Game of Thrones Bittersweet End

George R. R. Martin has thrown some light (or darkness) on the fate of the Game of thrones saga. Although no spoilers or secrets are being given, Martin has suggested that those who are expecting a happy ending might be disappointed. The Game of Thrones creator prefers the bittersweet ending which more accurately portrays the reality of fulfilling a quest and returning home, akin to the style of Tolkien in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The sixth season is scheduled for April 2016 on HBO.
