Tywin really is a character that begs for screen time. A lot of characters have scenes from the book missing but he has whole sections added to go with the fact that I dont think a single book conversation he had has been left out of the show. And every scenes hes in is a highlight.
Id watch an entire episode on him sonning people, sternly explaining why his family isnt worthy of his name, and scribbling on a scroll while someone "important" waits for him to finish.
He deserves the same emmy the Imp got for season 1.
Im still waiting on the Martells. I expect them to be Lannister good. Doran and the Red Viper at least. I expect them to milk him a bit more than was done in the books. He has some good conversations with Tyrion. And Doran is pretty much undercover patient Tywin.
I'm not sure why they are making him more sympathetic? Stay strong man, keep hating him lol.
the thing that's great about Game of Thrones is that it's very rarely black and white. there are alot of shades of grey. characters that you may hate will get some sympathy once their story or point of view is told. characters that are supposed to be "good guys" pull such stupid shit that you hate them for fukkin shit up.
