Chapter Forty-Two - Tyrion 6 - A Game of Thrones | A Song of Ice and Fire

Tyrion and Bronn find themselves in a tough spot. Stuck on the High Road with nothing between them and the dangerous mountain clans. But, like always, Tyrion has a plan. It's no doubt a gamble and their lives are the stakes. Simon and Mac discuss the ins and outs of Tyrion's gambles thus far, contemplate missed opportunities, and conjecture about Tyrion's retribution plans for Lysa Arryn. Chapter Review: Bronn might have won Tyrion Lannister his freedom in the trial by combat but they're both far from safe. Now they're stuck on the High Road with no protection but Bronn's sword and Tyrion's mouth. It's the latter that Tyrion plans on using to save them. While they rest, Tyrion tells Bronn of the logic behind his gamble with the trial by combat. He also knows that Bronn will sell him out, like he did to Cat, as soon as the right offer is made. Tyrion tells Bronn that he was once married. However, when Tyrion's father Tywin found out, things did not end well. Eventually, the mountain clansmen find them but before they can kill Bronn and take Tyrion captive, he makes them an offer they can't refuse. All the steel weapons they want from his lord father, and on top of that the Vale of Arryn. Characters/Places/Names/Events: Tyrion Lannister - Youngest son of Tywin Lannister.
