Drogon put on quite the spectacular fire extravaganza last episode, which resulted in mass casualties in the Westerosi capital that has a population of a million people. There were a few main characters of Game of Thrones that were thought to have been killed off in the siege of King’s Landing. However, a new Game of Thrones fan theory suggests that a character you assumed died is actually still alive.
A fan theory has come forward with a shocking hypothesis that Jaime Lannister is still alive. Despite being in the cellars of the Red Keep with his sister/lover Cersei and having the entire Red Keep collapse upon them, there are fans who truly believe that Jaime survived the seemingly inescapable death in Episode 5 of Season 8.
In “The Bells” episode, Jaime, Cersei and their unborn baby were trapped in the cellars of the Red Keep because rubble blocked their escape route. The ceiling crashes down all around them and you assume that they are all dead. The theory says that the Kingslayer survived.
Entertainment Weekly, which seems to have a deal with HBO because it gets Game of Thrones scoops before everyone, have not released their exit interview with Jaime Lannister actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. When Entertainment Weekly journalist James Hibbard was asked when his exit interview with Nikolaj would be released, he said, “Holding that one for a bit…”.
Hibbert did interviews with Lord Varys actor Conleth Hill, Cersei Lannister actress Lena Headey and The Hound actor Rory McCann and released them after their deaths in the penultimate episode.
Many of the Game of Thrones actors have said goodbye to their co-stars in touching posts on social media.
Nikolaj said goodbye to Cersei Lannister.
But there doesn’t seem to have been any sendoffs to Jaime Lannister or Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Especially by Lean Headey or GoT actress Gwendoline Christie, who plays Ser Brienne of Tarth. Could the Kingslayer emerge from the rubble to become the Queenslayer? We’ll have to tune into the Game of Thrones series finale on Sunday.
