It was bound to happen sooner or later. Just recently Game of Thrones showrunner David Benioff told THR that eventually there will come a day in the not so distant future where the TV series will catch up to the books and end up spoiling stories that have not been published yet in the novels.
“We’ve been talking about this with [author] George [R.R. Martin] for a long time, ever since we saw this could happen, and we know where things are heading,” David stated. “And so we’ll eventually, basically, meet up at pretty much the same place where George is going; there might be a few deviations along the route, but we’re heading toward the same destination.”
Benioff explained: “I kind of wish that there were some things we didn’t have to spoil, but we’re kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. The show must go on…and that’s what we’re going to do.”
What do you guys think? Should the TV show spoil the novels or take on a different approach? Sound off in the comments!
