George R.R. Martin Was Worried About Where ‘GoT’ Was Headed As Early As Season 6
 

 
The most recent book in George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series, A Dance with Dragons, ends with Jon Snow being stabbed (“for the Watch”), Daenerys encountering a Dothraki horde, and Cersei walking through King’s Landing nekkid in an attempt to “shame” her. All of those events also happen in season five of Game of Thrones — afterwards, showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss were on their own. We all know what happened next, so it’s wonder Martin had some concerns.

In his new book Tinderbox: HBO’s Ruthless Pursuit of New Frontiers, author James Andrew Miller spoke to Martin’s representative Paul Haas, who said, “George loves Dan and Dave, but after season five, he did start to worry about the path they were [going down] because George knows where the story goes. He started saying, ‘You’re not following my template.’ The first five seasons stuck to George’s roadmap. Then they went off George’s roadmap.” They went off the map, and set it on fire.

Martin (who reportedly begged for 10 seasons of Thrones) has said that “my ending” to the books will be different than the show’s ending. “My biggest issue was when they began that series, I had four books already in print, and the fifth one came out just as the series was starting in 2011,” he told WTTW Chicago. “I had a five-book head start, and these are gigantic books, as you know. I never thought they would catch up with me, but they did. They caught up with me and passed me.”

Martin is hard at work on The Winds of Winter, which is due out… eventually.

It ended the way it did because this fat lazy fu*k stopped writing.

They didn’t have any more material to work with. n*ggas had to wing it in the studio, fulfill contractual obligations and get paid so they could eat. This sh*t ain’t nobody fault but George RR Martin’s. All he had to do was finish the winds of winter and he would have had the best book turned TV show of all time.

Dude got too comfortable and now he wanna have hella regrets. fu*k outta here. Shoulda finished that epic sh*t you started n*gga. A song of ice and fire is basically Hunter x Hunter of the west

If he would have wrote the actual books instead of all those branch off bullsh*ts and other pieces we wouldn't have this problem. Also not for nothing but I didn't exactly hate the last season it was just far worse quality compared to the other seasons and they did a terrible job at shoe horning in Bron on the throne and having Danny do the super quick heel turn that sh*t made no sense. Everything else in the finale more or less tracked.

Mans should just shut the fu*k up and enjoy the rest of his fat trollish existence being filthy rich. Your name is on the bi*ch and you coulda done more by directing them or... ya know... fu*kin finishing your story.

The end of the show was garbage tho lol that is for sure

Yea I guarantee this dude didn't like how people reacted to the ending and is probably changing the story all over again.

Keep in mind, he pretty much told D&D how it ends, so he can only say so much about his disappointment on it. I'd a*sume the problem is that they rushed some of the developments. Dany's evil turn should've been a season long thing, not a couple of episoddes

What he said is the reason I never watched the show. Any show or movie based off books do what they want. I couldn’t get into the show because I was a book reader first. That being said I wish I wasn’t because n*gga taking a lifetime to write two books

Some of these authors think they're baby Tolkiens or something.

Was reading this Kingkiller series, started the first 2 in 2011. . .

Still waiting on the 3rd.

Lol this , these n*ggas sound crazy

Imagine how much it takes to create such an intricate world like Game Of Thrones’. History , geography, families etc . I ain’t mad at him at all . He finishes it when he finishes it and if he doesn’t then fu*k it , I love what he created . I want him to take as much time as he needs to create something he feels confident in instead of rushing out some bullsh*t to please some ungrateful people who don’t even respect the process and would bi*ch about it being “rushed” anyway

Even though it's been some time since it ended it still hurts to think of the garbage it became.

Clowns in here making it sound like it's easy writing books. I wouldn't know. GOT would've been better off taking a hiatus until the books were finished. Waiting years would've surely been better than that terrible ending

GoT had a chance to be the biggest tv series ever that could never be surpassed and now it’s a written off has been that nobody remembers and nobody wants anything to do with anything branching off. Crazy cause if you told me that 2018 or before I’d slap you silly.
Facts and then the annoying sh*t is HBO rushing to finish the series... But for what?? They had the biggest show in history at that time and I even forgot what show came after GOT when it finished...

Like that sh*t is backwards to me, if I run HBO and the greatest show in history is asking for 10 seasons then why the fu*k not... That show was supposed to go down as the GOAT and they totally fu*ked up
