Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin may be feeling a little of the sulkiness that fans are experiencing after the series finale aired on Sunday, because the author just penned a blog post about the ending he wanted for the series and how it differs from the controversy-laden goodbye that HBO left us with.
“How will it all end? I hear people asking," Martin wrote on his blog. "The same ending as the show? Different? Well…yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes." All right, George, that really cleared up a lot… (JK.)
Martin continued by comparing the length of time HBO gave the final season (a serious pain point for many viewers) to the endless pages he has for the final novels.
"I am working in a very different medium than David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss], never forget," he wrote in reference to the HBO adaptation showrunners. "They had six hours for this final season. I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3000 manuscript pages between them before I’m done…and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, I’ll add them." Thank the seven gods.
