Finding a decent way to round off a series with a massive following is never an easy task – just ask Lost creator Damon Lindelof who, seven years after the show's finale is still answering questions about his controversial ending.
But thanks to series like Mad Men and Breaking Bad, we know that it is possible to find a conclusion to please (almost) everybody. Now with Game of Thrones' final season in our sights, the question on everyone's lips is this: are we going to be satisfied when it's all over?
Of course it's way too soon to say for sure with the eighth season of GoT not expected until 2019. But today, Sophie Turner, aka. Sansa Stark, has spoken to the Hollywood Reporter about what we can expect.
While she obviously doesn't give away any actual details, she has noted that not everyone is going to be pleased with what she describes as a "bittersweet" ending for the show. She notes:
"There have been so many theories and so many discussions with what people think is going to happen — where they would like things to go, and who they would like to see in power, and who they want to see die [...] I hope there's going to be some satisfaction in that it's come to an end and that's how it goes. There will be some people who are disappointed, I'm sure, because they will want certain people to end up in certain places."
She goes on to say that she'll be "happy with whatever David and Dan choose to do with the story" after trusting them "for the past nine or 10 years of [her] life." While we'd like to be as magnanimous as Sophie Turner something tells us the showrunners are going to be in for a world of pain if the finale isn't what the people wanted...
Pleased that her character made it all the way to the bitter end – no mean feat in Westeros – Turner also goes on to describe the moment the cast sat down for the final script reading. She says:
"The first day of the actors coming in and that kind of production starting, the day where we had the final read-through for the final script, it was really bittersweet. It was hard. At the end of the very last script, they read aloud, 'End of Game of Thrones.' As soon as they read that out, pretty much everyone burst into tears. There was a standing ovation for [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss]."
We're getting all choked up just thinking about it. Armed with the biggest budget in TV history, there's a lot riding on season eight of Game of Thrones. Please don't mess it up!
