances against the Lannisters and discuss the possibility of an alliance, which Ellaria believes will offer Olenna a chance of survival. Olenna bitterly rebuffs the idea; her son and grandchildren are all dead and her house left without a future, so it is not survival she wants. Ellaria rephrases, offering Olenna her “heart’s desire”: vengeance and justice for her house. At this, Varys enters, greeting them with “Fire and Blood”, the words of House Targaryen.

OLENNA: The last time a Tyrell came to Dorne, he was assassinated. 100 red scorpions, was it?
ELLARIA: You have nothing to fear from us, Lady Olenna.
OLENNA: You murder your own prince, but you expect me to trust you?
OBARA: We invited you to Dorne because we needed your help. You came to Dorne because you needed our help.
OLENNA: What is your name again? Barbaro?
OBARA: Obara.
OLENNA: Obara. You look like an angry little boy. Don’t presume to tell me what I need.
NYMERIA: Forgive my sister. What she lacks in diplomacy, she makes–
OLENNA: Do shut up, dear. Anything from you? No? Good. Let the grown women speak.
ELLARIA: The Lannisters have declared war on House Tyrell. They have declared war on Dorne. We must be allies now if we wish to survive.
OLENNA: Cersei stole the future from me. She killed my son. She killed my grandson. She killed my granddaughter. Survival is not what I’m after now.
ELLARIA: You’re absolutely right. I chose the wrong words. It is not survival I offer. It is your heart’s desire.
OLENNA: And what is my heart’s desire?
ELLARIA: Vengeance. Justice.
VARYS: Fire and blood.
