Jamie's dead

Recommended Posts

I might be getting my episodes confused, but wasn't this the one where we start with Jamie and Bronn lying by the side of a lake?

Sorry, but anyone who's gone involuntarily diving in a lake will tell you, you don't just *swim* out of a lake that easily. Even with clothes on, it's tough to tread water and one of the first things they teach you in Boy Scouts, even is to kick off your shoes and take off your clothes.

Jamie did a body slam into some very deep water, apparently. When the show starts, he's laying on the opposite side of the lake from where the battle was fought. Either A) he swam... which is impossible to do when weighted down with that much armor. Or B) Bronn rescued him... which is equally impossible to do to another person wearing that much weight, plus the weight of his own armor.

Anyhow, Jamie is dead. There is no reasonable way to assume he would have survived that plunge he took at the end of the episode. If they wanted to show a situation he could survive, they shouldn't have angled the camera 10+ feet below the waterline, looking up at him sinking.

His survival is just another "jump the shark" moment this series has taken since season 5, imo.
