What normie retards don't understand is that saving a city and not caring about the innocents are not mutually exclusive concepts. You don't have to care about people to save them.

jaime has been picking and choosing which oaths and morals to follow throughout his entire life. despite what people want you to believe, he does not have a deep sense of honor like ned, that's kind of the point of his character. if you read the books and can't see jaime ending up with cersei again, im sorry but you're just stupid. this is kind of like complaining about dany going mad... it was all there.

GoT is a Dungeons & Dragons session, this is why characters are so inconsistent, they fail their rolls randomly. Also explains how magic works and why Melisandre fails sometimes when trying to conjure up magic.
>>
>>114827381
Its a name for the two writers of the show: David and DB. The first few seasons they basically just took the books word for word and translated it into a show, but once the book material stopped around season 5 they had to take what GRRM (the book author) intended and put it into their own words. It's why everything from season 5 onwards just seems rushed and not thought out. There are other scenes in the earlier seasons that they added themselves that also are out of place.

>>114827510
We know. The point is that the *show* considers those mutually exclusive - they just turned their back on it to wrap it up with as few loose ends as possible.

Show Jamie sacrifices his life, wealth and honor to slay the Mad King, fully expecting to be executed for it - only for the sake of saving the innocents of Kings Landing.

Now, after he's a reformed man who just risked his life to go North (expecting to die just by going there, let alone fighting off hordes of ice zombies) Tyrion sacrifices his own life to help Jamie save the innocents, and Jamie's response to the request is "I never cared much about them".

That spits in the face of his entire character. His monologue to Edmure about slaughtering Riverrun for Cersei was a threat, a lie that he struggled to conceal. If he cared more about Cersei than everyone else, he never would've left her last season.

Fuck D&D and fuck those who apologize for them.

>Jamie sneaks into Kings Landing
>Instead of going to the red keep to be with Cersei he runs towards to the bell
>As he rings the bell he realises that Dany is going to burn Kings Landing anyway
>Dany begins to burn the city and the very thing he killed Aerys for is unfolding infront of him
>The bell starts fading out and he begins hearing Aerys chanting
>KILL THEM ALL
>He then dies as Drogon burns the bell tower he is standing in
He effectively becomes a victim of what he stopped all those years ago

You don't have to "care" about the people you want to save. There's something like decency and honor. At least in Western world.

>>114828527
in the last books he burned the letter from cersei in wich she begged him to come to KL to fight for her
>>
>>114826870
This isn't a fucking mystery.

They had five books worth of story and a page of bullet points for plot points in the remaining two books.

You can actually spot the exact time they started to panic and said "fuck it, just do the bullet points" without giving a fuck about how to build to them.

These last two seasons are the perfect example of that with the hundreds of miles of travel and the development that would happen if better writers handled it as opposed to it being rolled out like a shit you can't wait to flush.
>>
>>114829304
I'm just wondering who these fucks think they are that they're too good for the most popular TV show of all-time after starting out in awful shit like Wolverine Origins and Troy. Yeah Star Wars is popular but there's going to be a three year gap anyway because they fucked up with Solo so that left plenty of time for two ten episode seasons for 7 and 8.

I fucking love Jamie and I wish that he got a redemption arc and did all that he was, based on the arc, destined to do. I am, however, not mad about him not getting what I wanted him to get because that would make me a hypocrite. I understand that love trumps all and that, sometimes, no matter how hard you repress or ignore something, it is difficult to shake. Jamie tried his hardest to do what he thought was right and, in the end, he failed. Sometimes it happens, but to be mad about it yet cheer Dany's madness is hypocritical

Why is it hypocritical? Dany going mad isn’t a twist for anyone paying attention.

>>114830467
He knows she cucked him since Tyrion told him, he's not going back to her no matter what those kikes came up with for the show. And even if he knows he can't win, if he was so addicted to her he'd still go back to die with her like in this shitty show.
>>
>>114830467
His response wouldn’t be to burn the letter and ignore her if that was the reason you retard.
Stop the deluding yourself into believing he hasn’t turned from her in the books

sounds corny and too passive of a death. these sound overlays only really work for short youtube videos and don't translate well to the offical thing. at least with dying in cersei's arms you could say that the prophecy of dying "by" her valonquars hands could have been poorly translated and meant she would die "in" her valonquars hands/arms, that they would die together like they were born

so what? he's pissed off at her. she can survive and jaime can still end up back with her. cersei isn't dying any time soon lol.

