Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Game of Thrones" season seven.

Jaime Lannister has been in hot water with his twin sister/lover Cersei for several seasons of HBO's "Game of Thrones" now. While Jaime expended a lot of energy trying to get back in her good graces, it looks like he's finally realizing that Team Cersei might not be side he wants to fight for.

But just as Jaime was showing signs of breaking faith with his twin in this week's episode, Cersei revealed she was pregnant with his child. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, revealed his character's mindset in that moment.

"So he's happy for maybe a millisecond before she goes ahead and ruins it by saying, 'And don't ever betray me again,'" Coster-Waldau told The Hollywood Reporter. "Suddenly, he's like, 'Oh, that's right. It's Darth Vader. I forgot that I've been f---ing Darth Vader.'"

Cersei has certainly managed to make herself one of the most ruthless, vengeance-seeking rulers in Westeros. After seeing her sadistic torture plans for her enemies to the mass murder she plotted with the Sept of Baelor explosion, there's no telling what Cersei might do next. 

Clearly Jaime needs to stay on his toes, because Cersei is tracking his every move. She knew he met with Tyrion thanks to Qyburn's little birds, and warned him against ever going behind his back again. 

If a running fan theory is correct however, Jaime won't be cowed by his personal "Darth Vader" forever. Some people believe that a prophecy told to Cersei as a child — one that foretold the deaths of her children and her own eventual murder — points to Jaime as the likeliest killer. 

Plus, people doubt Cersei's pregnancy can be viable given that same prophecy which foretold she would only have three children. But we'll have to wait and see what machination's Cersei is hiding up those Vader-esque sleeves.

"Game of Thrones" season seven continues Sunday, August 20. In the meantime read through our roundup of nine details you may have missed in "Eastwatch."
