Tonight Jaime Lannister made some selections that basically confused followers. (Effectively, technically the confusion began final week.) Jaime was on the street to redemption. Within the Season 7 finale he lastly freed himself of Cersei’s affect after realizing that she was keen to betray the North and provides the Night time King’s military an opportunity at successful simply to have a greater shot on the Throne. Jaime left her over that and Cersei put a bounty on his head, hiring Bronn to kill each Jaime and Tyrion.

Jaime knew all this and but nonetheless he determined to depart Brienne and return to Cersei. I hoped it was to kill her, as a result of he’s the King Slayer in any case. However no. Tyrion wished him to go and persuade Cersei to give up and ring the bell.

When Jaime lastly discovered Cersei, it was as a substitute to have a final embrace as they died. She was terrified about dying whereas pregnant with their unborn little one. And Jaime advised her: “Nothing else issues, solely us.” That was a transparent callback to what he has stated to her previously.

However do different followers agree with how I felt? Right here’s what they needed to say. (Some tweets can have profanity, understandably.)

Oh, and I forgot that Jaime advised Tyrion earlier that he by no means actually cared for the innocents. What?

So we’ve obtained to contemplate that too. Hmmmm. However wait, maintain up… Didn’t he simply go away King’s Touchdown so he may struggle for innocents’ lives in opposition to the Night time King? I’m so confused now.

This tweet is simply humorous.
