Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, AKA Jamie Lannister, is currently working through a lawsuit with his former manager, Jill Littman, for breach of contract. As part of the suit, Coster-Waldau was required to provide earning records for the hit HBO fantasy series.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, the documents show that Coster-Waldau appears in all six episodes of season eight. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean Jaime will survive the series’ end, but it does indicate his involvement in all six of the final seasons’ episodes. For fans of the Kingslayer, this is welcome news.
This isn’t the first time we’ve been given hints about the Oathbreaker’s fate. In an interview earlier this month, Coster-Waldau stated: “God, every time we got a new script I thought, ‘OK, this is probably going to be the one.’ But no. The Lannister kids made it to the end.”
Season eight of Game of Thrones will debut sometime in 2019.
