Uhh, Did Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Just Drop A Bombshell For ‘GoT’ S8?

Ohhhhhh shit. It looks like really, really bad things are coming to Game of Thrones.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime, has dropped the ~possible~ bombshell that Season 8 will see some of your faves killed off and turned into wights.

Speaking to Esquire, the Danish actor (and babe) let slip that he reckons next season will see main characters unwittingly joining the army of the dead.

“The fear is that I would be turned into one of those undead. That would suck. You know some of the main characters are going to get turned. There are going to be some blue-eyed main characters running around. And, god, I hope it’s not me. That’s three hours of make-up in the morning. I know that if David Benioff and Dan Weiss read this, they’ll go, ‘Oh, yes we will’.”

He COULD be joking, but he could also be on to something. And we really, really don’t want to see it. Undead Tormund and Beric, perhaps? Undead Brienne? Undead – *gasps* – Starks?

We already know, per Kit Harington, that next season is going to be “a bloodbath”.


The long-ass Esquire interview [read it all HERE] also goes deep into Jaime’s state of mind in the events leading to Jaime leaving King’s Landing. If you recall, Cersei threatened to prevent him leaving her by way of brute force, but Jaime calls her bluff: “I don’t believe you.”

Coster-Waldau says Jaime wasn’t just calling BS on Cersei’s murder threat, but was basically ending their relationship.

“When he says, ‘I don’t believe you,’ it’s not just that he doesn’t believe she’s going to kill him. For me, at least, it was more [like], ‘That’s it, I don’t love you anymore. You’re on your own.’ Why it took him so long, god only knows, but he got there in the end … clearly their whole lives Jaime’s been about her, what’s right for her, how can I stay close to her. There’s a moment of disbelief that he’s actually walking away from her.”

Took him long enough. Ride north to Winterfell, my sweet King Slayer, and make beautiful fighting babies with Brienne before you both probably die.
