We have no reason to believe anything until we see it on the page. To me a trial by combat has a certain logic. You have rejected everything I've said. So we will have to leave it at that. I haven't rejected. I have said why it looks unlikely to me. And while I agree with you that the BwB acepted a trial by combat, I also asked you how jaime could end up in a similar situation with the current BwB. Quote Beric Dondarrion turned back to the Hound. "You stand accused of murder, but no one here knows the truth or falsehood of the charge, so it is not for us to judge you. Only the Lord of Light may do that now. I sentence you to trial by battle." What can lead people in the BwB to say something like this about jaime? Is there any doubt that he lead lannister men against the tullys? That he threatned edmure's baby and it was witnessed by a member of the BwB? That he has been helping the freys end the war? That roose gave jaime's regards to LSH during the RW and therefore implicating him? That the current BwB wants revenge and is breaking the old laws in order to acheive it? I am genuinely asking you why you think a trial by combat is likely. Because some of the arguments you used just aren't that good. Brienne isn't trusted in the BwB and is seen as a lannister lackey. Her words won't do much to defend jaime and given their separation she will say that jaime was alone with roose for a while and could in fact planed the RW. How can jaime defend his actions in the riverlands? Will the BwB acuse him of fathering cersei's children? What can be done to defend jaime? Edit And look at this. Quote "I've admitted to shoving your precious urchin out a window, what would it gain me to lie about this knife?" He tossed down another cup of wine. "Believe what you will, I'm past caring what people say of me. And it's my turn. and Quote "You admit to being your sister's lover?" "I've always loved my sister, and you owe me two answers. are proof of more of jaime's crimes that he himself admited.
