    One of the amazing things about this clip is that Tywin only speaks three times, and yet he dominates the scene. That's presence.

      I love how Joffrey insults Tywin and the room goes silent. Even the King doesn’t mess with Tywin Lannister.

    I like how Tyrion literally threatens the life of the king in front of the entire small council and yet the part where the scary, ominous, “oh shit” music plays is when Joffrey insults Tywin.

      Tywin was always the real power behind the crown, he could care less about Joffrey, he even though of him being stupid, he just used him and his daughter as proxy.
      One of my favorite scenes with Tywin is when he speaks with Joffrey in throne room, it clearly shows power dynamic between two of them and how much Tywin does not give a shit about Joffrey being a king. One of the best and funniest lines is when Tywin says he's gonna move council meeting to his chambers and Joffrey is complaining that he will now have to "walk all the way up there", and Tywin is like "we can arrange to have you carried there". Tywin did not give a shit.

      Yes. And people still fall for this basic editing trick, they think Tywin is the protagonist of the scene.

      Joffrey did start talking shit about Tywin, so that probably set him off.

    • Christopher McManus
      Christopher McManus 2 months ago +2

      It wasn't because Joffrey deserved it, it was because he wasn't a Lannister & Tyrion was. Lannister's being able to threaten & bully kings shows their power which Tywin loved to have. When Joff tries to punish Tyrion he intervenes because Tyrion is a Lannister & therefore should be considered above reproach

      @K H And it was because of his obsession with not suffering the same fate of his father, Tytos: Tytos was a good and kind man, but weak and eager to please. His vassals mocked him and defied him openly, so Tywin took it upon himself into elevating House Lannister into greatness.

      @Thomas Foolery Honestly? Yes, he probably did. If nothing else he could have just blackmailed or frightened literally everyone in that room into claiming Tyrion did it, or even that Joffrey just had a heart attack or something. And Joffrey wasn't more afraid of him because he's a vindictive little fool who thinks he's all-powerful because he's the king.

      @Thomas Foolery He saved the kingdom within in grand return in the capital
      Even robert baratheon was indebt to lord tywin
      That's why he couldn't just dispose off the lannistairs
      Joffrey knew that he was messing with the wrong man
      Tyrion was worthy of tywin's strategic abilities
      Certainly if tyrion was normal
      Tywin would have been much more incline to forget the past
      And tyrion would truly be one of the most feared man in the seven kingdoms
      Remember what tywin said to tyrion
      "Do you think that a crown 👑 makes someone the leader?"
      "It's within an army that reside it's true strength".

    With the subtle haunting music in the background and the sinister look on Tywin’s face, you can’t help but think back to those days at the end of the rebellion, visualizing images of the defenseless capital being needlessly sacked and the queen and her children being raped and butchered, all on Tywin’s orders.
    This short scene gives us a rare glimpse into the true visage of the man behind the veil of stoicism and wisdom. A vicious and ruthless psychopath who will do anything and everything to maintain the flawed power structure he has spent his entire life stepping over bones to achieve.
    That’s the real Tywin Lannister, and all the pretentious and contradictory speeches about family, legacy, and leadership won’t change the true nature of his actions.

      Yea, very haunting indeed. One often question would he ordered many family members killed he found useless if it so suited him in better circumstances. If it meant keeping the family name strong. Would he had Geoffrey die in a freak accident? Cause it very well looks that way.

      @Daniel Tenner They didn't over-estimate anything and they were both competent writers. Any change from the expected and especially how shortened the final seasons were would have made viewers angry. The weird thing is I don't see as many people mad about the awful Hobbit movies compared to the original trilogy.
      The first 4 seasons of this show are amazing, the next two were decent and the last two were milquetoast. It's entirely to blame on Martin and his inability to finish a book.

