Jaime Lannister season 8, ‘Game of Thrones’
This podcast is hosted by Eric and Liz Prugh. The two are married and use drinking wine and talking about ‘Game of Thrones’ as their date night. Because of the TV series’ insanely long hiatus, the pair look back at some of the most intricate storylines, characters, and myths in the world of Westeros. Tune in as this geeky couple breaks down the mythologies and theories surrounding George R. R. Martin’s ‘Game of Thrones’ series.
Season 8 of Game of Thrones premieres Sunday, April 14 on HBO, and the trailer has already sent fans’ theories whirling with what’s going to happen to their favorite characters. Leading up to the premiere, we’re going to break down the each leading character in the series: history not shown in the show (but canon), their journey from season 1 to now, and how their character’s arc will end.
First up? Sir Jaime Lannister. Jaime has become one of the most beloved characters in the series, starting with throwing a young Bran Stark from a tower, to leaving his evil sister Queen Cersei to go fight with the Starks and Danaerys Targaryen against the Army of the Dead. Dare we say, fans are actually rooting for the former bad boy?
In this podcast, we break down:
- How King Aerys, “The Mad King”, hated Tywin Lannister, and why he knighted Jaime to spite Tywin
- Who Jaime was betrothed to before he joined the King’s Guard (hint: It wasn’t his sister-lover, but someone equally neurotic.)
- Evidence that supports Jaime could be the Prince that was Promised—not Jon Snow or Dany Targaryen
- The lie that Tywin made Jaime tell Tyrion
- How George R.R. Martin created the character to explore the idea of redemption
- and more!
