Ursula K. Le Guin was (and still is) hailed as the queen of science fiction and speculative fiction, and you can catch her documentary on PBS until this Sunday!
While the fanbase for Game of Thrones is in a frenzy as the final season looms (under a week away!) the question that remains on everyone’s minds is: how will it end? Theories abound on how the epic fantasy show will reach its much speculated conclusion but surely the cast knows, right? Right?
According to this article from The Huffington Post the answer to that is: Maybe not. In an interview, co-showrunner David Benioff told reporters that the actors working on the show ‘think’ they know how it ends. He goes on to say the higher ups have been employing deception to mask key details, perhaps falsifying scripts or even telling the actors what’s happening onscreen is something completely different than what will end up in the final cut of the show.

The showrunners could just be deliberately lying just to throw fans off of the scent and perhaps to avoid harassment of cast members for potential spoilers but there’s also the really possibility that they could be telling the truth as well. Maybe even the cast members have been kept in the dark about the ending and been fed false information by the showrunners/writing team. Of course, it begs the question of how the showrunners were able to keep their crew in the dark, but with the wonders of editing magic, its certainly possibly!
What do you think? Have the cast of Game of Thrones been kept from knowing too much? How do you think the show will end? Feel free to let us know your theories in the comments!