    UNFORTUNATELY, even with such qualities, he allowed blind hatred towards tyrion become is downfall instead of utilizing tyrion's genius

      I always saw it a bit differently, personally. The remark "A joke! Joffrey did not mean it" came off as damage control. I feel like she knew what Joffrey meant, but wanted to tell him that he shouldn't be saying such things in front of his council. Any remotely capable person would have taken the hint and rolled with it, but Joffrey being the idiot he is, doubled down instead.
      If anything, I figured Cersei was more so questioning the lack of intelligence her son possessed xD

      @Hevosmaailma One one hand I don't envy D&D for having to follow this up, like obviously matching this quality was basically impossible... But I'm still pissed about the final seasons lol.
      Like even GRRM has set the bar so high he's like fuck I don't want to finish it because I know it won't live up to expectations.
      It was literally a no-win situation. GRRM didn't want to be a part of the show after it passed the books so it wouldn't influence his writing. But there was no shot they could match his level of writing.

    Know how this scene is made of Tywin... But when Tyrion delivers his, "Speak softly then, monsters are dangerous beasts and now kings are dying like flies." That was a hard rap on Joffrey.

    The funny thing is that even after being a horrendous psychopath for a solid 90 seconds here, Joffrey gets in one piercing dagger of cold hard truth. And everyone knows it, which is why none of them rush to correct Joffrey and instead wait to see what Tywin will do. And Tywin's answer is frankly as lame and cowardly as can be, but delivered with his usual steely arrogance to jolt everyone back to reality and remember who they take orders from.

    The look of pure hatred in Tywin's face after Joffrey's insult is terrifying to behold. Charles Dance's performance as Tywin was pitch-perfect, captured the true spirit of his character better than anyone else in the series.

    the amount of respect and fear joffrey have for robert is amazing. he trully believe thats his real father and the way he killed targarien prince and took the crown is like a wet dream for him. He thinks hes like his "father", but we all can see they have nothing in common.

    Coming off someone who's never read the books and don't have a good history of these types of show, this scene really showed me what "power" is- it's not a title or what you can do. It's who you can command. Tywin is a monster on the battlefield, and everyone knows that.

    You know, I think if Tywin didn't die, he would've eventually grown tired of Joffrey and his increasingly irrational cruelty and he would've had Joffrey conveniently "removed". Practically every interaction between the two of them is tense with Tywin dominating and telling Joffrey what to do, and Joffrey getting more and more angry. At some point Joffrey would've lashed out at his grandfather and try to assasinate him, and Tywin would've sensed this coming and eliminate Joffrey first.

      Tywins flaw is that he treated his own family as assets. If he was a good family man and kept everything the same he would have dominated Westeros. Him treating his family bad killed him and ruined the good legacy he always wanted.

      Tywin and aerys had a falling out which is why tywin wasn't quick to assist aerys. He waited to see who wins the war. But had rhaegar was alive and joined with jon arryn and the others and rebelled against aerys , tywin wouldve supported him and ditched aerys and wouldn't have ordered the murder in kings landing.
      In terms of a ruler and a leader he was pretty logical in his decision. Though killing the princes family was..... Barbaric and not worth it. He couldve shown mercy to them. They weren't his to kill. Robert and ned were meant to decide their fates.

    Everybody mentions Tywin though its Pycelle's comments, suggestions rather, that served as the fulcrum of this interaction as a whole. Extremely well delivered by actor Glover. Also, the inclusion of him "dropping" the note due to old fingers is great foreshadowing towards the actual pestilence that is Pycelle. Great scene.

      Tywin was far too competent and experienced. If he were left alive I believe he could have managed kings landing properly and recruited assets to help in the war against the starks. He also would have shattered the night king with the piercing stare he has.

      @Haku tywins death is meant to be a turning point in the story. In the books the war of the five kings had been going on for a while and tywin was firmly leading. However his hypocritical and cruel treatment of his son had caught up to him and after his death house lannister falls apart with tyrion becoming a cruel imp,Cersei getting a psychological breakdown and Jamie wanting nothing to do with his family. Unfortunately the show only touches on of these storylines

    This scene shows there is no true king here. Tyrion's comeback was extremely clever. Cersei never really defends Joffrey because she knows where the real power lies and her son can go over board.
