Warning: The night is dark and full of spoilers (specifically from Game of Thrones season 8, episode 4).
There was a lot to unpack in the hit HBO show’s latest episode, The Last of the Starks. Fortunately, there were plenty of high points (Ghost survived! Tormund has wine! Gendry becomes a Lord!), and one of our favorites was when Brienne of Tarth and Sir Jaime Lannister finally got to knock boots.
But what did actress Gwendoline Christie think about that scene?
“I haven’t been certain of the relationship between Jaime and Brienne,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “It hasn’t been a love story. It’s been this strange relationship between a man and woman that’s never been able to find its true form.”
