In King’s Landing
Cersei attends a royal announcement by Tommen in the throne room, but is denied standing by his side by Kevan Lannister, her uncle and Hand of the King. Tommen then announces the date that Cersei and Loras’ trials will be held, and that, in consultation with the High Sparrow, he has decided to end the practice of trial by combat as a means of resolving conflicts. Qyburn then reports to Cersei about the “rumor” that she ordered him to investigate, and he remarks that it is “more, much more.”
CERSEI: There’s to be a royal announcement?
KEVAN: There is.
CERSEI: Why wasn’t I informed?
KEVAN: There is to be a royal announcement in the throne room at this very moment. Where are you going?
CERSEI: To stand by my son.
KEVAN: Your place is in the gallery with the other ladies of the court.
TOMMEN: Lords and ladies, the Faith and the Crown are the two pillars that hold up this world. One collapses, so does the other. The Father judges us all. If you break his laws… you will be punished. After conferring with His Holiness the High Septon, we have determined that Loras Tyrell and Cersei Lannister’s trial will be held in the Great Sept of Baelor on the first day of the Festival of the Mother. Furthermore, after much prayer and reflection, the Crown has decided that from this day forward, trial by combat will be forbidden throughout the Seven Kingdoms. The tradition is a brutish one, a scheme devised by corrupt rulers in order to avoid true judgment from the gods. Cersei Lannister and Loras Tyrell will stand trial before seven septons as it was in the earliest days of the Faith. Seven blessings to all.
