The only real use of the walk of shame, on Margaery would be to foil Cersei's experience by having it fail utterly in its intended damage. And you could do that just by showing Margaery making a different tactic and succeeding or encountering more dangerous personal damage in exchange for much less political damage.
Loras in the books joins the Kingsguard, and after the Greyjoys start attacking his home he begs the small council to send him and an army to liberate his homeland. They tell him that he'll only be allowed to do that if he helps the royal fleet lift the siege at Dragonstone. He goes there, and in trying to storm the castle, gets boiling oil poured over him by Baratheon men. He doesn't die, but last report is that he's in a critical state.
They'd have to do some bending with the story to make any of that work on the show, but maybe it'll happen.
Don't the Tyrells have loads more people in King's Landing? Knights and such? Anything so scandalous would likely be costly to the High Sparrow's army. My question is, what do you think the HS will do if Cersei's new knight is some kind of undead (watch the scenes with him, look at that gray complexion around his helm's eye-slits)?
trial by combat? take out a big player?
I want to know what a single undead warrior is going to do to an organization that seems to have the whole city (outside the aristocracy) supporting them.
