Manage episode 307698805 series 2615231
Tyrion gets wind of Cersei’s latest plots. He tries to convince Shae to take a job in the Red Keep. He discusses the news from Storm’s End with Varys who shares his hatred of all things magic. Mackelly and Simon try to weave the threads.
Tyrion Lannister learns from Lancel that Cersei plans to hide Tommen at Rosby. Tyrion doesn’t mind this plan, but wants Tommen’s guards to be loyal to him. He sends Jacelyn Bywater to do the job, with a promise of a lordship in return. To this point Bywater has been completely non-partisan - and the lordship is the payment for taking sides.
Tyrion heads to Shae - risking going straight there. He wants her to move to the Red Keep - the city is too dangerous. But the only way he can see to do that is to get her a job as a servant. She’s not pleased. They fight and he slaps her. Out of remorse, he spills the story of Tysha but then regrets being so vulnerable. They leave on bad terms.
With Varys they discuss the fall of Storm’s End. Varys thinks magic was used to kill Ser Courtnay Penrose, but Tyrion thinks there are more mundane explanations. Varys relates his becoming a eunuch at the hands of a sorcerer and his revulsion of magic thereafter. Tyrion is moved by Varys’ tale. They head back to the Red Keep to plan the defenses against Stannis.
