Brienna's "Last" word

What do you think the word she screamed was?
Anyone think we should have a poll?
Just in case theres already a thread i wont add one but i thought possible "last" word could have been:
Tarth
Father,
Mother
Mercy
Arya (Sp?) perhaps the only word that could grant her reprieve from hanging as everyone thinks she's dead.

Re: Brienna's "Last" word

Interestingly enough, "Thanks!" is Brienne's last word.

Re: Brienna's "Last" word

I'm not sure what she called out but I think UnCat already knows Arya is or was still alive at the time of the red wedding because the outlaws question Merret Frey on wether he saw Sandor at the wedding with either a boy or girl. still, yelling out Arya might of gotten a reprieve because they likely want to know where she is now.

Re: Brienna's "Last" word

I go for the "Ice" theory as Stoneheart conveniently asks her the name of the sword and says no whe she says "Oathkeeper". It was right after this that she's ordered to be hanged. Question to those who actually put forward the theory: Does she even know that Oathkeeper was forged from Ice? Did Jaime know and tell het?

Re: Brienna's "Last" word

I think Brienne does know that Oathkeeper was Ice becuase Jaime told her she'd be defending Ned Stark's blood with Ned Stark's sword or something like that.

Re: Brienna's "Last" word

But when Uncat says "NO" to Oathkeeper, I think it is just so she can be mocking by calling it Oathbreaker not because UnCat knows it is Ice.

Well, she does take a real hard and long look at the sword before asking Brienne its name, which I thought was odd when I first read it and put two and two together.

Re: Brienna's "Last" word

Well I doubt she could look at it and tell since it adds that new fire engine red tinge to the old Valyrian Steel. But I guess her zombie powers could help her.

Re: Brienna's "Last" word

I think Brienne finally said the word that we've all been wanting someone to say to Catelyn... it begins with a b and ends in itch.

Re: Brienna's "Last" word

At heart, I am a romantic... I think she called "Jaime." (which is what she did while semi conscious)

And I reckon (no evidence) that she DOES die (ie the word she cries doesn't save her and she is hanged)... and THEN!!! Thoros (the "pink priest") breathes her back to life!!!!

Regards,

Re: Brienna's "Last" word

Any clue as to whose arms she had painted on her shield? Is this even important because GRRM does spend some time on this. I mean she even spends the night in Maidenpool for the woman to paint it for her.

Re: Brienna's "Last" word

The device on Brienne's shield seems to be from the short story of Dunk... don't know the name of it. This was discussed somewhere, but I can't find it.

I just reread Brienne's last POV.

Perhaps she screams "Jaime." Doing so could be to proclaim her affection for the Kingslayer because when she dreams early in the chapter and thinks she's going to die she screams "Jaime." On the other hand, she may call out Jaime's name as affirmation that she will choose to kill Jaime for Stoneheart.

The thing is... she's looking at Podrick Payne and thinking how unfair it is for him to die (she could care less about Ser Hyle Hunt). So I think she thinks of something to say that may gain a reprieve for Pod...
