There’s a pretty compelling theory that Game Of Thrones’ Jaime is still alive

SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers for Game Of Thrones season 8, episode 5 ahead…

Despite the fact that Game Of Thrones’ Jaime Lannister was stabbed really, really hard by Euron Greyjoy, and then had the entire Red Keep fall on top of him, there is a pretty compelling theory that he actually survived.

At first, I was all like, “Nah mate”. But before you decide for yourself whether this theory is codswallop or not, check out what Tumblr user, WeedsAreFlowersToo, has to say about it.

WAFT has pointed out that none of the cast has acknowledged Jaime’s death on social media. That’s right – no-one seems to want to honour Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and his cracking work. Hurtful…

“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?”

The next piece of proof that Jaime is still alive, albeit a bit dusty from all that dang-tooting rubble, is this: Entertainment Weekly’s James Hibberd has been doing exit interviews with most of the GOT cast after they die. He interviewed Lena and Rory McCann, who played The Hound. But when asked where his interview with Nikolaj was he said this:

WeedsAreFlowersToo added, “Apparently James Hibberd [the EW editor] also said there was a character he was surprised to see alive in episode 6. 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.”

Woah.
