The final season of Game of Thrones is looming larger and larger on the horizon. In only 25 short days we'll all be living in the same calendar year as it, and there are a lot–a lot–of unanswered questions which need sorting out.

That said, we've just got a bit more insight into what the deal is with Cersei Lannister's pregnancy, which a lot of fans have been rightly suspicious about.

Cersei's not exactly the living embodiment of valor and honesty, and she managed to wangle a deal with Tyrion Lannister in part because he believed that she had a baby on the way.

However, as Metro reports, scripts published by the Writers Guild of America West show Cersei was, for once, not lying. The script for 'Eastwatch', the fifth episode of season seven, contains a lot of extra info in its stage directions, which you're obviously never going to get unless you're extraordinarily skilled at reading Peter Dinklage's eyebrows.

It all points to Cersei actually being pregnant. "She nods, it’s true," runs one set of stage directions. "Her happiness is contagious. They get another chance at family. This time with no one standing in their way."

Later on there's even more confirmation: "Tyrion sees what he sees and knows what it means. He can hardly believe it, but knows it to be true…she stays silent for too long, long enough to tell him that he’s right. And once she knows he knows, she can think of nothing else to say."

So there we go. She's definitely, definitely pregnant.
