LynnS Posted May 5, 2021 Share Posted May 5, 2021 (edited) What strikes me about Lady SH is how merciless and implacable she was towards Brienne, who was even up to that point still trying to fulfill her promise to Catelyn Stark. Quote A Feast for Crows - Brienne I Only the soldier pines and sentinels still showed green; the broadleaf trees had donned mantles of russet and gold, or else uncloaked themselves to scratch against the sky with branches brown and bare. Every gust of wind drove swirling clouds of dead leaves across the rutted road. They made a rustling sound as they scuttled past the hooves of the big bay mare that Jaime Lannister had bestowed on her. As easy to find one leaf in the wind as one girl lost in Westeros. She found herself wondering whether Jaime had given her this task as some cruel jape. Perhaps Sansa Stark was dead, beheaded for her part in King Joffrey's death, buried in some unmarked grave. How better to conceal her murder than by sending some big stupid wench from Tarth to find her? Jaime would not do that. He was sincere. He gave me the sword, and called it Oathkeeper. Anyway, it made no matter. She had promised Lady Catelyn that she would bring back her daughters, and no promise was as solemn as one sworn to the dead. The younger girl was long dead, Jaime claimed; the Arya the Lannisters sent north to marry Roose Bolton's bastard was a fraud. That left only Sansa. Brienne had to find her. Ironically, Lady Stark is dead and Brienne's solemn promise to the dead still applies. Catelyn's promised not to ask Brienne to do anything that would dishonor her. I'm not sure if that still applies. Jaime will have to answer for his part in that promise and taking up arms against the Tully's. The BwB know that Arya still lives and so will Lady SH. I expect Brienne will have to continue the search. Jaime will have to do some fast talking if he is to avoid execution. Brienne may have to defend him in a trial by champion. With rumors of Arya marrying Ramsey Bolton and taking Winterfell; what are the chances that LSH will compel Jaime to abandon Cersei and take his army to Winterfell?