His redemption arc hadn’t started yet, you’re just making yourself look like an idiot in your effort to prove that his arc doesn’t make sense.
A failed redemption arc could have worked, but it just felt wrong, like the whole time they weren’t sure what he was going to do, or wanted to just keep it unclear all the way to the end so it would be another ebin twist

Personally I see that as Jaime trying to have Cersei give up/move on from him. He also talks about how he's nowhere as good as he was before to win the duels.

If he really was over/hated her, he'd send her a message telling her to fuck off and die. By not answering, she could just think her message didn't reach him and go find some other person to fight for her, and supposing that person does win, she'd have someone else to depend on and might shift her feelings for the guy.
>>
>>114830627
Because there was nothing that indicated that he wasn't simply lying to himself. If you knew what love does to people, you would know how difficult it is to break out from under someones spell. Jamie stuck by Cersei's side after she did some pretty heinous shit, he simply lied to himself and said enough was enough. Eventually, in a moment, of weakness, he relapsed. Nothing unlikely about this.

Imagine the moment Tyrion told Jamie about the campaign in KL, the voice of Marcella rang through his head. "I'm happy that you're my father." In this moment, he knew what he must do

david&stern are drooling retards but they were told how the story ends by GRRM, how they pull it of is bullshit but it stands to reason that one of the main characters (jamie) acutally dies like this
>>
Ned Stark have a greater sense of honor than Jamie that for sure. But Jamie is a lot more interesting as a character.
He is torn between the conflict of the men he want to be, a truly honorable knight and the way of his family. Tywin doesn't care for stuff like honor, he just want Jamie to put Lannister survival at the top of his priority without caring of the action he has to take. The show raped his entire character arc, he was one of my favorite, but then he has been condemned to a Limbo between loving Cersei or going on with his life.
>>
>>114830962
>there was nothing that indicated that he wasn't simply lying to himself
He’s pov. We can see what he is thinking. He was going crazy over every scenario involved with her leading up to leaving her

Like what? She was just an incompetent schemer
>>
>>114831027
its not honor, its his own sense of what he considers right and wrong. he killed a king he swore to protect to save the population of KL, he could have done the exact reverse of that and justify it in the exact same way.

He didnt really do much as a kingsguard besides stand next to arys and then stood next to robert. When it was time for him to step up and finally get involved in a real war he is quickly captured.

>Implying his little speech to Brienne about "saving everyone" wasnt to try and give himself some unearned heroism and justify his Kingslaying
>He immediately undoes this reason afterward saying "What if someone commanded you to kill your own father"

Heres the actual reason.

>Tywin pledged to defend the city against the approaching rebel host but once the gates were opened to them, Lord Tywin ordered his army to sack the city, as a show of loyalty to the new king.
>As Lannister soldiers brutally rampaged through the city, the Mad King, Aerys II Targaryen was personally murdered by Ser Jaime Lannister, a member of his Kingsguard.

As soon as Jaime learned his father was sacking the city, he joined in and stabbed the Mad King in the back.

He had done absolutely jack shit up until that point.

Had nothing to do with "saving innocent civilians" from wildfire. If that were the reason he wouldn't have waited until the absolute last second.

He never cared about anyone except himself and his family.
>>
>>114838312
this is the best explanation

you dont suddenly "save kings landing" and then go back to pushing kids out of towers and killing your cousin.
>>
The all point opf the characters is that he is balanced between his sens of honor/duty and his impossible love for his sister.
In the end he choose his sister because love make us do dumb things.
It was maybe poorly done but the screenplay couldn't have been different.
Also if you didn't forsee it in EP1S01 you're a brainlet

Jaime's arc makes total sense, he was rationalizing his oneitis to Brienne and Tyrion. He just loved Cersei more than anything. It's kino.
>>
>>114838312
>If that were the reason he wouldn't have waited until the absolute last second.
Aerys was going to blow the city up if he lost, and if Jaimie just killed the Mad King without it being sure that the throne would be usurped Rhaegar + hand would have taken the throne and executed him.

