If you thought George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books were traumatic before, you can thank Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan when it all gets SO MUCH WORSE. In a new post on his LiveJournal, Martin shared his thoughts on Breaking Bad, calling it an "amazing series" and commenting that Walter White more even than any character in his books—and how he should "do something about that."

From the post:

Amazing series. Amazing episode last night. Talk about a gut punch.

Walter White is a bigger monster than anyone in Westeros.

(I need to do something about that).

When George R. R. Martin says that he needs to "do something about that," it's not something you take lightly. A Storm of Swords came out like 13 years ago, and there are people that still aren't over the Red Wedding. Seeing it happen on Game of Thrones earlier this year just reopened barely healed wounds. It's astounding to think it can get any worse than that, but if anyone would be able to find a way, it's this guy. 

Goddamnit, Walter White.

Martin also took the time to comment on the upcoming Primetime Emmys, saying that he believes Game of Thrones has a shot at winning the Emmy given the "splash" that the Red Wedding made. You can read the full post below:

This is the final season of BREAKING BAD. I think GAME OF THRONES may have a shot at upsetting BB for this year's Emmy (only a shot, though, I think they are the clear favorite), which pits us against their previous season... but 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.

Admittedly, trying to handicap the Emmys is a mug's game. You never know. But for what it's worth, I think this year is our best chance of actually winning one. Given the splash the Red Wedding made, our profile is likely as high as it is ever going to be. We had a great season. If the Academy is ever going to give their ultimate accolade to a fantasy show (something that is by no means certain), it's going to be this year, I think.

But we'll see. BREAKING BAD, MAD MEN, DOWNTON ABBEY, HOMELAND, and HOUSE OF CARDS will have something to say about that as well. All good shows, I think. A couple are great shows. HOMELAND is the defending champ, MAD MEN's won four, and HOUSE OF CARDS has that whole "gamechanger" thing going for it. Should be an interesting race. We'll all know on September 22.
