The sixth season of Game of Thrones made clearer than ever where author George R.R. Martin draws the line at confirming book twists spoiled by the HBO series, but that doesn’t mean the Game of Thrones creator signs off on every adaptational change. Showrunners reveal that Martin has at least a few disagreements with the HBO adjustments, even if he’s “a grown-up and a gentleman about it.”

The mystery of Jon Snow’s parentage over the years became more of a waiting game for Game of Thrones fans, one with an answer that famously greenlit the HBO series in the first place. We haven’t heard author George R.R. Martin weighing on any of Game of Thrones Season 6's big reveals, but it seems the author had covertly tipped his hand to Jon Snow’s father at least as early as 2002.

Now that we’ve all swept up our jaws from the floor after Sunday’s “Battle of the Bastards,” Game of Thrones is already gearing up for its sixth season finale. “The Winds of Winter” are rising, even if Kings’ Landing seems anything but cold, with Cersei’s fiery trial and more looming in the first trailer.

Going on three seasons now, Game of Thrones fans have anxiously awaited signs of another major resurrection that Season 6 seems to have dispelled, that of the infamous Lady Stoneheart. Sunday’s “No One” in particular seemed to snuff out the last bits of hope, but according to director Mark Mylod, the fan-favorite figure has never garnered so much as a moment of discussion.

Secrecy has proven something of a sore subject for Game of Thrones Season 6, with HBO attempting to limit the availability of spoilers (even from the press), and oftentimes failing miserably. To wit, the network even amusingly offered its final two Season 6 episode releases without any description whatsoever, but Emmy ballots for “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter” tell a different story.

HBO played a bit coy in releasing only the episode synopsis and title of Game of Thrones Season 6's eighth episode, where prior foreign leaks seemingly gave away a familiar-sounding finale title. Now, sources confirm a major battle in episode 9, and a title George R.R. Martin might smirk at for the finale.

A little friendly rivalry between TV juggernauts never hurt, and we’ve certainly seen The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones tossing a bit of healthy shade back and forth. Dead creator Robert Kirkman may have escalated the conflict, however, expressing his disappointment in Thrones author George R.R. Margin giving up book spoilers, for which the zombie mogul now offers a clever mea culpa.

Apart from an army of undead and a few fake-out deaths, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones have little in common beyond vast source material fans are eager to see adapted. That said, Game of Thrones ran out of road early enough that author George R.R. Martin gifted a few unpublished spoilers to HBO, something Dead creator Robert Kirkman says he would never do for AMC.

Given all Game of Thrones mysteries and histories slowly converging back toward the series’ end, the HBO drama will inevitably omit certain fan-favorite character’s origins. So it is with Brienne of Tarth, whom George R.R. Martin now confirms to have a major tie to his prequel novellas Tales of Dunk and Egg.
