Zap2It asked Nikolaj what Jaime’s reaction will be upon discovering his father’s death. “Shock,” Nikolaj answered. “Because that was not the plan. The plan was to help Tyrion escape, the fact now that he’s killed his father, I mean, I think no matter what Tywin has done I think Jaime still loves his father because it’s his father and he certainly didn’t want him dead.”
Aside from Jaime’s own feelings about the death of his father, Nikolaj also believes (rightly) that Tywin’s death will have larger ramifications. “Also, on a political scale, it’s a disaster because Tywin was so powerful,” Nikolaj says. “So [Jaime] understands that now that this is not good for the safety of Cersei and Tommen and the Lannisters.”
Nikolaj certainly has us excited for Season 5, and we can’t help but think that Cersei’s reaction to Tywin’s death will be even crazier than Jaime’s!
