According to the novel, Catelyn released Jaime after hearing the news about the alleged killing of Bran and Rickon. That was the reason which made her do that, in hope to save her daughters. See more »
[Jaime and Brienne are on their way to King's Landing. Jaime keeps teasing Brienne while she leads him to the river]
It's a long way to King's Landing. Might as well get to know one another. Have you known many men? I suppose not. Women? Horses? Aha!
[Jaime winces in pain when Brienne forces him to kneel down near a boat, because she spotted people passing nearby on a bridge]
I didn't mean to give offense, My Lady. Forgive me.
Brienne of Tarth:
Your crimes are past forgiveness, Kingslayer.
Why do you hate me so ...

We need to line up the chess pieces at some point. Theon is convinced that the two brothers are dead, burned to a crisp, even though they have escaped. Catelyn has betrayed her son. All her talk of the necessity is just that. I know that somehow we are to see the wisdom of what she does, but I don't see it. The Lassiters are as cruel as can be and it is really hard to imagine any compassion on their parts. Of course, with Tyrion in a command position, there is internal hemorrhaging going on. It's interesting that despite his limitations and physical size, no one dares take a shot at him. Now we have Jon Snow, captured by the Wildings along with his comrade, being driven across the icy wastes. Arya and her friends have managed to get away with the help of her benefactor. King Joffrey has bought into the idea that he is a warrior. Tyrion laughs at the thought. Jaime is in a canoe being paddled down the river. Bring on the last two episodes.
