Well, I am certain that many of you are still either feeling satisfied or still raged about the finale of Game Of Thrones. There was one predictability about it though and that was how epic shows usually end with a divisive audience. Some of the greatest shows of all time have never managed to make its audience entirely happy or satisfied and Game Of Thrones was just another example of that. Except Breaking Bad though! I mean it is Breaking Bad after all.
Anyway, coming back to the point, the finale still continues to have some after effects and guess who just weighed in with his take. The man himself, George R.R. Martin. The author of A Song Of Ice and Fire series and the creator of all these characters had something to say on the finale of the series.
The author took to his personal blog as a means of addressing the Game of Thrones conclusion. The HBO fantasy series' ending, in which Jon Snow (Kit Harington) kills Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) while Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) assumes the crown, may or may not be the same ending Martin has in mind for his series of novels. At this point, fans simply do not know, as Martin has not yet finished the last two books in his planned seven-novel series.
"How will it all end? I hear people asking. The same ending as the show? Different" writes Martin. "Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes."
"I am working in a very different medium than David and Dan, never forget," he adds. "They had six hours for this final season. I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3000 manuscript pages between them before I'm done… and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, I'll add them."
Additionally, as Martin points out, Game of Thrones killed certain characters from A Song of Ice and Fire earlier than their deaths in the book series, some of whom may never die at all."Book or show, which will be the 'real' ending? It's a silly question," writes Martin. "How about this? I'll write it. You read it. Then everyone can make up their own mind, and argue about it on the internet."
Classic George Martin indeed!
