The finale of Game Of Thrones has got everyone blowing a gasket. There’s even been a petition doing the rounds to get the showrunners to redo it. Bit harsh…

If you remember correctly, the guys who adapted the show from George R. R. Martin’s books, David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, had to decide how the series would come to an end as George couldn’t write the books quick enough for the public’s demand for the show.

So, if you’re still peeved about the show’s finale, you may be glad to hear that George has now teased his final book’s ending.

George took to his blog to update us on his upcoming novels, The Winds Of Winter and A Dream Of Spring.

He wrote: “How will it all end? I hear people asking, ‘The same ending as the show? Different?, Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes.”

Great. Cheers, mate…

But he did add some detail by explaining that some of the characters who died in the series may live to tell the tale in his books.

“There are characters who never made it onto the screen at all and others who died in the show but still live in the books… so if nothing else, the readers will learn what happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell, Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan the Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both great and small that viewers of the show never had the chance to meet. And yes, there will be unicorns… of a sort…”

I did always think the only thing missing from GOT was unicorns, so…

And to answer the question of which will be the ~real~ ending of Game of Thrones, George wrote: “Book or show, which will be the ‘real’ ending? It’s a silly question. How many children did Scarlett O’Hara have?

"How about this? I’ll write it. You read it. Then everyone can make up their own mind and argue about it on the Internet.”
