D&D talk about the ASOIAF books and GOT Season 6 and 7

4 Signs Game of Thrones Season 6 Is Changing The

In a new podcast, showrunners and main writers of GOT, D&D talked in detail about the ASOIAF, and GOT.

Highlights from the podcast:

They and GRRM have had disagreements. But, GRRM understands why they make certain changes for the TV show format.

• Characters they miss after having killed them off: Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo, Jack Gleeson as Joffrey

• Battle of the Bastards was hard to film because of the time/money constraints. They didn't have the time for a battle like this in season 1. They praised Miguel Sapochnik for how he directed the episode. They especially liked the scene where Jon was being crushed under the bodies and trying to climb his way out.

They confirm that there are only two more seasons are left

• They don't have a definite episode count for the seasons, but they will be shorter than 10 episodes


• They know the ending already of the books

Will Cersei Lannister and Euron Greyjoy hook up in Season 7?

game of thrones biggest season seven questions a

Basically the theory is that:

-Since Yara and Theon beat Euron to the punch with the fleet to Daenerys, that now Euron will go to Cersei as she is now another powerful queen thats sitting on the Iron Throne.

-Also that Euron might get into Cersei and want to have sex with her since she is also a "godless" woman now because she burned down the Sept of Baelor

-Cersei might also be willing to ally with Euron for his fleet because she'll probably want it to protect herself now that she sits the Iron Throne

-There is also a book prophecy that might be foreshadowing of a Cersei + Euron hookup

Lena Headey: Septa and Gregor scene was originally much worse



Whereas Septa Unella's fate at the hands of the Mountain was left ambigious in the season finale Lena Headey revealed that we were originally going to see more of what happened:

"It's so filthy. It’s so great. Everybody’s witnessed what happened with the two of them... I don’t think people will be able to help going, ‘Yes!’ But it’s so depraved, it’s brilliant. The scene was meant to be worse, but they couldn’t do it. This is like the tame version. It’s pretty bad still, though. I’d take being exploded in the Sept over that any day."
