A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin is more excited than anyone to find out what happens in the latest season of Game of Thrones.

Will Sansa break bad and die? Will Jon and Daenerys commit the first unintentional act of incest on the show? What will be Arya’s body count for the series? Martin wants to know as much as we do.

“I’ll be honest, my first three books were amazing. I was inspired!” explained the bearded Westeros creator.

“But after that I completely lost my way.

“I mean, book four didn’t have any of the three best characters in it. Most of it was about Brienne wandering around looking for Sansa, despite the reader knowing she was somewhere else entirely.”

Martin went on to confess that he has no idea where the story is going in his novels.

“I just ended up bringing in new pointless characters, writing about boring stuff and not progressing the narrative.

“But those Game of Thrones showrunners are right on top of it!

“And people actually get naked!”
