That they are having Jaime and Brienne return before the Purple Wedding, according to TV Guide.
croclock asked: gaah tyrion X penny creeps the hell outta me! plus, don’t you find her annoying? although that kinda seems like the whole point… but at times during the book i found myself wondering if she was really necessary, if her characer actually added anything… how do you feel about her if i might ask??
I think Penny is a plot device in character form, really. She shows Tyrion how, even though he’s felt mistreated his whole life for being a dwarf, he had it pretty well. True, in A Game of Thrones he says he’d likely have been left to die if he was a commoner, but that’s really all he thinks on the subject.
She also serves as an easy way to show how far Tyrion has fallen, morally speaking. He loathes her, even as he tries to save her. I honestly don’t see him going out of his way to do that much longer, especially once the fighting starts. Tyrion, after having endured being called a monster, is now acting the part. And while it’s true there may lie redemption along the way with Penny, I don’t think Tyrion wants redemption.
He wants vengeance, fire, and blood. He wants to ride a dragon, not a pig. He wants his family to die and his wife back.
Considering Penny’s mother was not a little person, who used to sing to her and her brother, and who is dead, I don’t think Tyrion’s getting his wife back. (Tyrion thinks Penny is seventeen. I think she’s probably quite a bit younger, closer to 13. She acts immature because she is.) The question is when will Tyrion figure this out… and knowing GRRM, knowing Lannisters, I’m guessing probably after it’s gone too far with the girl. I’d bet any money on her singing “Seasons of My Love”, after, all sweet and romantic… and then Tyrion will come to the right conclusions and totally flip out.
And yes, I know about the the whore Lanna at the Peach, and the Sailor’s Wife and her daughter Lanna in Braavos. They’re red herrings, for the simple fact that Tysha wasn’t a whore. “Where do whores go?” There’s your problem, Tyrion. Jaime told you, and you forgot in favor of dwelling on what your dad said instead. Lord knows where whores go… but a traumatized young girl might end up in Oldtown, where she’ll find refuge with a little person who reminds her of her lost love, and do her best to raise the babies she nicknames after coins. Her spare change, if you will.
So, yes, Penny is a plot device, in the best Greek tragedy style. She’s there to provoke Tyrion’s final descent into madness and monstrosity, and it will be amazing.

Catelyn is only 40th, which is very disappointing to me.
oberyn martell right now
let us pray
I would choose freedom over comfort every time.
I was just sitting there like…THAT WAS IT?! And it makes me angry because the bath was perfect. This was rushed and none of my favorite lines were there and just ugh.
I should have known D&D would fuck up my very favorite thing in the whole damn series. Oh well.
I really wish they added in the maiden line because it’s Jaime’s way of asking her if she’d been raped. But noooope. It’s more important to humiliate Locke. Who we don’t give a fuck about.
