Fool Stands On Giant’s Toe Posted March 8, 2021 Share Posted March 8, 2021 Just wondering what other people’s thoughts are on the reason, or cause, for Jamie’s hand being cut off. Please vote or poop on any you like but definitely add your own no matter how absurd you feel it may be. 1. Was it just for shits and giggles? 2. To neuter Jamie as a swordsman? 3. Tywin arranged the removal to release Jamie from the Kingsgaurd? 4. An added disfigurement to pass him off as the real Jamie, once the imposter was seen to be an inadequate swordsman when he was “captured” during his fight with Brienne. 5. Not being allowed to rape Brienne the Bloody Mummers just wanted to pass around and use Jamie’s hand for “Weird Shit!” 6. Something with the Gods? Jamie has his sword hand cut off and Tyrion his nose. All that Jamie ever was was his hand. (His words or close to it.) Nose = Knows. “If the gods are good, he'll look like his uncle and think like his father.” 7. Punishment for stealing or poaching. Wrongfully taking Jory’s life. 8. Lord Leech took his hand for X? reasons, and required Jamie to be dead feverish in need of leeching (to open his eye) and strong wine with herbs for the inflammation. hippocras? (Pssst... we all know that’s not wine he’s sipping right?) 9. Or something like the hand was reaped by a sharp, shivering, silver, scythe that makes him roar. The fat Dothraki put aside his knife to unsheathe a huge curved arakh, the wickedly sharp scythe-sword the horselords loved. no sellsword would make him scream. Sunlight ran silver along the edge of the arakh as it came shivering down, almost too fast to see. And Jaime screamed. 10. The Dothraki was aiming for the chains and just had a Whoopsy. “My bad!, thought that was gonna look really cool. You know striking chains off with a sword?! Wait, let me try again. Geeesh fine I’ll use the key” Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
