Re: SPOILER *all five books* THREAD FOR Game of Thrones (TV series discussion)
So, last night during an Emmy Panel sitdown discussion with the cast, there was actually a few revealing things.
GRRM said "There will be several more people taking the throne before the end." Not really sure why he'd come out and say it, but he did.
Also it was revealed D&D know the end. GRRM told them. So therefore, I think you have to look at their version of the HOTU a bit differently now.
They also confirmed the long held rumor they got to do the show because GRRM asked them who Jon's mother is, and they answered correctly. Which too, is a bit of a spoilerish thing, since Benioff has said in the past when asked about it in interviews, that he subscribed long ago to the R+L=J thing. So...if he believed that, one would assume he guessed it when GRRM asked.
Really odd panel, to be honest. Because they revealed quite a bit for really no reason. They didn't have to.
