GAME OF THRONES: Not Even George R.R. Martin Knows How The HBO Series Is Going To End

The final season of Game of Thrones is still shrouded in secrecy, but surely the author of the books upon which the show is based knows what's going to happen... right? Not according to Martin himself...

HBO recently released the first trailer for the final season of Game of Thrones, and while it gave fans some idea of what to expect from the finale of the mega-popular fantasy drama series, not even the writer of the source material knows exactly how it's going to end.

George R.R. Martin gave showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss a rough outline of his plans for the conclusion of the Song of Ice and Fire saga years ago so they'd know what to work towards, but since then the show has diverged - sometimes pretty significantly - from the events of the books, and Martin has also made a few changes to his story in the interim.

During an interview with EW, the writer discussed the upcoming eighth season of the show, and made it clear that he's still in the dark about some of the big events of the finale.

“I haven’t read the [final-season] scripts and haven’t been able to visit the set because I’ve been working on Winds,” Martin reveals. “I know some of the things. But there’s a lot of minor-character [arcs] they’ll be coming up with on their own. And, of course, they passed me several years ago. There may be important discrepancies.”

At the very least, the show won't spoil everything that's going to happen in the final two books once they're published. Martin is currently working on The Winds of Winter, which still doesn't have an ETA.
