The Game Of Thrones Series Finale Would Have Been Very Different If An AI Had Been In Charge

Game of Thrones had a crack team of writers working on every episode, from Benioff and Weiss to the occasional work of George RR Martin himself. But maybe it didn’t need it.

In a recent video by College Humour, the comedians behind that YouTube channel performed “The Game of Thrones Finale Rewritten with AI,” a wonderful exercise in absurdist narrative, with doppelgangers, delicious breakfast, and everyone’s favourite location—Winterfell’s Best Room.

The stage directions are a real highlight, with notes like, “Sansa gets closer to him and then takes out a large spear and pushes it into Jon’s stomach. He looks concerned.” As well he should.

No word from this video on the exact methodology behind making this script, though the practice of feeding writing to some primitive learning-based AI and seeing what it spits back out is a well-worn meme at this point. But those memes are rarely this funny, or performed this entertainingly. Or feature this many Jon Snows.
