Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Might Have Dropped a Spoiler About Jaime's Game of Thrones Fate

It's truly impossible to predict the outcome of Game of Thrones, but that hasn't stopped fans and even some cast members from trying to figure out every detail. Many of the show's actors have discussed pieces of their predictions over the course of its run, but Nikolaj Coster-Waldau may have just hinted that his character, Jaime Lannister, survives.

Coster-Waldau revealed he had tried to predict the show's ending at one point. "I guessed some of it, but not all of it," he recently told Digital Spy. "I was really surprised [by the end], but it's one of those nice surprises where it's surprising but it makes sense. You go, 'Oh, that’s clever.'"

But it was what Coster-Waldau said next that may have shed some light on the fate of the Kingslayer.

"I can't remember what I thought [about the ending] exactly, although I expected not to survive. I think it's a good ending … it's easy to go to the spoilers!"

Could this really mean that Jaime survives? The last time we saw Jaime, he was entering Winterfell during the last scene of the season 8 premiere, and he had an awkward staredown with Bran Stark, who was waiting for him.

In the episode 2 preview, it looks as though Jaime could be put on trial by Daenerys Targaryen, who had arrived in the North with her armies and dragons to prepare for the battle against the Night King. "When I was a child, my brother would tell me a bedtime story about the man who murdered our father," the Mother of Dragons says, "… and all the things we would do to that man."

With his sister, Cersei, plotting his death for betraying her, and Daenerys wanting him dead as well, Jaime might have to fight for his life before the battle with the White Walkers even begins. How long he survives this season is anyone's guess, though.

Netflix's Stranger Things Season 3 Video Is Full of Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

Stranger Things's third season was full of many surprising twists and turns, not to mention some awkward teen romances. While the gruesome Mind Flayer and the evil Russians were no doubt terrifying, the show kept its sweet touch of nostalgia due mainly to the fact that the Hawkins gang is now smack-dab in the middle of the 1980s.

It doesn’t take a keen eye to see many of the series's '80s references, particularly in the latest season. With scenes taking place at the new mall, references from the decade—including Hot Dog on a Stick, Sam Goody, and Back to the Future—are all part of the setting. However, creators Ross and Matt Duffer wanted to pay true homage to the decade, and thus left Easter eggs throughout the season that you likely missed.

Luckily for us, as BGR reports, Netflix has just released a video explaining the hidden references (with the New Coke debate, Mrs. Wheeler’s erotica novel, and Hopper’s Tom Selleck-inspired Hawaiian shirt among some of our favorites).

Check out the full video above and see what you missed!

Disney's Lady and the Tramp Remake Will Star a Mixed-Breed Rescue Dog Named Monte

Following the success of The Lion King, Lady and the Tramp will be the next classic Disney movie to be revamped in 2019. And while most of Disney's live-action remakes boast star-studded casts, the lead in this upcoming film is totally unknown. That's because Monte, a mixed-breed dog from Phoenix, Arizona, spent his pre-Hollywood days living in animal shelters.

As AZ Central reports, Monte will make his film debut as Tramp when Lady and the Tramp releases alongside the launch of Disney+, the company's upcoming streaming service, on November 12. In the original 1955 animated movie, Tramp was portrayed as a mutt who lived on the streets, so instead of looking for a purebred dog to portray the character, producers stayed faithful to the source material.

Monte lived in a New Mexico animal shelter before transferring to HALO Animal Rescue in Phoenix. When the filmmakers went there in search of a star for their movie, he instantly won them over. Like Tramp, Monte is a mixed-breed dog, but the shelter doesn't know exactly what his background is, other than being part terrier. Despite his scrappy appearance, Monte is very well-behaved. He knows how to sit, walk on a leash, and he's friendly with everyone he meets, according to the shelter.

The Lady and the Tramp crew adopted Monte in April 2018, and earlier this month, Disney released the first promotional image of him for the film. It features Monte snuggling up with his co-star, Rose, who plays Lady. True to the original, Lady is portrayed by a purebred cocker spaniel. Though you likely don't recognize the dogs on the poster, you may have heard of the voice actors who will bring them to life: Justin Theroux is playing Tramp and Tessa Thompson is Lady.
