proggrrl: (Jamie + Brienne GOT)
[personal profile] proggrrl
A friend of mine [ profile] reginaspina, who shares my love of the Jamie and Brienne characters in both the Game of Thrones books and the TV show, has posted something lovely and memorable about last week's episode 307 (and some of the scenes that came in the few weeks before).

These two characters, their journey together, and the effects they have on each other through the books, are a big favorite of mine from the ASOIAF series. I was very concerned about how the TV showrunners and writers would handle this key season for them (book 3 is their big moment so far in the book series).

All I can say is... WOW did they do a great job.

AAAAH! I'm so glad you liked that post. This season has been so WONDERFUL - I even like the way they changed things from the books (well, almost everything, that one line about "bloody woman" I still don't love!) to make Jaime more apparently in love with Brienne and to make the bear pit grimmer and more dangerous than it was even in the books. SO MUCH LOVE for the writing, direction, and above all these splendid actors this season.

One thing I noticed when I was rewatching from earlier in the season (and from your picture above) - look how Jaime puts himself between Locke and Brienne right from the beginning. That's such a great little bit of business - foreshadowing and just RIGHT.

It's been just fabulous. The actors chosen, the writing, the amount of screen time. All of it. (Though I must admit a fear that we are not going to see J/B any more this season. TBC.)

I loved that you analyzed that 'goodbye' scene versus the dream in the book, so clever and I imagine quite the intent of the writers. Someone needs to ask Brian Cogman about that at comic con...

As we've discussed, you and I are enamored of this pair for different reasons, sort of -- but we can both commiserate easily on our shared bliss! ;-)
