Game of Thrones is a television spectacle unlike anything we have ever seen. Its ability to capture the world's attention is unmatched by any other tv series, and the upcoming final season is going to the talk of every office around the country for the next two months.
There has been much speculation as to who will emerge victorious and sit on the iron throne, but the answer to that question is anyone's guess at the moment. The only people who know for sure are the cast and crew of the show, and one of the main faces of Game of Thrones has now given a major hint as to the identity of that person.
Well, not really. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, aka Jaime Lannister, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel to discuss the upcoming season last night, and dropped a big hint about the new series. When the identity of the show's hero came up, the Dane felt there was only one man for the job: Marcelo Bielsa.

You know there's the theory about Azhor Ahai, the chosen one that will come back and save the day? Everybody thinks that it's Jon Snow, but there is also this guy called Bielsa, which is a guy that comes and magically transforms the world for the good.
When everything is lost up north, he will come and magically transform the north into this beautiful paradise... then everybody says 'in Bielsa we trust'.
That American crowd did not have a notion what was going on there, pick your audience wisely next time Jaime. We do have to remember that this is a man who sired three children with his own twin sister, so his judgment is off a bit.
To be fair, the parallels are uncanny. Much like Jon Snow, Marcelo Bielsa has arrived from nowhere to give people of the north hope once again. He also refuses to die, even surviving an orchestrated attack. Although his was carried out by his brothers in the night's watch, but instead the EFL.
Just like Ned Stark's apparent bastard ending up on the iron throne, Bielsa emerging from the war of the Championship would be the most satisfying conclusion for many onlookers. Although to be fair, his spying tactics are a lot closer to Peter Baelish than Jon Snow.
