“I don’t really like to call myself a brand, and I don’t like to think of myself as a brand. I’m a singer, a songwriter, a musician and a performer. And an actress, and all the other things that I do. When you add it all together, some might call it a brand, but that’s not my focus.” —Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter (September 4, 1981)
I cannot wait for more of Brienne and her men. First up, we’ve got her newly minted bromance with Sandor Clegane. They’re totally gonna be battle buddies and dote on the Stark sisters together. Next up, we’ve got too-cool-for-school Jaime Lannister ready to fuck loyalty with her. There will be so many more longing gazes and flirty banter now that they are finally on the same side. Everyone in Westeros will start a pool on if or when they’ll get together. Finally, we’ve got poor Tormund who will totally ignore that she’s already got a bestie and a love interest and sit at their lunch table to try to woo her. And let’s not forget Pod, her loyal squire and president of her fanclub. Brienne’s come such a long way from being rejected by dumb average men to being respected by one very nice guy and three of the most badass fighters in Westeros.
