Some type of spinoff to HBO’s Game of Thrones has been expected since we the fans, and especially HBO, realized how big of a hit it was. The world that the “Song of Ice and Fire” series is set in runs so very deep with history, it can be overwhelming to try to take it all in. It would be crazy not to bring some of those other stories to life. There’s a wealth of great tales to be told—especially ones that happened before the events of the show—such as Robert’s Rebellion, the Children of the Forest (seen above), the fall of the city of Valyria, and so many more. That’s why it was no great shock to find out that, after the main series wraps up, a prequel was more likely than a spinoff.
Now comes news even more exciting than just a potential prequel. It’s being reported that not one, but FOUR different potential Game of Thrones spinoffs are now being developed, and four writers have signed on to work on them along with George R.R. Martin.

Milus Corbett (Stephen Moyer) tries to slake their vengeance thirst by giving them one of the men that detroyed their village. Toran has a good old time torturing the man, in one of the most gruesome torture scenes ever. Annora (Katey Sagal) starts pulling bloody thorns from her body, then brings them to Father Ruskin (Timothy V. Murphy) with a warning.
