Jon - A Clash of Kings
In which Jon Snow takes an enemy captive, and immediately proceeds to listen to one of her folk tales and see things from her perspective
"You know nothing, Jon Snow" isn’t just a funny meme about Jon being stupid. It’s Ygritte telling him he doesn’t know things, and Jon caring enough to learn, and to incorporate what he learns into his worldview. Jon’s one of the few men in Westeros to consider what a woman would think/do before he makes decisions. This happens all throughout his chapters in ADWD, where he talks to her in his head. "They know nothing, Ygritte. And worse, they will not learn."
And did she have a choice, anyway? If Cersei wants something, if Tywin wants something, she’s a woman without family, she’s on her own. She didn’t have a real choice to say, “No, I’m not going to this trial.” It was revenge, but it was also blackmail and coercion. […] Cersei or Tywin would’ve said, “We found you. You have no choice. Testify or die.”
[…] she didn’t have any choice after the trial scene. The people hated Tyrion after the trial, and she had been with him. Who could she be with after that? There was one choice. She had to choose the most powerful man in King’s Landing. And who is that? It’s Tywin. If she wants to stay alive, she has to take that step. In the end, she thinks Tywin is in the room, and she says “My Lion.” That expression was for Tyrion only. He was her lion. But because she’s a prostitute again, she’s lost all hope for a regular life, she’s trying to get rid of everything that reminds her of Tyrion — to make nothing special of what they had.
Sibel Kekilli, discussing Shae for an interview with TVLine
Tyrion pulled the draperies aside and there she was, turning toward him with a sleepy smile on her lips. It died when she saw him. She pulled the blankets up to her chin, as if that would protect her.
“Were you expecting someone taller, sweetling?”
Big wet tears filled her eyes. “I never meant those things I said, the queen made me. Please. Your father frightens me so.”
