‘Game of Thrones’ David and D.B. Weiss will hide during finale
- In an online interview, Game of Thrones creators prove the backlash is impossible to ignore
- The team will be raising a glass for the finale, but not for the reason you’d normally expect
- The team have tried their best to downplay the anger of fans
- The duo are staying about as far away from the internet as possible, as praise has stayed away from Season 8
The final Game of Thrones episode is almost here, and the creators seem anything but excited for it.
Though it would be a bit rich at this point to assume the finale will provide us with all our questions answered, fans did at least get some questions answered in a recent interview where David Benioff and D.B. Weiss spoke to Entertainment Weekly.
Season 8 hasn’t gone well for the Thrones team, last week we saw a petition calling for HBO to redo the eighth season entirely, where it would stick to the source material of George R.R. Martin and have ‘competent’ writers – ouch.
It seems that fans burning the show to the ground hasn’t gone unnoticed by those that say they work so hard on it. In the Entertainment Weekly interview, Weiss said: "We'll be in an undisclosed location, turning off our phones and opening various bottles”, with Beinoff adding he intended to be “very far from the internet”.
It seems then that the duo will have their heads in the sand for this airing, and with accidental leaks about the upcoming episode, now earning the title ‘worst ending in TV history, it’s clear to see why.
The interview also seems to suggest the team is very much hopping on their dragons and flying away to their ivory towers. Benioff added: "A good story isn't a good story if you have a bad ending. Of course we worry. It's also part of the fun of any show that people love arguing about it."
Let’s see just how much ‘arguing’ the finale sparks tonight.
