“Game of Thrones” Season 6 has premiered and viewers are appropriately shocked and hooked. Many believe that “Winds of Winter” has a major role in the way this Season is shaping out.
George R. R. Martin had tackled the issue early on in his blog when he said that the “Winds of Winter” would not happen before Season 6 of “Game of Thrones.” He also added that the natural flow of questioning would progress to “will the show ‘spoil’ the novels?”
According to Bustle, Martin revealed that the show and the books have diverged. “So when you ask me, ‘will the show spoil the books,’ all I can do is say, ‘yes and no,’ and mumble once again about the butterfly effect,” he said. “Those pretty little butterflies have grown into mighty dragons. Some of the ‘spoilers’ you may encounter in season six may not be spoilers at all … because the show and the books have diverged, and will continue to do so,” he added.
iDigital Times informs that the divergence already happened in the last season of “Game of Thrones.” Does anyone remember Stannis’s monstrous quest? The publication elaborates that even though it was not completely out of character that Stannis had Shireen burned at the stake, it was off with what happened in the battle of Winterfell. This season too is no different as Ellaria Sand and the Sand Snakes murdered Doran and Trystane Martell.
So technically, the spoilers were not actually spoilers. But Heavy reveals that there is a twist waiting to happen about a character who died sometime back on the show. Is it about Jon Snow? Heavy also informs that fans pointed on a Reddit thread that Martin has been making revisions to “Winds of Winter” as he was unhappy with the book. However, nobody knows what “Winds of Winter” is going to be about or when it will really be out.
While we wait for “Winds of Winter” release, lets just watch the “Game of Throne” Season 6.
