Spoilers for Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones, “The Spoils of War,” follow.

Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones nearly saw Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) being burned to a crisp, only to be “saved” at the last second by Bronn (Jerome Flynn).

I use the word “saved” loosely here, because as the two men plunged into the water, the last shot we saw on our TV screens was that of Jaime sinking like a stone to the bottom of that black water (pun intended). But that’s not the last we saw of the Kingslayer, right? RIGHT?!

We’ll have to wait until this coming Sunday’s new installment, titled “Eastwatch” (we’re going back to The Wall next week, folks — most specifically to Eastwatch-by-the-Sea), to see whether or not Jaime met his maker (I'm praying not) after he bravely if foolishly tried to end the war for the Seven Kingdoms by killing Dany (Emila Clarke) and her dragon, Drogon.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor didn’t want to spill the beans on his character’s ultimate fate, but said the script direction for the episode said: “One of our main characters is about to die …”

Uh-oh. “Jaime is such an idiot that he thinks for a second, ‘If I can do this, I can win the whole thing in a Hail Mary,’” Coster-Waldau added, keeping mum on his character’s chances of survival following that encounter. But when previously asked about Jaime’s Twincest relationship with Cersei and whether that would lead to his doom, Coster-Waldau said: “It’s not going to end well for Jaime Lannister, I can’t imagine.”

Do you guys think Jaime will survive his fiery encounter with the Mother of Dragons and Drogon?
