Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says our favorite characters might end up joining the Army of the Dead in season 8

Game of Thrones has always played with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau‘s character, Jaime Lannister. We started off absolutely hating him, and now we almost saw him die twice in Season 7, and most of us flinched. Season 7 was a major shift for his character, and in the end, we saw him leave Cersei, for the first time ever, and head north.

Nikolaj spoke to Esquire, and he seems to have a fair idea about how things will go for Jaime next season, and he even believes that some of our favorite characters will end up in the Army of the Dead. Read on!

He spoke about Jaime finally leaving at the end of Season 7 finale, we see him say to Cersei, ‘I don’t believe you’. He spoke about what it meant :

“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.”

He talked a little more about why Jaime left :

“He’s like, “I have to do this.” He truly believes that we all have to fight this thing. This is humanity at stake. We’ll either have living or dead conquering the world. You see him covering up his gold hand, and he knows he has to get to some sort of commander—whether it be Jon Snow or someone else in charge”

“Otherwise, he’s going into enemy territory, and he’s quite recognizable with that gold hand. If he wants to even get to battle before he’s killed by Stark soldiers, he’s going to need a bit of luck. You’d hope he can get there. But who knows, I might read Episode One of Season Eight and it says Jaime meets a Stark soldier and he’s killed. It would be so disappointing, I make it so far through Season Eight and it’s like, “Yes!” “

Nikolaj seems to believe that while some major characters will join the Army of the Dead, he wouldn’t want that for Jaime :

“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 was also asked if he thinks Jaime is definitely headed North, to which he replied :

“I do think he’s heading north, unless he’s tricking us all and goes south and just says, “I’m getting the hell out of here.” The double-double-double cross. “I lost my hand, what am I even going to do up there?” He could just be in a row boat getting away.”

“No, I do believe that he’s joining them in the north. You know there are all these swords of Valyrian steel, and you would think those five would all be somewhere in the mix.”

We sure do hope so! Where do you think Jaime is headed, and what do you think is his fate? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Jon Snow’s Direwolf, Ghost returned in the latest episode but fans weren’t thrilled

The direwolf Ghost is back in the latest episode but fans aren't thrilled

The second episode of season 8 saw the return of the good boy, the good boy being the best thing that has ever happened to Jon Snow AKA his direwolf Ghost. We last saw the direwolf in season 6 during Jon Snow’s resurrection scene. This was when he curled up, patiently waiting for Jon to stop being dead. ‘Twas a scene where a lot of boxes of tissue were passed around.

So there was rightfully a fair amount of anticipation building up to the moment when Jon and Ghost would reunite. Calling that scene in episode two a reunion would be a bit of a stretch. Fans are understandably pissed because they feel they’ve been done dirty. Which they have. I mean, look at this.

There was no build up to this scene, NOTHING. He’s just there, like an afterthought. While this scene sorely disappointed, fan reactions didn’t.

The direwolf was supposed to have some screen time back in season 7 but he finally didn’t make the cut. Turns out, CGI direwolfs are quite expensive, and with dragons hogging the limelight and the budget, there just wasn’t room for more.

So how annoyed were you with this scene in episode two? Don’t hold back, let us know how you really feel in the comments down below!

Daenerys Targaryen tries to make a friend in Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 2

Daenerys Targaryen tries to make a friend in Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 2

Daenerys Targaryen has been seen throughout the show to be someone who can be ruthless, as well as soft towards the ones that she loves. In the latest episode, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” we kind of got to see both sides of her. Before you proceed, SPOILER ALERT! Consider yourself warned!

Since the beginning of this season, we have seen an uneasy air of tension between Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark. In episode 2, we see Jorah Mormont speak some sense into a hot-headed Daenerys, who wouldn’t listen to her usual voice of reason, Tyrion Lannister. With Jorah’s suggestion, Daenerys extends an olive branch to Sansa.

We see her tell Sansa about why they’re similar, being women that have overcome a lot of difficulties and the oppression of men. Sansa quips by saying she thinks Daenerys has manipulated Jon, to which Daenerys says she’s in the North fighting Jon’s war.

The pair seem to be getting along quite well until Sansa asks Daenerys if she’ll let the North be free, and Daenerys doesn’t seem to take well to that idea. That conversation isn’t finished, however, so looks like we might get to see it in the aftermath of the battle that’s coming to Winterfell.

Arya Stark and Gendry share a moment in Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

Arya Stark and Gendry share a moment in Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 2 dropped today, and we got a lot more than expected, yet again. While the focus of this episode rotated between characters frequently, Arya Stark seemed to be getting a lot more done in this episode than most other characters. Before we proceed: SPOILER ALERT! Consider yourself warned.

Now, Arya has been in a lot of bad places throughout the course of the show, but Gendry doesn’t know this. We see Arya staring at a sweaty and hardworking Gendry as he forges weapons. The pair have a chat and Gendry tries telling Arya she should hide away rather than fight the dead. Arya, being herself, shows off her aim, proving a point.

Gendry is later seen bringing Arya the weapon she asked him to make and we see Arya showing off her archery skills as Gendry arrives. During their discussion, Gendry reveals his true parentage to Arya, and she proceeds to ask Gendry how many women he has been with and Arya and Gendry then end up having sex. The relationship between the two has been long anticipated, and the fans might have gotten more than they could imagine with this scene.

However, this was not all. We saw Arya’s aim being teased quite a lot in this episode, and then we see the weapon that Gendry gives her. Most of you might have realized this by now — this weapon looks similar to the Night King‘s spear. If you think about it, it’s quite the opposite of that, since Dragonglass kills White Walkers. It looks as if there’s a high chance that Arya throws the spear at Viserion, and kills it off, for good.
