Hello nerds!

In an interview with Esquire, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has some thoughts on where ole "Mr. out for redemption", Jaime Lannister, could end up in the final season of Game of Thrones. 

The ultra-handsome man IRL and on the television spoke about Jaime and Cersei's breakup, how the Kingslayer has changed over the course of the show and he gives some insight as to where the flaxen haired, southpaw was headed at the end of the Season 7 finale. 

I do think he’s heading north, unless he’s tricking us all and goes south and just says, “I’m getting the hell out of here.” The double-double-double cross. “I lost my hand, what am I even going to do up there?” He could just be in a row boat getting away. No, I do believe that he’s joining them in the north. You know there are all these swords of Valyrian steel, and you would think those five would all be somewhere in the mix.

Here's hoping that Arya doesn't instantly go all knifey jedi on him when he arrives at Winterfell, before he gets a chance to speak to Jon and Daenerys. We're likely about 1 year and a half away from seeing any of this play out on our TV screens, so until then we'll have to incessantly dissect each and every word the cast utters. 

Speaking of which, NC-Dubbs gets all grim and seems positively convinced that some of our favorite characters will "break bad" and turn to the "dark side" by the end of the show. In typical GoT fashion, it seems that no one is safe.

The fear is that I would be turned into one of those undead. That would suck. You know some of the main characters are going to get turned. There are going to be some blue-eyed main characters running around. And, god, I hope it’s not me. That’s three hours of make-up in the morning. I know that if David Benioff and Dan Weiss read this, they’ll go, “Oh, yes we will.”

Oh, Game of Thrones. That is so you. But seriously who do you think, from the main cast, is set for a lovely pair of blue contacts? I've got a $5 on Jorah Mormont.

The final season of Game of Thrones heads into production in October, so I'm expecting some spoilers to eek out later this year. And so my watch begins.
