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

    OH BOY Are you really pulling the sexist card on me ?! The entire point of Brienne's arc is to show her that her ideals (knighthood, vows, etc...) aren't exactly what she imagined and that things she deemed impossible (being a lady AND a knight) might actually become true. Saying Brienne is only about being a knight is just as false as saying she is only meant to be a lady. What is so fascinating about her character is that she wants to be and is BOTH. I don't see why having *gasp* a romantic relationship with someone who respects her as BOTH would prevent her from pursuing her chivalric ideals. I cannot stress this enough : she wants to be a lady as much as she wants ti be a knight, but she's always felt that these two elements were mutually exclusive, and since she would never be good at the former, she went for the latter. Because she had little choice : try and be a knight or be married to someone who doesn't even respect you and could abuse you whenever they felt like it. However we know someone who would actually let her be herself and actually appreciated her for who she is, and that is Jaime fucking Lannister. Does it mean that she'll end up with ten kids and a small cottage by the sea ? Probably not. It only means that Brienne is much more than Sansa's killing machine.

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

    1) She midly reacted to stuff . At best .Compared to her having her own character arc in which we learn more about her past, her personality, and her desires (which include a romantic relationship, a wish to live up to her father's expectations, etc...), it's a bit lacking, to say the least. 2) I meant in the books. They've turned her into a bully in the show, not arguing over that. 3) Again, Brienne is a highborn lady, and the sole heir of her house, and ending up as a glorified bodyguard would be a satisfactory end ? It is not. So, you have the books (and the author) explicitely telling you that Jaime abandoned Cersei to follow Brienne, that they are "effectively estranged", yet the related subplot is about his devotion to Cersei ?? Where did you get that from ? His last thought about Cersei is "Well guess I gotta go see her unless she's already dead meh" , and I'm barely exaggerating. The Ds cut the LSH storyline because they're not interested in Jaime, Brienne or Catelyn as characters, but have a huge hard-on for Cersei. So what do they do ? They assign both Jaime and Brienne as props for three seasons until they really have no choice but to have them reunite, probably because of GRRM's endgame.

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

    Yeah but that's because show Brienne is , like most of the characters on this show, a shell with little inner life. The only time I actually believe she is a person is when she interacts with Jaime (and the occasional good scene with Pod), and even that pales in comparison to the books. She is not 'happy' serving Sansa, she's just a glorified bodyguard who isn't supposed to have an inner life. Funnily enough, Jaime has basically gotten the same treatment throughout seasons 4-7 (last scene excluded). There is an emphasis (in the books, but in the show as well) on Brienne being the sole heir to her house, on her betrothals and marriage in general, and one could argue on her motherly side through her relationship with Pod. She is an independant, important character whose fate isn't serving a teenage girl until she dies.I hope the show tries to somewhat fix that for the last season.

    Well, yeah, he's a slow writer, we all knew that. I'm more worried about his motivation than anything else, to be honest. If he is just a procrastinator and a perfectionnist, then by all means let him take his time. However, if he is starting to lose interest in the series, we're basically done for.

    I agree; although to be fair he did not have the show (nor the fame that comes with it) prior to ADWD. The show seems to have taken a huge chunk of his time.

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

    Let's hope so ;It's now or never, though his change of heart should have started long ago. I hear he doesn't make it to KL nor is he in RR for episode 10, so chances are he meets up with Brienne again (or is about to).

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

    What bothers me a lot is that they all go all the way and straight out blurt the L word, but at the same time aren't setting up anything between the two ? Do they intend to or do they feel like saying "they love each other but they'd never act on it" seals the deal ? Is that it ? Are they ever going to see each other again ?

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Ha, I like him. Is it me or does he look like Show Euron's long-lost twin ?

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Oh, I'd thought about that, but dismissed it because they're not friends...but as you say, they seem to have rather peculiar definition of friendship, so that might be it. Now, would she be her foe because she eventually sides with Jaime ?

    Also, now that we know that Brienne is meeting Jaime next episode, the "old friend turned foe" from 6x10 might just be LS.

    Pretty sure this one is Bronn being playful. No idea about the rest though.

    Well she has to meet with the BF as well...

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    I'd bet good money that the BF and Arya share the LS role. BF on the Jaime/Brienne front, Arya for the RW 2.0

    Yes, it can indeed. Didn't mean to say it wouldn't, just that it wouldn't apply to whom it should. That said, might be we'll have that Kingslaying flashback. Fingers crossed.
