Was Tyrion Finally Being Smart Again?

HBO
  • Euron had already proven, through the naval battle, that the large Scorpions could kill Daenerys’ dragons and Daenerys has ONE left (Drogon). Notice the castle has gigantic scorpions on every battlement and Drogon was placed out of range of them during this scene?
  • Cersei has spent her entire life trying to kill Tyrion. She only chose to let him live after their meeting in Kings Landing because she needed him to go back and convince Daenerys that she had a reason to want the White Walkers destroyed (the reason was her pregnancy). Tyron’s gullibility was the central element in her plot. And by the way, she just sent Bron to kill Tyrion too.
  • Tyrion marches up to the fully manned walls of Kings Landing representing a force of what looks like it is less than 1000 unsullied strong.
  • Cersei probably has more gold cloaks than Daenerys had forces standing outside of King’s Landing in that last scene.
  • Cersei probably has more archers than Daenerys had forces standing outside of King’s Landing in that last scene.
  • Cersei certainly has more Golden Company members than Daenerys had forces standing outside of King’s Landing in that last scene.
