In the books, Jaime and Brienne do meet again, but not in the way you might be hoping. Lady Stoneheart, the reanimated, vengeful corpse of Cat Stark, tasks Brienne with bringing Jaime to her, so that she might exact revenge on him. Brienne does this, luring Jaime to Stoneheart, but that’s where their fates leave off in the book. Does Stoneheart kill Jaime? Does she force Brienne to? Does Brienne turn on Stoneheart?
Whatever it is that happens, it’s unlikely we’ll see it on the show. This is because evidence strongly suggests that Lady Stoneheart will not be appearing on the show at all, meaning they’ll have to come up with another way for Jaime and Brienne to intersect. Maybe they’ll fall in love then? It’s been strongly implied on the show that Brienne loves Jaime, but he doesn’t feel the same way about her. Maybe if Jaime finally sees how terrible Cersei is, he’ll turn his eyes toward Brienne, but for now we’re going to stick with the basic outline in the books, which suggest that Brienne remains firmly in the friend zone.
