Resolved Question: Why did Jaime leave
In Sunday’s Game of Thrones episode, titled "The Last of the Starks," Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth finally delivered on their long-awaited, seasons-long promise of a deeper romantic relationship. But not long after, Jaime took off, breaking Brienne’s heart.
Admittedly, it was rough to watch Jaime tell a crying Brienne of the things that he did for his sister, and was willing to do for his sister. But you might notice that none of the things he said were things he was currently willing to do. Everything was in the past tense.
“You think I’m a good man," Jaime says. "I pushed a boy out of a tower window, crippled him for life, for Cersei. I strangled my cousin with my own hands, just to get back to Cersei. I would’ve murdered every man, woman, and child in Riverrun, for Cersei. She’s hateful, and so am I.”
That doesn’t sound like someone coming to terms with what he is and embracing it—it sounds like someone full of regret, and ready to do whatever he can to make it right, even if it means the potential end of his life.
When you work for the vast majority of a show to transform a character, as the Game of Thrones team has with Jaime Lannister, it simply doesn’t make sense for the storytelling to suddenly abandon that. If Jaime were simply going back to support his sister, it would entirely diminish everything we’ve seen happen to his character since the moment Catelyn Stark sent him back to King’s Landing.

Resolved Question: Game of Thrones, list of
I just started watching GoT and I am at Season 1 Episode 9. I am starting to understand the lore behind GoT, however, I am really confused on the characters and the roles they play. I understand there are seven kingdoms, and that each kingdom has a ruling king/queen governing them. And that the overall ruler of the seven kingdoms sit on the iron throne. Can you list the major characters and what roles they play, whether they are a ruler of the kingdom, or something else.
All I know is that right now Joffrey is the king of the iron throne
