I actually started to like Ros this season, and I thought that scene played out very well. And for the purists, let me just say that I for one am relieved that we didn't have a young black girl stripped and beaten by a bunch of wealthy white aristocrats. I'm not typically politically correct by any means, and I understand compartmentalizing a fantasy series versus the real world, but there is just waaaaay too much baggage behind the original scene from the books. This is the only way it could work, and it did.

Cersei thinks that Tyrion is in love with the whore he gave to Joffrey
That BUGGERS belief

Cersei doesn't see any prostitute, let alone one she suspects is Tyrion's favorite, as a person; they're just disgusting evidence of Tyrion's depravity and lack of character. Neither Tywin nor Cersei have ever shown the slightest bit of understanding for the reasons Tyrion spends time with prostitutes (especially in the books), so why is it surprising she jumps to the wrong conclusion when they find a Lannister chain on Ros (thanks to Varys, I'm guessing)?

she thinks that ros is tyrion's love
it is logical she would make some basic inquiry into who ros is
the hound, varys, LF, joffrey all know who ros is, the whore that tyrion sent to joffrey
again it boggles the mind that cersei would think that this is the whore tyrion loves

They actually set this up in season 1. When Theon is with Ros after the royal party leaves Winterfell he notes the chain that Tyrion gave her, calling it a "good tip." She's been wearing it almost every time she's on screen in season 2.

How is any of this logical or match what we know about Cersei (from either the books or show)?
Cersei doesn't view Tyrion as a person with normal emotions, she (and Tywin) view his frequenting of whores with disdain but they never bother to spend any time trying to understand or learn more about it. Sending his supposed love to Joffrey only emphasizes, in her mind, Tyrion's depravity. It's exactly what she'd expect a vile whore-lover like Tyrion to do.

In the book, tyrion visited alaya many times, establishing that this was someone that Tyrion cared about due to the repeated visits.

She's not exactly the Westerosi Sherlock Holmes after all, and sending his "love" to Joffrey is exactly the type of act a twisted and depraved dwarf like Tyrion would do (from her PoV).
Honestly, you come across like you're complaining about anything for the sake of complaining now.

Exactly. This was actually a clever change by the writers. Well done!

Well, Tyrion did tip her well...yeah, that doesn't make a whole of sense. I also didn't remember the fact that he gave her a necklace; it was an offhand comment from over a season ago. I guess using Ros makes sense since she's the most well known prostitute on the show and in Westeros, but you bring up a good point. I guess Cersei wouldn't beleive her anyway, but it makes no sense that she would play along after what happened to her when Tyrion sent her to Joffrey.

Something tells me D&D were thinking the tv audience would have short term memory.
