We weren’t the only ones disappointed by the developments of Game of Thrones season 8.

The final season in the saga was considered by both critics and fans to be a let-down regarding plot and character development, which seemed to have fallen away.

But rest assured, there is still hope that our beloved characters will get the ending they deserve — thanks to their original creator, George R. R. Martin.

When asked whether the ending of the HBO of series would have any effect on the ending of A Song of Ice of Ice and Fire, Martin told The Observer, “No, it doesn’t. It doesn’t change anything at all. You can’t please everybody, so you’ve got to please yourself. Some of [the theories] are right and some of [the theories] are wrong. They’ll find out when I finish.”

Sadly we have no time frame for that…
