The Winds of Winter will have an exclusive twist which won’t happen on Game of Thrones, as it involves a character that the show has already killed. Speaking to IGN, George R.R. Martin revealed that he has decided to do the twist after years of contemplation.
“I have decided to do it. Will you know it? I don’t know. It is fairly obvious because it is something that involves a couple of characters, one of which is dead on the show, and not dead in the books. So the show can’t do it, unfortunately, because they have killed someone I have not killed.”
Martin also spoke about the delay in release of the sixth book and the show surpassing his novels. Check out his full interview below.
