Brom had never been good with "goodbye." In fact, he'd been something close to "abysmal" with giving any sort of farewell, be it short-term or long-term. It was something he kept close to his heart, that inability. Most saw simply the Rider Brom or the Leader of the Varden Brom; a strong man, ineffable, not a man to be held back by a simple concept.
Eragon and Murtagh run into one another between the events of Eldest and Brisingr and are forced to verbally confront the battle that neither of them want to have. Spoilers for Eldest.
