Beneath the gold, the bitter steel.
Friendship, it turns out, can have a price beyond sapphires, or all the gold in Casterly Rock. Marriages in Westeros may be sealed with money. But friendship between men and women can be sealed only by those men and women themselves. That’s a more human bond, a more fallible one. But unlike any of the other pairings in Game of Thrones, Jaime and Brienne truly know each other, and all each others’ crimes and kindnesses, and want to stand with each other anyway.
