Tyrion + Tysha = Podrick

89 posts in this topic

1. Podrick is awesome and I can't help thinking there is more to him than we know so far.



2. He is about the right age. Shy like Tysha.



3. It is entirely plausible Jamie, out of guilt, might have found a safe place for Tysha after the gang rape with a minor member of house Payne. Alternately, but less plausibly, Tywin might have ordered the Payne in question to take her in.



4. This would explain why Tywin was unwilling to execute Podrick for his crimes. Being from house Payne (the reason given to Tyrion) would not be enough. Being Tyrion's son would make him kin.



5. It would help explain Podrick's absolutely heroic dedication to Tyrion.

Lanna in Braavos is a Red Herring. I say she is Gerion's daughter.

Good theory, if its true he can possibly be the last Lannister standing and a decent one for a change.

For something to be a red herring, it has to be more obvious than the mentions of the sailor's wife and Lanna. It would be explicitly stated or made a much bigger deal of.

It would be nice if it was true, but I think we would have had more clues if that was the case.

Maybe. But isn't the similarity to the Dunk and Egg (Brienne and Pod) relationship a bit of a hint there is more to him?

Yep, Pod had "absolutely heroic devotion to Tyrion" Is why he buggered off after Brienne..

yes it is. He doesn't have a clue where Tyrion went and thinks he will find him again if he finds Sansa. So yes, that is absolutely an example of his rather incredible level of dedication.

Because that is how a red herring is used, or else it really isn't a red herring.

You can think Gerion is the father all you want though, just don't say she is a red herring for being Tyrion's.

As for this speculation, sorry but no. There is no indication that Tywin, Jaime, or the Paynes would do this.

Was Tysha old enough to give birth? And even if she was, how unlikely is it that she could have gotten Tyrion's child instead of anyone else from the Lannister army (which is extremely fucked up).



This would be a neat twist though.

Fair point.

Still, that can be attributed to the fact that Tyrion is the only real father figure of any sort that Pod had.

why?

A red herring distracts/misleads, Tyrion's affiliation with Pod is stronger - and much more obvious - than that with the Sailor's wife and her daughter.

sorry, but all that a red herring needs to do is mislead the reader to believe something that is not true. How much room it is given in the story is not important at all.

If the thing that is to be obscured is more obvious than the distraction, it isn't much of a distraction.

so you think Podrick is obvious? Others on this thread were saying it can't be true because if it were then MORE hints would have been dropped.

I'd believe it if it were anyone but Tywin.

Podrick's backstory is fleshed out enough that I don't see much room for this. Unless Tysha was somehow able to arrange for the Payne's to adopt her bastard son. Which strikes me as unlikely to say the least.
