Few reunions again, few battles building up and few lost without any fight, some been killed to raise above once conventional being and some gave up lives in pride and then there were some who came together in such conditions that could not really hold up to the moment for any long as their honor and loyalties to their houses and task they have been put upon, is far more important than their actual emotion. Well this whole feeling and emotions were drawn from the sequence which brought Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth together after a very long time in last Sundays 8th Episode “No One” and as actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Gwendoline Christie came together in an Interview With Entertainment Weekly they made some insightful point on their unconventional relationship and a chemistry they possess.

Actors Playing Jaime & Brienne Acknowledge Their Unconventional Relationship From “No One”

Speaking about the scene Coster-Waldau acknowledges the importance of both of their meet and how everyone is very much aware of their long gone history of being together and developing some kind of emotions. He even agreed to the fact that both are though people and even though think are pretty clear on the surface they would hold it up as their duty calls for it first, “we know there’s history between them, that this is more than two knights meeting. But they would never speak of it openly.”

Christie’s take on the scene was pretty more exciting and according to her, Brienne was very much though with the thought inside her that she needs to get to the point of the case and as this whole situation has brought them up in a very uncertain meet, the scene allowed her character to be that way. “I just loved that it was so formal, because within the confines of such formality, and having to negotiate with each other, there are so many other stories begging to be told in those moments. There’s a slow process of creeping familiarity among two people who haven’t been together for a long time; it was allowed to build. And I love that Brienne asserts her intelligence and her newfound mind of strategy and negotiates with Jaime and gets the outcome she wants – he allows her safe passage to go in and negotiate.”

Answering the question about what audiences have been expecting for a long while, as something need to takes place between both the characters and with the introduction of Bronn before the situation of Brienne coming across Jaime takes place and him building up the usual sort of expected notion and then nothing like that being taking place, Coster-Waldau said,

“(Bronn) tells us what the audience suspects. It’s a great way to get all that stuff into the audience’s head before the scene because then there’s this added subtext. Jaime is always about Cersei and what he can do to help her and how to achieve whatever she wants. And for Brienne, it’s the same – she has an oath to Catelyn Stark. She’s extremely strong willed and has her honor and has to do the right thing always. Sometimes, with both of them, you just want to go, ‘For god’s sake, let it go for a one second. What about what you want?’ They never listen to themselves. And what I love about the end of this scene is there’s some heartbreak. Because, once again, they were close. But are they ever gonna be able to talk about something other than someone else’s agenda?

Well the part that we were expecting to take place in the GOT 6 Episode 8 No One was that there will be some actions, a battle will take place as Blackfish ain’t giving up, and instead he challenges Jaime. With that sort of a conversation, we saw earlier made everyone feels that Jaime is now going to rush into the castle with his army, but that didn’t take place and many of the followers were disappointed about that, not all but some because all they wanted was some actions. But according to Coster-Waldau Jaime Lannister is getting matured and knows how to play along to get what he is asking for but without using arms and by killing hundreds of people. Thus, he states that the scene between Jaime and Edmure is the favorite one and providing some explanation he said,

“You’ve seen Jaime grow into a very skilled negotiator. It’s very relaxed, very conversational, then it turns on, ‘If you don’t do what I want you do to do, you’re going to have to accept that I’m going to kill every person in that castle … I’ll do anything for my sister. And if I have to do horrible things to you and your family, so be it.’ I hope that the audience appreciates it because we’re cheating a little bit – we’re building up to this big battle with Lannister forces and the castle and a siege that’s going to be bloody and crazy. But then, no, it’s not. He resolves it by his intelligence and wit. He’s actually saving a lot of peoples’ lives by using words instead of arrows . . . The character is growing and doesn’t get emotional about it.”

Even the final scene were Jaime finds out Brienne is escaping the castle with Podrick on a small boat through the river, they catch up with each other from distance and then we see those eyes craving for this moment to last a bit more as they have come across each other after so long and now will be separated again in different place. As they wave each other we see the emotions in them, it’s a sheer heartbreak and we truly feel that’s it really was that magic in writing that particular scene with sheer emotions.
