Why did he kill his wife instead of someone else?

On a side note, there should be a decent level of butthurt from the non book readers after Tywin dies while taking a shit.

The cliffhanger of Jon being stabbed should also provide much rage in the coming seasons.

quote:
[...]Melisandre was robed all in scarlet satin and blood velvet, her eyes as red as the great ruby that glistened at her throat as if it too were afire. "In ancient books of Asshai it is written that there will come a day after a long summer when the stars bleed and the cold breath of darkness falls heavy on the world. In this dread hour a warrior shall draw from the fire a burning sword. And that sword shall be Lightbringer, the Red Sword of Heroes, and he who clasps it shall be Azor Ahai come again, and the darkness shall flee before him." She lifted her voice, so it carried out over the gathered host. "Azor Ahai, beloved of R'hllor! The Warrior of Light, the Son of Fire! Come forth, your sword awaits you! Come forth and take it into your hand!"


quote:
Do you know the tale of the forging of Lightbringer? I shall tell it to you. It was a time when darkness lay heavy on the world. To oppose it, the hero must have a hero's blade, oh, like none that had ever been. And so for thirty days and thirty nights Azor Ahai labored sleepless in the temple, forging a blade in the sacred fires. Heat and hammer and fold, heat and hammer and fold, oh, yes, until the sword was done. Yet when he plunged it into water to temper the steel it burst asunder.

"Being a hero, it was not for him to shrug and go in search of excellent grapes such as these, so again he began. The second time it took him fifty days and fifty nights, and this sword seemed even finer than the first. Azor Ahai captured a lion, to temper the blade by plunging it through the beast's red heart, but once more the steel shattered and split. Great was his woe and great was his sorrow then, for he knew what he must do.

"A hundred days and a hundred nights he labored on the third blade, and as it glowed white-hot in the sacred fires, he summoned his wife. ‘Nissa Nissa' he said to her, for that was her name, ‘bare your breast, and know that I love you best of all that is in this world.' She did this thing, why I cannot say, and Azor Ahai thrust the smoking sword through her living heart. It is said that her cry of anguish and ecstasy left a crack across the face of the moon, but her blood and her soul and her strength and her courage all went into the steel. Such is the tale of the forging of Lightbringer, the Red Sword of Heroes.


i can see where the common assumption is drawn, but still he only tells her that he loves her. it's not a certainty that this is a requirement. only certainty is that a human sacrifice is needed because the animal sacrifice failed.

Will be upsetting if there are no juicy sound effects, or if they do away completely with him sitting on the everyman's throne when he dies.

that would be deeply offensive to me if they leave that out. that was pure concentrated justice, exactly how he died...imo. same with joff.
instead of the brutality we wished for, we got humiliation...an acceptable compensation. they had better not take that away.

Tywin dying on the shitter is the perfect way for him to go and the only reason to change that is either hack writing or the show being unjustly in love with him. Which might be the case with them significantly lessening his doucheiness and making him more awesome.

As book readers, we need to accept the babbification of the show.

Okay, fair enough.

I just see her as a gold digger in both. It is possible that my opinion is tainted because I read the books before I saw those episodes (confirmation bias). I also see her interpreting Tyrion's words as rejection and her causal subsequent migration to Tywin as being similar and understandable in both mediums.

If show Shae just wanted more money, she probably could have asked and Tyrion would have provided, since he's in love with her.

Disagree, obviously, show Shae seems like actual affection/love up to the point of her dismissal. Guess we'll have to see how it plays out.


Well, I see her playing hardball rather than her passing up a good opportunity. That's why she rejected the stipend offer (she knew she could get more).

Serious question (and why I think GRRM wrote the character as he did), does he remind you of your father? Tywin reminds me of father. It's why he pisses me off but I like him, too. His character hits close to home, at times. smile

Oh god no. My father is a hippie who hasn't worked in 20 years. He's Tywin's opposite.

Oh.

Well, Tywin used to be my favorite until I got to the part in the books where he was a massive dick to Tyrion when Tyrion asked for something, anything, for his valor on the battlefield.

We'll get the King's Landing bits in the season finale. Pretty sure next episode is all wildlings vs Night's Watch.

There's a mammoth in the preview.
