Clues Hint That a Major Game of Thrones Character Is Still Alive


Warning: Spoilers for all aired episodes of Game of Thrones ahead!

The internet has just found something really fishy about a certain character we all assumed died in last week’s Game of Thrones episode, “The Bells.” Hold onto your fallen character tributes for now, because there might be proof that Jaime Lannister is still alive.

In the middle of all the chaos happening in King’s Landing during the most recent episode, Cersei Lannister was able to reunite with her brother in a strangely sentimental moment. When it looked like every way out was blocked, Jaime took a hysterical Cersei in his arms and they embraced as the Red Keep collapsed all around them. Is there any possible way one of them didn’t die?

Well, as reported by Cosmopolitan, Tumblr user WeedsAreFlowersToo has found possible evidence that might prove Jaime miraculously survived.

First, the fan pointed out how strange it was that there haven’t been any goodbye posts or tributes to Jaime, played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, from the cast. So far this season, as each episode has brought more deaths, the show’s cast members have started to post about the fallen characters on social media. But this hasn’t happened for Coster-Waldau. The user wrote:

"Why isn’t ANYONE acknowledging that Jaime Lannister just died??? Why is nobody in the cast thanking Nik for his performance? Why did Pilou (Euron Greyjoy) and Lena’s (Cersei Lannister) Insta post not say anything about Jaime dying? Why isn’t Nik saying anything about what he thinks of the scene? Why did he make a post saying goodbye to Lena, and not to the character he played for 8 years? Why is there no talk of Jaime’s death in the game revealed?"

This definitely seems strange, especially considering in Coster-Waldau’s Instagram post after the episode, he didn’t explicitly say goodbye to his character. Instead, it seems just like a goodbye to Cersei.

The user also brought up a response from Entertainment Weekly editor James Hibberd, who has been conducting exit interviews with the actors whose characters have died this season. After speaking with Lena Headey and Rory McCann following “The Bells,” one fan on Twitter asked Hibberd where Coster-Waldau’s interview was. His response was quite cryptic: “Holding that one for a bit…”

"Apparently James Hibberd also said there was a character he was surprised to see alive in episode 6," the fan continued. "I don’t think there is any other character at this point that we would be shocked to see alive except Jaime. Prove me wrong."

Although we’d have some trouble buying the possibility that Jaime survived getting stabbed by Euron Greyjoy and having a castle fall on him, there is some solid evidence here that something unexpected might happen in the finale. We’ll just have to wait these next few days to see.

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.
