Rather than speculate, I thought it would be nice if we took a moment to reflect on some of the more compelling, or emotionally gripping parts of the novels.
Which moments, -however great or small-, resound with you, and why?
Let's not all jump to the Red Wedding, right off the bat. Here are a few of mine:
1. When Tywin renounces Jaime: A huge moment for my favourite Lannister, and it finally hit home that Jaime isn't anywhere near as much Tywin's son as his Father had always hoped. (as opposed to Tyrion).
2. When Jaime returns to Harrenhal to rescue Brienne: "Her name is Brienne, maid of Tarth. You are stil a maiden, arne't you?" "Yes." "Good, I only resuce maidens." - Another huge moment for him. It showed he could, and would change, but not without sacrificing 'who he was' in the sense of his personality.
3. The kiss between Pennny and Tyrion below deck on the ship from Volantis. - I don't have a huge reason for this, I just felt terribly sorry for her the entire time, and I thought this was sweet.
I probably have many more, but these are the three that have sprung to memory.
