Though the premiere of the “Game of Thrones” series finale is still several months away, speculation has never been fiercer. From analyzing Maisie Williams’ cryptic Arya tribute to breaking down every second of teaser footage HBO has released, fan anticipation has never been higher.

Part of this stems from the show’s actors dribbling out morsels of gossip in interviews. Like Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who discussed Season 7’s plotlines and teased what we might expect next year in an interview with the Huffington Post. What did he say that has everyone so excited on social media?

Well after he finished reading the final “GoT” scripts, Coster-Waldau told the writers, “I don’t think you could’ve done a better job at finishing this story.”

“To me, it was very satisfying but also very surprising and all the things that I was hoping for,” he said. “It still made sense. It wasn’t like one of those where the killer is suddenly revealed in the last act and you go, ‘Oh! I didn’t see that coming.’ Here, they’ve done a really, really good job.”

But the biggest nugget the actor who plays Jaime revealed was about his character’s relationship with Brienne of Tarth. Together the characters have shared one of the more fascinating relationships on the show, exhibiting respect and sexual tension where it might not be expected. When the interviewer asked what we might expect from Jaime this season, here’s what he said:

“Well, he is heading north. I don’t think you can assume that he’s going to make it up there, but who knows. For sure, we see him head north. He might be eaten by dragons, you never know. Or he might just stumble, things happen. Or he might find the love of his life and suddenly he’s like, ‘God, this is it. No more.'”

When the reporter suggested that Brienne was the “true love” of Jaime’s life, Coster-Waldau didn’t deny that possibility, saying, “Ohhh, well, who knows? [Laughs] I don’t, well, I know how it ends but … no, I can’t comment on that,”

Don’t worry, we’ll only have to wait until early 2019 to know if there’s validity to this rumor, or if Coster-Waldau is having some fun with fans.
