'Game of Thrones' will shoot many endings for Season 8 because the true enemy is spoilers

Written by  Josh Dickey

Who can be trusted on a Game of Thrones set?

No one. The answer is no one. Not the cast, not the crew, and certainly not the locals.

And so as production of the final season approaches, let it be known that Game of Thrones will shoot many endings, maybe three, maybe five, probably more — upholding a Hollywood tradition of spoiler-proofing a TV narrative outcome with too much riding on it not to.

Everyone knew this was coming, but now it's been confirmed, via HBO president of programming Casey Bloys, who was speaking to a group of students at Moravian College in his hometown of Bethlehem, Pa., according to The Morning Call.

"I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens," Bloys said. "You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re shooting something, people know. So they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end."

As the paper notes, most of TV's monumental finales staged phony endings — Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Dallas — to thwart all the leakers and spies and loose lips who might otherwise ruin the many surprises.
