How are they going to wrap up the show with just a short amount of time left?
I was reading that the show runners decided from the outset that the story would take them something like 192 hours to create… and even though they have been changing the story all the way along, they have decided to stick to this arbitrary number of hours and that’s why season 8 looks so messy on the time front.
Meanwhile, they set this number way back when, at a time they would have expected George RR Martin to have finished writing the books and give them direction… but he still hasn’t and they’ve been off-book for a couple of seasons now.
I hope this isn’t a case of: “Oh shit, we’re out of time, cram everything into the last episode will ya!”
As long as it’s not as f-d up as the LOST finale we should be right.
