“Game of Thrones” Season 3 finale: Where does the show go from here?

There is a ticking clock, as co-producer David Benioff explains: “We can’t wait too long because of the kids. Issac’s voice is changing. Everyone is getting bigger. We have this wonderful cast, but we don’t have an infinite amount of time … We don”t want to become a show that outstays its welcome and tries to turn each book into three seasons. Part of what we love about these books and the show is this sense of momentum and building toward something. If we tried to turn this into a 10-season show we”d strangle the golden goose.” PLUS: This was an excellent finale for giving us a deeper glimpse of the power dynamics among the survivors, it was disappointing for not giving much plot movement or major twists, meet Theon’s mysterious tormentor, this episode had one of the most romantic scenes on TV, the final scene would’ve been better if it wasn’t essentially a rerun, and Season 3: Books vs. TV show.
