“Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage recently had some fascinating comments about the final season.

Season 8 of “GoT” comes out this Sunday, and it’s pretty much the only thing that anybody in the entertainment world is talking about. It’s dominating every conversation. People are juiced, and we have no idea what will happen for the most part. (RELATED: These Are The Sexiest Photos Of ‘Game Of Thrones‘ Star Emilia Clarke On The Internet)

Dinklage, who plays Tyrion on the show, told Entertainment Weekly the following in an article published Wednesday about the ending:

If I use any adjectives it will give it away. But I love how it ended up. And how it ends up for everybody. They had a beautiful gentle touch with some and a hard touch with others. We’re so used to the standard formula of bad guys dying and good guys living…What David and Dan have done with all this is beautiful, painful, and lovely. It takes the show somewhere that’s dangerous and contemporary with what’s going on in the world.

His comments to EW have me nervous and excited. On one hand, I worry that the part about being “contemporary” with what’s going on in the world means that the bad guys are going to win.

Pretty much all of Hollywood thinks the world came to a crashing end when Donald Trump got elected president. Please, for the love of everything righteous in this world, do not let any modern politics get reflected in the final “GoT” season. That would just be an awful decision.

The last thing I want in the epic final ride in the series is some dumb political message about Trump or any other politician.

Having said all of that, I do love the fact that some characters are getting a “beautiful” ending and some are going down “hard.”

Let me translate that for everybody out there: It sounds like the blood will be flowing, and we all know that I’m here for that.

I want absolute chaos and blood flowing in the streets.

We’ll find out in a couple days when it returns on HBO. Hopefully, I’m just reading into Dinklage’s comments and overreacting. Let’s seriously pray that the final season lives up to my insanely sky-high expectations.
