    Not even idiots claim it can't or doesn't ever happen in America. Rather, the most optimistic claim is that it happens so rarely it's not worth worrying about, and furthermore this will always...

    More spoiler:

    Perhaps if Tywin convinces Shae of all kinds of falsehoods about Tyrion, they can wind up in a place similar to that in the books. It still would take a LOT for Tyrion to kill Shae...

    Joffrey's younger brother Tommen is next in line. In the books he was REALLY young, but based on the last episode he's a young teenager or something in the show.
