One More ‘Holy S**t’ Moment Coming On ‘Game Of Thrones’

The latest episode of “Game of Thrones” left fans shell-shocked, but gear up, because there is one more unexpected moment coming.

Two years ago, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss met with George R. R. Martin to discuss how the show should play out since he has yet to finish the final two books in his series, according to Entertainment Weekly. During the conversation, Martin spoke of “three holy s**t moments,” some of which have already been revealed.

The first was when Stannis Baratheon sacrificed his daughter, Shireen, last season.

The third and final shocker “is from the very end,” Benioff said, totally leaving us hanging. But that doesn’t mean all will be ruined for book readers, as the HBO series will likely end before Martin’s final novel is published.

“People are going to be very surprised when they read the books after the show,” Benioff told EW. “They’re quite divergent in so many respects for the remainder of the show.”

Uproxx notes that it seems a bit too obvious that the third surprise will be the confirmation of R + L = J, since that has been a popular theory for some time now.

Someone should go ask Myrddin his thoughts. Or pray to the Lord of Light Martin starts typing faster.
