But it's a move that makes sense, as this is the culmination of everything that Game of Thrones will have been building towards for almost a decade at this point.
Well, the writers haven't let us down this far so let's hope they knock this one out of the park.
"I know in 'Game of Thrones, ' the ending, they're going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens", Bloys said in a recording of his Moravian College speech released and first reported by The Morning Call. "When you're shooting, people know", he told an audience at a USA college. "So they're going to shoot multiple versions so that there's no real definitive answer until the end", Bloys added. Projects such as AMC's "Breaking Bad" or HBO's "The Sopranos" managed to keep prying eyes away from their work by going with multiple scenarios for the ending of their story. In King's Landing, Cersei Lannister has seized the Iron Throne by incinerating the High Sparrow, his followers and her rivals in the Sept of Baelor.
GAME Of Thrones bosses are shooting multiple endings for the show to stop the epic finale from being leaked. We did fake some scenes. The episode was quickly copied and shared online.
In July this year, hackers compromised HBO's network systems and demanded a ransom for the final two episodes, as well as stealing the company's social media accounts.
"Game of Thrones" wouldn't be the first series to try such a tactic to avoid spoilers from leaking out before an episode airs.
A premiere date for Game of Thrones season eight is yet to be announced, but is expected to be sometime in 2019.
