Composer Ramin Djawadi has now confirmed that it was a deliberate creative move to evoke a 'what-could-have-been' picture of Jaime and Brienne's future in viewers' minds.

“It’s just a hint of what their relationship – if they had stayed together, if he was still alive – what it could have been, what they could have become. That’s why I put that in there," he said in an interview with Insider.

He added the song would be a "subtle nod to their relationship" and is happy that fans picked up on the music.

The song which plays during the scene is called 'The White Book' on the official season 8 soundtrack, and begins with the same melody as  'I Am Hers, She Is Mine', the song that played during Robb Stark and Talisa Maegyr's secret wedding ceremony, notes the same article.

While the first part of 'The White Book' plays the 'wedding theme', it changes to the 'honour theme' in the latter half.
