Manage episode 358515679 series 2615231
Tyrion is surprised to welcome the feared warrior Oberyn Martell, rather than his more placid brother Prince Doran, to King’s Landing. Oberyn is here for justice. Simon and Mackelly weigh up the chances.
Tyrion Lannister leads a group of dignitaries to welcome and accompany the 300-strong delegation from Dorne across the Blackwater. All the major Dornish houses are represented, but Prince Doran is uwell and has sent his firebrand brother Oberyn, the Red Viper, in his stead. Tyrion worries for Myrcella and peace.
Oberyn has met Tyrion before, whenTyrion was a baby, and Martell a teenager. He was disappointed that Tyrion was not all that monstrous. He relates how Cersei abused Tyrion, and Jamie came to his rescue. All the while their father Tywin was absent in his grief over his lost wife.
Martell wants justice for his beloved sister Elia who was murdered by the Mountain in the Sack of King’s Landing. He wants Clegane and he wants to know who ordered the murder. Tyrion tries to stall, but that triggers an angry reaction from Oberyn. Tyrion tries to warn of the power imbalance. The 300 are no match for the thousands of Lannister and Tyrell forces still in the capital. Oberyn seems unconcerned.
