Buy Game of Thrones Merchandise

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff & Dan Weiss recently spoke at an SXSW panel where they were asked about the various leaks & spoilers that keep coming out and how they feel about it. Benioff commented:

“It’s virtually impossible. I’m the kind of viewer or reader where I just don’t want to know about stuff… I want to be surprised by things. So I just kind of work under the assumption that a lot of people are like me and people who are desperate to find out everything beforehand will probably find a way to do it. And that just is what it is… The CIA can’t keep information private.”

Weiss added:

“In Season 1 there were 10 million people who had spoilers about Ned’s death in a book, and somehow the season still worked. And the Red Wedding there were people watching who didn’t know this was coming.”

He later joked:

“Should we just tell everybody what the ending is? It’s a lot of work to shoot this. We could just tell everyone.”
