According to Peter Dinklage, his ​Game of Thrones character Tyrion Lannister has a perfect ending in the series' upcoming eighth and final season.

Yesterday, during the Los Angeles premiere of his HBO original movie, My Dinner with Hervè, Dinklage spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the Game of Thrones finale, briefly touching upon his feelings about Tyrion's end in the series and giving praise to the GoT writers and showrunners.

"There are no better writers in television than Dan Weiss and David Benioff," Dinklage said. "They ended it brilliantly. Better than I could have imagined and you people are in for it." In regard to Tyrion's fate, the actor said, "It ends beautifully for my character, whether it be tragic or not."

Although Dinklage didn't embellish on, or even hint at, exactly what's in store regarding this "beautiful" ending, ​according to ComicBook.com, Game of Thrones special effects producer Steve Kullback, may have leaked some major information about Tyrion's fate during the 2018 Creative Arts Emmys in September.

"We can't tell you in what episode Tyrion dies ... Or doesn't," Kullback said, and ever since, fans have been debating whether his addition of "or doesn't" was an attempt to save the leak or an intentional joke.

Even though we have to ​wait until next year to learn what happens to Tyrion and the rest of the Game of Thrones characters, we can't wait to see it all go down.

Watch One Second From Every Game of Thrones Episode in Under Two Minutes

Game of Thrones aired its final episode on May 19, and despite some harsh reviews, many fans are finding it hard to accept the show’s end. While some consider Thrones counseling or rewatching the series with a tissue box handy, others on the internet are creating really cool montage videos.

Twitter user Andy Kelly recently posted a fan-made video of one-second clips from all 73 Game of Thrones episodes. The video shows the most memorable scenes from the series, such as Ned Stark’s decapitation, the Red Wedding, King Joffrey being poisoned, Jon Snow’s resurrection, the killing of the Night King, and Daenerys Targaryen’s death.

You really can’t capture all of the action-packed events and shocking twists that happened within the eight seasons of Game of Thrones so quickly, but the video does a good job of giving encapsulating it in under two minutes. And it’s easier than binge-watching it again.

Jimmy Kimmel Shows Us What a Game of Thrones/Full House Mashup Would Look Like

Two of the least-similar shows in television history just came together … in a parody courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel Live. The hilarious video depicts a hypothetical Game of Thrones spinoff series where Jaime Lannister joins two classic characters from Full House for a show appropriately titled Full House Lannister.

While there is at least one Thrones spinoff already in the works, Kimmel couldn’t wait for the series to premiere, so he made his own to deal with the post-Thrones blues.

The video starts off in typical Full House fashion with Joey (Dave Coulier) trying to open a pickle jar, which Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) stabs with his sword and destroys. After a few pun-filled jokes, Jaime gets upset and Danny (Bob Saget) sits down with him to talk. Jaime explains that he had a fight with his sister, but when he reveals it’s because he got Cersei pregnant again, a creeped out Danny flees the situation. Joey then comes over to seemingly console Jaime, but instead hilariously says, “I was just going to tell you to stop f***ing your sister.”

The parody perfectly combines the silliness of Full House and the darker topics of Game of Thrones—and the cherry on top is a shadow of a dragon flying over San Francisco in the credits.
