Tyrion Kills Shae and Tywin

What an emotional roller coaster. I was all set for the death of Tyrion after Oberyn's loss at the trial-by-combat, but a last-minute miracle happens when Jaime sets him free. Rather than just running off with Varys, though, he takes a detour to his father's chambers. Surprise, surprise: his former love Shae is there, and the two have their final lover's quarrel. With Shae dead, he moves on to Tywin, who's on the toilet and, shall we say, a sitting duck. There are some final words about what a crappy father Tywin is, and then boom: patricide by crossbow. Sometimes Game of Thrones does deliver its own kind of justice.
