If you’re wondering why did Shae betray Tyrion, it might seem like an impossible question. The answer may lie in the details of the episode, but the main story line is fairly clear. After all, a betrayed person isn’t a good candidate to be the next King in the North. It’s easy to see why she wouldn’t want to betray Tyrion, but what really happened?
The first thing to consider is her history. As a Westerosi, Shae was once a gang-raped prostitute who attached herself to the Lannister army. She was attracted to Tyrion by his striking good looks, but she had been sold for her body since childhood. In her earlier life, Shae was a prostitute who didn’t care about others. Her desire to be in a better life eventually caught the attention of Tyrion. Although she was a lowborn Westerosi, she had a history of abuse, and he wished to change that.
In the end, the reason for Shae’s betrayal was Tywin’s ploy to protect himself and his family. Tywin’s ploy to protect Tyrion’s family sucked him into the war, forcing Shae to lie about her true intentions. And while the episode was a huge success, it still raised many questions that remain unanswered.
In the TV version, Shae tries to defend herself by using a fruit knife. When Tyrion gets close to her, he quickly rushes to her room, where she struggles with him over the fruit knife. When she finally gives up, Tyrion strangles her with his gold chain. This is the same reaction as when she kills Tywin. But Shae has a very different response.
Tyrion’s betrayal is a complex and complicated issue, and some fans are skeptical of his motivation. The conflicted character of Tyrion has gotten him a bit muddled over the years. He lost his family’s trust and closeness to his family and was duped by his love interest. Despite this, he persists in his quest and joins forces with his best friend, Daenerys Targaryen.
In the end, we do not know for sure if Tyrion betrayed Shae or not. It isn’t clear if Shae did it out of love for Tyrion, but she’s clearly not expecting to live when Cersei learns about it. While we can speculate, we should remember that Tyrion is already facing justice for his murder of his father. It’s possible that he might face justice for patricide if his father was guilty of murdering his son.
The television series also altered Shae’s background. Originally, the character was from the Free Cities, but the story was changed to give her a German accent. In Season 2, the story shifted to Lorath, the smallest Free City east of Braavos. Jaqen H’ghar, Shae’s father, is played by a German actor.