Also if he didn't care about anyone but himself he wouldn't have left Cersei, he wouldn't have ridden back for Brienne and he wouldn't have joined the fight against the white walkers.

And Jon being the sword of the morning makes too much sense. Dawn is literally lightbringer, it is described as the sword of light, Martin even said that the sword is waiting in Starfall for the next person who will be worthy.
Jon has been built since the beginning to be Azor Ahai who will fight the white walkers, it fits perfectly into his story. Him being a Targaryen doesn't.

What is there in the story to support the R + L = J theory? If you remove the vague feverish dream Ned had, absolutely nothing.
Jon never had dragon dreams, he isn't immune to fire, he isn't blond. He is described since book one as the "perfect clone of Ned" etc. It just doesn't make sense.

>>114839949
Jon is supposed to be the ultimate willpower over destiny character. He's the closest character we get to lowborn (other than Areo Hotah) and he is rising in leadership mostly through merit. Too bad the show undercut his character arc. Seems like the books will do that too.
>>
>>114840843
At least in the show he's the one Targaryen we know of who wasn't the result of inbreeding, it's reasonable to assume he won't be as Targaryen as the others. And Lyanna is Ned's sister, people can look like their uncles.

How could Jon even ride a dragon if he isn't immune to fire?

Such a fucking kino ending.
And THIS would have been foreshadowed, the dude is called "Kingslayer" since S01E01 and we've seen him charge a fucking dragon straight up, he deserved to strangle his evil sister with his golden hand and die after disposing of the NK, in Brienne's arms, under the woodtree, whispering "Jaime...my name is Jaime..."

Oh shit I read wrong and thought you support R + L = J. I actually agree with you. The show is more evidence against R + L, secret marriages are pointless and there is no evidence.

It's true people can look like their uncles but it's far more likely to look like your parents. "The seed is strong"

>>114840878

>>
>>114841495
Right next to Brandon Stark whose life he would have saved, thus repaying somehow his debt.
You can even still have Arya do the ninja jump on the NK, she'd serve as a distraction for a wounded Jaime to get a window on delivering the killing blow on the NK - much like Merry wounds the Witch King for Eowyn.
WAS IT SO FUCKING HARD, D & D ?

Not Ned's apparently. 4/6 of his children look more like Edmure Tully. No one is thinking INCEST in this case.

>>
>>114841405
I'm not saying he isn't Targaryen at all, just that doesn't have 100% of it like the others.
As for the dragon they put Tormund, Berric and the other boys on a dragon to get them out of the north. We never saw Jon get scortched so as long as that happens I think it doesn't matter.

didn't Ashara throw herself off the tower of Starfall when Ned came to tell her Ser Arthur was dead? Tyrion hasn't ever seen her, much less notice that she had a kid, what the fuck are you talking about.
>Barristan confirmed that Ned fucked Ashara
when does he say that, quote it for me. they danced duringt the harrenhall tourney iirc and were generally friendly with each other which is why everyone, including Catelyn, assumed that she must be Jon's mother. no way >Barristan confirmed that Ned fucked Asharait would Jon's true heritage be this on the surface.

>>
>>114833838
Because it wasn't hinted or shown in any way, unlike his departure from King's Landing or everything that happens before which saw him evolving out of his relationship with Cersei.

Let's cut the wishful thinking and blank filling, D&D just killed him to end a popular character that didn't had any place in the ending they envisioned just like they did with Littlefinger.
>>
I don't know why people complain about Jaime really. Yes he went back to Cersei but he also proved that he was a good man. He showed that he legit thought saving the realm was more important than being with Cersei, that's why he risked going the North alone. Staying or not staying with Brienne has nothing to do with being a good man. The moment he and Tyrion hugged was the moment the show recognized Jaime's story had come to a conclusion. He had won that battle, he had proved himself in front of redemption. Was dying with Cersei selfish? Maybe but that in no way nullfies all he had accomplished.
>>
>>114842353

Aegon would be the same age as Jon. Both were born during the rebellion.

