Did the Cat's paw dagger belong to Tyrion?

In 1.05 The Lion and the Wolf, Tyrion asks Cat and Ser Rodrick, and anyone around, "What sort of imbecile arms an assassin with his own blade?".

That makes it sound like Tyrion did own it, so did he actually bet against Jaime in the tourney?  I guess they just half-assed ret-conned it in the TV series?


  • I'm not sure who far you are in the series, but they do cover this sort of in the show later on.

    I'm up to 7.7, so I know it's supposedly Carcetti's in the end, but why would Tyrion say it was his?

    It seems like they changed the direction of that plotline.

    Tyrion was posing a rhetorical question to highlight the absurdity of arming an assassin with your own weapon. By avoiding bringing Littlefinger into the conversation, I suppose the writers might be trying to obfuscate Littlefinger's villainy at this point to make his betrayal of Ned later more surprising.

    Tyrion would never bet against Jaime, but the viewers would not know that this early in the series.
