4.6. What was the kindness Jaime never did for Tyrion?

Despite the disasterous way in which Tyrion’s marriage to Tysha ended, Tyrion has always believed that Jaime procured her and set the scene of her being chased by brigands as a kindness to him, and he loved his elder brother because of that.  However, Jaime tells him, "She [Tysha] was no whore. I never bought her for you. That was a lie Father commanded me to tell." (III: 873)
