Lost co-showrunner Damon Lindelof, currently in charge of The Leftovers (which is a TV show, he’s not making bubble and squeak) reveals his love for Game Of Thrones season five episode “Hardhome” and speaks a little about the criticism that George RR Martin gave the Lost finale: “There is a schadenfreude aspect of me saying, ‘Well, I kind of hope Game Of Thrones sucks at the end, too, so they’ll know it feels to have somebody say that to you.’ But I don’t think the Lost finale sucks. And I want Game Of Thrones to end awesome, because I’m a huge fan and I have every reason to believe that it is going to end awesomely.” And Kudos to Winter Is Coming for drawing this parallel:
