As the Entertainment Weekly has covered the issue this whole month with regards to their premiering 6th season of Game Of Thrones, a latest report this week talked about Jeremy Podeswa, related to his last Decembers statement that he supposedly gave regarding the upcoming Game Of Thrones Season 6 and some change in plan took place in the storyline which got influenced due to his episode “Unbowed, Unbend, Unbroken” and the criticism the show received after the insane rap scene of Sansa Stark got established in the episode, creating a massive controversy among the fans, critics, and media.

Game Of Thrones Season 6 David Benioff and Dan Weiss

So the interview held earlier where in Jeremy Podeswa said that the Showrunner David Benioff and Dan Weiss of Game Of Thrones, “were responsive to the discussion and there were a couple of things that changed as a result”, this was with regards to their upcoming show, later continuing he stated, “They did not want to be too overly influenced by that (criticism) but they did absorb and take it in and it did influence them in a way.”

To all of this the Game Of Thrones showrunner David Benioff and Den Weiss recently talked about how the show cannot get affected by the criticism and thereby can’t influence shows content said Dan Weiss, “No…I can literally say that not one word of the scripts this season have been changed in any way, shape or form by what people said on the Internet, or elsewhere.”

With the reference to the earlier statement that Podeswa made, both the showrunner said that the statement might have been misinterpreted in some manner and hence this is what came up from them as they do not agree with them:

“Jeremy is fantastic. It’s hard to know what the context was – whether or not that’s exactly what he said or he said something adjacent to that and the words got shuffled around because whoever typed it up liked the way it sounded better. Who the hell knows? He’s made completely outstanding, wonderful episodes, and is also a wonderful human being. So I have no idea if he said those actual words, but that’s just not a factual statement.”

With having the similar views David supported the though and gave in his ideas regarding this particular Criticism issue:

“The thing that’s slightly frustrating is the idea that we’re responding to criticism from last year, so therefore, we’re going to beef up the female roles – that’s blatantly untrue. What happens this year has been planned for quite some time and is not a response. We can take criticism – and certainly we’ve gotten our share of it – but hearing people look at a middle chapter of a story and make claims about the story as a whole … it’s not in any way a response to online criticism, or any other type of criticism.”

Though the last episode directed by Jeremy Podeswa in the previous raise the controversy in a huge case yet the show this year with the Game Of Thrones Season 6 is set to open with first two episode been directed by none other than Podeswa himself, the show making its release on April 24th, the Sunday at 9 p.m. ET only on HBO Networks.
