Lena Headey plays Jaime’s twin sister, Queen Regent Cersei Lannister. Gwendoline Christie plays Brienne of Tarth, a female soldier loyal to Lady Catelyn Stark. At King’s Landing, Jaime is reunited with his family after a year of captivity by the Stark noble family. Lord Tywin presents Jaime with a Valyrian sword. He demands that Jaime leave the kingsguard and marry in order to become his heir. In order to remain close to Cersei, Jaime refuses, and his father informs him that he is disinherited. Cersei presents Jaime with a golden prosthetic to replace his amputated right hand, but indicates that she has taken other lovers and their relationship is no longer the same.
