Tyrion gets busted out of prison and, for reasons that make no sense to anyone who hasn't read the books, decides to pay a visit to his dear old dad, Tywin. When he finds Shae in Tywin's bed, he snaps and strangles her before killing his dad in the middle of some good old post-coital defecation. Tyrion had plenty of reasons to be angry, but he always rose above senseless violence. Who on Earth, aside from all those smug book reading nerds, could have predicted that he would turn into a cold-blooded killer?
Tywin's official title was Hand of the King, and as the LA Times pointed out, there was a season long "motif of hands in distress." A random Lannister was stabbed in the hand ...
And a non-random Lannister had his hand chopped off.
... Theon bit his sister's hand, because this franchise has precisely zero healthy familial relationships ...
Though not quite as unsettling as what she let him do with his hand.
... and Davos showed off his mutilated fingers.
But the spookiest part is an off-hand (ahem) remark made by Littlefinger, Lord of Ephebophilia and Wandering Accents. After the snotty Lord Arryn expresses his fears about leaving his fortress, Littlefinger unhelpfully reminds him of the many ways he could die in his own home. "People die at their dinner tables, they die in their beds, they die squatting over their chamber pots."
Well, Joffrey died at his wedding feast ...
Ending yet another royal marriage between Natalie Dormer and a homicidal king.
... Shae died in bed...
Which is why you always practice autoerotic asphyxiation with a spotter.
... and Tywin died in the middle of the most dignified shit ever, because Charles Dance can make anything look badass.
His colonoscopy footage looks better than your wedding photos.
Littlefinger appears to just be listing random examples, but he's actually counting off the season's biggest deaths in chronological order. So either the writers really like dramatic irony, or the next big plot twist is that Littlefinger is a Scanner.
