The conclusion of the final season of Game of Thrones generated a great deal of heated discussion. Though opinions differ, there was a great deal of resentment. Fans were split between those who were furious and those who were okay with the way things worked out. Despite being blamed for the huge controversy, the showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss seemed to have moved on, with their Netflix show 3 Body Problem.

Game of Thrones showrunners had to practice letting go

The Game of Thrones finale controversy was one of the biggest in television history. In a recent interview with Mashable, D.B. Weiss talked about dealing with the backlash and moving on with 3 Body Problem. He said,

“I mean on the one hand it’s impossible to not hear that on some level. We’re not particularly plugged in, by design we unplug from the hive mind reactions to things. But it doesn’t mean we didn’t know what that reaction was. You kind of need to practice letting go.”

Game of Thrones showrunners say there was  no way “to do justice to the show”

Weiss admitted he had no way of pleasing everyone with the show’s ending. He said,

“There’s no way to do justice to the show that you’re working on, especially one on this scale, if your eyes are on the rearview mirror the whole time,” he said. “You kind of need to practice letting go and focussing on the moment that you’re in, because the moment that you’re in is long – it took five years to make this show – and it just wouldn’t have served this show very well to be constantly seeing it through the lens of something else, if that makes any sense?
