During HBO’s Facebook livestream of the Game of Thrones premiere’s red carpet on Sunday, show runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss confirmed reports that Obama will get to watch the hit show before any of us.
“When the commander-in-chief says, ‘I want to see advanced episodes,’ what are you gonna do?” Benioff said
(The correct answer, of course, is to say, “thank you, sir, but you’re just gonna have to watch it Sunday nights like everyone else.” But that isn’t the answer they gave.)
HBO is being exceptionally secretive with Game of Thrones this season — so much so that it has decided to not send out any advance copies to media or industry insiders. That leaves only two ways to know the fate of Jon Snow ahead of time.
This is the first season of Game of Thrones that will go beyond the novels in a major way (whether or not the books take a different narrative path is unknown, pending George R. R. Martin actually sitting down and finishing the next one). Even if everyone is pretty damn sure Jon Snow is coming back , HBO is keeping everything very quiet until each episode airs.
Unless, of course, Obama gets overzealous and tweets spoilers ahead of time.
I think if President Buhari want Nigerians to forget about fuel crisis now he should also lobby his way and get the advance episodes and air it live on NTA. lol
WINTER IS COMING
