Game of Thrones Season 5 Will Troll You With Surprise Deaths

By   /   Feb 17, 2015

George R.R. Martin is either a highly loved or highly hated person, but one can’t deny the genius in his brutal imagination, which has grasped the world in the form of A Song of Ice and Fire, and to even a larger extent through the television series Game of Thrones.

The fifth season of the TV adaptation of Martin’s books will premiere this April, but the author wants all the fans to be on their toes for some ‘death surprises’.

Anyone who’s watched interviews of George R.R. Martin would know of his delightful yet morbid sense of humor, and he was at it again at the Writers Guild West Awards on Saturday.

“People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy.”

“Everybody better be on their toes. [Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] are even bloodier than I am.”

Martin had previously revealed on Conan last year that Irri, Walder Frey’s wife and Qarth merchant Xaro Xhoan Daxos were a few unfortunate ones who were going to kick the bucket (a phrase that is infinitely less gruesome than how their probable deaths would be), but the American author is a clever fellow who likes to play mind-games with his fans.

Sophie Turner, who plays as Sansa Stark, had also told The Huffington that fans should be prepared for a ‘traumatic’ season 5.

“There’s some massive moments, perhaps even more shocking than the Red Wedding type of thing. There’s a lot going on this season. There’s also, you know, a lot of blood, a lot of death.”

Game of Thrones season 5 will return to HBO on Sunday April 12. Till the, prepare your napkins and stock up some antidepressants.
