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 That said, Game of Thrones ran out of road early enough that author George R.R. Martin gifted a few unpublished spoilers to HBO, something Dead creator Robert Kirkman says he would never do for AMC.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.

For as often as Game of Thrones fans have questioned whether Season 6 may indeed spoil George R.R. Martin’s unpublished books, a major twist from Sunday’s “Blood of My Blood” may have answered a literary mystery sixteen years in the making.

‘Game of Thrones’ spills very little “Blood of My Blood” for an otherwise hugely revelatory hour for book readers, but were the big showdowns in Kings’ Landing and with Sam’s family all flash, no substance? And what should we make of that huge Season 1 return? Find out in our full review!

We’re still processing the fallout from Game of Thrones Season 6's tearful “The Door,” amid news that the title revelation serves as one of three unpublished twists author George R.R. Martin gave to HBO, but there may yet be another wrinkle. “Hold the Door” reveals the origin of Hodor’s name, but one Martin says will unfold under very different circumstances in the actual books.

For the first season in Game of Thrones history, fans and book readers alike have stood on relatively even keel when it comes to the major twists in store, without necessarily feeling that HBO’s version would reflect George R.R. Martin’s unpublished novels. That said, Sunday’s big Hodor twist was apparently two of three major revelations straight from the author’s pen, so what might the final spoiler of Ice and Fire be?

“While we’re at it, literally no one is allowed down here. Are the thousand chalice-candles really worth it?”
For all the myriad revelations of Game of Thrones Season 6, book readers have taken small comfort in knowledge that the HBO series may not necessarily reflect George R.R. Martin’s unpublished books. The same can’t be said of Sunday’s big “The Door” twist, as showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss say the Hodor reveal came straight from the author himself.
