Lena Headey recently told EW that her character’s revenge on Septa Unella was supposed to be worse than what we saw on our television screens:

“It’s so filthy. It’s so great. Everybody’s witnessed what happened with the two of them. I don’t think people will be able to help going, ‘Yes!’ But it’s so depraved, it’s brilliant. The scene was meant to be worse, but they couldn’t do it. This is like the tame version. It’s pretty bad still though. I’d take being exploded in the Sept over that any day.”

Episode director Miguel Sapochnik says he is unaware of this change but hinted that Unella could be alive:

“I don’t know the details of that. Although I suspect it wasn’t pretty. I think everyone pretty much got what they deserved in pretty much the way it was written. And anyway, who says Septa Unella’s dead?”
