Could Jaime Lannister himself be a Brienne/Jaime shipper too?! 

While a few have latched onto Brienne's (Gwendoline Christie) lovingly disgusted glances in the direction of Tormund, no one could possibly forget the obvious love shared between her and Jaime Lannister during their long and eventful road trip back in season three. 

This week, the unlikely pair reunited, and according to an interview with TVLine, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau confirmed that the two of them are totally in love (OK, that's our phrasing, but still), even if we may never see them actually happen on screen. 

"There's no question you see that in this scene: There is more between them," he says. "Clearly, there is something going on between Jaime and Brienne, and clearly it's something they can't act on. Maybe in a very secret moment. But they would never verbalize it."

Of course, their love is basically impossible given the fact that both Jaime and Brienne have pledged their lives to other people. 

"It's less to do about their relationship, more about their own personal journey as human beings," Coster-Waldau told the site. "Everything they do, they're following someone else's agenda all the time--by choice. ... In a weird way, someone else's agenda or feelings always come before [Brienne and Jaime's] own. I'm not even sure that they would allow themselves to go to that place." 

Probably the biggest problem is that they're fighting for two different sides, and if necessary, both Jaime and Brienne would be willing to kill each other. 

"There's no question that if it comes to that, they'll both do it," he says. "And obviously she's going to kill him in an instant."

If we can't see them love each other, then we guess we'll settle for an epic fight, so bring it on!

Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
