Season 7 of Game of Thrones has been absolutely wild. With just a handful of episodes before the series concludes forever, the action and pace has been amped up to 100. One of the ways that Game has been delivering is through long awaited reunions; the Starks are together in Winterfell, Dany and Jon have met, and long lost characters even showed back up. But it turns out that Tyrion could have had a major reunion last week, but it was cut. Sure, he talked to Jaime for the first time since his escape from King's Landing, but he was originally also supposed to have a chat with his old buddy Bronn.
This news comes to us from Bronn actor Jerome Flynn, who just revealed that he was supposed to originally have a scene with Tyrion in King's Landing. He said,
My Westerosi FOMO is through the roof right now.
While we didn't get to see Bronn and Tyrion have some good old fashioned witty banter last episode, there certainly seems to be hope for the future. Jerome Flynn's comment to THR seems to tease their eventual reunion, which probably means that neither character will be biting the dust in Season 7's final two episodes.
Perhaps the reason for Bronn and Tyrion's reunion is tied to Dany's dragons. While Bronn bravely manned Qyburn's scorpion to battle Drogon in the Loot Train Battle, he made it clear to Jaime that his contract with the Lannisters is over if it come to a battle against dragons in King's Landing.
And for Tyrion, the stills for this Sunday's penultimate episode seems to tease that he may actually mount one of the dragons in the future. This fan theory has been making the rounds on the web for a few years now, and Tyrion was somehow able to free the dragons last season. And if Bronn sees the writing is on the wall for Dany to win, then he'll likely jump ship.
Jaime and Bronn's relationship was one of the plot points that brought much needed levity to Game of Thrones in past seasons. The two are able to be totally honest with each other about their intentions, although they certainly have a close friendship. But it's just not close enough that Bronn was willing to give his life to battle The Mountain.
