‘Game of Thrones’ Star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Casts Doubt on Jaime Lannister’s Changed Allegiance

“Game of Thrones” Season 8 premieres in 2019 — and it’s just too far away. When he said his character’s parting words to Cersei basically meant “I don’t love you anymore,” he also noted that people don’t always mean what they say during an argument. “Who knows if it’s true?”

Given that Coster-Waldau knows how the series ends, he knows if it’s true. It seemed long overdue for Jaime to see his sister clearly, but now Coster-Waldau has cast doubt on whether he truly did. We hope not, though; it’s been nice seeing him become a better person throughout the series. “That’s, of course, said in a moment of passion,” he told Variety. Spoilers ahead if you haven’t yet watched Season 7, Episode 7. Or did he? Just when you think you have an inkling of where a “Game of Thrones” character’s storyline is headed, something makes you doubt yourself. The actor recently discussed Season 8 with Vanity Fair, and he made us question everything that happened with his character in the Season 7 finale. Coster-Waldau could just be trying to throw us off track, of course, but his point does make sense. This time, it’s an interview with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. When he realized that she intended to betray Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Jaime walked away, effectively shifting his allegiance away from her once and for all. [via: Vanity Fair] There is certainly the possibility that Jaime might relapse in his resolve to give up on Cersei. After seven seasons of staunch devotion to his twin-slash-lover, Jaime Lannister (Coster-Waldau) finally realized that Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is a cruel tyrant.
