SERIES FINALE

Co-creators DB Weiss and David Benioff on the series finale: 

“We want people to love it. It matters a lot to us," Weiss said. 

“We’ve spent 11 years doing this. We also know no matter what we do, even if it’s the optimal version, that a certain number of people will hate the best of all possible versions. There is no version where everybody says, ‘I have to admit, I agree with every other person on the planet that this is the perfect way to do this’ — that’s an impossible reality that doesn’t exist. I’m hoping for the Breaking Bad [finale] argument where it’s like, ‘Is that an A or an A+?’”

 

Added Benioff: “From the beginning we’ve talked about how the show would end. A good story isn’t a good story if you have a bad ending. Of course we worry.”

 

HBO boss Casey Bloys, for his part, teased that fans will be "really really happy" with how the series will conclude. 

"The only thing I will say as a fan of the show is that I think the guys have done a brilliant job of ending the show in a dramatically satisfying and emotionally satisfying way," Bloys said. "I do believe that fans are going to be really really happy with how it all wraps up.”

 

New Season 8 Intel From Cast

  •  Lena Headey (Cersei) revealed to ET that season 8 will surprise viewers at "every turn."
  • Rory McCann hinted that the Hound will get the chance to come face to face with the Mountain. 

 "There will be a chance of squaring up to his brother and facing those demons," teased the actor in a report. 

 

BONUS SPOILER BIT:

  • Pounce is confirmed dead, according to Benioff. 

“Cersei hated the name ‘Ser Pounce’ so much she could not allow him to survive."

“So she came up with her most diabolical [execution]. Ser Pounce’s death was so horrible we couldn’t even put it on the air.”
