During the Blackwater episode, it occurred to me how amazed Tyrion must have been by Daenerys when she returns to Mereen in Season 6. Tyrion literally saves King’s Landing in Season 2. He does so much to shore up the political nightmare that he walked into and receives not an ounce of credit or gratitude. When Dany reappears just as Mereen is under seige, he provides his stammered accounting, and she believes him, despite all evidence to the contrary. The difference must have been jolting for him and really underscores that he was never going to be good enough for the Lannisters. I’m so happy that he found a place where he is appreciated.
