The Game of Thrones winter to end all winters is coming, and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) seems to have nothing but bleak platitudes to offer in regards to the series finale. Humph.
Adopting the cryptic speaking style of his GoT character, Hempstead Wright told The Hollywood Reporter, “It won’t go the way some people want. It will be too happy for some people, or too sad, or too whatever. That’s the nature of an ending...When it comes to a conclusion, this is the end.” Thanks, Confucius.
The GoT star went on to reiterate, “Nothing more is coming, and the certainty of it being over will definitely bother people,” before adding, “But overall, I think we’re going to smash it.”
In addition to his pat on the back, the real-life Bran said, “I think [the final season] ends up being more fast-paced. When you’re heading into a finale, you don’t want to have any unnecessary episodes. You want to be going, ‘God, we didn’t have enough episodes! I want to know where it’s going next!’”
With so much uncertainty surrounding the fate of the Seven Kingdoms and the impending threat of the Night King, we’re left to wonder: Will six episodes be enough to tie up the GoT narrative? Too bad we have to wait until 2019 to find out.
