Kingslayer got his ass beaten down by Brien and it didn't seem very hard for her. Sucks he gets all this hype as being the GOAT sword guy and he can't even deliver.

He has been malnourished and mistreated since his capture, the show tends to underrate what POWs go through especially with Jaime who is the show's pretty face. In truth he is a ragged skinny man with broken bones and full of half healed scars by now.

and his wrists were chained together. Brienne couldn't defeat a weakened, tied-up prisoner. She failed.

Good point! I remember reading how Vikings and large armies totally feared the Mongols. Even when the Mongols literally were traveling hundreds of miles by horse they could decimate anything in their path like army ants to other insects. I recall much of it was their organization and great use of small horses. Ironically, when you compare it to the movie, they had the best immune system known to man as well.

I would have to believe the elite fighters of the Mongols, who fought Ninja's, Knights and who knows what else, using a smaller sword which was better for close fighting, would take out the best Knight around.

Good point Dunksby and LLJ

Brienne pretty much kicked Jaimes ass. They did not shoot that well. He was supposed to be really testing her even though he was held back. She was toying with him after the first few seconds.

Lets conveniently forget that Brienne was not allowed to hurt Jaime.

At no point was she toying with him. She had a completely stonefaced fearful look throughout the fight. From the start when Jaime is toying with her telling her what she's doing wrong, to the end when Jaime starts to lose strength when the Bolton's arrive.

She literally looked down on him with pity and knocked his sword aside with dismissal. He got his ass kicked. Which is why the riders said it looked like she was getting the best of him.

Dont see what you want to see. That was clearly filmed to show him getting flat out outclassed. Surely its because he wasnt 100%...and was chained. But dude was down on his knees with her not even taking him serious after the start.

It wasnt written like that in the books...but they sure as hell shot it that way.

Yeah I did not like the way they portrayed that fight. Jaime didn't even come close to taking down Brienne. In the books it was a much more even match, even with Jaime chained and starving.

True.
I was curious as to why the book crew didn't have her ranke a little higher depite him being emanciated and all. He still was on top of his annoying game but I understand him not really hanging tough with the sword. He impresses me as the type that doesn't forget things like that.

Hey Carmello was fasting for like a week before KG did his Jaime imitation and annoyed him. Could you imagine if Robb's boys had twitter and posted pics of Jaime getting his head handed to him under the caption: Queen slayed.

i would imagine that dothraki wouldnt fare all that well against knights from westeros. jorah mormount gave a little demonstration when he fought that dothraki while he had his steel armor. we aint cutting down limes here, no sir, armor>dothrakis close combat weapon.

plus the army dhaenrys bought is more badass than dothraki.
