No human could ever think that was a good arc lol


mehtorite

Seriously. They should have had him strangle her to stop the dothraki from getting her and then died from his wounds. What happened was dumb. We all have the buddies who break our heart by going back to a shitty partner. It could have been a poignant statement on love making you do the wrong thing for the right reasons.


Scudamore

Going back to Cersei wasn't the worst part. Shows no growth, but fine. Characters don't always grow or change. The worst was him saying he never cared about the people of King's Landing, when they were the entire reason he willingly sacrificed public perception of his honor. It retconned one of the most meaningful moments in the series and the foundation of his character. Gods what a dumb ending.


thePinguOverlord

Going back to Cersei could have been great. I.E. Shows even if you changed, at the end of the day your family is your family and you can still love them no matter how much they hurt you. The problem with the "I never cared" line is the show makes it believe he never did. And the break neck speed of S8 does this. Had they showed it he was lying to himself to justify it to himself why he feels the way he did. Which they half do, but fumble so hard. Had Tyrion slapped him when they were talking about it, and had him scould him for saying it, it could have been achieved.


kurvyyn

Maybe even take the time to have Bran manipulate him to it too. Add some justification on why Bran would need to do it like "Cersei might be beaten too quickly with Jaime on the opposing side and we need a stiff fight to push Dany to madness". Jaime being their pawn is still better treatment than what they did.


bshafs

Can you explain this more? What specifically do you mean?


geesejugglingchamp

I think they are referring to the scene where he reveals to Brienne the reason he killed King Aerys. It wasn't that he changed sides when the Lannisters did, as was publicly perceived. It was that he discovered the king was planning to kill huge amounts of innocent people in king's landing with wildfire before he was defeated. Jamie was sworn to protect the king, but killed him to save the people. In doing so he sacrificed his own honour and reputation for the lives of the common people he didn't know. He was always looked down upon after that, especially by those who prized honour like Ned Stark. His title became 'kingslayer', for a member of the kingsguard, it was a constant reminder that he was the ultimate oath breaker. To have Jamie say he "never cared about the people" goes completely against his character defining act.


Scudamore

That was the one. It's a huge shift in his behavior for him to open up and admit to her why he did what he did. Instead of leaning into it or ignoring the Kingslayer comments, he allows himself to be vulnerable and reveals that he actually did what he did for honorable reasons. It's a pivotal moment for his character, both in how his past actions are perceived and in how he starts changing once he gets removed from Cersei's influence. But in D&D's revisionist history, he was lying to Brienne and was actually an asshole the entire time.


bshafs

Thanks this makes a lot of sense. I never understood why people hated that line so much. I always considered the line to be Jamie in denial. He was justifying anything for love, and so claims he doesn't care about the people.


marketwizards1990

I assume user is referring to the hot tub scene where Jamie describes the moment he killed the Mad King. "Burn them all, he kept saying."


butsadlyiamonlyaneel

*Fuck*, but that was a good scene. Now soiled in retrospect like over half of the series, but still a damn strong scene.


TyrannoROARus

Probably how he killed his king when his king wanted to light wildfire He saved all of them despite losing his honor


bshafs

Thanks. I always thought he killed the mad king so the Lannisters were on the winning side of the rebellion


LibrtarianDilettante

That is Ned Stark's view. Certainly Tywin sat on the fence until it was clear who would win. I actually believe Jamie for the most part, even though he's a piece of shit.


linderlouwho

Don’t know why he needed to bed Brianne at all. They had become good friends. That’s reason enough to hang out and stay by her side. I have guy friends I love to pieces, but we aren’t ever going to be romantic partners. (Was actually hoping she would hook up with Tor.)


catsmash

christ, exactly this! having them bang cheapened the relationship badly, as far as i was concerned. i thought their chaste close friendship was much more fascinating, and a great foil for his inappropriately sexual relationship with cersei.


