Jaime’s Whiplash Story Arc Was So Disgusting, It Made Me Sick

**This post is dark and full of spoilers**

This week’s Game of Thrones was a giant celebration for everyone who defeated the Army of the Dead and the Night King. While it was really all thanks to our girl Arya, the rest of the squad was so happy to be alive they drowned themselves in wine and ale.

And with Game of Thrones, where there’s wine, there’s sex. The night of debauchery led to some coupling up, especially for Jaime and Brienne—the most random pairing in Game of Thrones history.

After playing another rendition of the only drinking game Tyrion knows how to play (the Westeros version of “never have I ever”), Brienne revealed she’s a virgin. Embarrassed, she headed to her room to get away from the revelry, but Jaime went after her. Using the “heat” from Brienne’s fire as an excuse to strip down, the two ended up boning into the Long Night.

That’s right, Jaime finally nailed someone other than Cersei. 

Rather than just a sweaty, drunken one-night stand, Jaime seemed to be catching feelings. He told Tyrion he planned to stay in Winterfell alongside Brienne while everyone else rode off to King’s Landing to take down his ex-lover/twin sister/mother of his three dead children.

And, fans were kinda into it…at first.

But, then, after hearing that Cersei killed Missandei and Rhaegal and realizing that she’s still a threat, Jaime tries to sneak off in the middle of the night to King’s Landing. Even though he was regularly sleeping with Brienne, sharing a bed and basically becoming an “item,” he pulled the whole “Cersei is my one true love” card on our girl leaving her heartbroken in Winterfell.

The emotional whiplash fans experienced was almost too much to handle.

Then again, some people think there’s more than meets the eye.

I guess we’ll have to see in the last two episodes of the entire series—I’m going to vomit.
