I think it is safe to say that Cersei Lannister will not be happy until both her brother Tyrion and his wife Sansa are both headless and she has been presented with their heads on a silver platter. She believes without an ounce of doubt in her mind that those are the two responsible for the death of her beloved son Joffrey.
She even goes as far as to ask her brother (who also happens to be her lover and Joffrey’s father) if she asked him to, if he would head out right now and hunt down Sansa Stark. I believe his answer is not quite what one would have expected.
Jaime comes to Brienne and offers her a gift. Not only does he present her with a brand new suit of armor, he gives her a gift that no one would have possibly imagined; he gave her the sword that his father had presented to him, the Valyrian Steel sword that his father Tywin had reforged from the sword of the late Ned Stark.
Now, he has a new mission for her. He tells Brienne that he promised that he would return the Stark girls to their mother Lady Stark. Even though Lady Stark is dead, Jaime is a man of his word. He tells Brienne that it is likely that Arya is already dead, thankfully she’s not; however, there is still plenty of time for her to track to Sansa and get her somewhere safe.
So now, she takes her sword and gets ready to embark on her new mission with her new sword, of which she has named Oathkeeper. Jaime tells her that she is to take Podrick with her as her squire.
She tells him that the boy would only slow her down; however, Jaime tells her that she would be doing the boy a favor by taking him with her, and Podrick assures her that he will not slow her down.
With a little reluctance, she agrees to take Pod with her. With that, Brienne and Jaime share an awkward goodbye as she rides off on her mission.
There is clearly something between these two. Unfortunately, this is something that may very well never come to pass.
