Ser Dips A lot

Barristan Selmy vs. Jaime Lannister

Recommended Posts

In a situation where King Robert actually figured out the deal with his children being born of incest, how would this situation resolve? The lannisters would undergo some form of trial most likely. Say it's a trial by combat and Jaime defends his Cersei obviously, I'm assuming he'd come before the Mountain or the hound get their nod. King Robert would be advised to pick Ser Barristan but would he. Who wins between an old Barristan and a two-handed Jaime?

Or if King Robert decides to defend his own honor? is he too washed up at this point of his life????

Ah but what if Jaime isn't on the Kingsguard to defend Cersei? What if Robert decides that he can't have a traitor on the Kings Guard and removes him?  Certainly, Jaime can defend himself but he cannot defend Cersei.  Also wouldn't one feel that surely the King takes precedence, he gets first pick as it were, so then Selmy goes up against a lesser Knight?  And even in Jaime's trial what if it a Jaime who has been locked in a Black Cell for a couple of months? We have seen what that did to Ned, it could certainly take Jaime down a few pegs. Then the issue, IMHO is certainly in doubt.
