Mithras Posted February 23, 2014 Share Posted February 23, 2014 The first thread is locked here. The OP of the first thread must be read, although there are more evidences in the later posts. Amory Lorch died several months before Oberyn came to KL. That means Gregor and Tywin were the only ones in his hit list. Before coming to KL, this was his plan:He was going to demand justice openly and constantly in KL like a bitch (which he did).He was going to speak of Tywin’s mortality in the hearing of the little birds and multiple witnesses (which he did).He was going to poison Tywin with Widow’s Blood at first chance (which he did although his initial plan changed at this stage).Then he was going to simply wait Tywin die from poison.Once Tywin dies from obvious poisoning, what he said to Tyrion would be true. Oberyn was going to be the prime suspect and there would be a strong case against him. He wanted to be heard of killing Tywin. He wanted to be charged by Tywin’s murder.At that point he was going to demand trial by combat.Guess who would be the champion of Cersei against him?He never doubted he could kill Gregor in a trial by combat. This way he was going to get his revenge and return to Dorne with showing his middle finger to Cersei. However, Joffrey’s poisoning and Tyrion’s trial changed his plans slightly. In any case, if it comes to trial by combat, Gregor would be the champion of House Lannister. Oberyn used his chance to poison Tywin. That being done, he offered the helpless Tyrion to be his champion. In return, he wanted to take him as his hostage and puppet Lord Lannister along with Sansa (who he thought Tyrion had somewhere hidden) to Dorne, all the while showing his middle finger to Cersei. Surely Doran talked about how he wished to strip Tywin of everything he hold dear and then kill him. Doran is a reasonable man. He knows that Tywin is a lion and you do not play with a lion, though old it is. His death is enough for him. He wanted to show the ruin of House Lannister to the realm, not to Tywin. That is why, I dont give a credit to that argument. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
