The way that I read Jaime is that he loves the art of swordsmanship. This is why I don't think he likes fighters as much as swordsmen, and would ever place them up on his list. The Cleganes are just brutes in Jaime's world, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't value them, or people that are good commanders either (for instance, his father or Ned).

For those that haven't read the books, in the HBO series, when Jaime kills the kid in the cell, he talks about Barristan Selmy using his sword like a paint brush and painted blood everywhere with it like an artist. In the book, that is the Black Fish, Cat's uncle and we'll meet him this season. Keep that in mind when you see him.

honestly though, i think warwick would make a pretty good tyrion. dinklage is great but my one gripe is he's too good looking. tyrion is supposed to be grotesque. warwick isn't ugly, but he's closer to tyrion looks wise.

Its looking like we'll be introduced to the Brotherhood next episode. Can't wait for that.

What about the likelihood we'll meet Strong Belwas this season?

"No comment on that one," Martin said with a smile.

Still hoping they find him fighting somewhere and take him in.
