|Tyrion Lannister by ~Bodach via deviantART|
This illustration is so fantastic to me. Tyrion looks like such a creep and I kind of love that he's essentially in a bathrobe and slippers (which I am not sure is canon at all, or that it even makes sense).
This is one of those chapters that's just such a mind-fuck, and something that GRRM is so good at. We find out that Jaime has been lying to Tyrion for about a decade, it seems like? Tysha wasn't a whore, and Tyrion had actually met a woman who loved him for himself, but his father stole her away from him for his own crazy reasons (which Brendan and I argue about in-depth).
Also, Tywin is super anti-whore, and yet Tyrion walks into the tower of the hand to find Shae in his bed, which results in a pretty ugly side of Tyrion suddenly emerging. Brendan and I also discuss what this means for Tyrion as a human being. Does this make him a bad person, or can Brendan at least see why others would feel that way? What do I think of it? And where do we go from here?
Thanks for listening!
