Come on people, you illiterate ones who don’t read the book. She NEVER loved him. She was a whore. She went where the money went. There was not one part of her that was redeemable. For Martin to say otherwise makes him a liar about his own books. Glad she’s dead. I waited all season for it!

of course she love him, but she felt unwanted when he told her she have to go without explanation ( he want it to protect her) . And love become hate is the equation of live marriage- divorce

I think they gave her the same fate as Shae of the books and which is the opposite of the build up of Shae and Tyrions love.Also The knife scene was to make Tyrion a hero as he had to kill her in self defense.I thought they did wrong and should have had Tyrion kill her as a murderer and not self defense.

They messed up the scene as the TV shae wouldn’t grab a knife to kill him and her character acted out of her character.

Ahhh ok it all makes sense now. The book made it plain that she was just using Tyrion while it was convenient, and then when it no longer was, she handed him his ass. HBO tried to make it into more than it was, but the major plot points of the book had to be followed, so what resulted was a confusion of HBO’s lust for drama tangled with GRRM’s writing style, which is far less lovey dovey. So, you end up with a Shae that really genuinely loves Tyrion and yet ends up as the heartless Shae from the books in the end, as the two storywriting ideals struggle (and fail) to find balance with each other. It would be sort of like a modern painter redoing the Mona Lisa to make her more attractive for a fashion magazine. The end result is something that can only struggle to make sense. I do think that HBO has done a great job in general, but sometimes…

She loved him in the show, but she was too foolish to see that he was pushing her away because he loved her too. The court “confession” was done out of spite, because she thought Tyrion threw her away. After that, she probably figured she might as well make some money.

Don’t think she loved him at all, the epitome of a gold digger. A dead gold digger! Good for Tyrion.

I disagree I don’t think she ever loved him if she did, she would not have been found in his father’s bed!

if she never loved him why did she not listen when she told him to leave even when he told her she would live a very comfortable life?
