Jason Momoa makes a huge claim about the final season of 'Game of Thrones'
In the most recent season of Game of Thrones, we saw the plot escalate as fan-favorite characters met for the first time and huge action spectacles that we never thought we would see on television took place. It's definitely come a long way since its first episode back in 2011, and, if the seventh season was anything to go by, the next (and final) season will be incredible.
While we know that the armies of the Night King have breached the wall and are going to head into battle with the army of the living, there is still a lot that we can't be sure of. For one, given the show's penchant for twists and gut-wrenching tragic ends for beloved characters - truly anything can happen. These secrets are held away by the cast and crew of the show, but now apparently even Jason Momoa - whose character was offed back in the very first season - knows how things will turn out.
Momoa recently caused a stir when he met up with the cast of the hit show while they were filming in Ireland. We first saw him reunite with Emilia Clarke, who played the "moon of his life" Daenerys Targaryen, when he was promoting his recent blockbuster Justice League in London. When he headed over to Ireland, he even seemed to start up a beautiful bromance with Kristofer Hivju, who plays the hilarious (and badass) Tormund.
Many fans started speculating that his appearance, having a drink with the likes of Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos), and Rory McCann (The Hound) during his brief stay, suggested a return of his character Khal Drogo. Whether that would be in flashback or in some kind of return from the dead, he set the record straight in a recent interview with EW:
"I just showed up to see [producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss] and I just happened to see people on set. I haven’t been over there in a long time. You just want to see your friends and then you end up making headlines like, ‘Drogo’s back!’ and I’m like, ‘He’s dead! He can’t come back, it wouldn’t work.'"
In the interview he continued, talking about what the final season will entail. Apparently, during his visit to the production he learned plenty of secrets about what's in store for fans:
"Just knowing how amazing this season is going to be. It’s going to be the greatest thing that’s ever aired on TV. It’s going to be unbelievable. It’s going to f**up a lot of people. And it was a bummer because I’m a huge fan and I didn’t want to know what’s going on. I was like, ‘Damn, I didn’t want to know that!'"
If Momoa thinks that the final season will "f*ck up a lot of people", you've got to believe him. We'll find out exactly what he means when it airs, which is looking to be all the way in 2019.
