‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Season 9: ‘Game of Thrones’ Episode Plot Revealed?

Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 9 Game of Thrones

Weeks ago we heard the unusual if exciting news that ‘Game of Thrones‘ showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss had penned one of the upcoming episodes for ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘ season 9, inviting a host of comparisons as to how the Paddy’s Pub gang might tackle the world of Westeros. Now, series star Charlie Day has gone on record with the episode’s plot, but is it the ‘Game of Thrones’ parody we’d hoped?

As it turns out, Benioff and Weiss shyed away from injecting any ‘Game of Thrones’-style storytelling into the episode, opting to play in another show’s sandbox without necessarily bringing in any of their own toys. Charlie Day recently spoke to IGN in promotion of his role in ‘Monster’s University,’ laying out the origins of Benioff and Weiss’ episode, as well as the installment’s plot:

It’s not very ‘Game of Thrones’-y, I’ll say that much. It’s more [Benioff and Weiss] doing ‘Sunny’ than them doing their version of ‘Sunny.’ It’s sort of a ‘Flowers for Algernon’-type story about Charlie getting smarter than [he] has been in the past. It’s a good story, it’s a funny episode.

Elsewhere, we know relatively little of ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s ninth season, which premieres this September on FX’s spin-off network FXX. Another fun bit of buzzing TV crossover however, the new episodes will feature a guest appearance from ‘Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul!

We’ve included the most recent ‘Always Sunny’ season 9 teasers below, so in the meantime tell us in the comments what you want to see from Charlie, Dennis, Mac, Dee and Frank in season 9!
