The creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff were joined on stage by the entire cast and crew of the show. They started off by appreciating the mastermind George R.R. Martin, thanking him for taking a chance on "two producers who have never done it before".

"These last 10 years have been the best years of our lives and for everyone who worked on it, I can't believe we finished — and I can't believe we did it. We did it all together and it's over and we shall never see your like again,a said Benioff in a fitting farewell note.
