George R.R. Martin made a rare appearance at the Writers Guild West Awards on Saturday!
He brought with him some disturbing news that he unleashed on the unsuspecting audience…
People are going to die in season five of Game of Thrones who DON’T die in the books!!
We’ll give you a minute to pick your jaw up off the floor.
Martin delivered his warning, saying:
“People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy. So everybody better be on their toes. David and D.B. are even bloodier than I am.”
He’s talking about the co-creators of the TV adaptation of Game Of Thrones, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
We picture them as evil geniuses, wringing their hands menacingly, because wow they’re gonna piss off a whoooole lotta people.
While at the WGAW awards, Martin was asked how long he thinks the show will run, since it’s the hottest thing on TV right now. He said:
“Yeah, it’s the hottest show on TV now, but will it be the hottest show on TV two years from now? Hot shows come and go and television changes, and I’ve lived through that before. I certainly hope that we get to tell the entire story. Because whatever happens with the show I’m going to finish the books, it will be seven books. But each of these books are 1500 pages long and they each have enough material in them for several seasons. I have two more books, the one I’m writing right now, ├óΓé¼╦£The Winds Of Winter,’ and after that the last book, ├óΓé¼╦£The Dream of Spring,’ so those will be the two final books. But we’re talking 3000 pages of material. How many seasons that translates too? That’s up to D.B. And David.”
Wow. That… that’s a lot of pages of material.
Maybe Game of Thrones can go to season 30!! Though if Martin is right, and D.B. and David are as bloody as he says they are… maybe every single character in the books will be dead by season 8!!
Did U read the books? Are you upset/terrified/pissed about potentially shocking season 5 DEATHS?? Let us know in the comments!!
