5 Things From The Original Game of Thrones Pitch That Would've Changed EVERYTHING
George RR Martin’s made some serious plot changes in the last 20 years...
The original plotline for Game of Thrones has been leaked and my, is it different.
Taken from a letter from daddy of the series, George RR Martin, to publishers, the three page document reveals what could have been.
Biggies that would have changed the game entirely had they happened are as follows:
The Yung Lion Puts A Ring On It
Joffrey (who no surprise is still a d-ck in the original plotline) manages to marry Sansa and father a son. As if it was even possible, Sansa’s luck is possibly even worse in GOT 2.0 (or should that be -0.5?!) - she chooses to stick Lannister over Stark, a choice she later “bitterly regrets”. DUH.
Jaime Kills Everyone, Including His Dad, And Blames It All On Tyrion
Despite his seething arrogance, there’s something about Jaime you can warm to in the TV series. In Martin’s original, he goes on a mad one, killing everyone closer to the throne than he is, including his dad Tywin. Jaime blames everything on Tyrion and then puts himself on the throne.
Tyrion Cuts To The Chase And Ditches The Lannisters
Tyrion gets out of one incestuous scrap heap, only to land himself in another one. Ditching the Lannisters for the Starks, he heads up to The Wall with Arya and Cat, only to fall in love with Arya. Trouble is, Arya’s already in love with Jon Snow - because one inappropriate storyline won’t do. Jon and Tyrion end up hating each other. Sigh.
Cat Gets Murdered, Again
But this time by white walkers. FFS Cat.
Mother Of Dragons Kills Khal Drogo, Invades Westeros
The latter part of this is a given, we guess. The former though? Probably revenge for the fact she was sold off by her brother and then raped multiple times.
