Shes too freakin big, seriously, like a giant, whats going to happen when she has her fight with Jaime? shes going to make him look like Tyrion
Her fight with Jaime is going to be perfect
. In the books, she's described as the same height/shape as him, and during their fight in the creek, he realizes "she's stronger than I am." He's weakened from being held captive and is fighting in irons, but they still give it a good go!

I think all they could do with Gwen was to make her homely.
But it was Brienne physicality and prowess that made men (I guess women too) deride her, she shoulders her psychological burden well. In fact it's heart breaking.
Catlyn deliberately refers to her as "an ugly woman." I was thinking they'd at least put some false teeth in Gwen's mouth to make them more like Brienne's are described, but in the end, it won't matter. People who haven't read the books immediately got the point - Brienne is a freakishly large, powerful woman
, and there will be plenty more scenes where we see characters reacting negatively to her.
I expect there will be some zingers from Jaime when he first sees her. Which we didn't get to hear in the book.
