In case you're currently living off the grid, you lucky bastard, the series finale of "Game of Thrones" aired last night, and fans are fiercely divided: between those who are disappointed, and those who are extremely disappointed with a side of blind rage.
One of the more divisive moments in that 127-hour-long finale involved Ser Brienne of Tarth paying tribute to Jaime Lannister, one of the show's most lovable-and-hateable characters. The two share a particularly long and complicated history that culminated in Lannister making Brienne a knight, then took her virginity, breaking her heart and then abandoning her to go bang his sister. Typical!
But Brienne takes the high-ground in the finale, because someone had to, by recording Lannister's deeds in the Book of Brothers, which pays tribute to all the knights who served in the Kingsguard. With a feather quill in hand, Brienne honors Jaime by writing that he "died protecting his queen." This was generous of her, given their history and his incestuous love affair with blood-thirsty Cersei.
