Tyrion beats Joffrey
Joffrey Lannister was one of the most annoying characters in television history. So it was only satisfying to see Tyrion land his five fingers on Joffrey’s face. Talking to his uncle, Tyrion didn’t put up with any of his nephew’s tantrums and what follows is a meme-worthy scene where Joffrey just about gets a slap in the face.
Tyrion kills Shae
One of the most heartbreaking scenes with Tyrion. Just as he is about to leave King’s Landing, he makes a quick stop to check on his father, only to learn that he slept with Shae. Heartbroken, Tyrion ends up killing her in a guilt-ridden scene. Tyrion really loved her and Shae’s betrayal was just too much for him.
Tyrion kills Tywin
After killing Shae, Tyrion goes after Tywin, who seems quite busy in the restroom. After some back and forth, Tyrion finally lets go of the arrows on the crossbow and kills his father. Tyrion is now finally free from his father’s grip and years of disdain and unacceptance are finally at an end.
The Battle of Blackwater
Seeing combat for the first time in his life, Tyrion had devised a plan that could take out Stannis’ army in the same way. Only he wouldn’t know if it would be successful or not. But the moment the fire arrow landed on the Wildfire, it was a visual spectacle that perfectly showcased Tyrion’s intelligence.
Trial by combat speech
When Tyrion was tried for Joffrey’s murder, he finally let go after years of abuse. He would call everyone in Kings Landing ungrateful and deliver a monologue that would send shivers down your spine. If ever there was an acting master class Game of Thrones, then it would be this scene. House of the Dragon: Peter Dinklage discusses the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series.
