Now that her husband Joffrey is dead in the “Game of Thrones”, Margaery is hoping that she will turn lucky with Tommen. But for that marriage to take place, Margaery has to position herself as a virgin, an image that not many viewers are buying.
Although her first marriage to Renly Baratheon, who preferred Loras, and her second marriage Joffrey Baratheon, who died at their wedding reception, was not consummated, her character does not seem as innocent as she portrays it to be.
“My interpretation is that nothing ever happened [romantically],” Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery in the HBO series, told Vulture. “I think she tried to get Renly into bed, and offered a threesome or whatever to get him moving, but nothing ever happened. It wasn't consummated in any capacity, at all.
“But whether Margaery is a virgin or not is not synonymous with whether she slept with one of her two husbands. I mean, officially, Margaery is a virgin. Even Loras is ambiguous about whether Margaery is a virgin or not, but it's definite that she didn't sleep with either of her husbands.”
The previous episode saw Lady Olenna advising Margaery to go after Tommen to secure her place as the future queen. Cersei is not going to make it easy for Margaery to do that as Tommen is her last surviving son.
“So we're getting deeper and deeper into the machinations, and it gets more dangerous the further forward she steps. And we can predict that Cersei is going to make that path as rocky as possible. And Cersei is an immoral bitch,” Dormer said. The two women are indeed going to lock horns in the upcoming episodes as Margaery tries to win the affection of Tommen, who is still a child.
"Game of Thrones" season 4, episode 5 will air on May 4. The episode is titled “First of His Name,” will feature the coronation of Tommen.
