For as often as Game of Thrones fans have questioned whether Season 6 may indeed spoil George R.R. Martin’s unpublished books, a major twist from Sunday’s “Blood of My Blood” may have answered a literary mystery sixteen years in the making.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fallout from Game of Thrones Season 6's tearful “The Door,” amid news that the title revelation serves as one of three unpublished twists author George R.R.

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comes to the major twists in store, without necessarily feeling that HBO’s version would reflect George R.R. Martin’s unpublished novels.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book readers have taken small comfort in knowledge that the HBO series may not necessarily reflect George R.R. Martin’s unpublished books.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.

Debate rages as to how far Game of Thrones Season 6 will veer away from George R.R. Martin’s literary Song of Ice and Fire, but few would argue that HBO has taken more liberties than with Dorne, following a tremendous shift in the premiere.
