Will Tyrion lose his tongue?

by birtanpublished on September 11, 2020

Tyrion Lannister has some of the best lines in Game of Thrones he can be wise and funny and tragic and cruel sometimes all at once it's part of why is such a popular character but Tyrians big mouth has often gotten him into trouble he's pissed off a lot of people and one

Theory suggests that someday someone will shot Tyrion up for good by cutting out his tongue lots of people in Game of Thrones have their tongues removed Ilyn Payne had his tongue cut out for

Talking smack about the Mad King and Marillion in the show loses his for singing a song in the books Varys makes his little birds mute taking the tongues from these children so that they keep his secrets euron greyjoy cuts out the

Tongues of the crew of his ship and others and some Bolton men lose their tongues so sometimes it's about punishment sometimes about keeping secrets sometimes it's just cruelty and control for lots of different reasons

Lots of tongues come out and some readers think Tyrion will be next because Tyrion frequently gets threatened with having his tongue cut out Cersei and Joffrey and Jon Khan and

Jorah and Calaca all threaten his tongue at some point both bran and Oberyn say that someone will cut it out one of these days and Tyrion jokes he should do it himself because it causes such trouble so we've got all these direct

Hints that someone will cut out tyrians tongue and there are a few suspects who seem especially likely Cersei is weirdly obsessed with cutting out tongues she mentions the idea in about half of her 12 chapters and Cersei deeply hates

Tyrion she blames him for the death of Joffrey and is convinced that he'll kill her because of a prophecy she's especially always hated the way he makes fun of her his mockery and criticism undermines her power and pride

So if Cersei ever has Tyrion at her mercy in the books it had totally fit for it a finally silenced her hated brother another possibility relates to the conspiracy of Varys and Illyrio in the

Books as this kid called young Griff who Faris claims is Aegon Targaryen Varys and Illyrio want to put this Aegon on the throne but Tyrion seems to suspect that the boy may not be a real Targaryen many readers believe this agon is

Actually a Blackfyre go watch the Varys video but the point is that Tyrion may learn a secret that Varys doesn't want getting out and since Varys already has a habit of removing tongues from people to keep his secrets it's totally

Plausible that Varys or Illyrio might cut out Tyrians tongue to protect their conspiracy a third possibility is Euron tyrion hasn't met Euron in the books yet but Euron is becoming a big bad guy and he cuts out a lot of tongues so he might

Be a suspect as well so it's a strong possibility that tyrion may lose his tongue and this could fit really well with the character arcs of Tyrians family at the start of the story tyrians brother Jaime is defined by his

Ability to fight with a sword that is his source of power and pride and identity until in book three his hand is cut off and Jaime has to redefine who he is Who am I now he asks similarly Tyrion sister so she draws her

Power and pride from her beauty and status which is symbolically stripped from her in this walk of shame so there's this pattern of Lannisters losing what gives them their pride and power and the equivalent of Jaime's hand

Is Tyrion stung Cersei says that Tyrion wields words as skillfully as Jaime wields a sword if like Jaime Tyrians weapon is cut from him he'll also have to redefine who he is without a tongue his passions for conversation politics

Even food and sex will be affected the meaning of his life will be at threat this is a brutal thing to do to a character but author George Martin does it over and over not only with Jaime and Cersei but with bran and aya and Theon

Bran loves to climb and ride so George breaks his back aya relies on her site to survive so George blinds her Theon uses sex to feel less insecure so George gasps treats him when these characters lose what defines them they're forced to

Evolve into a tree God a dark assassin a hollow ghost it's growth then decay then transformation and it makes for great storytelling so Tyrion losing his tongue would fit not only all the threats he's received and

The motivations of his enemies and the pattern in the Lannister family but the author's overall strategy of breaking characters down to see what they're made of and what they can become alt shift X makes videos using Adobe After Effects
