5. Margaery Tyrell: The Once and Future Queen
I know what you're thinking: If the struggle for power is a game, volunteering to marry psychotic boy kings is like scoring on your own goal. But remember, until a few weeks ago Margaery was married to a man who'd declared war on the Iron Throne. To seamlessly segue from rebel leader to queen-to-be proves Margaery's a master of the game. Plus, she has her brother Loras, the dangerous Knight of the Flowers, on her side. From Tyrion and Bronn to Joffrey and the Hound to Arya and Jaqen H'ghar to Dany and her dragons, we've learned it pays to keep a killer in your corner.