That poster is implying that Tyrion is commenting on Aegon's Septa and that she's Ashara Dayne.

The septa that accompanies Aegon is Ashara, the way Tyrion describes her make it pretty clear.
You're right about Barristan, but it still confirms that they at least liked each other.
>>
>>114842887
>>114842688
the septa is supposed to be Ashara? cool, haven't heard that one before (though i don't actively browse for theories). what are the arguments for this? i don't remember her having purple eyes, that would be a big hole in the theory, wouldn't it.

Jaime's arc was KINO and plebfilter.

Every heroic thing Jaime did was an attempt to rid himself of the Kingslayer name and also out of a desire to build his own legend.
The only other way he'd have wanted to die was doing something worthy of Legend, like fighting the Army of the Dead.

There would always be someone to remind him of him being the King Slayer.
- Ned
- Robert
- Catelyn
- Locke
- Tywin
- Daenerys
- Euron
(literally the last ep. He kills the people (personified by Euron) calling him Kingslayer and enters the dying city through a dark cave, to be with his beloved Cersei (ABSOLUTE KINO))

Jaime could not live in a world where a Targaryen ruled, serving as an eternal reminder of his "mistakes".
Tywin taught him that the family name is all that lives on. As Tyrion had already pledged himself to Daenerys and Cersei would never co-exist with Tyrion, if Cersei were to die, Jaime would have no legacy. So of course he'd go back to Cersei.

Having post-suicide-mission victory sex with a blonde amazon wasn't going to change him at his core.
>>
>>114828941
They should definitely had Jamie remember this when Dany torches the city.
It not being there in any way really shows how little the two kikes in charge care about this series.
The worst part is that the video in OP made me miss this series.
>>
>>114842242
Personality in ASOIAF at least isn't very genetic. Only Rob and Jon are like Ned. Sansa is more like Catelyn, and Bran and Arya are more like Lyanna from what we know of her.. Rickon is more like Shaggy dog although that may be just warg weirdness.

In the case of the Lannisters, we don't know much about Tommen and Myrcella because they are too young, but Joffery is actually much more like Bobby Baratheon than Jaime, Cersei, or Tywin. The Lannisters are calculating and usually unemotional, but Joffery is needlessly cruel and vicious, thinking nothing of politics or what others think of him. This is like Bobby B. who cares nothing about the sack of KL, the murder and rape Rhaegars children and wife and would assassinate a young girl if she posed a threat. He does what he wants whether it is to start a war, or bang every chick in the 7 kingdoms.
>>
>>114829304
>>114829504
I don't think they followed the bullet points, Euron is clearly too central a character in the books to just end up Cersei's side piece and that excludes all of the fuckery with Hightower, Bran's wolf, the Golden Company and Aegon Targaryean, anything Dorne related and so on.

I think DnD just used GoT as an excuse to make Rome and used the freedom and popularity they'd gained from the first 4 scenes to force GRRM out when they could and just write their own shitty version of Rome.
>>
>>114843130
The arguments are
>She is around the same age
>Is attractive
>Has given birth
Also it's pretty suspicious that someone as observant as Tyrion omitted her eye colour in his description of her
>>
>>114843130
He doesn't comment about her eyes. He says she's clearly more than she pretends to be, she's more or less the same age as Cersei and would have been one of the most beautiful woman in the realm in her youth. And that she has stretch marks from pregnancy. Maybe other things I forgot about

>>
>>114842787
You don't have to save someone to be redeemed. Sometimes your actions alone speak more than all your failures. Bran, of all people, (methaphorically) stood up for him when Sansa and the Mad Queen were about to execute him. That spoke louder than any dramatic saving would have.
>>
>>114843188
Jamie became the kingslayer because saving innocents was more important than glory. Him saying that he doesn’t give a fuck about innocents is bullshit.

Tywin and Tyrion, sure. But Jamie and Cersei no way. Bobby wasn't a monster he didn't order the sack of KL, regretted the decision to send assassins after Dany in the end iirc and knocked out Joffs teeth for mutilating a pregnant cat. You have a point about both of them being primarily self interested though.

