Winter is passing. The end of HBO’s Game of Thrones is almost here (relatively speaking), and one of the show’s biggest stars is already pouring one out.

In an interview with Variety at the Sundance Film Festival, actor Peter Dinklage said “It’s time” on the subject of the hit show’s finale. “Storywise, not just for all our lives,” he said. “It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.”

Since Game of Thrones premiered in 2011, Dinklage starred in the HBO mega-drama as Tyrion Lannister, who has risen and fallen (and risen again) from drunk aristocrat to fugitive to calculated political advisor. Currently, Tyrion serves as Hand to Queen Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), who has just aligned herself with Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), unaware of their shared family lineage.

An experienced character actor before he rose to fame in Game of Thrones — you may have seen Dinklage before in shows like Nip/Tuck, or in the cult Christmas comedy Elf — Dinklage added that the end of the series will be “bittersweet.” Certainly the millions of Game of Thrones fans invested in the world of Westeros will feel the same way when the show airs its finale in 2019.

To the end.

“It’s always the sad part of our business, because you get pockets of great people for short amounts of time and then you have to move on and it’s always heartbreaking,” Dinklage said. “Especially when you’ve spent more than a couple months with people.”

Thankfully, there is a long wait before it’s really time to say goodbye. During the Sundance interview, Dinklage said production on the final season was only about halfway through, and it won’t air until next year. “It’s the final season, and it’s a long one so we’re taking our time,” he added.

Game of Thrones will return to HBO in 2019.

Did you all forget that Ryan Reynolds (and not Danny Devito) is voicing Pikachu in the live-action movie POKÉMON Detective Pikachu? Well, he is, and there is an honest to goodness trailer to prove it. Also, there are like five characters from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the film, if you want to be technical about it.

There may never be a Too Many Cooks sequel, but that doesn’t mean the 11-minute Adult Swim sitcom parody was a one-time deal. If you ask the creators, they’ll point you to Final Deployment 4, a “spiritual successor” that aired on Adult Swim earlier this year, but if you talk to some of the actors featured in the original viral video they’ll immediately mention something else entirely: Too Many Cooks the Musical.

What if Rey’s real purpose in the universe is to bring balance to the Force by ending the Skywalker lineage? That’s the crux of a new Star Wars: Episode IX fan theory that essentially labels her the Antichrist, but not in the satanic sense.

On Thursday, redditor u/McSlever posted a complex new Star Wars theory to the r/FanTheories subreddit titled “Rey the Anti-Christ (Star Wars Theory)”. McSlever fuses together a smattering of theories we’ve heard before: Snoke is Darth Plagueis, Anakin was immaculately conceived, Rey has no real parents, etc. It relies heavily on Palpatine’s quote from Revenge of the Sith: “Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith so powerful and so wise, he could use the Force to influence the Midi-chlorians to create … life.” The assumption is that before even the prequel trilogy, Darth Plagueis created Anakin as a Christ-like figure to eradicate the Jedi and the Sith.
