We seem to be discussing the big questions of the series atm, so why not this one?
I am sure you guys remember Tysha and Tyrions tragic story.
And i am sure we all noticed arya, sam and the mysterious sailors wife in braavos
The weddings were loud and jolly, with a lot of drinking. Whenever Cat happened by with her barrow, the Sailor’s Wife would insist that her new husband buy some oysters, to stiffen him for the consummation. She was good that way, and quick to laugh as well, but Cat thought there was something sad about her too.
The other whores said that the Sailor’s Wife visited the Isle of the Gods on the days when her flower was in bloom, and knew all the gods who lived there, even the ones that Braavos had forgotten. They said she went to pray for her first husband, her true husband, who had been lost at sea when she was a girl no older than Lanna. “She thinks that if she finds the right god, maybe he will send the winds and blow her old love back to her,” said one-eyed Yna, who had known her longest, “but I pray it never happens. Her love is dead, I could taste that in her blood. If he ever should come back to her, it will be a corpse.”
A daughter called Lanna...cmon george, do you want to be any more specific. Hence the theory that the sailors wife is tysha. This makes some sense, but why lost at sea? Tyrion has never been to sea, whats more she knew exactly where he was. But the lanna hint is too obvious a reference to lannister. Yet there is another lannister who everyone forgets. Gerion, the youngest brother of tywin. Went to sea in search of brightroar the valyrian blade lost by the lannisters, and his path would have led him right to braavos. I think the sailors wife is gerions mistress, and i think tyrion is going to find brightroar bring it back to westeros and become head of the lannisters...I believe we will never actually see tysha, sad, but i can't see any other people we have met so far, fitting the bill.
What do you guys think?
