  1. Reeds might have a bigger role in the latter books, so they should be included. After all, they are the only representation of Howland Reed (or crannogmen in general) in all 5 books together. Howland definitely has a mighty role in the rest of the books, it's important his children feature in early so that the viewers are aware of Reeds when Howland appears...

    [Book Spoilers] EP 204 Discussion

    Joffrey's scene with the whores was truly unwarranted. It could have been a closed door event as reported to Tyrion by the injured whores. But the truth is, SEX SELLS! I know some people who don't have the patience to read the books and watch the show because it shows a lot of skin! Every time, they ask me if there was a sex scene in the new episode. We all, book lovers or otherwise, have to live with that. The nurse scene on the other hand, also engages the audience with romance. True, its misplaced, with her arguing with the king about the futility of war. But Jeyne-Robb story has true potential of a romance. If GRRM did not give us that, HBO will.

    The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    In the name of Daenerys Stormborn, the Mother of the Dragons, I, Stargareyen, The Free Rider challenge you, iamthedave, The Council Member, for a duel to defend my right to finish reading the novels! :box: But seriously, Jamie couldn't care less of Cersei's honor. She's been fucking Lancel and the Kettlebacks and Moon Boy for all he knows. The one who stands against Robert Strong needs be a Tyrell, since she has done her best to screw that family. Also, it needs to be a character who's not central to the plot. Duel it out lads, I will close my eyes and pretend it never happened... I don't agree with the concept of Robert Strong in the first place, why carry on the legend of Gregor, GRRM is too infatuated with him.

    If that turns out to be true, Jamie himself would not stand the combat by himself. And it would be too much of a ego problem to let Brienne fight for him. Frankly, I am bored of duels. There is no new way GRRM can entertain us with those.

    Why are you all so bent of procuring a single combat trial? UnCat never gave a proper trial to Podrick, Hyle and Brienne, she just resorted to hang them. It would be repetitive on GRRM's part to introduce combat trials again in UnCat's presence, specially after Tyrion went scot-free. Beric Dondarrion was another matter, but UnCat was a mother who has been wronged. Also, she is a woman and will handle the matter emotionally. Jamie and Brienne will probably set out on a quest to rescue Sansa from Eyrie, along with few BwB members maybe.

    The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    Agreed. I was just pointing out that the rest of the women are using their feminine traits to their advantage. Asha and Cersei use their sexuality as a weapon, Cersei and Cat strive to protect their children, Sansa's Cat-like looks keep her from harm from Littlefinger, Arya uses grace in her swordsmanship. But Brienne uses none of her feminine traits, she represents a certain section of women which none of the others can portray. Her character getting wiped off without achieving anything important would be a blow to such an audience. Brienne is too naive to be tricking Jamie to death. If she is getting Jamie, she believes he won't be killed, only questioned. I don't understand why he would meet his end at the hand of his siblings though.

    The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    Because she is a woman in a man's profession. She represents strong-willed and able-bodied women who don't give a damn about what others think of them. She crushes Jaime's pride and makes him respect her.

    The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    If there is one thing I understand about GRRM, he tries to stick to reality as much as possible. Why should all Stark children be turning into good adults? After all they are growing up in different circumstances. Even with Targereyens, Viserys was messed up in the mind because of the huge responsibility of reviving his line. WHy should Arya, who has met shady characters all the way, should turn all goody goody? Bran might not be corrupted, thanks to the high speed access to world wide weirwood. But Arya might end up causing suffering to her family, unknowingly. Guess we are moving adrift from the topic at hand, Jamie and Brienne. True, GRRM might have a grim ending after all, but he should as well do it in style. The Kingslayer definitely won't die unless his path crosses Dany, whose father he killed. She must get a first hand account of why he did it. Brienne is a character that appeals to feminists, she has to get her due as well.

    Cat already had a bad time allowing trial by combat for Tyrion at Eyrie. She won't repeat the mistake twice. And as such, her new form doesn't care much about justice, but more about revenge. Brienne would not lure Jamie for getting killed. They will explain the circumstances to Stoneheart and continue on their mission to find Sansa. Someone in the Brotherhood might have stumbled on information about Littlefinger and his bastard daughter. Cat will see through it and dispatch Jamie and Brienne to save her. I am certain there is something dark in store for Arya. All Stark children cannot turn out to be on good side. GRRM, as we know him, won't allow that. She will probably assassinate someone loved by the readers, only to find out later that she erred.

    The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    All of you are forgetting the prophecy made to Cersei which states 'her valanqor will kill her'. Cersei is certain it is Tyrion, but GRRM is sure to twist it as Jaime being the answer. If he still has that role left, he cannot be killed by Stoneheart. Jamie is already incensed by Cersei's lack of restraint with men, he barely needs a trigger to kill her (like all their children dying as said the prophecy) Passing on the kiss of life to Brienne is absurd, it was originally passed on because it was such a central character like Cat who has seen her honorable son and husband being murdered. Doing it twice would make it child's play.
