Jason Momoa is probably more excited than anyone about the upcoming final season of Game of Thrones. That's because he knows what happens.

The actor currently playing Aquaman in the DC Universe is well known for his role as Khal Drogo, the formidable leader of the Dothraki in Game of Thrones. Though his character died at the end of the first season (paving the way for his erstwhile wife Daenerys to become a front-runner for the Iron Throne), he was back on set recently. This sparked up suspicions that Momoa would return for the final season of the HBO show in some form or another, but he assures fans he was just visiting his old friends, especially Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Rory McCann (The Hound), and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), as well as series producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

Unfortunately, visiting the set had some unwanted results, beyond just the speculation of press and fans: He found out what happens in the final six episodes of the series.

“Just knowing how amazing this season is going to be …” Momoa told Entertainment Weekly. “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!'”

But being the savvy HBO that veteran he is, Momoa isn't about to give up any spoilers.

No premiere date has been set for the final season of Game of Thrones, but it isn't expected to hit until 2019, which now seems even farther away.
