In all of the trailers we’ve seen for season 4 of Game of Thrones, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) appears to be having a pretty tough time. He’s locked up, in handcuffs, and complaining about a lack of justice. What on Earth is going on?

“Well, to anyone who has read the books, we stick fairly closely to that plotline, and those reversals of fortune really send him down the rabbit hole,” Peter tells Entertainment Weekly. “What’s interesting about this character is how much he changes [this season]. It’s remarkable ... He really ends up in a different place than he thought he was going to. It’s fueled a bit by anger towards his family, and trying to find his place in the world ... He sobers up in many ways. And love is in his life [with Shae], and that causes a tremendous amount of damage — because he’s vulnerable and he doesn’t like to be vulnerable.”

Yikes. It doesn’t sound to us like Tyrion’s going to have a very good time next season!

It’s not all terrible for Tyrion though, as Peter divulges that the youngest Lannister gets to spend some time with his older brother, with whom he hasn’t spoken to since Season 1. “If you’re raised together, you have an unspoken dialogue many times, and it’s very easy, especially between Jaime and Tyrion,” the actor says. “They have a real friendship, a good brotherhood. They look after each other. So, it’s been great to get back into that. We have quite a few scenes together this year so it’s been nice.”

So the two good Lannisters reunite this season, at least we have that to look forward to!
