Here's why 'Game of Thrones' Night King should be scared of Tyrion Lannister
Will Tyrion Lannister pull off the biggest strategy of his life this season by riding one of those dragons?
With the final season of 'Game of Thrones' practically knocking at the Wall, most of us are thinking the same thing. How on earth will Jon Snow, the badass half Targareyan half Stark boy win this war with the Night King and his army of the dead without killing himself? But, what may not have occurred to you is that there's a possibility that it isn't Snow that the ice prick must be scared of. It is possibly a much smaller human being, someone with brains that no one in Westeros has.
Tyrion Lannister is currently the Hand of the Queen and is serving the mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen. He used to be one of the most loathed people back in Westeros in the first couple of seasons but as time progressed, he realized that he was much better elsewhere. So he packed up his wine and pulled up his pants, killed his toxic father and left to look for the dragon queen in a tiny ship — and when he did, he did quite excellently for himself. Tyrion has a tendency to make some of the smartest moves in this battle of the thrones and one of that is the biggest reason why this Night King should be scared of the little imp.
He tends to blindside his enemies every single time he's stepped into battle. Be it sidetracking his sis or the murder of the most powerful man in the country, Tyrion has the experience and diplomacy to pull it off. He isn't like Cersei, who thinks that there's a possibility that she can rule after everyone's literally dead and neither is he like Snow, who goes into battle and takes calls with his feelings. He knows history and current events, and his journey through Essos gave him a chance to travel the world. He drinks and he knows things, literally.
One of the reasons why we think Tyrion Lannister is a huge threat is because of the way the Battle of Blackwater Bay turned out. Literally, everyone was fighting with a damn sword and there he was way ahead of his (or Cersei's) time blowing up ships with wildfire. He even survived not just crazy queen Lysa Arryn's trial just relying on his ability to strategize. As far as we know, the only strategy that the Night King has pulled has been the possible coup to get Viserion.
There's another reason why Tyrion could possibly be the Night King's worst nightmare — he could be the one to ride him after all. Throughout the show, Tyrion has been hinted to be more than just a Lannister. His dad never missed an opportunity to remind him that he has raised him as his son — which if you think about it, is pretty strange for a parent to say. He, like Jon, could very well be related to Daenerys and be destined to take care of him.
Think about it — Viserion is the smallest of them all, the least aggressive and was the smartest and named after Khaleesi's younger bro — remind you of someone else?
