Are you ready for the fifth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones? Sure you are. You have that leaked Season 5 trailer committed to memory. Over the summer, you devoured every single world George R.R. Martin has wrote. You’re wondering what will happen to Arya, Jon Snow, Daenerys, Tyrion, and possibly even the ever-salty and complex Cersei Lannister. Well, according to Showbiz411, try not to get too attached to your fave Game of Thrones characters. At the Writers Guild West Awards a couple nights ago, Martin revealed more characters are going to die this season.

Before you say, “NO DUH,” just hear me out. Our beloved author doesn’t just means characters in the book series. He means characters in the show. “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 [the co-creators of Game of Thrones] are even bloodier than I am,” Martin reported.

That’s right —so even if you’ve read all the books and think you’re ahead of the game, tragic surprises are still afoot for you, too. So, who’s it gonna be this season? Jaime Lannister? Arya Stark? Jon Snow? HODOR?!?! ANYONE BUT HODOR!

We’ll just have to find out come April.
