Season 8 finale of Game of Thrones was released several weeks ago and it is safe to say that most of the fans were disappointed how the story turned out. Although the events of the finale itself word were not illogical, fans complained that the storyline was too rushed and it did not end certain characters arcs very well.
Jamie and Brienne arc
For example, although Brienne and Jaime were reunited in Winterfell, the ending somehow disappointed the shippers of the pair. It seems highly inconsistent that at first, Jamie moved on from his sister Cersei Lannister, and then later returned to her in the Game of Thrones finale.
Jamie slept with Brienne in Winterfell but ended up changing his mind and returning to die with Cersei in King’s landing. The last Game of Thrones episode also showed Brienne writing his achievements in the White Book where memoirs of the noble and brave men of Westeros are recorded.
This scene revealed a major GOT spoiler. Viewers must have noticed that in this scene, wedding music was playing in the background which seemed an odd choice considering how solemn and grief-stricken Brienne was at the moment.
Djawadi speaks out on the possible alternate ending of GOT
The music composer of the series, Ramin Djawadi, has confirmed that he chose the music for the scene intentionally.
“It’s just a hint of what their relationship — if they had stayed together, if he was still alive — what it could have been. What they could have become. That’s why I put that in there.”
Fans will also remember that the song sounded quite similar to what was played at Robb Stark and Talisa’s wedding.
Ramin further explained,
“I just threw that in there because I thought it would be a subtle nod to their relationship. When she sits there and she thinks about him and writes down all the things he had done, the second half is the ‘Honour’ theme, but yeah a big chunk of that [song] is the wedding theme.”
