    [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    Jaime and Brienne might have a brief fling but the endgame OTP (in the show at least) has been 'foreshadowed' ^This is the original scene, they kinda played it down in the final cut though. Didn't want to give it away so soon eh? Brienne looks unsure but it's just her playing hard to get. She's not used to being courted but will come to appreciate the attention. Edd knows what's up So unexpected, so unlikely, so lovely. In the books, yeah it's headed towards Jaime x Brienne as overused, generic star-crossed lovers/beauty and the beast theme.

    [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    You want him to be Jaime 'I not lurve u anymoar Cersi' Lannister but then complain when he doesn't care if she was with another man (if he knows and believes). Make up your mind. Do you want him to care, which would show he still has feelings for her, or not care? S6 Jaime makes sense. Every scene of his shows him drifting away from Cersei, doing things the way Cersei wouldn't want him to, having those moments with Brienne, trying to avoid bloodshed etc. Even his initial scene with Cersei (comforting her over Myrcella) is understandable. She's a grieving mother and he's a grieving father of the deceased. He'd have been a cruel dick to scorn her under those circumstances. It'd have been him taking a step backwards on his path to redemption. And that's not what the fans want right? Show Jaime needs more time and incentive to break away from Cersei, as their relationship has not been as simplistic as it's been in the books and show Cersei is not as evil and one-note as her book counterpart, @A spoon of knife and fork made a great case for s6's Jaime here. Generally speaking, it seems that some people who tend to (over)analyse every single paassage in ASOIAF, can't be bothered to scratch beyond the surface of GOT while they watch with one eye closed. Jaime says one thing and does the other? Wow so like a human tends to do. Fancy that. Characters lie to others ('I love Cersei with all my heart') to reach a goal, are in denial or not yet fully in tune with their feelings? How human of them. Why is it that people expect characters to be : robotic, infallible, omniscient, truthful (always) stagnant (and then complain about the seeming lack of character growth), always completely aware of what they feel/want, never changing their minds? That's being one-dimensional and not human-like. Anyway, it's not regarding Jaime but it's worth reminding that character development doesn't only have to be positive/redemptive. There can be a negative one too. See Mad King, Lady Stoneheart, Sansa or people's expectations for rezzed Jon (less forgiving/noble, ruthless etc) to name a few examples.

    [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    @Meera of Tarth A platonic relationship is one that lacks physical/sexual attraction. Basically 'just close friends'.

    They have beeing pretty adamant on showing just how much Jon resembles Ned. In looks, demeanor and even lines. http://i.imgur.com/JrZDqSv.jpg http://imgur.com/1vB5Ksg

    [Spoilers] EP610

    The production value of this show really is in league of its own. No other show can compete. Miguel Sapochnik and Ramin Djawadi are God-tier. They creat feasts for the eyes and ears.

    This is the trivial, basic stuff the viewer is required to figure out. You know time passes between scenes

    It's now the highest rated episode of any tv show ever on imdb. 10/10 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4283088/?ref_=ttep_ep9 well to be precise, it's tied with Ozymandias but has a higher number of votes. over 83K in 4 days compared to around 75K in a little over 1000 days for BB.

    ^Ghost went with them but due to time/budget constraints they couldn't include him https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.businessinsider.com/game-of-thrones-director-why-ghost-wasnt-in-battle-of-the-bastards-2016-6# People often forget about the limited time and budget they have when they whine about these or those characters being killed off/merged/not incuded. It costs nothing to write them on paper, it costs a lot to bring them to life on screen. Hence the showrunners have to compromise, have to cut things out.

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Not that I think including LSH anytime in the show would have been good but they include characters when they are needed. Why would they have introduced her at the end of season 3 only to have her barely do anything and then have her sit out two seasons?

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    yes Martin's resurrected characters come back worse for wear (some more some less, doubt Beric changed much after his first rezz)), which is why I don't understand show/book fans having expected Jon to come back as some self-assured, hardened, mission-oriented badass doing rousing speeches every firve minutes, and not a PTSD-riddled war veteran who has lost confidence and purpose. which is more realistic given what he went through and came back from (the black void of death). But I digress. Beric was disillusioned at coming back, so he could have simply ordered Thoros not to bring him back next time he was killed. Could have done that anytime after his first or second or third resurrection.

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    The whole concept of LSH is corny. Her looks, her behaviour (she don't speak but she remember lol), the way she was brought back, why she was brought back... yeah why was she? Maybe my memory is hazy but why did Beric do what he did for her specifically? Why didn't they pay her respect and give her a proper burial instead of jumping to the resurrection part? Why do BwB follow her? LSH is just a convenient plot device to have revenge plot in the Riverlands. I'd rather see other Starks (and/or their loyalists) take care of the Freys instead of that gimmicky zombie who's not even Catelyn but something else entirely considering Martin's view on resurrection.
