With episodes passing by, the respect for our Kingslayer is increasing. The decisions he took, the moves he made to maintain the balance between good and evil has been pretty impressive. Not many people loved him in the beginning. Maybe some female fans had a thing for him in the beginning as he was smart, skilled and charming. That doesn't deny the fact that he was arrogant, ambitious and over-confident. To be frank, the act he did at the end of the very first episode of Season 1 was something that led to a war that killed many. Before pushing Bran, he said, "Things I do for love". Well, Jaime Lannister started a war for that love.
After watching Season 6, I kinda felt nostalgic and saw the old episodes. The usage of words by Jaime and their after effects were interesting. We could relate to many of them but here are two of them that were pretty shocking.
Words He Said To Tyrion
We all know why Bran is a cripple today. Accept it or not, the reason is Jaime Lannister. A day after Bran's fall when all the Lannister siblings gathered at the dinner table, Jaime said something that struck him down in Season 3. These were the lines.
Even if the boy lives, he'll be a cripple, a grotesque. Give me a good clean death any day. - Jaime Lannister
And who became a cripple in Season 3? You know the name. All the arrogance of Jaime Lannister was cut out along with his sword hand which made him cripple. Later, when he was given food, he refused to eat and wanted to starve himself to death. Why? He became a cripple and wanted a good clean death. Just the way he said in the lines above. This happened three years ago but here's something that happened recently in Season 6 finale.
Words He Said To Cersei
Even this scene dates back to Season 1 where he got hold of Cersei when she was worried about their dirty secret getting spilled. He said:
The boy won't talk. And if he does, I'll kill him. Him, Ned Stark, the king, the whole bloody lot of them, until you and I are the only people left in this world. - Jaime Lannister
Sometime I wonder if his words are magical. They just seem to happen most of the time. That whole bloody lot about which Jaime was talking did die. Only this time in Season 6, Cersei did the job. Now perhaps the entire Lannister family is gone except these two with no allies. Metaphorically, him and Cersei are the only people left in this world if not technically.
Most of the bad part in Jaime went away with his hand but a part where he madly loves Cersei is still there. I hope he lost it when he came to know about Cersei's demonic act and becomes that Valonqar everyone is expecting him to be. And he better make the right choice of words from now on.
