Brienne of Tarth Writing About Jaime Lannister's Legacy Gets The Meme Treatment

Brienne of Tarth Writing About Jaime Lannister's Legacy Gets The Meme Treatment

One of the most controversial final seasons of a TV show just came to a conclusion.

"Game of Thrones" has been a radical series since its 2011 premiere, both in terms of money spent ($60 million on the first season) as well as the disposability of its characters.

Though the end is near for the "Game of Thrones" original series, the saga will continue in form of several spin-offs, which have been ordered by HBO.

Big fan of this To All The Boys I've Loved Before-inspired one. Most of the actors on Game of Thrones have not stopped their other projects during the show and have jobs lined up for years after it ends.

And in the series finale, Brienne makes it clear that she listened to Jaime's advice about the role, taking the time to fill out his entry in full. It's likely, though, that until this point, he might have believed that Jaime at least made it out alive.

She writes: "Faced the Army of the Dead and defended the castle against impossible odds until the defeat of the Night King". He died protecting his Queen, according to his official history and was finally freed of the image that wounded him so much - which he revealed to Brienne in his most vulnerable moments. "There's still time", Jaime had said.

"Why isn't ANYONE acknowledging that Jaime Lannister just died???" she mused.

While Jaime Lannister somehow making it out from underneath the rubble of King's Landing would be absurd, logic and reason have seemed to be dismissed in this final season of Game of Thrones, meaning that anything truly is possible heading into these final 80 minutes. Blunt, stupid, irrational and inexplicable love simply won out, as it so often does.

However, he voices what many were feeling as they watched their former savior Daenerys Targaryen, who only a season before was all mushy in her nephew Jon Snow's arms, incinerate a city of people out of pure madness. She chose dishonesty (mostly of omission, but still!) instead.

"It's the duty of the Lord Commander to fill those pages", he tells her. Brienne's final words praised Jamie for living up to his oath and offered a charitable explanation for his death. Give Brienne peace? Yes, please. "The thing about Dubrovnik is it's a really attractive city and they love it and they don't want us to burn it down".
