Game of Thrones: A big hand for the little lady

Brienne and Jaime in happier days.

Brienne and Jaime in happier days.

My new favorite TV couple is Jaime and Brienne. Like Oscar and Felix, they are an indeed an odd couple. But a rather fascinating odd couple.

In this week’s episode of Game of Thrones, aptly titled The Walk of Punishment, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), reveals his soft spot for his warrior captress Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie).

Since the get-go, there’s been a whisper of sexual tension between the two, though Brienne, chaste, loyal, and strong, is as far removed from Jaime’s scheming sister/lover as one could get. Perhaps that’s the attraction?

Up until their capture by the Bolton gang, the two had merely traded barbs and crossed swords while Jaime half-heartedly kept trying to escape. A laughtrack for their scenes wouldn’t have been out of line.

But Jaime’s fatal flaw is hubris. And this time it cut him to the quick.

After sweet talking the Bolton leader into not gang raping Brienne, (Her father would pay handsomely for her if she was returned “unbesmirched”) he thought he could sweet talk the leader into loosening his restraints so he could get a better night’s rest.

Not. Going. To. Happen.

The leader wasn’t interested in Jaime’s sleep number or his tempur-pedic preferences. So after the immortal line, “You think you’re the smartest man there is. That everyone alive has to bow and scrape and lick your boots,” Jaime forever became a southpaw.

Your move Brienne.
