GAME OF THRONES’ Jaime Lannister has been one of the most interesting character on the series so far and no doubt the knight will continue to surprise fans when the final series airs.
But it could be that Jaime (played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) will make the ultimate sacrifice in the last Game of Thrones instalment for an old enemy.
Jaime has been a flawed figure, largely down to his loyalties to his sister and lover Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), but it isn’t too late for him to redeem himself.
The close of season seven of the HBO epic saw Jaime make a bold move as he travelled away from Cersei after he disagreed with her military decisions in regard to the White Walkers.
Now, one fan thinks Jaime will step in to save none other than Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) when the tension mounts in season eight.
“Jaime will die defending one of the Stark children (most likely Bran) and die in the arms of Brienne,” wrote Reddit user JackStargaryen.
If Jaime were to die saving Bran, it could see the show come full circle.
Fans will remember the first episode saw the fallout begin as Bran was pushed from a tower at Winterfell by Jaime.
The youngster had been climbing the walls of his home when he accidentally happened upon Jaime having sex with his twin, Cersei.
However, as viewers know, Bran was not killed by the incident but he did lose the use of his legs.
Could Jaime, who as been a staunch anti-hero throughout the series, do one last selfless act?

The fan also speculated on what would happen to Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) who has enjoyed an unlikely friendship with Jaime.
They continued: “Brienne (possibly Pregnant with Jaime’s child) stays in KL to continue to defend Sansa or becomes Lady of Stormlands in memory of Renly.”
Some viewers have been longing to see a union between Brienne and Jaime, but if this theory is anything the go by it will only be short-lived.
Recently, Ser Jorah Mormont star Iain Glen teased it would be an “emotional” end to Game of Thrones.
“They took longer to film, cost more, and are more surprising.”
He added: “It was very emotional.
“Game of Thrones will stick with us all forever and we were very lucky to have been a part of the show.
“The realist won’t sink in until it comes to next year when we should be filming, but we’re not.”
