    Discussing Jaime and Brienne

    Regarding possible pregnancies, I hate how the writers deal with sex in this show universe. It is supposed to resemble Middle ages. How come people have so much casual sex without getting married ? In the book canon, the good manners is to "marry the next day" if the sex happens out of the wedlock. On the show, people behave like in the 21. century, as if contraception was widely available and as if bastards had no stigma. Would Brienne really sleep with Jaime without getting married ? She drank a little, but she clearly knew what she was doing. She froze at some moments, but decided to continue. How does possible pregnancy go with her lifestyle and her determination to be Sansa's bodyguard "till the day she dies" ? (She said this to Blackfish back then.) Should not Jaime have the decency to marry Brienne before going on his suicidal mission to Kings Landing ? If she becomes pregnant, the child will be a bastard, Someone Snow, with a problematic social status.

    Discussing Jaime and Brienne

    I agree that the unborn baby complicates things. That way I think the intention to kill Cersei is not clear, but there is an intention to stop her somehow. And yes, the writing is very inconsistent regarding characters and there are alsi many gaps. That is why I expect a "surprise", something like Sansa and Arya seemed to be in conflict, but we suddenly find out they conspired together to get rid of Littlefinger.

    As a proof he hates leaving Brienne, you can watch the "Stay with me" scene. At one point, she is crying, and he closes his eyes to conceal he is crying as well.

    Continued: so this way, the Jaimes action make sense to me. However, I hate the script. I thing Jaime or D&D should not have humiliated Brienne this way. Research shows - I know it is absurd to insert research thoughts into this mess of bad writing, but anyway - that mourning the dead partner is less intense than mourning the partner that has betrayed and left you. He could have explained things to Brienne. She, of all people, should understand, when somebody is driven to do things due to honor or perceived obligation. He also could have persuaded her to stay where she is and not to follow him, because she still believes protecting Stark girls is her job. However, D&D wanted Jaime to surprise us, so they made his departure intentionally ambiguous and thus humiliating for Brienne.

    Discussing Jaime and Brienne

    I am pretty sure Jaime is going to kill Cersei. Or maybe, there is no precise plan to kill her, just a feeling of immense anger and an impulse to do whatever it takes to save the Kings landing from being burned due to irresponsibility of Cersei. And, in case of no fire, to prevent Cersei and Euron, the unworthy rulers to take the throne. He must be thinking, "Why the hell did I kill Aerys, only to be responsible for actions of my sister by supporting her in fighting Highgarden etc ? My life story makes no sense. I hate my sister" And he did not want Brienne to follow him and put herself in the harms way. I continue in the next post.
  7. Brienne to Jaime: "We have never had a conversation last this long without you insulting me. Not once!" Very weird ! 1. This is something roommates on Friends sitcom would say, rather than Brienne. Very out of character ! 2. Jaime had been quite respectful to Brienne on last 3 occasions before. Did I miss any insults ?
  8. My immmediate thought was they were poisoned. The association was the alleged poisoning of Napoleon by wallpaper in his room, which contained arsenic as an ingredient usual at the time. Than I realised tapestries are different than wallpaper. And why would they poison a public place like a throne room ? So, my immediate guess probably does not make sense, but, who knows ?

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

    @Newstar, just to make it clear, I am the shipper of the two. Although motivated by their parallel versions. But you are right, the "no no no" feelings have definitely been there during the "fuck loyalties" scene. Also during the Riverrun discussion. The waving on the boat was OK. The sex might still be OK, if the authors limit their conversation to minimum, for which the chances are reasonable.

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

    I see no sexual tension on the show either. I just want them to get tohether, because it improves the chances for their book counterparts to do the same. The book Brienne is described as looking much worse than the show version, but her behaviour and the thoughts we see are much more feminine. By the way, she would never say "fuck". If I may mention uncomfirmed spoilers about season 8 ...
