The people making Game of Thrones happen week in and week out are walking on eggshells now as they only have six more episodes to wrap this whole mess up. There's also the legions of rabid fans to contend with, eager for any bit of spoiler-iffic news they can get their grimy paws on, which makes HBO's move to shoot multiple endings to the show a savvy one.
According to Morning Call, HBO programming president Casey Bloys said that shooting multiple endings on an endeavor like this is, more or less, a necessity...
"I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens. You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re shooting something, people know. So they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end.”
Makes perfect sense, particularly when there's no official printed blueprint for what happens like there usually is with these lengthy fantasy book adaptations. The series passed GoT author George R. R. Martin's book content two seasons ago, so this is uncharted territory for every single fan, even those who've read every book. Do your thing, HBO, it's sure to work out well whatever you decide to do.
