Tyrion Lannister of GOT Played In A Punk Band Called ‘Whizzy’

Peter Dinklage is a talented man. He has done an amazing job as Tyrion Lannister, sometimes also called the Imp or Dwarf of Casterly Rock in Game of Thrones. Dinklage has had other gigs as an actor but wait a minute. He used to front a punk-funk-rap band in 1990s. Yes, our Tyrion Lannister of GOT played in a punk band called ‘Whizzy’ in New York City in 1990s.

But it wasn’t all fun for Dinklage. He had some rough moments. He got some scars while performing for Whizzy in 1994.

Said Peter Dinklage in an interview, “We played a show at CBGB, and I was jumping around onstage and got accidentally kneed in the temple. I was like Sid Vicious, just bleeding all over the stage. Blood was going everywhere. I just grabbed a dirty bar napkin and dabbed my head and went on with the show.”

Seems like they were quite reckless about their safety. In Peter Dinklage’s own words, “We didn’t care much at the time about personal safety. We were smoking and drinking during our shows, and one time my bass player fell off the back of his amp because he passed out. It was one of those bands.

That seemed like a lot of fun. I didn’t find any footage of whizzy on YouTube but this video gives us some idea about how Dinklage would have sounded like when he used to perform for Whizzy.

Is Tyrion Jealous of Jon Snow?

Last Sunday’s Game of Thrones Season Finale was epic. There were so many important moments. One of them was Brandon Stark narrating the scene of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen’s marriage and the fact that Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, not Ned Stark’s bastard. As that scene unfolded we saw Jon and Daenerys finally making out and Tyrion standing outside Daenerys’s cabin looking all upset. Why did he react that way? Is Tyrion Jealous? Or is he sad?

Tyrion Reacting to Jon and Daenerys Having Sex

Tyrion did not look happy when he saw Jon Snow walking into the cabin of Daenerys. He is an intelligent man and he knew that Jon has had a crush on Daenerys since Jon arrived at Dragonstone. But he did not anticipate Jon bending the knee to Daenerys and to make matters worse, Daenerys not telling her own hand about it. Tyrion comes to know about Jon’s pledge to serve Daenerys as his queen at Dragonpit for the first time straight from Jon Snow, not from the queen he serves. That perhaps made him feel left out and small.

Tyrion can see how Daenerys has started relying on Jon Snow. She even asked Jon for advice when she heard the news about Lannisters taking over Highgarden. At that time she was quite mad at Tyrion as his advice to stand down cost her Dorne, Iron Islands and Highgarden. Now with Jon pledging alliance as King in the North to Daenerys, and Daenerys and Jon hooking up, it complicates matters for Tyrion even further.

When Tyrion Finds Out That Cersei is Pregnant

Tyrion may have made some kind of a deal with Cersei to make her commit to a truce. May be he told Cersei that her unborn child can be named as Daenerys’s successor. We have seen Tyrion talking to Daenerys about choosing a successor to Daenerys in Beyond the Wall. Even though Tyrion thinks that Daenerys can’t have children and Jon Snow and Daenerys having sex won’t change that in his opinion. But he is worried that Daenerys won’t agree to Tyrion’s suggestion of naming Cersei’s child as her successor, especially if Jon Snow and Daenerys get married. That would make Jon Snow a successor after Daenerys. Remember, no one except Brandon Stark and Samwell Tarly know about the fact that Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, the true heir to the Iron Throne.

Does Tyrion Love Daenerys?

Tyrion may also have some feelings for Daenerys. He definitely respects her. According to Jeremy Pedeswa, Director of Game of Thrones Finale, in an interview, “Everyone seems to be in love with Dany, in a way, and I think Tyrion’s a little bit in love with her. But I don’t think it’s an actual romantic love. There’s a huge respect for her. And maybe there’s a slight romantic element to that. But it’s more of a jockeying in terms of who has real power. Not over Dany, but who has power in a relationship with Dany. With Tyrion, it’s all about who is going to have sway over her?



So is Tyrion jealous? Yes, there is some jealousy and some love. But, most likely, Tyrion is worried about losing influence over Daenerys as she gets more and more close to Jon.

Anatomy of The Frozen Lake Battle- Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 featured ‘The Frozen Lake Battle’ where a group of twelve people go for a hunt of a dead wight far north beyond the wall.



The crew discusses the making of this amazing sequence.

The Frozen Lake Battle

Says D. B. Weiss, “It was a real back and forth about who would be on this mission, who wouldn’t be on this missionThe Dirty Dozen obviously came to mind. Everybody has a good reason to hate everybody else.” We see Jon Snow, Tormund Giantsbane, Jorah Mormont, Gendry, Thoros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion, The Hound and five other wildings go on this suicide mission to rescue a dead wight to show to Cersei that the threat is real.

