Um... ImI'm pretty sure Tywin had little to do with the preparation of the trial beyond acting as a Judge. All of the witnesses were under Cersie's EmployCersei's employ, including Shae, be it forced or not. Why would Tywin deny Shae from being a witness if he didn't know she was a whore at the time? (which he didn't). Tywin had no "plan". He was always going to give Tyrion the option to join the nights watchNight's Watch even before JamieJaime argued with him. He just took advantage of the situation as the opportunity arisedarose and made a deal with JamieJaime, offering conditions that he was intending on doing anyway.

Tywin may despise Tyrion, but he will still not let his own family blood spill if he can avoid it.
