Earlier this year, the "Game of Thrones" cast leapt to the defense of its much-maligned final season in front of a boisterous crowd at San Diego Comic-Con, blaming the backlash on negative media coverage.
The finale's audio commentary additionally revealed that within the finale Jon Snow (Equipment Harington) didn't stroll into the throne room meaning to kill his lover/Queen Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).
Immediately after, her sole surviving dragon, Drogon, picks up her lifeless corpse and flies off with it to parts unknown.
While fans were disappointed to see the decline of the Mother of Dragons, nobody was more disappointed by her than her dragon child Drogon, who set the Iron Throne on fire and took away Daenerys' body.
That's because we're reporting that Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss have revealed Martin also intends for Bran Stark (played by Isaac Hempstead Wright in the TV show) to become king of the Seven Kingdoms in his yet-to-be-published novels.
Benioff revealed that Drogon did not eat Dany's body in a recent making-of documentary about the series finale.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Benioff addresses the theory in the new season-eight blu-ray release during a commentary conversation with Clarke. He's not a cat. "If [Daenerys is] not going to sit on it, no one's going to sit on it", he said. "She's a fierce warrior, although you don't see a lot of hand-to-hand combat with her, she's ready to fight to the death", she says in a Game of Thrones Season 8 behind-the-scenes featurette titled When Winter Falls.
The final season of "Game of Thrones" will be released on blu-ray and DVD on December 3.
