GoT Creators Reveal The Brutal AF Words Jaime Actually Used To Make Brienne Cry

They were used to "help provoke Brienne's grief".

There were a lot of things that let fans down when it comes to the final season of Game of Thrones, but seeing Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) leave Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) had to be one of the hardest scenes to watch.

Now, the GoT showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have revealed more details from behind the scenes of that controversial final moment between the pair and they’re absolutely heartbreaking.

We know that when GoT first started, Jaime was a cruel, selfish character who regularly slept with his sister Cersei. However, he began to change after meeting Brienne in season 2.

At first, the pair didn’t get along, but they slowly found themselves trusting and respecting each other. They were separated for a few seasons but their bond was always strong.

When Jaime left King’s Landing and his sister to fight in the North, fans were hopeful that it signalled a huge change in his character.

Then in the fourth episode of season eight, he and Brienne slept together, but it was just moments after that things went downhill.

Jaime hears that Cersei is in danger and decides to leave Winterfell and help her. He breaks Brienne’s heart in his final scene with her and it’s now revealed that their goodbye was even harsher than we thought.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Benioff and Weiss revealed in the home video commentary that there was a line that wasn’t in the script, nor in the show, that Coster-Waldau said to Christie to “help provoke Brienne’s grief”.

In his brutally classic Jaime way, he told her, “I don’t love you. No one loves you.”

While the line didn’t make the final cut, it definitely added to the pair’s performance in the scene.

Had the line been included fans would have been even more heartbroken than they already were and would have thought even worse of Jaime than they did.

It would have also undone all the lovely moments between them, including the scene where Jaime knights Brienne before the Battle of Winterfell.

Benioff and Weiss might have made a lot of mistakes, but at least they didn’t include this one.

The Mandalorian's Baby Yoda Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving With These Memes

"Crying because I'll never hold Baby Yoda's weird little green claw."

The Mandalorian quickly became one of my favourite shows of the year thanks to the inclusion of the adorable Baby Yoda.

I love Baby Yoda, I would do anything for him and I’m not the only one.

And now episode four of The Mandalorian has brought a delightful Baby Yoda meme to life and it’s perfect.

Some say the meme reminds them of Kermit the frog passive-aggressively minding his own business, while others think it reminds them of themselves.

Behold Baby Yoda drinking from a mug:

According to Vanity Fair, Werner Herzog, who stars in the show as The Client is responsible for saving the puppet version of Baby Yoda after seeing The Mandalorian creator and showrunner Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni removing the puppet from set to prepare to shoot a blank slate so they could add him in digitally if the puppet wasn’t convincing enough.

“You are cowards,” he declared. “Leave it.”

Seriously, how could anyone doubt the power of Baby Yoda?

Now, fans are getting upset about the lack of Baby Yoda merchandise with Favreau reportedly wanting to hold off on making any products in case the existence of the character was leaked early.

The Walt Disney company tells Vanity Fair there are plans to bring out more products in coming weeks, however, at the moment the only real official piece of merchandise is this T-shirt.

Hasbro also confirmed they will not have toys ready for Christmas and we’ll have to wait until 2020 before getting our hands on them.

However, creators on Etsy are already capitalising on the popularity of the character by making crocheted Baby Yoda, felt dolls as well as things like Christmas ornaments featuring the character, sweatshirts and much more.

Gina Carano, who stars in episode four of The Mandalorian told the publication Baby Yoda brings warmth to a show that focuses on a character who prides himself on his lack of feeling, “That just raises the emotional level and the stakes… The Mandalorian and that being’s relationship is really cool to watch.”

And it’s true, we now care so much more about the faceless Mandalorian because he cares so much about the little guy.

But seriously, if Baby Yoda doesn’t get to live happily ever after, I am rioting.

The First Married At First Sight Teaser Is Here For Your Daily Dose Of Cringe

"I’ll never be the same."

Viewers have been treated to their first teaser for next year’s season of Married At First Sight and it’s just as cringeworthy as you’d expect.

The ad was released by Channel Nine on Sunday revealing a number of the brides and grooms as they wander through an enchanted forest.

It then sees the couples walk through a ‘Tunnel of Love’ which looks a little creepy, but is soon lit up with fairy lights – fairy lights make everything less creepy right?

It becomes very dramatic and almost Twilight-esque as different men and women find their matches and kiss, with one couple lifted off the ground. The pair spin around as they smooch and are lifted all the way into the night sky with a very dramatic full moon behind them.

Watch it here:

Fans have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the teaser and it’s very mixed.

One fan wrote on the Married At First Sight Facebook page, “Another [season] of beautiful people who reckon they cannot find love… When are they going to pick normal people?”

Another added, “This promo video reminds me of one of those odd and slightly confusing perfume [ads],” and I’d have to agree. Another user seemingly read my mind when they wrote, “Are they vampires in a teen franchise movie?”

Someone else wrote, “I’m still trying to recover IQ points from the last one. I’ll never be the same, I’m traumatised and tainted for life.”

Woman’s Day reports Elizabeth Sobinoff, who appeared in the 2019 season of Married At First Sight, will return to our screens as an intruder in the next season.

The mag also reports Jules Robinson and Cam Merchant will return, not as contestants, but as last season’s success story. The pair recently tied the knot for real with A Current Affair filming the whole thing for Channel Nine.

Daily Mail reports Elizabeth has been set up with Seb Guilhaus, a professional sportsman, and it’s believed they’re “still going strong”. The publication also reports that Guilhaus is an actor, how convenient.

It appears as though Guilhaus had a StarNow page, but it’s since been taken down.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to watch the madness unfold next year.
