The ending of 'Game of Thrones' is hidden in this Spotify playlist

The ending of 'Game of Thrones' is hidden in this Spotify playlist”

"It matters a lot to us", said D.B. Weiss, who along with David Benioff created the series that is based on the novels of George R.R. Martin.

These two pivotal players in Game of Thrones appeared in a sketch themed around the show. And in the latest Game of Thrones season 8 featurettes, they reflect back on their time on the show and how it changed their lives forever. Weiss, the creators and showrunners of the popular HBO series, have helped curate a Spotify playlist called Game of Thrones: The End is Coming.

"We also know that no matter what we do, even if it's the optimal version, that a certain number of people will hate the best of all possible versions", Weiss told Entertainment Weekly in an interview that was published on Tuesday.

"Emilia, you're in the show, you know already", he said.
Stark uncle Benjen, the First Ranger of the Night's Watch in early episodes, had an even longer gap between being presumed dead in the first season and riding to the rescue of Bran and Meera beyond the wall in the sixth. The relevance of "Burn the Fleet" by Thrice (Viserion, we bet you think this song is about you), "Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes (ahem, seven kingdoms), "Love Is Blindness" by U2 (Dany and Jon?) and "Killer Wolf" by Danzig (hey, Ghost) is pretty obvious, but there are some that are a little less on the nose. We're certainly happy we got through production without a leak.

Judging from what's here, we have the possibility of the destruction Westeros itself and more nihilistic approaches from some of its characters, lethal weapon work from many of its characters, and the ideas of being born into power, dying for a cause, and sneaking up on your enemies.

According to estimates, over one billion people will tune in for the final six episodes of the epic series.
