After the Battle of Winterfell was won by the living, Brienne had sex Jaime, losing her virginity to him.
Tensions between the pair had been present ever since they first met seasons ago on the HBO show and so it was an event which delighted many fans who had predicted they would get together.
Now, Brienne star Gwendoline Christie has revealed what she really thought of the plot point.
“It was something that she consents to and I’m glad we see her leaving herself open and having an honest, emotional response to that — and recovering from it.
“And, ultimately, superseding her expectations and no longer being in service and protecting someone else but being in control.”
Things didn’t work out between Brienne and Jaime in the end and while she was crushed after he left her, she went on to achieve her dream job.
Brienne was named Lord Commander of the Kingsguard following Bran Stark’s (Isaac Hempstead Wright) appointment as king.
Gwendoline said: “What was my favourite point was that she gets the promotion that she’s always wanted. She is Lord Commander of the king’s guard. And how it ends is not about her relationship with a man, but about her fulfilling her destiny and her work.
“And that’s delighted me. That the woman goes back to work!”
Of course while Brienne’s story ended on a positive note, the same cannot be said for Jaime Lannister.
He left Brienne behind to return to his sister and lover Cersei in King’s Landing.
Brienne was left in tears at Winterfell as Jaime rode north to be reunited with Cersei.
Cersei and Jaime subsequently died in the Red Keep as the building fell around them during Daenerys Targaryen’s (Emilia Clarke) destruction of the city.
The Mother of Dragons went on to be slain by Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and he went Beyond the Wall after being banished back to the Night’s Watch.
There has been much speculation about what Jon would do next and now actor Kit has revealed what he thought of the moment.
He told The Hollywood Reporter: “[S]eeing him go beyond the Wall back to something true, something honest, something pure with these people he was always told he belongs with — the Free Folk — it felt to me like he was finally free.
“Instead of being chained and sent to the Wall, it felt like he was set free. It was a really sweet ending.
“As much as he had done a horrible thing [in killing Daenerys], as much as he had felt that pain, the actual ending for him was finally being released.”
