When it comes to television shows that are based on books, there tends to be a lot less surprises than we would usually expect, as we already know who is going to die, how they die, and when they are killed off. The joy is getting to see these events take place on our screens and judge whether they happened how we saw them happening in our minds.
The hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones is one of those shows that has given us a lot of on-screen deaths but, as we mentioned, we were already expecting them. However, with Game of Thrones season five just a few weeks away, it seems that we are going to get some surprise deaths on-screen, that do not actually happen in the books.
Writer George R. R. Martin has been teasing what to expect from Game of Thrones season five, when he explained, "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 and D.B. are even bloodier than I am."
This has really got the fans of the show talking, with many suggestions as to which characters we are going to see getting killed off in the new season. We do not have too much longer to wait to find out though, with the Game of Thrones season five premiere set to hit HBO in April.
Which characters do you think we will see killed off in Game of Thrones season five, who do not die in the books?
