Why Does Everyone Die In Game Of Thrones?

Show writer George RR Martin explains all

Oh look, there goes another one. Prom poisonings to beheadings to having molten gold poured over your head, the death count in Game of Thrones keeps on rising. 

There have been 74 deaths in five seasons and George RR Martin has finally come out to explain why characters in his much loved books and TV show keep getting chopped. Literally.

"We've all read this story a million times when a bunch of heroes set out on an adventure and it's the hero and his best friend and his girlfriend and they go through amazing hair-raising adventures and none of them die. The only ones who die are extras." he told  Galaxy's Edge Magazine

"That's such a cheat. It doesn't happen that way. They go into battle and their best friend dies or they get horribly wounded. They lose their leg or death comes at them unexpectedly."

We learnt not to fall in love with any GoT characters from season two and with season six only half way in, we have seen an additional 14 deaths to add to the body count. This number will probably double as we sit down to watch the finale. Grim.

Why do we watch this show again?
