The Lannisters send their regards.
Last week, HBO released new Game of Thrones products that celebrated the long-anticipated meeting of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. This week, the network has added a new collection of items to the HBO Shop to remind Thrones fans that Lannisters, for better or worse, always pay their debts.
This past Sunday’s episode, “The Spoils of War,” saw the three most prominent (and still-living) members of the golden-haired family become further embroiled in the fight for the Iron Throne. At the top of the episode, Cersei smirks her way through a conversation with an obsequious Tycho, who congratulates the queen on how efficiently she will pay her debts to the Iron Bank with all the gold she won from Highgarden. After all, a Lannister always… well, you know.
Later, Randyll Tarly confirms to Jaime Lannister that the gold made it to the capital — so Cersei’s debt will be paid, the Iron Bank’s allegiance bought. But not so fast! The Lannisters haven’t won the day just yet. Jaime’s men must prepare for another fight when the Dothraki horde appears on the horizon — and is soon joined from above by Daenerys, sitting astride Drogon.

The Lannister forces, inexperienced in the bloody art of Dothraki warfare (not to mention dragon warfare), are crushed in the fiery massacre that follows. But when Drogon is injured, Jaime sees his chance to eliminate his sister’s rival and foolishly charges a grounded Daenerys — all while Tyrion watches from a hill nearby, quietly urging his brother to flee. Jaime doesn’t, and the episode ends with him escaping Drogon’s fire but sinking to the bottom of the river, his fate unknown.
Cersei Lannister’s debt will be paid. But the price just might be steeper than she thinks.
