There are many questions left for David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to answer over the next two seasons of Game of Thrones, the final two seasons. When/if will the Wall fall? Is Daenerys going to rule the Seven Kingdoms? Where my boy Gendry at? And most importantly, when will Tyrion Lannister be able to finish his honeycomb joke? Back in season one’s “The Golden Crown,” while confessing his crimes to the Lady Regent of the Vale Lysa Arryn, Tyrion says:
“Where do I begin, my lords and ladies?
I am a vile man, I confess it. My crimes and sins are beyond counting. I have lied and cheated, gambled and whored. I’m not particularly good at violence, but I’m good at convincing others to do violence for me. You want specifics, I suppose. When I was seven, I saw a servant girl bathing in the river. I stole her robe and she was forced to return to the castle naked and in tears. I close my eyes, but I can still see her tits bouncing. When I was ten, I stuffed my uncle’s boots with goat shit. When confronted with my crime, I blamed a squire. Poor boy was flogged, and I escaped justice. When I was twelve I milked my eel into a pot of turtle stew. I flogged the one-eyed snake, I skinned my sausage. I made the bald man cry into the turtle stew, which I do believe my sister ate. At least I hope she did. I once brought a jackass and a honeycomb into a brothel…”
Tyrion unfortunately gets cut off by Lysa before he can finish his story. Well, the same thing happened five seasons later, in season six’s “No One,” under slightly different circumstances. It happens right after Missandei makes the worst joke Grey Worm’s ever heard, and right before the gang is rudely interrupted by the Masters start attacking Meereen. Here it is.
What does the madam say??? We’ll never know, and fans demand closure.
I care more about this than I do about the Dorne plot line. (Via)
Biggest cliffhanger on the show. They better reveal the punchline before it ends (Via)
I need to hear that joke before this series ends. (Via)
Starting to think that if Tyrion ever does die, it’ll be to interupt him from telling the rest of that joke… (Via)
This and what Podrick did with the whores are the biggest mysteries in the entire series. (Via)
This would be the final scene of the whole story. Tyrion telling the Joke to the new Queen of entire world and the show cut to black before he can finish. GRRM giving you the final finger. (Via)
I literally yelled at my laptop for that scene (Via)
The rest of the joke is probably, “…the keeper asks what they would like. They both respond, some sweet ass,” but at this point, I hope Game of Thrones‘ biggest cliffhanger is never resolved. Meanwhile, I’m still waiting to learn how many Dornishmen is takes to f*ck a goat.
