The showrunners’ plans for the ending
David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the showrunners of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” have said that they have known the ending of the show for years. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, they said that they pitched the series to HBO with a rough idea of how they wanted it to end.
“We’ve had a plan since the beginning,” Benioff said. “It’s not like this is some scoop that we’re sitting on for future seasons to wring more money out of HBO. We wanted to tell this story from the beginning, and when we got to the end, we didn’t want to change things just because people might want something different.”
Weiss added: “We’ve been talking about this stuff for 20 years. It’s pretty intense, but it’s exciting too.”
The showrunners have not revealed any details about their plans for the ending of “Game of Thrones,” but they have said that they are sticking to their original plan. This has led to speculation about what will happen in the final season of the show.
The cast’s thoughts on the ending
While the creators of Game of Thrones have remained tight-lipped about how the series will end, the cast has had a lot to say about their experience filming the final season and their thoughts on the ending.
Kit Harington (Jon Snow) told Entertainment Weekly, “It was emotional to leave the job definitely. But I wouldn’t say it was sad. If anything, you kind of get nostalgic about it.” He added, “You’re thinking, ‘God, I wish we could do this again. It was fun.’ It was a great time in everyone’s life.”
Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) echoed those sentiments, telling HuffPost, “It was bittersweet. It’s always sad when something comes to an end that you’ve been working on for so long and that you love so much… but it’s been 10 years, so it kind of feels like it’s time.”
Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) said she was “gutted” when she finished filming her final scene. “When they calledaction for the very last time, it really felt like something huge ended,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “It was really emotional.”
Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) told Refinery29 that she had a similarly emotional experience. “The day that I wrapped Game of Thrones, I cried — not on set,” she said. “I cried in my car afterwards when I drove home by myself… It wasn’t just because Game of Thrones was ending; everything in my life was coming to a giant close.”
The crew’s thoughts on the ending
###Warning: Spoilers below for those who have not seen the series finale of Game of Thrones###
The series finale of Game of Thrones has left many people with mixed feelings. Some are satisfied with the way things ended, while others are disappointed and feel that the show could have ended better. So what does the crew think about the ending?
Creator David Benioff said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, “It was to our benefit to end when we did. The hardest thing for any show is to know when to finish.” He added that they had numerous conversations with George R.R. Martin about how many seasons the show should go on for, and they eventually decided that eight seasons was the perfect amount of time.
Meanwhile, co-creator D.B. Weiss said in a separate interview with EW that they “wanted to try and find a way to make [the ending] feel as emotionally correct as possible.” He added, “The only way we could’ve ended it is if it was everything people wanted it to be…and then some.”
It seems like the crew is pretty happy with how things turned out in the end, even though some fans may not feel the same way. What do you think about the series finale of Game of Thrones?

How the books will end
George R.R. Martin has not yet finished writing the books, so we don’t know for sure how they will end.
The most likely scenario is that Martin will finish the books and they will be published. In this case, the events of the books will diverge more and more from the events of the TV show, until eventually they are completely different stories.
It’s also possible that Martin will die before finishing the books. In this case, there are a few options for what could happen. The most likely is that his estate would hire another author to finish the series based on his notes and outlines. It’s also possible that the TV show would continue without the books, or that a different ending would be devised for the TV show.
George RR Martin’s plans for the books
George RR Martin has not yet finished writing the books on which the Game of Thrones TV series is based. He has, however, given some clues as to his plans for how the story will end.
In an interview with60 Minutes in 2015, Martin said that he knows “roughly where [the story] is going”. He also said that the ending will be “bittersweet” for fans, with some characters meeting happy endings and others not so much.
Martin has also said that he plans to kill off a major character in the upcoming seventh book of the series, The Winds of Winter. He has not revealed who this character is, but fans have speculations.
Killing off major characters is nothing new for Martin. In the TV series, several major characters have been killed off while still alive in the books. This includes Ned Stark, Robb Stark, and Catelyn Stark. It’s possible that more characters will meet their ends in the books before the story is finished.
The showrunners’ plans for the books
While the show has deviated from the books in many ways, there are still some major elements that have yet to be revealed on-screen. For example, the show has not (and likely will not) reveal the true identity of Jon Snow’s parents: Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. However, the showrunners have said that they know how George R.R. Martin intends for the books to end, and they’re sticking close to his vision.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss said they’ve had “many conversations” with Martin about his plans for the ending of both the books and the show. “We know where things are headed,” Benioff said. “And while there are certain key things that have to happen along that route, we also try to keep ourselves open to changes and surprises.”
One of those key elements is who will sit on the Iron Throne in the end. In the books, there are a number of contenders: Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, and even Bran Stark have all been put forward as potential candidates. However, it’s looking increasingly likely that Bran will be the one to take the throne in both the books and the show.
The cast’s thoughts on the books
Many of the cast members have read the books and have their own thoughts on how the story will end. Some believe that Jon Snow will be the one to finally sit on the Iron Throne, while others think that Daenerys will be the one to take control. There are also those who believe that there will be no one sitting on the throne at all, and that Westeros will be plunged into darkness. Whatever happens, it is sure to be an epic ending.
