DEADLINE: With over 10 million viewers watching the 9 PM broadcast and growing each week, plus all those on the other platforms, I think it’s pretty clear they are going to stick around, if for nothing else to see what brews up between Jon and Dany…
ALAN TAYLOR: (Laughs) There’s been an inevitability to the two of them coming together. It’s been foreshadowed over and over again, and those who know the books know it’s inevitable, but that doesn’t tell you anything about how it’s going to play out or how it’s going to go. I remember when I was doing Season 1 and we were on location in Malta, and George R. R. Martin came to visit. He was sitting in a chair, and he was being really quite open about things that were to come…
DEADLINE: About Jon and Dany or Game of Thrones in general?
ALAN TAYLOR: Bit of both, but it was early days and nobody was paying attention to the show. We didn’t really know what a phenomenon it was going to be, and I think he was being less guarded than we’ve become since then. Anyways, he alluded to the fact that Jon and Dany were the point, kind of. That, at the time, there was a huge, vast array of characters, and Jon was a lowly, you know, bastard son. So it wasn’t clear to us at the time, but he did sort of say things that made it clear that the meeting and the convergence of Jon and Dany were sort of the point of the series.
So, I was happy that a big step forward was taken in the episode I got to do this season is where he has fallen for her both, you know, emotionally and politically I think. He recognizes what she’s capable of, and is ready to bend the knee as soon as his knees bend. There’s still a step further to go with them in terms of the romantic side of things and a lot more to play out in terms of how the politics and the power struggle will work, but it was at least a sort of solid step forward in that major arc.
Listen, I fucking hate the Teen Wolf tag on here because it’s only made up of whiney little pieces of shit who continuously complain about the LITTLEST things. Y'all this is our last season, ENJOY IT. Don’t shit post on everything and ruin it for everyone else.
Okay so Stiles is barely in the episodes? So what? Yes, I love Stiles more than anything in the world but Teen Wolf is more than just one character. Scott McCall, Lydia Martin, Malia Tate, Liam Dunbar and Mason Hewitt do not go through shit everyday for you to not notice them.
Do not be like the humans in Beacon Hills.
Appreciate every character and all they have done for us. Appreciate every writer, director, producer, PA and even set cleaner God dammit.
This show has given you happiness and good times. Even the moments you cried were special. Don’t shit on something you once loved.
I love Teen Wolf and I will not let butthurt people, especially the crazy part of the Sterek fandom (and before you say shit I AM Sterek fandom as well), turn something so important to me sour.
Everyone who says shit about the show will be unfollowed by me without any hesitation. Fuck this. It’s the last season and I’m gonna appreciate the fuck out of it.
My most utter respect to George R. R. Martin. He spent 20 years building his main couple throughout 5 long ass books (plus the other 2 yet to be released) this is patience and commitment in a whole other level.
