'Game of Thrones' season 6 news: George R.R. Martin discusses major plot twist in 'The Winds of Winter'


The hit HBO series “Game of Thrones” have already caught up with the books that it was based on, the epic fantasy saga “A Song of Ice and Fire.” When the upcoming sixth and new season gets released, the TV series will have original content as “The Winds of Winter” is yet to be released. With some fans getting worried that the TV series might spoil whatever’s in store for them for the sixth and upcoming book, author George R.R. Martin reassured them that the TV series would not be able to spoil at least one major plot twist.

In a recent interview with IGN, Martin reassured fans that while the TV series would go on showing original content, it will take a different story as that of the books.

“Some of the ‘spoilers’ you may encounter in season 6 may not be spoilers at all,” Martin said. “Because the show and the books have diverged, and will continue to do so.”

Add to that the plot twist that Martin had in mind for “The Winds of Winter,” which is something that the TV series can never pull offfor the series already killed the character, while he or she remains alive in the books, as of the final moments in “A Dance with Dragons.”

“I have decided to do it,” Martin said about the mystery plot twist. “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.”

After missing several deadlines and failing to make it before the sixth season of the TV series premieres, Martin decided not to set any release window anymore. “Game of Thrones” season six will premiere on April 24.
