A Clash of Kings Chapter 30

By George R.R. Martin

Chapter 30

Tyrion VII

  • Ser Lancel visits Tyrion late at night on Cersei's behalf and demands he release Grand Maester Pycelle.
  • Tyrion tells Lancel he knows he killed King Robert and that Cersei has taken him to bed. Apparently, Tyrion can read her poker face.
  • Flustered, Lancel argues that he did not kill Robert; he simply gave Robert extra-strong wine—the boar did the actual killing part.
  • Tyrion agrees to keep it their little secret as long as Lancel becomes his informant on Cersei's plans. He also releases Pycelle.
  • Awake and restless, Tyrion has Pod summon Bronn and the horses.
  • They travel to the brothel, and Tyrion uses the secret door to sneak out. He spends the rest of the night with Shae.
