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: 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.

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.
HIGH SPARROW: And I have kept my word. Once the queen mother’s trial is concluded, Brother Loras is free to leave.
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.

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: Don’t stop at the city. I want little birds in Dorne, in Highgarden, in the North. If someone is planning on making our losses their gains, I want to hear it. If someone is laughing at the queen who walked naked through the streets covered in shit, I want to hear. I want to know who they are. I want to know where they are.

TOMMEN: My mother would like to see her daughter’s final resting place.
HIGH SPARROW: I’m sorry, Your Grace. That’s not possible. Not yet.
TOMMEN: When will it be possible?
HIGH SPARROW: When she’s fully atoned for her sins.
TOMMEN: You cut off her hair and marched her naked through the streets in front of the whole city. That wasn’t the full atonement?!
HIGH SPARROW: No. She must stand trial before seven septons so we can learn the true extent of her sins.
