Redditornoted that Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) has had zero cups of wine so far this season. Remember, this is guy who once said, “I drink and I know things.” Clearly, right now, he is not drinking and he does not know the things.
So far, Tyrion’s strategy has lost them their allies from Dorne, Highgarden, and the Iron Islands; stranded the Unsullied in a cleaned-out Casterly Rock; and allowed his family to ransack the Tyrell fortune to pay back the Iron Bank. It was Daenerys’ idea to fly her dragon into combat and torch the Lannister army to smithereens.
