Game of thrones in its entirety is a show full of drama and surprises so effective that they keep fans hooked to their seats, speculating what will happen next. Besides, the showrunners (David Benioff and Dan Weiss) are really cautious while making any statements regarding the show so as to not raise the bar of fan’s expectations. But this time, when season 6 is just twenty days away, the showrunners gave us another reason to be very very excited about the show. Because, well, they themselves are. They not only believe season 6 to be most mysterious but they also believe that this season has zero weak points.
Recently, when David Benioff was asked for the most exciting part about season 6 after watching the final cuts of all episodes in season 6, he replied, “The whole season Dan and I talk about this a lot. This is not us trying to hype it. Usually there’s an episode or two we’re kind of nervous about, that didn’t turn out as well as we hoped. This season there is not a weak episode. We had great directors who knew what they were doing, paired with excellent [directors of photography]. We thought at the script stage it might be our strongest season. Then the episodes came in better than we hoped. We’re always reluctant to say it’s ‘the best season yet’ because so much of that is in the eyes of the beholder. And Dan and I are so close to it that it’s impossible to be unbiased. But that’s my sense – watching them all together now, this is the best one we’ve done. It’s also the one I’m proudest of, because it was the hardest.”
Fans have already speculated plethora of strategies and plot twists for season 6 and going by director’s words, it is going to be worth all the hype and the wait.