Always_Guzzles_Cum

That's fair, but the books make it pretty overtly romantic.


catsmash

that's also fair. i just strongly preferred the tension & restraint in their mutual respect to actual consummation, in contrast to the fully hedonist, toxic thing he had with cersei.


linderlouwho

>their chaste close friendship was much more fascinating, and a great foil for his inappropriately sexual relationship with [cersei.](https://cersei.You) You really stated this perfectly, thanks.


catsmash

gosh, thank you!


linderlouwho

"chef's kiss"


Kev_daddy

You realize he doesn’t mean that right? Like they don’t spell it out for you cause it’s hella implied he’s just saying. Shit too Tyrion


baii7

Queenslayer ending would have been epic. The directors would have made that scene amazing.


WhiteyFiskk

The Rains of Castamere playing in the background would've worked so well.


paperkutchy

Well... not really if you see it coming. You cant re-enact the Red Wedding.


ReservoirPussy

The Rains of Castamere is their song, though. The reason it was shocking in the red wedding was nobody present was supposed to be aligned with the Lannisters.


Dot-Nets

Isn't that what the song that Ed Sheeran sang implied though? Haven't looked at the lyrics in a while though, but ever since that scene I always thought that's how it's going to turn out for the both of them. I was really disappointed, when it didn't :(


Elysium94

Or just kill her to stop her from setting off a bunch of wildfire and killing people, just like what happened to Aerys. Cersei was a monster. The audience knew it, and *Jaime* knew it. In both the books and show his arc is learning to embrace the good man we all knew he could be, and break free of his toxic relationship with the abusive and selfish Cersei. But no, all that's down the drain. "She's hateful, and so am I." **Bullshit**. Jaime's development, his capacity for doing good, is because he's *not* a hateful man.


BITmixit

TBF and the ONLY thing I will give this character arc is that it is VERY difficult to free yourself from a toxic, manipulative person when they have been so integrated into your life. For me, it would have played out better if he'd said the same thing to Brienne. Gone back, seen Cersei's wildfire plan or something. Then reversed position again, killing her and freeing himself from the toxic relationship. In GOT world, he'd forever be known as The Queen/Kingslayer but Brienne would have known...thus giving her survival some sort of fucking purpose.


Paper-Will

>TBF and the ONLY thing I will give this character arc is that it is VERY difficult to free yourself from a toxic, manipulative person when they have been so integrated into your life. In fairness, they were toxic to each other. Jaime literally raped her at Joffrey's wake.


peachigummy

The odd thing is that scene was explicitly consensual in the books. It's one of the most bizarre changes on the part of the show - why did they think that scene would be "improved" by turning Jaime into a rapist? What purpose was it meant to serve? What does it do for any sort of plot or character development for him OR Cersei? Because I sure don't see any reason for it narratively. Particularly after the efforts we see him go to just to prevent Brienne from being raped, it's just such a nonsensical decision on their part. Did they think viewers would...enjoy it more? Like what the fuck?


Paper-Will

Shock value, I suspect.


BeBa420

"They should have had him strangle her to stop the dothraki from getting her and then died from his wounds." ​ THAT woulda been epic!!! why the fuck werent you writing the final season?!?


BITmixit

A single page with the words "literally anything else" would be a better script. Hell, having the Muppets randomly warp in, save the day, then warp back to sesame street would have been more fucking entertaining. Now that certainly would have "subverted my expectations". Probably would have helped provide a decent bit of learning as well....not Arya telling us that a woman who just MASSACRED an entire fucking city that this woman...is indeed a killer. Plus Bert & Ernie could have teamed up with The Hound to take down The Mountain.


peachigummy

I'm on board with this version. The ending credits could just be that clip of Nikolaj playing the opening theme on the kazoo. Would still be more emotionally satisfying than what we got imo


BITmixit

Exactly plus a nice lil end of credits scene with Elmo giving an overall moral of the story "Elmo says...don't bang family members" Better then what we got, fun, exciting with a nice moral message to finish it off with.


linderlouwho

Muppets, lol, actually, yes!


kayGrim

Literally anyone who actually cared about the characters and the story would have done a better job.


