“Surprising. Enormous. Heartbreaking.” says Nikolaj Coster-Waldau about Game Of Thrones Season 8




“Surprising. Enormous. Heartbreaking.” says Nikolaj Coster-Waldau about Season 8

Game of Thrones is done filming for Season 8, and the stars are getting a lot of free time these days and as a result we’re getting more of cast interviews teasing the final season. In a brand new interview, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays the role of Jaime Lannister on the show, teased Season 8. Read on!

Nikolaj recently gave a Google Hangouts interview to GoldDerby, and spike about the final season of Game of Thrones. Check out the full interview, below:

Speaking of the show’s foreshadowing and recalls, Nikolaj said:

“One of the great things about this show is that there are a lot of — also in season 8 — moments where you go “Oooooh, I remember that in [reaching for random example] season 2, Episode 3, that happened…[Jaime had] the tiniest of moments with Jon Snow in Episode 1…[Jaime] said, “Good luck at the Wall, we need great men like you.” And always, me and Kit Harington spoke about it; surely at one point we’re gonna meet again. There must be some payoff. And now, at least, [Jaime’s] going north. So he’s trying to get up there. We’ll see if he makes it. You never know.”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau comments on one of the biggest Game of Thrones fan theories

Speaking of Jaime’s relationship with Cersei, and him finally walking out on her, Nikolaj said:

“It goes back to the first thing he says in Episode 1, ‘The things I do for love,’ which was about how his whole life has been about his sister. He’s lived his life on his sister’s terms if you will. And I think the end of last season was kind of a very, very big moment because for the first time he knowingly acted against Cersei’s wishes, and he also for a moment saw her, I guess in a way, like the rest of the world has seen her for some time.

Part of what’s heartbreaking in the end is that she’s playing him. I think there is a little part of her that wants to embrace the romance.”

Speaking of the future prospects of Jaime’s love life, Nikolaj revealed that he’s a part of a large sect of the fanbase that wants Jaime to end up with Brienne of Tarth:

“I think that I’m more of a romantic than [showrunners] Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff]. I kind of want [Jaime] to just break out. You know, just leave Cersei! And she’s bad for you! And it’s not healthy! And clearly you’re in a relationship where you are more in love with her than she loves you, so, you know. And what about Brienne of Tarth? She’s great! I’m no different than anyone else. I’m a hopeless romantic.”

In the end, he teased Season 8 with only three words:

“Surprising. Enormous. Heartbreaking.”

It turns out Sophie Turner’s tattoo was a major Game Of Thrones spoiler after all




HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

About a year back, on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, Sophie Turner had showed all of us a tattoo on her arm that read, “The pack survives” with the Stark sigil, along with it.

Turns out we had a spoiler with us all along. For those of you who have seen the finale, will know what we are saying.

In the finale episode, “The Iron Throne”, Bran the Broken becomes the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa Stark becomes the Queen in the North, Jon Snow goes Beyond the Wall and mostly becomes The King Beyond the Wall and Arya Stark sets to fulfill her dream to become Nymeria and explore the world. Everything that each of them went through finally culminated into a bittersweet end. The promotional image of the pilot with Ned Stark on the throne almost made sense suddenly.

And turns out, Sophie Turner had already given out a major spoiler about this through her tattoo.

“It’s just a quote from last season,” Turner had said when asked about it. “Everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it’s just a moral that I like to live by.”

She also said that some people had advised against her getting it just in case fans react to it the way they did. But she did not pay heed to it. Turner also took to Instagram after the airing of the episode.

“The pack survived,” she wrote alongside an image of herself, Williams and Hempstead Wright.

Game of Thrones fans react to Jon Snow and Ghost reunion in the series finale

Game of Thrones pulled off a sneaky on us. In the fourth episode Season 8, we saw Jon Snow leave Ghost without petting him. In the series finale, Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we saw Jon reunite with Ghost, and the fans loved it. Read on!

Jon had earlier sent Ghost with Tormund to the real North, while he was leaving Winterfell, and he didn’t even pet him. This had upset a lot of fans. However in the series finale, we saw Ghost waiting for Jon at the Wall, and they reunite, resulting in our good boy getting a long pet. The fans took to Twitter to appreciate this:

How did you react to Jon reuniting with Ghost and finally petting him? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones Finale sees Arya Stark finally embracing her old dream




no game of thrones sequel says hbo executive

Game of Thrones series Finale gave each character their dues, some satisfactory and some not so much. But the Stark kids seem to be doing pretty well! Just as Sansa got her childhood wish, Arya Stark too took her first steps in a direction she always wanted to go.

This post contains spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet (but seriously, what are you doing? Hurry up!).

game of thrones sansa finale satisfying end

“What’s West of Westeros?” Arya Stark had asked out back in Season 6. She was talking to Lady Crane, an actress who helped her with a stab wound and let Arya stay at her place. That’s what she really wants, to go off exploring beyond where the maps stop.

She couldn’t then. Arya came back home, avenged her family’s death, saved humanity from the undead invasion and survived the carnage at King’s Landing. All her duties done, and Winter already receding, Arya now goes back to her old dream of becoming an explorer. In the last scenes of Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale, we see Arya sailing on a ship, journeying to the “west of Westeros”.

Arya had always been an anomaly in the rigid society of Westeros. She was expected to marry a lord and bear his children. But Arya never saw herself in that role. That’s why she rejected Gendry’s proposal in episode 4, even though she clearly had affection for him. She knew that marriage, even to someone she loves, will bind her in society’s expectations. Arya rejected that with all her heart.

Game of Thrones may not be as kind to everyone, but I’m glad at least Arya got her happy ending!
