WHO COULD IT BE?!
George RR Martin has confirmed that the upcoming The Winds of Winter will have a twist involving a character who has already been killed off in the show. Apparently, he’s been thinking it over for a while and eventually decided to just roll with it.
Speaking to IGN, Martin said:
“I have decided to do it. Will you know it? I don’t know. It is fairly obvious because it is something that involves a couple of characters, one of which is dead on the show, and not dead in the books. So the show can’t do it, unfortunately, because they have killed someone I have not killed.”
Not really much to go on, and if you’ve read the books and watched the show you probably have some idea of who’s dead in the books/show and who’s alive… I mean like, there’s gotta be a dozen of them at least, right?
I don’t know if this actually helps.
Not that you’ll ever get to read the new book…
