Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 08 No One
Brienne explains to Jaime that she has come to recruit the Blackfish and the Tully army for Sansa, but Jaime points out that he is currently besieged in Riverrun and refuses to surrender the castle. Brienne proposes that if she can convince the Blackfish to surrender the castle, then Jaime will allow him and the Tully army safe passage to the North. Jaime agrees to the plan, but gives Brienne until nightfall. She then returns Oathkeeper to Jaime, stating that she has completed her mission. Jaime, however, tells her that she can keep it, as Oathkeeper is hers and hers alone.
JAIME: What the hell are you doing here?
BRIENNE: I’ve come for the Blackfish.
JAIME: You’re welcome to have him.
BRIENNE: Lady Sansa desires to take her ancestral seat back from the Boltons and assume her rightful position as Lady of Winterfell.
JAIME: With what army does she plan on taking Winterfell?
BRIENNE: The Tully army.
JAIME: They’re a bit occupied at the moment.
BRIENNE: I was sent here to reclaim Riverrun currently defended by the Tully rebels, so you can see the conundrum.
BRIENNE: The Tullys are rebels because they’re fighting for their home?
JAIME: Riverrun was granted to the Freys by royal decree.
BRIENNE: As a reward for betraying Robb Stark and slaughtering his family.
JAIME: Exactly. We shouldn’t argue about politics.
BRIENNE: You’re a knight, Ser Jaime. I know there is honor in you. I’ve seen it myself.
JAIME: I’m a Lannister. Don’t ask me to betray my own house.
BRIENNE: I do no such thing. Take Riverrun without bloodshed. Ride south again with your mission complete and your army intact.
JAIME: What do you propose?
BRIENNE: Allow me to enter Riverrun under a flag of truce. Let me try to persuade the Blackfish to give up the castle.
JAIME: Why would he abandon his ancestral home?
BRIENNE: Because you’ll allow him to lead the Tully forces safely north.
JAIME: Have you ever met the Blackfish?
JAIME: He’s even more stubborn than you are. All right. Try to talk some sense into the old goat. He won’t listen, but his men might. Not everybody wants to die for someone else’s home.
BRIENNE: I need your word. If I persuade him to abandon the castle, you’ll grant a safe passage north.
JAIME: You have my word. You have until nightfall.
