AMC felt the wrath of the well-timed spoiler when they posted one about a character death on their The Walking Dead Facebook page an hour before the West coast aired the episode. Another show that often has folks up in arms about spoilers and trying to prevent their book reading friends from spoiling for them is George R.R. Martin and HBO‘s Game of Thrones.

That is to say that it will be forced to move on through the arc of the story without Martin’s books to guide them.

George R.R. Martin was recent speaker at the Writers Guild West Awards and dropped a bombshell on Game of Thrones fans while talking with the press afterwards.
