Casey Bloys, the president of HBO, recently made an interesting claim regarding the way in which Game of Thrones producers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss intend to throw even the cast off the scent of the show’s climax.
Bloys stated in a recent conversation Pennsylvania’s Morning Call:
I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really knows what happens. You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re shooting something, people know. So they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end.
Digital Spy noted that “this attempt at subterfuge in terms of the ending is probably necessary, considering that hackers threatened to release spoilers…on a weekly basis throughout the most recent season.”
It is still uncertain whether the final season will air next year or in 2019. This summer, Benioff said, “We honestly don’t know yet [when the final episodes will air]. There’s been a lot of back and forth about air dates. That’s a long way off from being settled.”
