Sexual Mysteries Part 3

            In episode # 3, season #3 of the TV show Game of Thrones; what did Podrick Payne do at Littlefinger’s whorehouse? This is a mystery.

For those who don’t know: Podrick had 3 prostitutes paid for by Tyrion Lannister. This is as a reward for two things. One, Podrick saved Tyrion’s life in the Battle of Blackwater Bay. Tyrion’s life was in danger from an assassin paid for by either his sister Cersei, his nephew Joffrey or both. Podrick saves Tyrion. Two, Podrick is now Tyrion’s squire [edit May 2014, this season the audience finds that Pod is more of a valet than squire] and serves him very faithfully.  Just about anything that Tyrion needs, Podrick makes sure to get it.

In this episode, Tyrion is picking up the crown’s financial books from Littlefinger. Since Littlefinger works out of his brothel, they are already there in the house of ill repute. Bronn and Tyrion leave Podrick there to have his manly needs taken care of by three of the finest “ladies” in the kingdom.

Podrick returns to Tyrion’s residence afterward with all the of the money that was supposed to be used to pay for the working girls. This is much to the surprise of Tyrion and Bronn. Both of whom have plenty of experience with working girls.

None of the 3 ladies of the evening could explain what he did. Or more explicitly, the ladies would not explain what happened. And ultimately, they did not charge him.

            Why?  Who knows?

            Tyrion and Bronn grill Podrick about it. No real answers come from it. The actual conversation is cut out of the show. So the audience is not privy to what is discussed.

            Later in the next episode, Lord Varys and Ros discuss this as well. All Ros can say is that the 3 “ladies” say it was the best they have ever had. Why? No explanation. What happened? No idea. These ladies who usually are very ready to share are sudden really tight lipped.

No one actually has the formula for what actually happened. No one knows what Podrick did. I am sure that it will NOT come out in the TV episodes. Maybe it is in the books but I am not reading the books. I have no intention to do so either.  

Pros that will neither take money nor discuss the details of an encounter?!? This is very odd. I am not sure why this is.

Other than to make the TV crowd crazy. Creating another mystery for me.

This will be another mystery that will cause ME much consternation. I will wonder. Hope to find out. Only to be thwarted.


Only answer comes in his proper title : Pod the Sex God !!!!

That part is not in the books at all. That part is made up for TV. Unsure why, but I'm guessing some more "games" between Littlefinger and the Lannisters (spying, paying for information etc.). It should seem suspicious to Tyrion that the whores aren't talking, and you'd have to suspect Littlefinger, but Tyrion doesn't question it. That's very unlike him in the books at least...he's uber suspicious in the books, and less so in the TV series.
