SQ Reads: A Clash of Kings – Chapter 3

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series A Clash of Kings

Tyrion. Tyrion rules. He’s the least disgusting of all the Lannisters, and that’s saying something. He’s my favorite Lannister character, and that’s not even accounting Peter Dinklage. He’s cool.

I have so many notes for this chapter, and mostly they’re one liners that I quickly jot down as I read how awesome Tyrion is. Also, as you will see, these notes are written as I read, and some questions I ask gets answered by the end of the chapter. Nice!

  • “You,” Hahaha, so that’s where Little Shit gets it from. Tyrion is so awesome, he pulls awesomeness out of other people.
  • Hmm, what’s this letter from dad?
  • Varys suspects it forged? He’s usually right in these matters.
  • Oh, dear. Tyrion is the new Hand of the King?!
  • Oh, I’ve almost forgotten about Littlefinger and the dagger.
  • Now, Cersei, even a dwarf can lead an army.
  • So, Little Shit appointed Tywin as his Hand, and Tywin appointed Tyrion. Messy.
  • A bit of history lesson on how previous Hands died.
  • Tyrion is fond of small jokes isn’t he? Pretty sure it’s his strategy so people would dismiss him. Smart.
  • Tyrion promises Jaime in return for Cersei’s support. What’s he up to?
  • Hmm, Cersei thinks Arya is dead. Advantage!
  • Cersei trusts no one but needs them.
  • Tywin suspects something about the court. Varys? Littlefinger, maybe?
  • Ha, Cersei [i]was[/i] angry when Little Shit killed Eddard.
  • “Unique way to win the hearts of the people.”
  • Little Shit is fond of his dog Sandor Clegane, huh.
  • Cersei is very protective of Little Shit.
  • Ha! “Certainly,” he lied. Amazing piece of text by George as usual.
  • BAHAHAHA Slapped thtee times! Best scene of the chapter!
  • Cersei is born to be a widow.
  • Tyrion wants no harm to come to Sansa. Possible ally? He’s following on his “little lion” promise.
  • Tyrion wants the heads taken down. Respect?
  • Maybe important: war -> roads closed to south and west.
  • Cersei: tripled city watch and other defenses. So, I guess lowering other things?
  • Littlefinger taxes incoming people.
  • Several mentions of Wildfire. Is it something like a grenade perhaps?
  • Tyrion really fell hard for Shae.
  • Oooh, Tyrion can speak Varys. Nice.
  • Oooh, Shae be dirty-minded with Tower of the Hand jokes.
  • Shit’s getting real. Tyrion does justice?! Possible ally!

Tyrion RULES! Can’t wait for next chapter!
