Here are some of the things that will stick with us long after the season finale
Shae betrays Tyrion twice
There are two ways to look at Shae's actions in Season 4. Either she acted maliciously out of jealousy of Sansa and Tyrion's marriage and wanted to hurt Tyrion for sending her away. Or — and in my opinion more likely — she was a woman of no status in a viper's nest who used her only playing chip to secure her (relative) safety. With Tyrion caught and imprisoned, Shae made hard choices for her own survival. Sure, in one of Sansa's beloved songs Shae would've made the noble sacrifice of standing by her man and suffering a terrible death because of it, but Game of Thrones doesn't deal in such sentimental treacle. Regardless of your take on her actions, the repercussions set in motion a series of events that change the course of Westeros history forever.
