Game of Thrones: Jaime and the Blackfish

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 07 The Broken Man

Jaime attempts to parley with the Blackfish, warning him that the Lannisters will show no mercy to the Tullys if they do not surrender the castle. The Blackfish is not intimidated by Jaime’s threats and dares him to try and seize the castle, as they still have two years worth of provisions stockpiled.

BLACKFISH: I assume you’re here to fulfill the vow you gave my niece. I don’t see Sansa and Arya.
JAIME: I don’t have them.
BLACKFISH: Pity. Do you wish to resume your captivity? Then why are you here?
JAIME: You know why I’m here. This castle belongs to House Frey. You’re trespassing. In the name of King Tommen, I order you to surrender or–
BLACKFISH: Or you’ll kill Edmure? My nephew’s marked for death no matter what. Hang him and be done with it.
JAIME: It won’t stop with Edmure. You’ll force me to storm the castle. Hundreds will die.
BLACKFISH: Hundreds of mine. Thousands of yours. If you can breach the walls.
JAIME: We’ll breach them and kill every last one of you. But if you surrender, I’ll spare the lives of your men. On my honor.
BLACKFISH: Your honor? Bargaining with oathbreakers is like building on quicksand.
JAIME: The war is over, ser. Why sacrifice living men to a lost cause?
BLACKFISH: As long as I’m standing, the war is not over. This is my home. I was born in this castle and I’m ready to die in it. So you can either attack or try to starve us out. We have enough provisions for two years. Do you have two years, Kingslayer?
JAIME: You clearly have no intention of saving your men’s lives. Why did you come treat with me?
BLACKFISH: Sieges are dull. And I wanted to see you in person, get the measure of you.
JAIME: Well, now you have.
BLACKFISH: Aye, now I have. I’m disappointed.
