If you've been following the plot of TV show Game Of Thrones, you'll know exactly who's worth rooting for and who should be fed to the direwolves. But when it comes to Jaime Lannister, we're all stumped (no pun intended - we've seen his severed hand).
Here's a guy who slayed the very king he was assigned to protect and who's fathered all those kids his sister passes off as legitimately royal. And yet, he's done honourable things, things that have cost him his hand, his freedom and almost his life. Is his grey more black or white? We've got Nikolaj Coster-Waldau himself (who plays Jaime) to present his case.
|ON ONE HAND....||ON THE OTHER...|
|He tried to kill an eight-year-old|
Jaime, caught in a compromising position by little Bran, heartlessly shoves the boy out the high-tower window, down to
possible death, with a smile and a quip. And that's just episode one!
He's sleeping with his twin sister
He's done terrible things
He's killed a king
He's defending a sadist
He saved a woman when he didn't have to
He's a loyal lover
He was protecting his peeps
His intentions were good
He's missing one hand
Catch season 4 of Game of Thrones on HBO Defined on Sundays at 9pm
