Game of Thrones moved King's Landing to Belfast

It's one of the quietest moments in the episode, but it's all the more devastating for that.

While Jaime Lannister somehow making it out from underneath the rubble of King's Landing would be absurd, logic and reason have seemed to be dismissed in this final season of Game of Thrones, meaning that anything truly is possible heading into these final 80 minutes.

"What made "Game of Thrones" emblematic of its time is how it divided its audience from start to finish, right down to the matter of what a happy ending would even constitute", he wrote.

Jaime perished along with his sister Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) when Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) torched most of King's Landing.

While many will watch at home, perhaps with a goblet of Dornish red wine and a punnet of Braavosi cockles, thousands will celebrate and mourn the show's denouement at viewing parties in bars, banqueting halls and backyards from Alaska to Armenia. Asking for a heartbroken lady knight in Winterfell!

Same with Pilou Asbæk, whose character Euron Greyjoy was killed by Jaime Lannister in the last episode. The slaves Daenerys liberated in the early seasons of the show were props in a white-savior narrative until they were invoked as proof that she would never break bad.

Interestingly enough, Tyrion shared that small council with Tywin, Cersei, Varys, Littlefinger, and Grand Maester Pycelle, all of whom are no longer with us as we say goodbye to Game of Thrones.

Speaking of the small council, when Samwell Tarly presents the book A Song of Ice and Fire to Tyrion, the team behind Game of Thrones are also honoring the name of George R.R. Martin's book series that this show is adapted from, A Song of Ice and Fire.

In HBO's series, this book is Archmaester Ebrose's history of the wars following the death of King Robert Baratheon.

In Season 5, Bronn asks Jaime how he want to die. Her writing serves not only as a rejoinder to Joffrey's biting words, but also fulfills Jaime's wish to be known for more than being the Kingslayer. No hugs. No "Good boy!"

The most alluring thing about the show is that just when you place a bet on a character, or any other event, the show proves you wrong.

Despite the fact that he had an entire building fall onto the top of his head, some Game of Thrones fans lurking the internet actually believe that Jaime Lannister is somehow still alive and will make one final appearance in the series finale.

Have a tip for us?

"Why is there no talk of Jaime's death in the game revealed?" the Tumblr theory kicks off.
