Then Powers shows it's effects on livestock: we don't get to see ''that'', but we get to see the reaction of ''sheer horror'' to whatever it did to the poor cow.

** PlayedForLaughs during Tyrion's OverlyLongGag dragging his chair around the table to face off with his father. The other councillors range from amused, bemused, outraged, or worried about Tywin's reaction, while Tywin himself just glares.
** During a mocking version of the "War of the Five Kings" with dwarfs, the view switches between the action and a polarized party. Joffrey, Tywin, Cersei, Tommen, Pycelle and the smallfolk find it amusing, while Tyrion, Sansa, Oberyn, Varys and the Tyrells are quietly disgusted or appalled by it. Loras dispenses with the pretension and leaves early on.
** When Joffrey starts abusing Tyrion during his wedding reception, the mood of the entire audience turns stiff and awkward, even including those who were amused by Joffrey's earlier cruel jokes. Tywin in particular is visibly enraged.
** During the TrialByCombat in the "The Mountain and the Viper" reaction shots are shown of Tyrion, Tywin, Cersei, Jaime, and Ellaria, all of whom have crucial stakes in the outcome.
** During Edmure's wedding, the Starks and Tullys are visibly surprised by how attractive Roslin Frey is.
