Some Characters Not Dead In “A Song of Ice and Fire” to Die In Season Five

All men must die, but in Season Five, some may die sooner than we expected. As the upcoming season of “Game of Thrones” approaches, George R.R. Martin has given us even more reason to be careful about who we get attached to. In a recent interview, the author of the epic series, A Song of Ice and Fire, upon which the TV show is based, confirmed that characters not yet dead in the books will meet their fates in the upcoming season. “People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy.

Visions of the Future: Is This the Original Outline for the Books that Inspired Game of Thrones?

A love triangle between Jon, Arya, and Tyrion? Jaime becoming king of Westeros? Daenerys killing Khal Drogo? It sounds like some far-fetched fan-fiction, but each of these events are from the original outline of A Song of Ice and Fire, which shows George R.R. Martin had an extremely different story in mind when he first sat down to write what he expected to be a trilogy.
