Jaime & Bronn Took A Swim During A Dragon Battle On 'Game Of Thrones'

by Allison Piwowarski

On Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones, a battle to really rival all battles occurred between the Lannister army and Daenerys', well, fire breathing dragons. It was gruesome and it was awesome, but there was one cliffhanger that we need to talk about. Before becoming fire-roasted, Jaime and Bronn jumped into the lake beside the dragon they were avoiding. So, what will happen to Jaime and Bronn on Game of Thrones? While it looks like they escaped a heated death, they may not be in the clear.

There was a lot of hype about the Battle of the Bastards fight in Season 6, where Jon Snow and Ramsey Bolton came face-to-face and battled in one of the most suffocating scenes the series has ever had. While that was all fine and dandy, however, it was built up. Fans knew it was coming, unlike Season 7, Episode 4's Dragon Battle (just go with it). While we knew that Daenerys was willing to do just about anything to stop Cersei from getting gold so she can "repay her debt," who knew that meant pulling out the high-level artillery in such a drastic way.

In what can only be described as a blood (and fire) bath, the Lannister army was roasted time and time again by Dany and her untouchable weapons. There was a moment that Drogon almost became a casualty, but no arrow seems to be big enough to really take down something so powerful. Bronn and Jaime learned that the hard way.

Coming face-to-face with the fire inside, Jaime almost became toasted by Drogon before Bronn, who previously shot Drogon, came out of nowhere and hurled the two men into the nearby water. Is it enough to save them? Or will it just cause them to drown. They were weighed down with their armor and accessories.

It feels unlikely that we'll get an off-camera death (or Death By Drowning) for Jaime and Bronn. With that said, if Episode 5 chooses to pick up mid-fire-breathing-dragon moment, we may see these two meet a dark fate.

For now, let's not count them out. If anything (or anyone) is going to kill Jaime, it's not going to be a heavily-weighted suit of armor.
