QYBURN: What are your thoughts concerning the king’s funeral? As the Sept of Baelor is no longer an option, perhaps a ceremony in the throne room?
CERSEI: He should be with his grandfather, his brother, his sister. Burn him and bury his ashes where the sept once stood.

Game of Thrones: Septa Unella meets Ser Gregor

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 10 The Winds of Winter

Septa Unella is captured and imprisoned by Cersei, who gleefully confesses to all of her sins, including killing her husband Robert Baratheon and her ongoing incestuous relationship with Jaime; Unella is then given to Ser Gregor to be tortured.

CERSEI: Confess. It felt good. Beating me, starving me, frightening me, humiliating me. You didn’t do it because you cared about my atonement. You did it because it felt good. I understand. I do things because they feel good. I drink because it feels good. I killed my husband because it felt good to be rid of him. I fuck my brother because it feels good to feel him inside me. I lie about fucking my brother because it feels good to keep our son safe from hateful hypocrites. I killed your High Sparrow and all his little sparrows all his septons, all his septas, all his filthy soldiers, because it felt good to watch them burn. It felt good to imagine their shock and their pain. No thought has ever given me greater joy. Even confessing feels good under the right circumstances. You’ve always been quiet. I said my face would be the last thing you saw before you died. Do you remember?
SEPTA UNELLA: Good. I’m glad to see your face. I’m ready to meet the gods.
CERSEI: What? Now? Today? You’re not going to die today. You’re not going to die for quite a while. Ser Gregor. This is Ser Gregor Clegane. He’s quiet, too. Your gods have forsaken you. This is your god now.

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 10 The Winds of Winter

Inside the Sept, Margaery becomes suspicious of both Cersei and Tommen’s absence and tries to warn the crowd to leave, but the Faith Militant blocks the doors.

MARGAERY: There’s something wrong.
HIGH SPARROW: You have nothing to fear, Your Grace. The trial will begin shortly.
MARGAERY: Cersei is not here. Tommen is not here. Why do you think they’re not here?
HIGH SPARROW: If the accused is not here, she will be tried regardless. We cannot escape the justice of the gods–
MARGAERY: Forget about the bloody gods and listen to what I’m telling you. Cersei understands the consequences of her absence and she is absent anyway, which means she does not intend to suffer those consequences. The trial can wait. We all need to leave. We all need to leave now.

Game of Thrones: The Trial at the Great Sept of Baelor Part 1

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 10 The Winds of Winter

In King’s Landing, on the day of Cersei’s and Loras’ trial, the High Sparrow and many of the city’s elite gather at the Great Sept of Baelor. Loras is brought forward and confesses to his homosexuality and begs to atone by giving up his name and titles as the heir of House Tyrell, and joining the Faith Militant. However, Cersei fails to appear to the trial, and the High Sparrow sends Lancel to retrieve her.

HIGH SPARROW: Ser Loras Tyrell. Are you prepared to stand trial and profess your guilt or innocence before the Seven?
LORAS: There’ll be no need for a trial. I confess before the Seven and freely admit to my crimes.
HIGH SPARROW: To which crimes will you be confessing?
LORAS: All of them. I lay with other men including the traitor Renly Baratheon. I perjured myself before the gods. I am guilty of depravity, dishonesty, profligacy, and arrogance. I see that now. I humble myself before the Seven and accept whatever punishment the gods deem just.
HIGH SPARROW: The gods’ judgment is fierce, but also fair. The Warrior punishes those who believe themselves beyond the reach of justice. But the Mother shows her mercy to those who kneel before her.

Untitled-3

LORAS: I take full responsibility for my many sins and unburden myself of my desires. My only remaining wish is to devote my life to the Seven. May I be a living example of their grace for others to witness.
HIGH SPARROW: You understand fully what this means?
LORAS: I do. I will abandon the Tyrell name and all that goes with it. I will renounce my lordship and my claims on Highgarden. I will never marry and I will never father children.
HIGH SPARROW: Brother Loras I ask you to dedicate your life to the seven gods. Will you fight to defend your faith against heretics and apostates?
LORAS: I will.

MARGAERY: You mutilated him. You gave me your word.

MARGAERY: And where is the queen mother?
LANCEL: Her litter never left the Red Keep.
HIGH SPARROW: It appears the queen mother doesn’t wish to attend her own trial. Go to the Red Keep and show her the way.

