Surprise — it's another 'Game of Thrones' death!

Every time HBO's Game of Thrones series veers from the original plotline, a tiny part of each devoted book fan's soul dies. Well, prepare for an onslaught of emotion and fury from GoT devotees because author George R.R. Martin recently announced that there are a lot of unexpected deaths coming on the new season of the HBO series.

"People are going to die who don't die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy," Martin reportedly said at the Writers Guild West Awards on Saturday. "Everybody better be on their toes. [Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] are even bloodier than I am."

Just what every GoT fan wants — surprise deaths.
