Tyrion hates the word 'whore.'
On the show: Tywin Lannister breaks the first rule of the Game of Thrones. He antagonizes someone holding a crossbow at him while unarmed and half naked. Basically a raw nerve of angst and rage after his first kill, Tyrion warns his dad not to use the “w” word, then declares his love for…Shae? So obviously Tywin, with all the self-preservation skills of a horror movie girl, immediately calls her a whore and his stupidity is immediately rewarded.
Wait, what? Back the hell up here. Tyrion doesn’t love Shae, he loves his first wife Tysha. Tysha the commoner who loved Tyrion for himself and married him when they were teenagers. Tysha who was revealed by Tywin to be a whore angling for money and who forced Tyrion to watch the entire garrison have sex with her before making Tyrion pay her for her trouble and banish her. Tysha who Jaime reveals to have never been a whore and how Tywin lied meaning Tyrion paid his wife for her own gang rape. Information Jaime imparts DURING TYRION’S JAILBREAK which is the exact reason he detours from escaping to confront his father. Without Tyrion asking his father ‘Where do whores go?’ before setting out to search for Tysha across the Narrow Sea, what will Tyrion be doing next season? Also, without Jaime’s admission Tyrion isn’t able to throw Cersei’s unfaithfulness in his face and drive that wedge between the twin lovers.
