Is Brienne On The Lannisters' Side?
No doubt we've all been watching and rewatching the Game of Thrones season 7 trailer #2. And we may have picked up something huge: what if Brienne is on the Lannister side now?
How did we come to this conclusion? Look at her clothing.
Although Brienne (and Pod!) only make a brief appearance in the trailer, the few seconds they're on screen is very telling. Brienne has had a change in wardrobe and it screams Lannister.
She's wearing an outfit with red leather and gold trim, trademark Lannister. This can only mean she's no longer on the Stark side, as we previously saw her swear an oath to Sansa. If anyone brought her over to the Lannister side, it's Jaime. After all, they do share a bond.
So, why would this happen? We know how strict Brienne is about her oaths; she wouldn't just let the Starks go for her own purposes. Sansa must have released Brienne from her vow.
This makes us question why Sansa would do this. We can point to one individual most recently seen creeping around the Winterfell crypts: Littlefinger. If Baelish finally got to Sansa as he intended to, she may have released Brienne from the oath. Following Littlefinger could spell out Sansa's doom; we've seen time and time again that he can't be trusted.
It's also possible that Sansa has already met her end, releasing Brienne automatically. Could this be Sansa Stark's last season? She said at the end of the trailer that the lone wolf dies. She would be going out on her own leaving the rest of the "wolves", or Starks by joining forces with Littlefinger.
What do you think? Could Brienne's change of garb be a clue for the entire season?
