How dare "Game of Thrones" defy the laws of gods and men and cut Tormienne footage? Put every minute on the Season 6 DVD or someone will be flayed!
As we approach Season 6, Episode 6, Brienne appears to be on her way to Riverrun, dispatched by Sansa to meet with Brynden Tully, aka the Blackfish. So Brienne may not even get more time with Tormund Giantsbane. He'll be crushed! They've only had maybe three or four glances between them (and she's never been comfortable with any of them), but fans immediately started shipping them -- and both Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) and Kristofer Hivju (Tormund) absolutely love it.
However, Christie told Entertainment Weekly that we missed out on one Brienne-Tormund scene, since they cut it from the show. She said it showed Sansa "going Mean Girls" on Brienne to tease her about Tormund's crush; "and you had the powerful warrior who's totally flustered," Christie said. Awwww. Seriously, though, between Jaime and Tormund, she's doing pretty well.
Hivju also mentioned some deleted scenes in his interview with ScreenCrush. (His shipper name for B&T is "Briemund the Tarth Bane") Here's part of that talk:
What was it like to play those scenes with Gwendoline Christie?
We had a lot of fun with it. She's a great actress and she's a walking, laughing machine. It was a day of doing that. Some of the scenes are deleted. But we had a lot of fun and nobody saw that coming.
What's in your deleted scenes?
Ah, you'll see when the extra material comes out. The only thing the show says about Tormund's family is he says in "Hardhome" that "Jon Snow is prettier than both my daughters." So he has kids, but we haven't seen him – he's been so occupied with war that he hasn't been able to think about girls. So finally there was a match for him walking in Castle Black.
Tormund's poor daughters. Then again, Jon Snow is prettier than everyone. Do you hope "Game of Thrones" includes more Tormienne moments? The showrunners rarely seem to react to what the fans want (except for their recent apology) but maybe they'll be inspired to write more Brienne/Tormund scenes in Season 7.
