“Game of Thrones” director: That book spoiler was never going to happen this season
“It is really sort of, what are we doing with that?” Alex Graves says of the spoiler the book fans have been buzzing about all season. “How does it play into the whole story in a way that we”re really going to like? It just didn”t end up being a part of what was going to happen this season. And finally one (more) reason: In case you didn”t notice, a lot happens this season … To add that in is something they opted out of. But what”s funny is that it was never going to be in the season, yet it took off on the Internet like it was going to happen.” PLUS: This proved the show is superior to the books, the cruel irony of book reader frustration, the biggest differences between the book and the show, characters are wilder on TV than in the books, costume designers stitch secrets into the actresses” gowns, George R.R. Martin threw out the 1st pitch at a baseball game, Can “Game of Thrones” improve the disliked “A Feast for Crows”?, What is Arya”s iron poker chip?, listen to the choral version of the theme song from last night”s finale, watch a tribute to all the dead from this season, and why “Game of Thrones” can”t possibly have a satisfying ending.
