Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 10 The Winds of Winter
The wildfire is then ignited and completely destroys the Great Sept, killing everyone inside, including the High Sparrow, Margaery, Loras, Mace Tyrell, Kevan Lannister, and Lancel.
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.

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.

HIGH SPARROW: Together we announce a new age of harmony. A holy alliance between the Crown and the Faith.
CROWD: Long live King Tommen and bless you, Queen Margaery!
TOMMEN: The Crown and the Faith are the twin pillars upon which the world rests. Together we will restore the Seven Kingdoms to glory.
LORD TYRELL: What’s happening?
OLENNA TYRELL: He’s beaten us. That’s what’s happening.
TOMMEN: When you attack the Faith, you attack the Crown. Anyone who attacks the Crown is unfit to serve as Lord Commander of the Kingsguard.
JAIME: I’ve been a member of the Kingsguard since before you were born. You don’t have to do this. You don’t have to do anything.
TOMMEN: I have to answer to the gods.
JAIME: Not when you’re sitting in that chair.
TOMMEN: The Crown’s decision on this matter is final.
JAIME: Will I be walking naked in the streets? Or will I spend a few months in the sept dungeons first to teach me about the gods’ mercy?
TOMMEN: You have served your house and your king faithfully for many years. And you will continue to do so. But not in this city.

HIGH SPARROW: Rich or poor, noble or common, if we sin, we must atone. Margaery of House Tyrell came to us a sinner. She stood before the gods in the holy sept and lied. She turned a blind eye to her brother’s sins. She disgraced her house, her king, and herself.
HIGH SPARROW: Lord Tyrell. Ser Jaime.
JAIME: Sorry to interrupt. We’re here for Queen Margaery and Ser Loras Tyrell. Give them to us and we’ll be on our way.
HIGH SPARROW: I don’t have the authority to give them to you. And you don’t have the authority to take them.
JAIME: I speak for King Tommen of House Baratheon, First of His Name.
HIGH SPARROW: The gods don’t recognize his authority in this matter.
JAIME: You’ve already insulted one great house. It won’t happen twice. Every last sparrow will die before Margaery Tyrell walks down that street.
HIGH SPARROW: To die in the service of the gods would please each and every one of us. We yearn for it. But there is no call for it today. There will be no walk of atonement. Queen Margaery has already atoned for her sins by bringing another into the true light of the Seven.

MARGAERY: Loras. Listen to me. You need to stay strong.
LORAS: I can’t stay strong. I never was strong.
MARGAERY: You are strong. You are the future of our house, the future of our family.
LORAS: I don’t care about that.
MARGAERY: Shh! Shh. Have you– have you told them that? That you don’t care?
LORAS: I just want it to stop. Help me.
MARGAERY: They want me to help you. They want me to help tear you down. They want me to help tear you down. That’s why he’s letting me see you. I know it is. And if either of us give in to what they want, then they win.
LORAS: Let them win. Just make it stop. Please.
MARGAERY: All right.
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.
TOMMEN: She grew up.
TOMMEN: Have we caught Prince Trystane’s killers? I expect it was Mother.
JAIME: Your mother wouldn’t do that.
TOMMEN: Yes, she would.
JAIME: Are you angry with her?
TOMMEN: Of course not.
JAIME: Then why didn’t you let her come? She has every right to be here.
TOMMEN: They told me she wouldn’t be allowed in the Sept. If she had tried–
JAIME: They’re not putting your mother in a cell ever again. Not while I’m here. Why haven’t you gone to see her? Everything she endured, she did it for you.
TOMMEN: Don’t you think I know that? I’m sorry. But I can’t.
JAIME: Why not?
TOMMEN: When the Faith Militant seized her and Margaery, what did I do? When they paraded her through the streets like a whore, what did I do?
JAIME: We all fail sometimes.
TOMMEN: The king is supposed to be the Protector of the Realm. If I can’t even protect my own wife or my own mother, what good am I?
JAIME: Go and see your mother and ask her to forgive you.
HIGH SPARROW: Your Grace. Lord Commander.
TOMMEN: I want to see my wife.
HIGH SPARROW: The gods wait for Queen Margaery to confess her crimes and seek their mercy. The king must wait as well.
JAIME: Go and see your mother, Tommen. You’re a bold man.
HIGH SPARROW: On the contrary. I fear a great deal. The Father, the Mother, the Warrior. Do you know why we use these stones? To remind us not to fear death. We close our eyes on this world and open them on the next.
JAIME: You must long for the next life.
HIGH SPARROW: In truth, I fear that, too.
JAIME: You imprisoned and humiliated my sister.
HIGH SPARROW: Your sister sought the gods’ mercy and atoned for her sin.
JAIME: What about my sins? I broke a sacred oath and stabbed my king in the back. I killed my own cousin. When the gods judged my brother guilty, I helped him escape their justice. What atonement
do I deserve?
HIGH SPARROW: You would spill blood in this holy place?
JAIME: Oh, the gods won’t mind. They’ve spilled more blood than the rest of us combined.
HIGH SPARROW: Go on, then. I deserve it. We all do. We are weak, vain creatures. We live only by the Mother’s mercy.
JAIME: They should be closer if you mean for them to save you.
HIGH SPARROW: I don’t. They’d never reach me before you struck.
JAIME: I’ve fought against worse odds.
HIGH SPARROW: No doubt many of us would fall. But who are we, hmm? We have no names, no family. Every one of us is poor and powerless. And yet together, we can overthrow an empire.
