Recent Events

A Dance with Dragons

When Tyrion Lannister, Penny and Jorah Mormont are purchased by Yezzan for his grotesquerie, Nurse is put in charge of his master's new property, instructing them on the rules, disciplining them when necessary, and informing them they should treat Yezzan as if he were their own father.

Nurse eventually succumbs to the Pale Mare. However, Tyrion is implied to have been the ultimate cause of Nurse's death via poisoning. When Nurse falls ill, it falls to Tyrion to act as his caretaker. Tyrion prepares a soup of dogtail "with slivers of mushroom in the broth,"[1] a detail reminding the reader that Tyrion still has poisonous mushrooms concealed in his boot. Adding to the suspicious circumstances surrounding the overseer's death, Nurse's last word is "No," while Tyrion's last words to Nurse are "A Lannister always pays his debts."[1]
