Moments later, wildfire that had been ignited beneath the Sept on Cersei's orders explodes, and Margaery is killed in the explosion, along with all others present.

She states that; "In the books, I felt [Margaery] was just pushed to the background. A pawn," and "Margaery's cunning was hinted at in the books, especially in her lunch with Lady Olenna and Sansa. Collins writing for Rolling Stone feels that author Martin has been vague about Margaery's ambition and political cunning and describes her as a; "mute mystery whose motives and level of involvement in the game of thrones are unknown [by A Clash of Kings]"  However other writers feel Margaery's political ambition is more obvious.
Madeline of Feministing writes; "Margaery is an ambitious politico as well as being a damn good actress — she plays the part of the tragic, virginal twice-widow so well that almost no one suspects that she is dead set on winning the throne.

Despite frequently being used as a bartering chip, Margaery uses her womanhood to her advantage, knowing that producing an heir will shoot her to power. David Sims writing for The A. Club enjoyed the introduction of Margaery's character in " What Is Dead May Never Die " commenting; "the fun twist to this plot is that Margaery Tyrell is obviously not the blushing maiden she appears to be, but an operator just like everyone else," and "Margaery could just be a cypher, a mostly silent cog in Renly 's plans for dominance, but instead she's going to be a lot more.
Rhiannon of feministfiction writes: Graceful, elegant, and aware of how powerful every word can be. She's an expert at the game that Sansa has only just begun, and it is stunning to see her.
Margaery brings this whole new element to the Game that you haven't seen before, which is basically PR. It's quite a modern ethos on PR and courting public affections, hopefully.
We've all seen politicians kiss babies. Impactful, yes, but bordering on overwrought. She dons a billowing cape with structured shoulders that give a sense of armor.
Without the security of castle walls for protection, perhaps this is her more feminine way of being always armed and on guard for whatever is in store. It cannot be denied that in the show, Margaery strategically uses her femininity as a tactic in maneuvering courtly intrigue, but it is funny to note that what might be her most revealing gown is worn to seduce Renly.
Even funnier is that she knows that seducing Renly is a long shot, but hopes for the best. Though she only has it on for a few seconds, this gown still echoes the stiff armor-like feel in the bodice. This particular gown is very appealing and I wish we could have spent more time with it.

She knows this is a man with whom you must always be on your guard, and this is reflected in the heavy satins and silk embroidery, but she keeps her shoulders exposed just enough to maintain a feminine air.
Sansa is to her side creating an uncertainty in future interactions. Romantic relationships have been built on less In what universe would this ever happen? These two have never had a scene together, and even if they had, I'm not seeing the chemistry. If Sansa didn't go for Tyrion, despite his sheer awesomeness because he's a Lannister even while they were married, then she'd never go for the Lannister most notoriously known as the Man Without Honor. He's also known as the guy who has never had sex with anyone except his sister Still, it's an interesting concept.
Jaime obviously cares enough about her to honor his oath to a deceased Catelyn Stark and sent Brienne after her instead of following Cersei's orders and hunting her down.
They were on the right track before the Red Wedding came and screwed everything up. With him protecting her from his horrible family members and her giving him advice on how to prank courtiers, it was a match in weird Westeros heaven.

In any other situation, these two would've eventually gotten along very well. In fact, I have a theory that they are going to end up re-married by the end of the season. The Stark-Targaryen is easy: The Stark-Lannisters can be solved by Sansa and Tyrion's re-marriage—so long as Sansa stays out of the next assassination attempt.
Can you imagine the sass in the pillow talk between these two? It definitely would not be a very romantic relationship, what with Bronn's blunt "I like you, truly.
