With the premiere of the final season of Game of Thrones last night, the end of the superb HBO series is fully underway. As I assume most all of you know, the show is based on the A Song of Ice and Fire novels written by author George R.R. Martin.

The show surpassed the story as far as where the novels were at, as it takes Martin some time to write the books. Fans have heard here and there for some time that the books and the show will have different endings. However, in an interview with 60 Minutes Martin revealed that the endings of the books and the show won’t be, “that different”. You can check out what Martin had to say below.

“I don’t think Dan and Dave’s ending is going to be that different from my ending because of the conversations we did have, but they may be on certain secondary characters, there may be differences. And yeah, some of the people will have that. There will be a debate, I’m sure. I think a lot of people who say, ‘Oh, Dan and Dave’s ending is better than the one George gave us, it’s a good thing they changed it.’ And there will be a lot of people who say, ‘No, Dan and Dave got it wrong, George’s ending is better,’ and they will all fight on the internet. There will be debate, and that’s fine. The worst thing for any work of art, be it movie or art, is to be ignored.”

Martin has been involved with the making of the show to varying extents throughout its run, and has even written an episode or two himself, so this isn’t really that surprising. What the differences will be exactly? Hard to predict, but one thing is for sure, Martin is absolutely correct that the fans will argue until the end of time which ending was better, this also tells me that while Martin says the endings won’t be too far apart, they will be different enough to spark debate.
