Second: When you acknowledged fact that pilot episode had serious issues in script, why didn't you hire additional help in later seasons when you decided to omit, merge or change lot of story-lines from Feast and Dance, especially after Season 4?

As Benioff would later admit to Variety, "we got everything wrong on a very basic level with the writing of it." He and Weiss screened the episode for some friends, including screenwriter Craig Mazin, and said, "Watching them watch the pilot was a deeply humiliating, painful experience, because these are very smart individuals, and it just clearly wasn't working for any of them on a very basic level."

One of the major issues he and others pointed out with the initial pilot was the fact that they couldn't figure out why Jaime would push Bran from the window at the end of the episode. "Jaime is lying with his sister, Cersei, and none of [our friends] realized that Jaime and Cersei were brother and sister, which is a major, major plot point that we had somehow failed to establish," Benioff remembered.
