One last big twist in Season 8?

54 posts in this topic

Tyrion dying, due to any reason, would be a major twist. He seemed upset about the Jon-Dany romance in the last episode. Maybe he betrays Dany for cersei, and then cersei ends up burning him anyways. But I really don't think this will happen.

Not expecting this to happen, but I think it will be pretty cool if this is the twist:

Turns out, Cersei put in a slow-acting poison in the wine Tyrion drank during their meeting in 7x07. The cryptic look on Tyrion's face was because he was starting to feel the effects of the poison and wanted to tell Dany, but was caught off guard by boatsex. However, we won't be able to tell that he's been poisoned until 8x01. Then a few or all of season 8 episodes will follow Tyrion's deterioration. 

Doubt it, mainly because I doubt Cersei has a poisoned jar of wine (let alone a slow-working poison) in her private chambers and because she didn't know Tyrion was gonna go talk to her in the first place.
If Tyrion dies in S8 I doubt it would be due to Cerseis own wine being poisoned anyway. It would be unexpected though.

I think Tyrion plot armor seems him through to the end. 

The most depressing his end will be is he ends up on a vinyard with no real friends as he talked about in Season 6. If he is lucky, he contributes in a meaninful way next year so Dany doesn't dismiss him.

If Tyrion dies in S8, they'll probably have a red priest(ess) revive him. In the unlikely event that he's poisoned, they'll find a cure for him.

Cersei didn't drink because she's pregnant. There was no poison.

Well, one does get curious as to why the wine was in her office if she's not drinking due to pregnancy. It could be Jaime's or Qyburn's, but neither seem like they normally drink. Maybe she's seeing someone. Or maybe she expected Tyrion to come (due to little birds or just being steps ahead) and knew how much he likes wine.

But I know it is unlikely for the wine to be poisoned, so it's probably just S7 writing. Still would be cool, though.

I thought they would always have some wine for any possible visitors. When did that Iron Bank fellow visit? IMO the scene was to make Tyrion notice the pregnancy.

I think so too. Always believed Tywin's "You are not my son!" was meant literally: Tyrion is Aerys' son. So valar morghulis will be for him, but later after revealing he's the dragon's third head.

I like the idea that he is not Tywin's son. But I always have a hard time believing there are two secret Targs. Maybe there are, but for me though, can't really picture it.

Not drinking due to pregnancy is a very recent invention and Cersei is a very medieval lady in that respect. She was drinking wine all the time. 

Might explain Joeffrey somewhat. Besides him being a result of inbreeding.

Yes, it's inconsistent with the time period. And yet she did not drink wine when Tyrion offered her some. Regardless of what her intention was, it seemed like the scene was trying to communicate that Cersei not drinking is in some way related to a pregnancy.

Actually, a lot of women did stop drinking wine. Not because they anachronistically knew about the effects of alcohol on the fetus, but just because alcohol and tannins are both triggers for morning sickness in many women. It's certainly not universal, or even as high on the list as, say, fish or garlic, but it's definitely common enough that people knew about it, and you can find plenty of stories (until the last few decades) where women are relieved to reach week 20 so they can start drinking wine again without throwing up.

And, even if Cersei isn't actually intolerant to wine because of morning sickness, she's looking for ways to get Tyrion to "figure out" that she's pregnant and trying to hide it from him. Refusing wine is another conspicuous hint to drop.
