Mess with the Queen of Thorns, and you're going to get cut.
"Game of Thrones" features a lot of badass women, including one sharp-tongued, sharp-witted Lady Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg). As far as politicking, backstabbing, and scheming go, the matriarch has been there, done that. But family always comes first, and when her grandchildren are imprisoned by the religious Sparrows — well, they've messed with the wrong lady.
Entertainment Weekly unveiled this deleted scene from season 6 -- included in Nov. 15 Blue-ray/DVD release — in which Olenna tells her son, Mace (Roger Ashton-Griffiths), what's what upon his return to King's Landing. "Cersei Lannister sent you to Braavos to get you out of her way," she explains to her dim-witted son.
But now, the Tyrells need to assert themselves since Mace's son Loras (Finn Jones) and daughter Margaery (Natalie Dormer) have been locked up. Olenna has been invited to King Tommen's Small Council meeting. Does this mean she's taken over Mace's job as Master of Coin?
"It means I am the Mistress of getting my grandchildren out of bloody prison," she declares.
Well, we know how that ends up. But you can't fault Olenna's determination.
