GAME OF THRONES fans will remember the surprising scene that saw Jaime Lannister’s attention turn to Brienne of Tarth. Despite the pair spending the night together, Jaime took off and went straight back to Cersei the next day. But why did the Kinslayer really leave?
In the season eight episode of Game of Thrones titled The Last of the Starks, Jaime Lannister (played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) spends the night with Brinne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) despite having been in a relationship with his twin sister Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) since the series began. However, the recently released script from the episode seems to have revealed why he left so fast.
The scene between Jaime and Brienne proved confusing for fans as it seemed to suggest that Jaime slept with Brienne knowing full well that he would return to his sister.
However, according to Insider, the script revealed a part that fans of the TV series would have missed.
In the final episode that aired on HBO, the love scene featured a shot of Brienne fast asleep as Jaime lay awake before hitting the road.
However, episode’s script featured a description of what was really going on inside Jaime’s head at this point.
