|Widow's Wail, by feliciacano via deviantART|
This image may have been more appropriate last chapter, when Joffrey actually received Widow's Wail from Tywin, but I just found it today, and can you believe that there are no illustrations of Joffrey's death!? What is up with that?
This chapter is SO LONG. So much happens. Tyrion starts out thinking about the implications of Joffrey possibly sending the assassin to kill Bran, and what it means for him now that he's made it so obvious that he knows. He goes to the wedding ceremony drunk and nauseous, and has to sit through a horrifically awkward and painful ride in a litter with Sansa. And then he has to go to the reception.
WELL THAT GOES WELL!
People who hate Tyrion more on reread, can you explain why? Even in ROT13? Because I DON'T GET IT. He just wants love, and isn't that what we all want? AND JOFFREY IS DEAD! But we can't even ENJOY it because it's so quickly followed by the accusal of Sansa and Tyrion of the murder. WHAT THE HELL, GRRM I HATE YOU SO MUCH YOU CAN'T EVEN LET ME ENJOY THE DEATH OF THE ONLY LANNISTER AGH.