Game of Thrones: The royal announcement

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 08 No One

Cersei attends a royal announcement by King Tommen in the throne room, but is denied standing by his side by Kevan Lannister, her uncle and Hand of the King. Tommen then announces the date that Cersei and Loras’ trials will be held, and that, in consultation with the High Sparrow, he has decided to end the practice of trial by combat as a means of resolving conflicts.

CERSEI: There’s to be a royal announcement?
KEVAN: There is.
CERSEI: Why wasn’t I informed?
KEVAN: There is to be a royal announcement in the throne room at this very moment. Where are you going?
CERSEI: To stand by my son.
KEVAN: Your place is in the gallery with the other ladies of the court.

TOMMEN: Lords and ladies, the Faith and the Crown are the two pillars that hold up this world. One collapses, so does the other. The Father judges us all. If you break his laws… you will be punished. After conferring with His Holiness the High Septon, we have determined that Loras Tyrell and Cersei Lannister’s trial will be held in the Great Sept of Baelor on the first day of the Festival of the Mother. Furthermore, after much prayer and reflection, the Crown has decided that from this day forward, trial by combat will be forbidden throughout the Seven Kingdoms. The tradition is a brutish one, a scheme devised by corrupt rulers in order to avoid true judgment from the gods. Cersei Lannister and Loras Tyrell will stand trial before seven septons as it was in the earliest days of the Faith. Seven blessings to all.

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 08 No One

In King’s Landing, The Faith Militant, led by Lancel with King Tommen’s blessing, arrive to take Cersei to see the High Sparrow (whom they now refer to as the High Septon). Cersei refuses to go with them and when one of the Faith Militant attacks, he is brutally killed by Ser Gregor Clegane.

LANCEL: Your Grace, His Holiness the High Septon wishes to speak with you at the Great Sept of Baelor.
CERSEI: His Holiness the High Septon is welcome to see me here in the Red Keep.
LANCEL: Your Grace, this is not a request.
CERSEI: It is a request, Cousin Lancel. You are asking me for something, I’m refusing.
LANCEL: The High Septon commands you. Are you sure you want to refuse him?
CERSEI: He promised me I could stay in the Red Keep until my trial.
LANCEL: He made no such promises. If you refuse to come of your own free will–
CERSEI: Get out.
LANCEL: Move aside, ser. Order your man to step aside or there will be violence.
CERSEI: I choose violence.

Game of Thrones: Cersei and Olenna

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 07 The Broken Man

In King’s Landing, Cersei confronts Olenna, and tries to convince her to stay and fight the Sparrows. Olenna points out that they have already lost and blames the Sparrows’ rise to power on Cersei’s lack of foresight. Despite having no allies in King’s Landing, Cersei decides to stay and fight.

CERSEI: I heard you were leaving King’s Landing.
OLENNA: That is hardly your concern.
CERSEI: Your grandson is still a prisoner. You’ll leave him rotting in a cell?
OLENNA: Loras rots in a cell because of you. The High Sparrow rules this city because of you. Our two ancient houses face collapse because of you and your stupidity.
CERSEI: You’re right. I made a terrible mistake. I carry it with me every single day.
OLENNA: Good.
CERSEI: I delivered an army of fanatics onto our doorstep. And now we must fight them together. We need each other.
OLENNA: I wonder if you’re the worst person I’ve ever met. At a certain age, it’s hard to recall. But the truly vile do stand out through the years. Do you remember the way you smirked at me when my grandson and granddaughter were dragged off to their cells? I do. I’ll never forget it.
CERSEI: You love your granddaughter. I love my son. It’s the only truth I know. We must defend them.
OLENNA: I’m leaving this wretched city as fast as I can before that shoeless zealot throws me into one of his cells. If you’re half as bright as you think you are, you’ll find a way out of here, too.
CERSEI: Never. I’ll never leave my son.
OLENNA: What’ll you do, then? You have no support. Not anymore. Your brother’s gone. The High Sparrow saw to that. The rest of your family have abandoned you. The people despise you. You’re surrounded by enemies, thousands of them. You’re going to kill them all by yourself? You’ve lost, Cersei. It’s the only joy I can find in all this misery.
