Warning: Contains spoilers from Game of Thrones season 6, episode 4.
LONDON King’s Landing is close to boiling point.
When you throw the scheming Lannisters, the equally scheming Tyrells and the possibly-most-scheming-of-all High Sparrow into one city, it’s always going to end badly.
With six episodes still to go, though, it’s pretty hard to tell who’s going to come out on top.
Luckily, Jonathan Pryce the actor who plays the High Sparrow has dropped some fairly sizable hints. In an interview with Polish magazine Kawerna, Price was asked about how the Cersei/High Sparrow plot will play out in season 6.
Here’s a translation of his response.
“Everyone is waiting impatiently for Cerseis trial in the Sept. Literally everybody is going to be there. My protagonist has let his guard down he is absolutely certain that Cersei will show up (at his request). When the messengers inform him that she hasnt left her home he still believes that she is going to show up at the trial because in his opinion she should be there.
Meanwhile, behind his back and in his closest environment there is some scheming going on and everybody is plotting against everybody. The tension is gradually building as the huge Sept is filling up with people High Sparrow is still happy with the turn of events and he is convinced that everything is going according to the plan. He does not suspect that something unpleasant is about to happen…”
So from the sounds of it, the Lannister/Tyrell plan basically to march the Tyrell army into King’s Landing in order to arrest/kill the High Sparrow could be about to pay off after all.
It’s certainly interesting that Pryce admits his character has “let his guard” down many people think that everything the High Sparrow does is part of a larger manipulative scheme and that he’s already one step ahead of Cersei but Pryce’s response suggests otherwise.
No matter how it plays out, though, it sounds like the scene in the Great Sept will be one to look forward to.
