George R.R. Martin: ‘Walter White is a Bigger Monster Than Anyone in Westeros’

Martin is taking notes from 'Breaking Bad,' so basically we're all doomed

The man who helped destroy your emotional well-being with “Game of Throne’s” “Red Wedding” apparently watched “Breaking Bad’s” “Ozymandius” episode over the weekend and though to himself, Well played, sir. I shall return volley.

Just kidding, he was way more colloquial. But still.

George R.R. Martin, the scribe behind “A Song of Ice and Fire” and exec producer of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” took to his Livejournal — so fantastic that he has a Livejournal, right? — to discuss the Emmys, but more importantly, how Walter White stacks up against the blood-thirsty folk wearing period clothes in the world of “Game of Thrones.”

“Amazing episode last night,” GRRM said in his blog post, referencing Sunday’s brutal seg of “Breaking Bad.” “Talk about a gut punch.”

He continued: “Walter White is a bigger monster than anyone in Westeros. (I need to do something about that.)”

Wait, what?! No!

No, no, no.

Not so much because no one can be worse than Walter White, but more because I don’t think the collective blood pressure of the American television audience can handle so much stress. After all, this is how people reacted to the TV version of GRRM’s “Red Wedding”:

Blend that with the devastation from “Ozymandius” and people are liable to pass out in front of the televisions.

Other highlights from GRRM’s blog post include the writer stating that while “Game of Thrones” could “upset” “Breaking Bad” for this year’s best drama Emmy, “There’s no way in hell that anyone is going to defeat ‘Breaking Bad’ next year, when their last season is the one in contention.”

For what it’s worth, Martin’s “current mood” while writing this post on LJ was “thoughtful,” which really means the wheels are turning in his head for doom and destruction within Westeros. Thanks Bryan Cranston, thanks Vince Gilligan, thanks everyone for the stressful TV, and see you at the Emmys.
