Throughout the first half of Game of Thrones Season 5, many fans were growing restless, since there wasn't much actually happening in Westeros and Essos. The action picked up considerably in the second half, capped off by the action-packed final three episodes, "Hardhome", "The Dance With Dragons" and "Mother's Mercy". If Emilia Clarke's statement is true, then it seems that series creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff will eschew the elongated setup that any fans didn't like about last season, and get straight into the action.
Game of Thrones Season 6 will be the first time that both readers of George R.R. Martin's books and faithful fans of the show won't know what to expect, since the series is actually surpassing the books. There is the possibility that George R.R. Martin finishes his long-awaited sixth book, The Winds of Winter, before Season 6 debuts, but we're not sure if that will happen or not. What do you think about these new Game of Thrones details? Are you glad that this season will be more fast-paced than the last?Read More
