Game of Thrones season 8 Jaime Lannister death by Daenerys Targaryen revealed in episode 2 | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Warning: This article contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season eight, episode one. 

Game of Thrones’ Jaime Lannister (played by Nikolaj Coster Waldau) is known as The Kingslayer throughout Westeros.

Before the series started, he freely admitted to killing the then-king Aerys Targaryen (David Rintoul) when he turned mad with power.

And in a trailer for season eight, episode two, it seems Jaime’s actions are about to come back to haunt him when he meets up with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) in Winterfell. 

Jaime stands before the Queen, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and the rest of the northern aides in The Great Hall.

He looks decidedly sheepish as Daenerys addresses him with an authoritative tone. 

She tells him: “When I was a child, my brother would tell me a bedtime story about the man who killed our father.

“About all the things we would do to that man.”

At the end of episode one, Jaime returned to Winterfell in order to help Jon in his plight against the Night King (Vladimir Furdik). 

However, when he arrived, he bumped into Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), who he last saw when he pushed him out of the tower in Winterfell, rendering both of his legs paralysed.

Although Bran can’t remember anything about the accident, he does have the ability to travel in time with his mind so surely Jaime is on borrowed time anyway.

Would Daenerys really kill off Jaime considering he is trying to get the Lannister army to help against the White Walkers?

But if Bran also discovers who paralysed him, Jon would seek revenge also.

Nevertheless, things aren’t looking good for fan-favourite Jaime.

Elsewhere in the thrilling debut, Jon was finally told his true heritage.

Fans have known for two seasons that the King of the North is actually the rightful heir to the Iron Throne after his Targaryen parentage was revealed.

However, his loyal friend, Samwell Tarly (John Bradley), finally confirmed the news to him and Jon was shocked to say the least.

The King was concerned he was committing treason by even suggesting Daenerys wasn’t the rightful Queen.

But Sam insisted it was Jon’s Iron Throne to lose, begging him to consider whether she would ever give up her right to the title for the good of the people.

Will Jon end up betraying Daenerys as the series comes to an end over the coming five weeks?

Game of Thrones continues next Monday at 2am and 9pm on Sky Atlantic.
