The Game of Thrones sequence finale, “The Iron Throne,” aired on Sunday and it was divisive. Not everybody loved how writers/showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff wrapped things up for the present that started again in 2011.
The ebook sequence on which the present is predicated, George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire,” nevertheless, may need a special ending. The creator wrote on his blog today that the ending to his ebook sequence, which finishes with The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring, is perhaps totally different than the TV present.
Or perhaps not.
First off, he stated he is aware of he is late with The Winds of Winter, however he guarantees that “it will be done.” He is not able to decide to a launch date, however he burdened that it will likely be completed, after which A Dream of Spring will comply with. But how will all of it finish?
“The same ending as the show? Different? Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes,” Martin stated. “I am working in a very different medium than David and Dan, never forget. They had eight 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. And of course the butterfly effect will be at work as well; those of you who follow [my blog] will know that I’ve been talking about that since season one.”
Martin added: “There are characters who never made it onto the screen at all, and others who died in the show but still live in the books… so if nothing else, the readers will learn what happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell, Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan the Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both great and small that viewers of the show never had the chance to meet. And yes, there will be unicorns… of a sort…”
But what would be the “real” ending to Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire? Martin says that may be a “silly question.” Instead, Martin stated followers ought to get comfy, sit again, and purchase his books to learn how all of it ends.
“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,” he stated.
