So I know that Vashti was either banished or executed. Let's say she was banished. What happened to her? Where did she go? Do any meforshim exist on this?

Huh, I've never heard of this banishment thing before but now that I look at it, it doesn't actually say she was killed. So far I don't see any meforshim saying she was banished though.

I've always heard that there were two opinions on it.

I heard that she's running a diner in San Bernadino.

The megillah strongly implies she was executed.
