Game of Thrones – Epic Tyrion speech during trial

Shae. Please don’t. I am a whore, remember? That was before he married Sansa. After that, all he wanted was her. But she wouldn’t let him into her bed. So he promised to kill King Joffrey for her. Father, I wish to confess! I wish to confess! You wish to confess? I saved you. I saved this city and all your worthless lives. I should have let Stannis kill you all– Tyrion. Do you wish to confess? Yes, father. I’m guilty. Guilty. Is that what you want to hear? You admit you poisoned the King? No, of that I’m innocent. I am guilty of a far more monstrous crime. I am guilty of being a dwarf. You are not on trial for being a dwarf. Oh, yes I am. I’ve been on trial for that my entire life. Have you nothing to say in your defense? Nothing but this: I did not do it. I did not kill Joffrey but I wish that I had. Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores. I wish I was the monster you think I am. I wish I had enough poison for the whole pack of you. I would gladly give my life to watch you all swallow it. Ser Meryn, escort the prisoner back to his cell– I will not give my life for Joffrey’s murder. And I know I’ll get no justice here, so I will let the gods decide my fate. I demand a trial by combat!


  1. Bravo Tyrion Lannister!!! For years to remember!!! The character, the speech, the performance all pure perfection!!!

  2. I still remember how i was feeling when i first watched this scene, mixed. There were little tears in my eyes because of what tyrion had to face all of his life and it was on peter's face what a brilliant acting. Then smile on my face because hi finally face his father for all that and this music to make me feel thrill in my heart. Everything was perfect back then, specially dialogues. Initially no music was there acting and dialogues alone made it superb.

  3. This was when Tyrion had a brain. By season 7-8 he became an imbecile who only made jokes about dickless men.

  4. Wherever in the got episode he said…The most fameous dwarf in the world…nd prooved with his acting…😍🔥🙏

  5. 90% of the comments now- people complaining about how bad the s8 writing.
    10% complaining about how Tyrion turned out in the later seasons

  6. I still watching this over and over again. This gives me goosebumps. Best scene of Tyrion ever! Nothing can compare to this

  7. Season 8 Tyrion: Oh no, Daenerys is destroying King's Landing!
    Season 4 Tyrion: Oh no, Daenerys is destroying King's Landing! /s

    He should have been the one egging her on.

  8. What happened to the incredible writing of the early seasons of Game Of Thrones, I was more on edge during this scene than I was during the entire episode of The Long Night or any of season 8 for that matter. I would gladly watch stunning and thrilling dialogue like this over an undead army that really only kills those who aren’t important to the story anymore.


  10. This scene is incredible. Far better than in the book, imo. I am so glad both exist. If they only hadn't butchered the finale season. This show was a masterpiece.

  11. "Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores." I think that line speaks for all of us

  12. Fuck man, seeing this has reopened the wounds left behind by season 8. Why couldn't they just take the time they needed to finish this show? GRRM said they needed to do 5 more seasons. Why did they rush it and ruin everything? This show could've gone down as the best show in Television history, but instead, it will be remembered as "that show with the horribly written last season". Fuck you D&D 😭

  13. It's important to note Rains of Castamere playing during Tywin and Tirion staredown. And the realization that Tirion, after everything, is the one true roaring Lannister lion.

  14. Man this show ruined the Lannisters in Season 8. Tyrion became a foolish hand of the queen who wouldn't see Cercei or Dany's flaws until it was too late. Jaime went from a tortured character who really cared about the people to a simple villain who never really cared for the people after all. And Cercei just stood in windows sipping wine and doing nothing until Dany burned it all down

  15. The sad irony of this scene is that the reason he got so incensed is because even tho he was mostly ok with being a dwarf his most embarrassing moment was when his first love was a whore when the situation was completely contrived by Tywin and Jaime. That’s what set him off and what eventually caused him to kill Shae and Tywin

  16. I used to watch this almost everyday before s8. This is the first time im watching it after the finale.😭 Season 8 ruined everything.

  17. Tyrion had nothing to lose at this point, so he decided to go all in. That makes this the best part of his character (or any that is going through something like this) and it's hard to write a character back from this point and it's one of the reasons he wasn't as good in the later seasons.

  18. Tyrion is the Winston Smith of ‘Game of Thrones’; the two are products ultimately, unfortunately, defined by their associations. Tyrion is a Lannister by name and Winston is subject to the totalitarian / legalistic doctrine of the Party. However, both make a notable valiant attempt by which to disassociate themselves from their corrupt and wicked organisations and effectively redeem themselves.

  19. Meanwhile at a Poker table:
    Tyrion: Check !
    Oberyn: Check !
    Jaime: Check !
    Shae: Raise !
    Cersei: Call !
    Tywin: Call !
    Tyrion: ALL IN !!!
    Literally Everyone: 2:51

  20. I’m getting really fucking sick of all these whining about season 8 on every single got videos. It sucked yes but it’s over. There’s nothing anyone can fucking do about it. So please stfu already now.

  21. Stunning. A devastating performance from Peter. Wonderful, nuanced acting from the cast, superb editing. Underneath, subtly, Ramin's orchestration of 'The Rains of Castermere', swelling majestically to close the scene. As I said, stunning.
