“I think that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss did a tremendous job, and they took into consideration what the fans want, as well as what is right as far as storytelling is concerned. I guarantee there’s going to be lots of surprises and shocking moments, but it’s really very compelling stuff.”

“I wrote the writers when I finished reading and just said, ‘I don’t think you could’ve done a better job at finishing this story.’ To me, it was very satisfying but also very surprising and all the things that I was hoping for, “Waldau had said.
“It still made sense. It wasn’t like one of those where the killer is suddenly revealed in the last act, and you go, ‘Oh! I didn’t see that coming.’ Here, they’ve done a really, really good job.”