Jaime would always put the greater good above his selfish needs. That was shown even during this last season episode.

Swearing to Tyrion he would ring the bells instead of trying to fight the battle for Cersei = fighting for the greater good
>>
>>114840443
I often wondered if Jaime would get to learn who Jon really was, since in the books he said his great regret was failing to protect Rhaegar's children. Shame that didn't come up in the show.
>>
>>114827662
Tyrion is the son Tywin always wanted but could never admit it to himself who lets it out passive aggressively on Jaime who learned to come to grips with what he is. By picking and choosing different ideals he's not being selfish he's being selfless.
>>
>>114827662
Jaime even refused to kill Ned in season 1 because it wouldn't have been honorable.

Honor is everything to Jaime, he dreams of being a good knight who fights for the people. But he always ends up in situations where he has to make impossible choices, torn between his honor and his father/duty towards his king/sister etc.
And no matter what he chooses, everyone always hates him for it.

The death of the Night King should have been Jaime, Jon, and Theon vs. Night King (and may be a few squaddies). Jaime dies protecting Bran from a deathblow. Theon gets taken out of the fight early (presumed dead). Jon 1v1s Night King, but just as he's about to lose is saved by Theon, who gets the killing blow, before succumbing to his wounds.

I don't mean that Sansa and Jaime both want to be knights. I meant that both of them grew up on stories of knights and princesses. Heroes and Villians.

When they both finally get to the castle and become knights and princesses, their rose-tinted goggles are shattered.

They could have made his ending kino with minimal changes.

He should've accepted that he was doomed to love Cersei but also understood that she had to die.

He should have killed her and himself and they would've left the world together the same way they came in to it. That's some poetic justice right there.

They could've even fallen out of the tower together like Bran.
>>
>>114846149
Nah, I wanted Jamie to die killing the night king. That way he would be remembered as a great knight, while still retaining the title of kingslayerz
>>
>>114845800
This.
To go even further : the reason he's not good at being a backstabbing cunt is exactly because he doesn't do it properly and loathes to do it.
Instead of owning the fact that he is dishonored for life and becoming a scheming rat, he always does what needs to be done but hates to pretend it is who he is.
In season 1 he refuses to personally finish Bran because of this.
He also refuses to ever backstab Brienne, and he's stupid loyal to Cersei in spite of her being an evil bitch.
His tragedy is that he is a loyal, chivalrous man in a world where there is no room for it - even Jon Snow gets killed for it.

I don't care what the Jewtuber says but you could also make the statement for how Family bonds trumps honor.

Jamie threw it all to the wind to be with Cersei one final time. Tyrion did the exact same thing in the hopes that Jamie and Cersei would survive. The only thing that's going to save Tyrion now is somebody killing Dany before she executes him.

Jon is likely going to Kill Dany because she'll be threatening an assault on Winterfell if Sansa doesn't submit to her. Which will be another case of family bonds trumping honor. Ned hid Jon's identity due to a bond with his sister.

It wasn't about honour, Jaime has done plenty of dishonourable stuff throughout his life. When he was growing up he dreamed about being a great swordsman like Ser Arthur Dayne. Ned was the one who defeated Dayne in battle so he wanted to defeat Ned in a proper duel and be the undisputed greatest swordsman in Westeros.

Getting defeated, captured and dismembered did wound his pride and cause him to become more humble, but he was never an honourfag to the core like Ned.

The character was ruined since the very beginning. He never really gave up Cersei (because D&D had to have Cersei on the show because they are banging Lena behind the scenes). There was no arc in his character, no development. He just stayed the same Jaime as he was in season 1, but a bit more humble. Not as bad as the butchering of Stannis, but still - pretty bad.
>>
>>114848929
its not about him being good or evil, its about apathy. several scenes in the book and on screen show him to actually care, not just about being percieved to be honourable, but actually being an honorable man. so when at the end he says "lol no i actually never did care" that shits on his character

Jamie saying “I don’t care about innocents” is like Daenerys saying “I don’t care about ruling Westeros.” or Jon saying “I don’t care about defeating the Night King.”
