With just two more days to go until Game of Thrones finally returns for its eighth and final season, you'd think there'd be no time left for spoilers to be dropped. Well, many are certain the actor behind Jaime Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, did just that during a TV appearance earlier this week.
The 48-year-old actor stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres show on April 9, where he spoke briefly on the final season. However, one tiny thing he shared is actually extremely telling. When asked by the host if he could explain what Thrones is about in just 30 seconds, Coster-Waldau hilariously centered it around his character. His explanation went:
"There's a boy who's lost his way in life, he needs help and this guy, Jaime Lannister, helps him, he pushes him out a window, he falls to the ground, he realizes 'I have to do something with life,' he becomes the Three-Eyed Raven—this magical creature who can foresee the future, look back—and helps save the world, all because of Jaime Lannister, this great guy."
Yes, very funny, but also, perhaps spoiler-filled. The fact that Coster-Waldau says Bran Stark "helps save the world" has fans in a frenzy. Many took to the comments section on the YouTube video to discuss. "He gave us the end bran will save the world," one wrote, while another said, "So, Bran saves everyone! Happily-ever-after- That's how GoT ends!?" A third commented, "Three eyed raven helps save the world! Interesting!!"
There's no way to know for sure right now if this was just a joke or the real truth, but everything will start to unravel soon. The final season of Thrones premieres on April 14.
