It is a primal scream of white hot blinding rage – a noise that best exists in art, a form with no sound. Look to your loved ones, look to your ladies, and hear the grinding of the souls wracked by demons in Hieronymous Bosch's The Last Judgement , hear the cries of the innocents bombed by Nazis in Pablo Picasso's Guernica , hear the sound of the twisted, groaning face in Edvard Munch's The Scream.
Tyrion goes on to play a Who Had The Best Dad competition, admiring Ser Jeor Mormont's kindness and care for his charges in the Night's Watch. "We shall never see his like again," he reflects.
Tyrion, the nine-time Balderdash champion of Casterly Rock, knows how to bluster in a crisis. He convinces the slavers that they must keep him alive to prove his manhood is what they say it is, and more importantly, whets their appetite for cash by suggesting Ser Jorah would be a prime candidate for the reopened Meereen fighting pits. "Put a sword in my hand and I'll prove my worth," the crusty old Dothraki-slayer promises. Oooh, goody. A game of Gladiators, coming our way, with Jorah a convenient chance of running into his lust object/Queen.
What with bitchy rejoinders like "Is this a veiled threat?" "What veil?" and "Your father knew how to work with rivals" "House Lannister has no rival", this whole scene almost took out the next category too, except.
Trouble is, Mormont jnr didn't know Daddy was pushing up daisies north of The Wall – well, as much as any corpse can push up a daisy in sub-zero temperatures. It prompted the first real look of sadness on his face since being exiled from Meereen, and before that since he caught Maario leaving Daenerys' chamber pants akimbo.
The girls are obviously keen fighters as they manage to avoid being killed by Bronn, who after all, is insanely freaking effective at killing people. Jaime too manages a solo-handed effort. He also fights off one of the Snakes, heyoooo!
