    I thought this episode was fucking epic. Best one in a couple of seasons, other than the cave drawing Scooby-doo clues. (And no, that's not a bid enough spoiler to mark it.)

    Two things:

    1) This episode was really epic.
    2) Talking about the leaked episode in open spoilers the day before it's released is a really shitty thing to do.

    I hadn't even noticed someone did that. And I'm glad because I didn't watch the episode until it aired tonight.

    Arya owning Briene was pretty impressive.

    Is Littlefinger joining "the list?"

    I'm still glad every time we get to see a battle now, instead of just the prelude and aftermath. Those first couple seasons were serious cockteases.

    I think it completely ruins the dynamic between Tywin and Tyrion. Also, his other kids are the ones that are engaging in a time honoured Targ tradition.

    Plus, if Tywin actually suspected Tyrion wasn't his he wouldn't be making half ass attempts at getting him killed in ways that avoided kinslaying, he'd have had him killed in his sleep shortly after birth imo.

    Frankly, him being a time-travelling-foetus would make more sense narratively.

    Tyrion being a child of rape is a pretty popular fan theory. I don't think he's Azor Ahai, but I think him being a Targaryen is pretty likely. It's another one of those things that's more obvious from reading the books though.

    Sure, besides the fact that Tyrion is a lot more like Tywin then Jamie, sometihng that's even remarked by their aunt Genna etc.

    Intellectually, because he's interested in books. Because his father never let him leave the house, and he wasn't going to be training for combat. So he learned.

    Physically, there are a lot of signs that point to Targaryen blood.

    I... when was Tywin ever presented as interested in books?

    Genna was clearly talking personality wise...


    I for one don't remember any Targ being genetic chimeras, like Tyrion's different coloured eyes imply... (heh, maybe Joanna got pregnant by both men, and the kids fused... now that would be a TTF lvl tinfoil)

    And personality is not really genetic, unless Tyrion had inherited Targaryen madness. But Targaryen's are so inbred that any number of birth defects can crop up.

    Tyrion wanted to impress his father, and his father was one of the smarter men in Westeros.

    That's not really settled.

    And yet, he learned 2 tumble also.

    Plus, that's exactly what i'm talking about... making them second cousins ruins the dynamic between them that you talked about.

    The one where Tyrion is desperate for approval but Tywin hates him? Not really.

    He did want that, but it's been so long since I've touched the books that I can't remember why he didn't go through with it.