Suicide Squad

Some of the sequence was shot in Iceland. The crew worked in cold conditions as hell. Most of the heavy-lifting of the sequence, was in Wolf Hill Quarry in Belfast. The crew had a very hard time trying to work out what a frozen lake looks like, and how they can achieve that. And that went from compacted quarry floor to putting concrete down, to nice, flat finish, and then there had to be hues of color that were added to that. Then they had to work out how the ice would look, trying to make that look three-dimensional, and as if it was transparent ice. They worked hard to make the frozen lake look real.

Says Kit Harrington, “I think there’s a sort of kick-bollocks scrambleness to filming out here where you, you have such limited daylight. And you have conditions which are like this or worse. It just gives it a sense of reality, you know.”

Remarks Emilia Clarke, “You know, the harder the challenge, the more I relish it. But this really, you’re like, “Can I just even maybe have, like, a screen with, like, clouds or something?” I’ve never flown on a dragon! And to just harness that power. I mean, can you even imagine?

In this sequence we got to see a wight polar bear, a dragon dying, hundreds and thousands of wights fighting with the Suicide Squad. I would say that the crew did an amazing job in filming this sequence.

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 Top Moments

There were some key moments that can be called as Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 top moments. I couldn’t take my eyes off from my TV for even a single second. It was simply fantastic.



Meeting of Ice & Fire – Jon Snow Meets Daenerys Stormborn – The Most Awaited Moment on Game of Thrones

According to David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the spine of the episode is about the first meeting of Ice and Fire – Jon Snow and Daenerys Stormborn.

Jon Snow doesn’t have much idea about what Daenerys has gone through. Jon refuses to bend his knee to the Mother of Dragons as he probably he sees a rich girl with a fancy name sitting in a big chair with a fancy dress on proclaiming herself as the queen of the world. He doesn’t have much respect for her perhaps at this moment. He didn’t come to Dragonstone to join her in her fight against Cersei. None of that matters for him at this point. All that matters is fighting the dead.

According to Weiss, she looks at him and she thinks that he is some unwashed barbarian from the north, and he is a bastard and yet he’s calling himself king. If she perhaps knew what he’d seen she’d be looking very very differently at what he’s telling her. But at this point in time, she only sees Jon as someone who’s trying to carve up her piece of her kingdom for himself. And Dany is thinking that if what this guy is saying is true, then it really is an issue.  But Dany has her own very serious issues to deal with in the shape of the woman who’s now sitting on the throne. Cersei is a murderous vicious woman, capable of insane amounts of brutality without a second thought if she feels like it’s what needs to be done.

After Tyrion’s advice, Dany agrees to have Jon mine the dragonglass. That is the first step from her side to make Jon an ally and to show good faith.



The Battle of Casterly Rock – One of Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 Top Moments

According to David Benioff and Weiss, everyone realizes the two pulls of power for Cersei and Jaime at this point are Kings Landing and Casterly Rock. But Jaime also knows that he doesn’t have the forces to defend both. So he makes the strategic decision to give up Casterly Rock, to use it as a decoy, to lure the Unsullied over there to take it and to get them on the exact wrong side of the continent. The siege of Casterly Rock is so much about what doesn’t happen, how it goes contrary to expectations, so in order for us to understand that it doesn’t play out the way Tyrion expects it to, you really need to hear Tyrion’s expectations.

Jaime goes after the Highgarden, which is for him much more valuable because of Highgarden’s Tyrell’s stronghold, which commands almost all the fertile regions of Westeros. They are the wealthiest house but fighting isn’t really their forte.

Death Scene of Olenna Tyrell – One of Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 Top Moments

Jaime thinks that he finally got to turn the tables on someone. But Olena still wins the scene. The one thing that she does have left to live for is the thing she saves for the very end of the scene. The piece of information that she’s been sitting on since season four. She beats him in the middle of her own death scene, and there’s nothing he can do about it. He knows that its true the moment she says it, “Tell Cersei I wanted to her to know that it was me”. She admits to Jaime that he killed his and Cersei’s son, King Joffrey, on his wedding day with Margaery Tyrell.

Brandon Stark Comes Back to Winterfell And Unites With Sansa Stark

Brandon Stark is finally at his home in Winterfell. But at this point, he is more worried about fighting the Night King. He wants to tell Jon Snow about the truth behind him being half Targaryen and half Stark. This is really important because it’s highly likely that Jon Snow will be riding one of the dragons, possibly Rhaegal in season 8 in the battle against the army of the dead.

Jorah Mormont’s Greyscale Gets Cured – Another One of The Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 Top Moments

Jorah’s greyscale is cured at the moment by Samwell Tarly and he is off to fight alongside Daenerys. This is a defining moment as Samwell Tarly has discovered a way to provide treatment for greyscale to patients who are not young and whose disease is advanced. Archmaester Marwyn is pleased with Sam and has tasked Sam with organizing manuscripts which will ultimately become the book called ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’.
