Game-of-Thrones-Season-3Game of Thrones nearly halfway done

Game of Thrones exec David Benioff has said he believes that the series is “nearly halfway” through its run on TV. “There is a tendency, I think, if something goes well, you want to stick with it and just keep it going forever and ever,” Benioff said. “As much fun as we’re having with this… part of the reason we love this story so much is because it’s a single story. This very much has a beginning and an end and we’re nearly halfway there.”
