Despite a wealth of source material available for mining, the Game of Thrones series wasn't afraid to deviate from George RR Martin's novels. (For better or worse.)

Now, with the dust finally settled on Thrones' controversial final season, series bosses David Benioff and Dan Weiss have revealed why one popular character from the books never made it to the small screen.

GAME OF THRONES fans are expecting a lot of events to occur in the upcoming final six episodes of the HBO fantasy epic, and although a lot of battle scenes may seem like a huge commitment, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have now spoken out about what makes them so important.

Now that Game of Thrones ’s Battle of Winterfell is over and many main characters remain alive, the survivors are ready to celebrate their victory.

Detailing their reasons for Lady Stoneheart's omission, Benioff and Weiss argued that calls for the character to appear came off the back of "one great scene" in A Storm of Swords, rather than anything more substantial (via Entertainment Weekly).

"There was never really much debate about [including Lady Stoneheart]," Benioff explained, before outlining the three key reasons Thrones fans never got to see the return of Michelle Fairley.

The first was to avoid spoilers from Martin's upcoming books, while the second was to avoid "diminishing the impact" of Jon Snow's resurrection later in the series. "We wanted to keep our powder dry for that," they added.

And thirdly, because Catelyn had such a good death at the Red Wedding. "Catelyn's last moment was so fantastic, and Michelle is such a great actress, to bring her back as a zombie who doesn't speak felt like diminishing returns," Benioff said.
