In Which We Gather Evidence To Prove Whether or Not Tryst Can Read

Flashback Episode Two

He then goes on to write "Signing Competeton" to indicate a Singing Competiton.

Episode One

Tryst tells Tamlin: So he’s a smuggler. He’s listing cargo that he's not holding and there’s extraneous numbers. To me, that spells code!


(Which he then goes on to break.) (Can this be done without "reading"?


Episode Six

Tryst: Well, I mean we could rescue a scientist, which would no doubt put all of our lives in danger, or we could try to decipher the documents that I stole.
Bacta: Oh yeah, right right right, because you have university level training in science and you’ll be able to understand those documents. No problem.
Leenik: I, I feel like...
Tryst: I mean, look, I’m not an idiot, I’m gonna be able to... I can re-...I can put two and two together. I mean, like you know, lizards-force stuff, I can read.
Bacta: All right. I'm going to enjoy watching you try and read those documents.

Episode Nine

Tryst reads "papers" that Lyn has gathered and spread out on the Mynock's kitchen table that describe the bounty on him.

After Leenik explains his ordering system for his books, Tryst says he knows how it works because he was using it.

Episode Seventeen

In Episode 17, Tryst begs Leenik to spell his fake name, Carrie Fisher, as K-E-R-R-Y to be gender specific.  A bit later, he commends Lyn for spelling Billie Dee Williams with an I-E.

Also, in Episode 17, Tryst hands Leenik a full inventory of the ship's contraband. 

Leenik: All of this is in the ship?
Tryst: Yes.  I had Tamlin inventory the ship.
Lyn: Tamlin is pretty advanced for his age.  He can read?
Leenik: Tony helped.
Tryst: I don’t know if he can read.  I just told him to do an inventory.
Bacta: I just assumed that’s how Zabraks were.
Tryst: He went and double checked everything.  It’s mostly matching shapes and colors.  I could read.  It would be so ridiculous if I couldn’t read.  I can read.
Leenik: No one is questioning it. Why would you say that unless you couldn’t read?  I’m just going to write something down.
Tryst: Then go ahead and mail it to your mom.
Leenik: I'm going to write down “Mynock.” What does that say?
Tryst: It says “Mynock.” You just said it out loud.
Leenik: I'm going to write down something else. What does that say?
Tryst: It says “something else.”  Stop saying it out loud.  Look, we don’t have time for this.  I can obviously read.
Leenik: All we know is that you can hear.

Episode Eighteen

Bacta: We don't even know if Tryst can read.
Leenik: I know Tryst can't read.
Tryst: Everybody has their opinion.
