Game of Thrones interview confirms our worst fears for the series finale
We're going to say this once, nice and clear so there'll be no hate mmkay?
This post contains spoilers. Don't @ me.
Okay, phew. Now the formalities are done, let's get down to business shall we?
The annual INTV conference was held in Jerusalem yesterday and while we'd love to say the event was filled with canapés and unbridled gushing over our fav flicks...
Something bad happened you guys...
Francsca Orsi, Senior Vice President of Drama at HBO, has strongly implied (like, almost fully said it) that every single character on Game of Thrones is going to bite the dust come curtain call.
In fact, her exact words were, "one by one".
Speaking about a table read for one of the last episodes, Francesca explained that the whole cast cried and clapped for 15 minutes they were so overwhelmed.
“It was a really powerful moment in our lives and our careers," she explained at the panel.
"None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths.”
'BUT WHYYYY?!??!?!' we hear you scream.
Well, because we're going to be gifted with not one, not two, but up to five spinoffs.
"It feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it,” she said of the spinoffs. “That’s why it spawned three, four, five spinoffs.”
Five kind of seems like a lot TBH but there's a more serious matter at hand:
Is everyone really going to die? And, for the sake of spinoffs or nah?
