Game of Thrones Author Sheds Light on How HBO’s Ending Differs From The Books

George R.R. Martin shed lights on how Game of Thrones ends.

Over the years, since HBO dropped the last season of Game of Thrones, many fans all around the world encountered the same question: who will get to sit on the iron throne. Or in other words, how will the series end?

However, only two weeks far from now and the fans will finally be able to catch up on the final season of the series. Phew.

Game of Throne follows the epic tale of its author, George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels. The American novelist began writing on the book decades ago from the early 90s and finally published the first book in 1996.

Considering A Dance with Dragons released in 2011 that showcased one of the book' lead characters, Jon Snow being brutally stabbed and deceptively dying at the Wall, there have been four books published thus far.

Although the fans have been waiting since forever on how the book ends, they have noticed some few differences among the books and the TV shows' version by creators; David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. For instance, the additional scenes, characters, and some historical changes that can be found in the TV version, but not on the book version.

Whilst the fans can't wait to find out how the series end, Martin, on the other hand, is yet to put his pen back in between his fingers to finish the pages. In fact, the 70 years old writer is far behind Weiss and Benioff.

The writer backed off from writing a long time ago claiming that he didn't know how to end the books. However, it's certain that the book and the show will have a different ending.

Martin himself admits he has been slow with finishing the books since a long time ago. In his words, he further added: "The major points of the ending will be things I told them five or six years ago. But there may also be changes, and there'll be a lot added."

In addition, the show went a little bit beyond the point, how it resurrected Jon and validating him as being a Targaryen, and a nephew rather than the bastard of Ned Stark.

As the audiences witnessed more deaths, the strategy of the evil Night King, something they didn't find in the book version, the TV show's ending will only draw it's fans to more enthusiasm on how the book version will differ from it.

Kudos to the showrunners; Benioff and Weiss though for stepping forward to continue the TV version with their own scripts and vision so impressively and brilliantly, cause imagine having to sit around and wait for years to be able to find out the next plots and storylines.
