George R. R. Martin Says Game Of Thrones Is Gonna Kill Characters Who Didn’t Die In the Books

Dammit.

George R.R. MartinObviously a lot of people die on Game Of Thrones. A lot of people die in A Song Of Ice And Fire, after all. But George R. R. Martin has now warned that, yep, the show is gonna start* killing people who didn’t die in the books:

People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy. So everybody better be on their toes. [David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] are even bloodier than I am.

Welp. At least twitter will be particularly entertaining when these episodes air?

Edit: They’ve totally already killed people who are still alive in the books. But there’s something about what Martin’s saying here that sounds particularly ominous. Or maybe that’s just…George R. R. Martin?