Shadowfaps69

Honestly that’s true and it’s the worst part.


linderlouwho

They could have let the actors group-write seasons 7&8, and it would have been a thousand times better.


owningmclovin

That would ha e been good. I also liked the one suggestion here from a few months ago where Briane asks him not to go. So he doesn't and that's just it. He steps away from it all to be with her and is never more or less than that.


Paper-Will

Whelp. That's the best one I've ever heard. Him sitting on his horse, being asked to stay....hm struggling with it for a moment, then getting off the horse.


Ripflexxin

Should’ve been eaten by dragon in loot train


sullg26535

I mean that's usually what happens in real life


catsmash

actually, damn, wow, that's an awesome idea. having jaime murder cersei in an act of mercy would have been an incredible way to cap off their arc. it suits EVERYTHING about their relationship. now i'm upset AGAIN

Fuck Jaimie Lannister. I say this with sadness in my heart.


TheGentlemanK

Not dead. Just a kneeler. Which is practically the same thing. Dead inside.


iambackend

For me that was the only satisfying arc of the ending. Sometimes love is stupid and you can’t do anything about it.


Csonkus41

Exactly, I believe Jamie even specifically says in both the books and show “we don’t get to choose who we love”, he was ALWAYS going to end up with Cersei.


[deleted]

same here, I thought his arc in the end was a tragedy... it could've been done better but it didn't feel *that* out of character to me. Also book!Jaime and show!Jaime are two very different persons, as are book!Cersei and show!Cersei, so I don't think comparing the endings to their book personas is very fair.

I thought Jamie said those things to Brienne because he loved her but he knew he had to stop Cersei and saying those were the only way to get her to leave him. If only that was what really happened.

ICBanMI

Sorry everyone. [I'm on the guy who predicted Jamie Lannister was going to die in Brienne of Tarth's arms from a scene set up earlier.](https://www.express.co.uk/showbiz/tv-radio/940094/Game-of-Thrones-season-8-Cersei-Lannister-death-Lena-Headey-Jaime-Lannister) And that is likely why D&D had that terrible ending.


USERNAME1-2-3-

Jaime's story arc was immediately harmed after D&D decided to change Cersei's personality. In the books, Cersei is a narcissistic person who does not love her children and sees them only as a means to power. She brainwashes Tommen so that she can exercise power herself. However, she is afraid that she will lose control of him because Tommen is married off to Margaery. This is one of the reasons why she wants to eliminate Margaery. Cersei does this by sending a mature man to seduce that underage child, with the intention that Margaery will be captured (innocently) by the Faith on charges of disloyalty and high treason. This way, Cersei can once again fully exert the bad influence over Tommen. However, this plan goes awry. In Jaime, book-Cersei sees only a mirror image of herself, no more. There is no "real love" between Cersei and Jaime. Jaime is merely seen as an extension of herself.When Jaime ends up outside Cersei's sphere of influence in the books, Jaime begins to develop autonomy and generally a personality of his own (partly due to Brienne). If he later returns to Cersei, she is disgusted with him. Cersei is no longer interested in him, because he is no longer an exact copy of herself. Jaime realizes that Cersei does not love her (only pretends to) and that she herself has sex with many others. Jaime breaks all ties with Cersei and meets Brienne again (both are now being judged by Lady Stoneheart). George R. R. Martin has already responded in fan mail that the ending with Cersei/Jaime of the TV series is "an alternate reality" and that it is not inspired by the plans in the books. We can assume that Jaime will definitely stay out of Cersei's narcissistic sphere of influence and that they will not die in each other's arms. In the show, Cersei loves the children, who are unfortunately threatened by Margaery who is trying to brainwash them. Oh, and Jaime loves her, unconditionally. Cersei was justified in everything she did in the show - Jaime continues to love him. Well, D&D have decided to shift Cersei's bad qualities to Margaery. Cersei got whitewashed, and that has huge impact on Jaime's story arc.
