Brienne: Seven blessings. I’m Brienne of Tarth. This is Podrick Payne.
The Hound: You want something?
Podrick: That’s Sandor Clegane. The Hound.
Brienne: You’re Arya Stark.
The Hound: I asked if you wanted something.
Brienne: I swore to your mother I would bring you home to her.
Arya: My mother’s dead.
Brienne: I know. I wish I could have been there to protect her.
Arya: You’re not a Northerner.
Brienne: No, but I swore a sacred vow to protect her.
Arya: Why didn’t you?
Brienne: She commanded me to bring Jaime Lannister back to King’s Landing.
The Hound: You’re paid by the Lannisters. You’re here for the bounty on me.
Brienne: I’m not paid by the Lannisters.
The Hound: No? Fancy sword you’ve got there. Where’d you get it? I’ve been looking at Lannister gold all my life. Go on, Brienne of fucking Tarth.Tell me that’s not Lannister gold.
Brienne: Jaime Lannister gave me this sword.
Arya: The Bloody Gate is 10 miles.
Brienne: I swore to your mother by the old gods and the new.
Arya: I don’t care what you swore.
The Hound: You heard the girl. She’s not coming with you.
Brienne: She is.
The Hound: You’re not a good listener. Valyrian steel? I always wanted some Valyrian steel.
Brienne: Come with me, Arya. I’ll take you to safety.
The Hound: Safety? Where the fuck’s that? Her aunt in the Eyrie is dead. Her mother’s dead. Her father’s dead. Her brother’s dead. Winterfell is a pile of rubble. There is no safety, you dumb bitch. You don’t know that by now, you’re the wrong one to watch over her.
Brienne: And that’s what you’re doing? Watching over her?
The Hound: Aye, that’s what I’m doing.
