    Yeah suprise us all by getting jiggy with Brienne :humper:
    well mabye that won't suprise anyone here seeing as how it's been referred to a few times by people. could Jaime perhaps find some way to convince Dany that he shouldn't be killed and join her?

    Losing his hand changed Jaime, as did Tyrion's telling him that he killed Joffrey.


    AFFC SPOILER!

    Highlight:

    On the other hand, in AFFC, Jaime is rather more cool and collected than usual, although a lot of his actions are driven by rage against Cersei - "Put this in the fire," he said when Cersei asked for him to ride to King's Landing. Learning that Cersei's been lying to him for years changed his character. Although AFFC was rather slow in terms of action, it was fast in terms of character development, especially for Jaime.


    What I also found interesting is that Genna said that Tyrion was Tywin's son, not Jaime or Cersei. "Jaime," she said, tugging on his ear, "sweetling, I have known you since you were a babe at Joanna's breast. You smile like Gerion and fight like Tyg, and there's some of Kevan in you, else you would not wear that cloak.... but Tyrion is Tywin's son, not you. I said so once to your father's face, and he would not speak to me for half a year. Men are such thundering great fools. Even the sort who come along once in a thousand years."

    not so much a spoiler but responding to LDH so:

    Highlight :
    Yea I totally agree with Genna's comment about Tyrion as opposed to Jaime being Tywin's son. It's so much the truth cuz where Jaime could do physically Tyrion had to do mentally and for all Tywin's actions it was his mind that made him the evil devious bastard that he was. I think that as Jaime really accepts that he doesn't have to be like his father while all his other changes are going on he'll really come to be more of a decent human and not a nasty filthy Lannisterssss

    oh most defianitely agree with the trebuchet comment. but it kinda seemed to me more of a threat that was backed by the fact that he is a Lannister. Not something he'd actually do.

    Oh, but I think he would. That way, he wouldn't actually have to "take up arms" against House Stark or Tully, and Jaime does seem very hooked onto the idea of keeping that vow to Cat. I know a lot of us (including me) complained that AFFC was slow in terms of action, it did set up a lot of stuff for the book after ADWD. And it was very, very fast in character development, especially for Jaime.

    True but if he really is trying to change who he is it seems kinda outta his new character.But seeing he is who he is it's prolly likely.

    I really think he was grasping for something that would not break his oath with Catelyn. And I guess if it came down to it he'd do it. Being a born again oathkeeper and all.

    Well in any case Jaime is a bum! :moon1:
    I hope him and Sandor :argue: and Sandor makes him :eatshit: so he :yak: and then Sandor can :hackit: then Sandor can go off and find Gregor the undead homo and go all :devilspin :devilspin on his ass with whatever bloody stump he cuts off Jaime.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :(

    Both Sandor and Jaime must live, they're the best characters in aSoIaF :D Besides Arya, of course.

    I don't think that Jaime is really an "oathbreaker." He didn't enjoy it, and remember he had only reasons. Aerys was planning to burn down KL, and leave Robert only ashes.

    So, breaking oath + killing king > or < saving thousands? I don't know, and the only thing I do know is that I'm not going to be hasty about judging him, if I judge him at all.

    I don't judge him for killing Aerys. He did the right thing there. I judge him for staying as part of the Kingsguard afterwards, for sleeping with his sister, for throwing Bran out a window. That's what I judge him for. No he's not all bad but he is by no means a decent person. If not Sandor maybe my fav will give him the :hackit: job. Go go gadget Tyrion. Not that I expect Tyrion to do it. Most likely it will be the :dragon: lady. And thats cool cuz she's hot hot hot

    Staying as part of the Kingsguard afterward is as much Robert's fault as his. Robert chose to pardon Jaime, after all. And as for sleeping with his sister... yeah, it's nasty, but he also loved her in his own way. Just because he committed incest doesn't make him a bad person, just a sick one.

    As for chucking Bran out the window, I hated him for that too. But on the other hand, remember his words: "The things I do for love," he said with loathing... It doesn't excuse him from the fact that he did do several terrible things, by all means, but I still like Jaime. If you're going to judge someone, let it be Cersei, Robert, or Joffrey. They deserve it. :p

    That was the one and only thing he did wrong!
    So there.

    And who's YOUR favorite character? EVERYONE does something bad, so there! :p Arya kills lots of people, so does Dany, and every single other person in the book.... at least Jaime doesn't pretend that he's a nice person. Unlike everyone else. :p

    *proud member of the Jaime Defense Force* :D
