Scene Between Jaime And Brienne Has Game Of Thrones Fans In Tears

So, the second episode of Game of Thrones was emotional, wasn't it?

Before we get too far into it, this article contains spoilers, so if you've not seen episode two yet, don't bother reading any further.

As with all of the start of the eighth and final season, things are starting to smoulder away nicely ahead of the show's conclusion in four episodes' time.

Sure, the pieces are just moving into position ahead of the battle to end all battles, but there's still a lot of intrigue to be found in what is going on whilst they do that.


Perhaps the most emotional scene of all was a pretty touching encounter - no, not that scene between Arya and Gendry - between Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth.

Or should that be, Ser Brienne of Tarth.

Well, it should, because Jaime broke with many generations worth of tradition to make her the first female knight ever.


It's not before time, either. She'd kick seven shades into most of the other folk on the show, let alone just the men.

Before all of that, Brienne had defended Jaime in front of everyone at the court and even called him a 'man of honour'.

Given that he's spent years getting ridiculed for shagging his sister and being called 'Kingslayer' for stabbing Daenerys Targaryen's dad - the 'Mad King' - in the back, that's got to feel pretty good.


So, when everyone was gathered around the fire to drink away their fear and sorrow at their impeding death in the forthcoming Battle of Winterfell, Jaime took the opportunity to repay her faith in him and anoint into knighthood.

On top of that, Jaime also agreed to serve under Brienne in that aforementioned battle, so everyone's happy.

Well, except for the ones who are going to be butchered and enlisted to fight in the skeletal armies of the dead, which is a few of them.


By Game of Thrones standards, everyone was happy...

Of course, not everyone. Tormund won't be that happy, seeing as he's so keen on Brienne, but even he must have had a tear in his eye as she arose as the knight she's always deserved to be.

The good folk of House Twitter are certainly backing the appointment.


People have been flocking in their droves to praise the scene for it's emotional content and praise the show for actually giving characters a chance to redeem themselves and achieve what they want before they are inevitably hacked to bits by a screaming skeleton.

What do you reckon, though? Head on over to Game of Thrones: Westeros Posting on Facebook and give us your take on last night's scenes.

The third episode - one you're not going to want to miss - will be broadcast next Monday at 2am, then again at 9pm that same evening. Brace yourselves.
