Isaac Hempstead Wright Leaks Photo of ‘Game of Thrones’ Episode 3 ‘Alternate Ending’

*Warning: Spoilers ahead*

After the massive Game of Thrones season seven spoiler leaks, HBO revealed that the hit series would film multiple endings to the show to throw everyone off—including the cast. Well, Isaac Hempstead Wright, who plays Bran “Creepy Stare” Stark on the series, just spilled a little spoiler tea and revealed a photo from a season eight, episode three alternate ending on Instagram…kind of.

The photo places Bran and the Night King, played by Vladimir Furdik, under the Weirwood tree where we last saw them in episode three. Only instead of the Night King doing his slow villain walk toward Bran and them having a stare-off, this ending is a tad more genial.

Yep, that’s Bran smiling contently off into the distance while the Night King holds a patterned umbrella over his head and their armies just kind of relax off to the side.

“Here’s a still taken from the alternate episode 3 ending in which the Night King becomes Bran’s carer and they both live happily ever after,” Hempstead captioned the snap.

The Night King becoming Bran’s caretaker isn’t such a stretch since, as we recently learned, he’s actually a pretty nice guy IRL.

And since there are several Game of Thrones spin-off series in the works, why couldn’t there be one where Bran and the Night King go on, say, a road trip through Westeros touring the best bed and breakfasts or something?

You hear that, GoT creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss? The heart wants what the heart wants.
