Lady Olenna Of House Tyrell met her demise as the hands of Jaime Lannister. The ancient House of Tyrell officially dies with Olenna—the series has never been concerned with Willas, Garlen, or any of the other minor members of the family. So that’s it, the rose is dead on the vine. Lady Olenna did admit to murdering Joffrey Lannister with poison way back in season 4. A little bit of shade to the Lannisters.
Lady Olenna has been a master of court politics and intrigue par excellence throughout her life. She’s also known for her wit and sarcasm. As a result, Lady Olenna is popularly nicknamed the Queen of Thorns, in reference to the Tyrell sigil – a rose – and her cutting barbs. In many ways she is the de facto head of House Tyrell at the time of the War of the Five Kings and appears to hold a great deal of influence over the Reach. After most of her family are killed in the Destruction of the Great Sept of Baelor, an event orchestrated by Cersei Lannister, Olenna’s desire for vengeance.
Fans took to social media to remember the late character who is another casualty in the ongoing wars in Game of Thrones. What did you think of the latest episode of Game of Thrones? Are you hoping to see Team Dragon make a comeback on the show? Let us know in the comments section.

George R.R. Martin’s best-selling book series “A Song of Ice and Fire” is brought to the screen as HBO sinks its considerable storytelling teeth into the medieval fantasy epic. It’s the depiction of two powerful families — kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and honest men — playing a deadly game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, and to sit atop the Iron Throne. Martin is credited as a co-executive producer and one of the writers for the series, which was filmed in Northern Ireland and Malta.
