Winterfellian Posted November 20, 2012 Share Posted November 20, 2012 Passivity - Pod dresses Tyrion for the Cersei supper. Tyrion is not active, but passive from the beginning of this chapter. He dresses in Lannister crimson and avoids wearing the chain of his office, because he does not "wish to inflame the relations" with Cersei. This is an odd choice of color if he doesn't want to inflame her. The first thing she will see when Tyrion arrives for supper is red.Interesting observation. I actually took it different. I saw it rather as another peace offerings of sort. Tyrion chose not to wear something that offends Cersei, the Hand's chain, but dresses in their family colors as a form of silent appeal to family unity. By his choice of color he is also reminding Cersei that they are both Lannisters after all. That why I found interesting that Cersei is dressed in green, which is a color that Martin often associates with her (her dresses and jewels are often described as complementing her green eyes).To me Tyrion was actually going to the meeting in more conciliatory terms, until Varys innocently chooses the very moment before the meeting to give Tyrion the news about the Starks. Varys's timing is intriguing to say the least, specially if we consider he probably knew what was awaiting Tyrion as dessert. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
