"Game of Thrones" director Miguel Sapochnik recently revealed that he wanted far more carnage during the Battle of Winterfell. I was up for killing absolutely everyone. I wanted it to be ruthless, so that in the first 10 minutes you say, 'All bets are off; anyone could die.' The director said that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the creators of the HBO series, wouldn't let him kill too many characters.
