WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW!!!!
The fourth episode of the seventh season was quite a doozy and left viewers with many questions but none more so than the status of warrior heartthrob Jaime Lannister. Is he alive?! Will he get to see his beloved Cersei ever again? Or has the golden lion of Casterly Rock taken his last breaths at the bottom of that dark river? Well here are 5 REASONS WE BELIEVE HE IS STILL ALIVE:
1. HE DESERVES TO SAY GOODBYE
Jaime didn’t have one scene with Cersei in his supposed “final episode.” Would the showrunners really kill off this character without giving him one final goodbye with his sister and lover Cersei? WE THINK NOT!
2. BOOK THEORIES ABOUND!
The supply of book theories is seemingly endless but one clever theory has Jaime slated as the prophesied “Prince Who Was Promised.” Is it possible this Lannister bad boy could end up saving the people of Westeros from the evil that lurks deep in the North? A select few book readers seem to think so.
3. ON SET PHOTOS!
Secret photos from the set were leaked not long before this season aired showing Jaime smooching with a blonde bombshell on a park bench in Central Park. Is it the Mother of Dragons in a yet to be featured scene from this season? PROBABLY DEFINITELY.
4. HE’S MY ROOMMATE AND HE TOLD ME EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS
Me and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster Waldau) share a 1 bedroom apartment in Burbank, CA right next to the Foster’s Freeze on Glenoaks Boulevard. After a crazy random and fun Tuesday night of drinking at the newly opened Yardhouse on Palm Ave right across from the AMC 16 in Burbank I got Nik to spill some secrets about the show’s ending. I won’t spoil it….but he lives…
5. I WAS A STAND-IN FOR JAIME FOR THE SEASON FINALE
Yep. That’s me. Jaime Lannister’s stand in. Because of our roommate status he was able to pull some strings and get me a gig on this season’s finale. Here’s what happened in the scene: Jaime is talking with Cersei in the bedroom after a night of super hot sibling sex. As Cersei towels off her sweaty, naked body Jaime says to her, “Cersei my sister, when can we have sex again? I was thinking maybe next Friday after I get back from battle. You know how randy I get after spilling some blood on the battlefield.” Cersei turns to Jaime, naked, breasts drooping in Jaime’s face. She pulls a dagger out from her bosom and slashes Jaime’s throat. “Are you randy now, brother?” says Cersei as she straddles Jaime, bleeding profusely from the neck. “Blood has been spilt, has it not?” quips Cersei. Jaime struggles for breath with Cersei atop him, the blood staining the royal bed sheets. Jaime dies. Cersei stands up from her brother’s corpse, bloody and naked, breasts bouncing with precise buoyancy. She then turns toward the bedroom mirror admiring her face, her naked body, her impeccable breasts, floating as if they are satellites caught in their planet’s orbit. She smiles and takes off the mask. ‘Tis none other than Arya Stark. (but Jaime wasn’t on Arya’s list you say!) Arya then takes off another mask. It’s Gregor Clegane aka “The Mountain.”
