Is it too late now to say sorry to Jon Snow?

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Game of Thrones season 7 might be over, but that hasn't stopped speculation about what we can expect to go down in Westeros when the show returns in two years. Will Daenerys be betrayed by one of her closest allies (ahem - we're looking at you, creeping boat-lurker, Tyrion)? Will Arya pretend to be Littlefinger now that's she's added him to her handbag full of peeled-off faces? And is this more proof that Bran is actually the Night King?

However, one of the characters we've got our eye on is Jaime Lannister. Despite rumours that he would be responsible for his twin sister's death, he never got around to killing Cersei. In fact, the last we saw of him he had narrowly avoided death by her order at the hands of The Mountain and was riding away from Kings Landing. It looks like Jaime is staying true to his word and is off up north to help Jon Snow and Dany fight the wights, meaning that this is how Cersei's death in Game of Thrones is likely to happen.

Actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has now hinted at his character's fate in Game of Thrones season 8.

'He has to get to some sort of commander, whether it be Jon Snow or someone else in charge,' he told Esquire.

But how likely is it that they'll welcome Jaime with open arms, considering he's been a main player on the opposing team for so long? We're willing to bet that his little brother, Tyrion, will be all for adding him to Dany's mismatched gang of outcasts, but will the Mother of Dragons and Jon Snow (okay, Aegon Targaryen) be so quick to accept him?

He continued: '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.'

Does this mean Jaime could soon be fighting in the terrifying undead army? Could Jon? Could Dany?

Here's to waiting two years to find out. Sob.
