Jaime Lannister is my 2nd favorite character in the books……and is now one of my least favorite characters on the show.IMO its honestly just sad what they’ve done to his character on the show. He’s been weirdly mellowed out since season 4 (except the sept scene UGH) but now as of season 5 he’s just completely spineless, boring and extremely inconsistent “character”.
Ever since that awful sept scene aired, I was actually more worried that Cersei’s character was ruined. But now after watching the first four episodes of Season 5, I have to say that TV Cersei is one of the few characters that remains fairly close to her book counterpart and that they’re actually doing a pretty decent/good job just with *her* even though there are certain other changes to the King’s Landing storyline that I dislike. It just sucks because it could be SO SO much better but frankly I feel like these writers just have no clue what to do with Jaime anymore. Perhaps, they think it will be more shocking if Jaime rejects Cersei with his growth being more slow, but those type of ~shock~ moments just come across as hollow to me
