‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 Will Have Even More Character Deaths

Published 2 years ago by

Gird your loins lords and ladies, because if you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, you should be fairly warned that the future (at least the immediate one) is not going any less bloody: more death is on the way. NOTE: This article is SPOILER-FREE. 

As you can check out in the video from 2013 Emmys red carpet, Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington promises that season 4 – which will cover the second half of book 3, A Storm of Swords, in author George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series – will feature more character deaths than any previous season. Yikes.

Considering that we’re coming off a season 3 that saw one of the most controversial TV episodes and character deaths of recent memory, it’s really saying something that Harrington proclaims more bloody ends to come in season 4.

Of course (and as always), fans of the novels already have plenty of idea what’s in store; but then again, the “Rains of Castamere” taught us that even those who think they know what’s coming can still be taken by surprise by how grisly showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff can be with their creative adaptation of the material. And with Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin’s recent rumblings about wanting to create a villain worse than Breaking Bad‘s Walter White/Heisenberg, who knows how dark HBO will get with its execution (no pun) of the closing half to A Storm of Swords.

So hold on fans of the show and fans of the books, alike. We’ve told you that this is a show playing by different rules, where no one is safe, and little is sacred.

On final thought: Let’s not be so quick to be so cynical: Maybe the deaths that Harrington is mentioning will involve some of those insidious characters we wanted to see meet a miserable end for quite some time. Could Game of Thrones balance the scales and finally give us some justice?


We’ll find out when Game of Thrones returns for season 4 in Spring of 2014.

  1. Without spoiling things, I can’t wait to see one particular scene.

    • You know nothing Dazz

      • Haha. Brilliant.

        *runs back to Castle Black*

      • ok, thanks, but i think the best way to watch it is ACCESSTV INFO website

    • yup When the little bastard joffrey drinks the poisoned wine.lol

  2. Now all the jerks who read the book give spoilers…… Now!

  3. I can think of several in my head right now…

  4. NOTE: This article is SPOILER-FREE.

    No it isn’t. In fact the title already is a spoiler. I didn’t wanna know that the next season has even more character deaths. Yes, it already takes the surprise out of it. Unfortunately I couldn’t avoid that spoiler, because I took in that headline with one glance before realizing what it was about. The curse of being a quick reader, I guess…

    • At this point, in the context of GoT, a SPOILER would be: “Nobody Dies in Sason 4 of ‘Game of Thrones’”.

      If you aren’t expecting a shocking twist death(s) and/or epic battle in episode 9 of season 4, then you have not been following along with the past 3 seasons.

      And with more characters always coming in, how much of a spoiler is it, really, that some go out? Apparently the star of the show didn’t think it was wrong to blatantly state it for the world to hear…

      We do draw a spoiler line, and I’m not sure I agree this was on the wrong side of it. To each their own, though. We do try to keep readers happy in this area :-)

      • Should be a little sooner than episode 9 this time around…

      • Yeah, I think I’ve overreacted a bit there. Of course I expect more deaths, but when I read that title I thought there would be MORE deaths, as in: a higher number of characters die in Season 4 than in Season 3. That would be a spoiler in some way. I know that people will die, but I don’t wanna know how many, if that makes sense. ;)

  5. I love watching non book readers not know what’s going to happen. Bring on the PW!

  6. I’m ready for anything now. Like, seriously.

  7. This show has become a cliched, spelled out for u dumb fest.

    • It’s not cliche at all. Go back to watching Big Bang Theory.

      • +1 to Kingslayer

        Seriously. If this is cliched and spelled out for you then I’d hate to know what kind of shows Lord Varys likes to watch because GOT is one of the most intelligent, twist-laden shows on TV (the only other examples I can think of that haven’t finished airing like Spartacus and 24 are The Following, Low Winter Sun, The Newsroom and Orphan Black).

  8. Just finished A Storm of Swords, should be another great season.

  9. Season 4 is going to be interesting. There are lots of exciting things in the book…people who haven’t read them are going to get their minds blown.

  10. I wish GOT wasnt based on books and nobody knew what was coming and nobody could spoil it for the rest of us. I never read the books but heard what would happen last season and was pissed.

    For all the shock that scene had last season imagine if nobody knew what was gonna happen? I know series or movies based on books is great but I really like shows that arent based on books and cant be spoiled.

    Its what makes a show like Breaking Bad or the Sopranos so good because nobody knows how it ends.

    • I haven’t read the books either but knew what was coming last season and know some of what’s going to happen next season but that doesn’t make it any less exciting to watch or any less impactful.

      Can’t say anything about Breaking Bad or The Sopranos though because I’ve never seen The Sopranos and BB seemed totally boring so I quit watching it.

  11. Just look forward to the one character that comes back

    • ooh Lady stoneheart .:)

  12. Cat of the Canals, Lady Stoneheart, The Red Viper vs The Mountain, Joffery’s wedding, Tyrion and Tywin Lannister, Alayne Stone in the Vale, The Crow’s Eye, Lord Commander Jon Snow, The King at the Wall, The King Beyond the Wall, Strong Belwas and his old squire Arstan… Did I miss anything? I cannot wait for next season…

  13. Really there is little addictive series like this. Who has not watched should regret

  14. For all those who read the books, don’t be so quick to post spoilers. There are already some subtle differences from the book. For example, Jamie and Brienne have already reached King’s Landing before Joffrey’s wedding, whereas in the book they arrive afterwards. Also, Shay is more prominent in the TV show than in the book which will be interesting to see how they handle her going forward. In fact, in the book, John Stark’s wife doesn’t even come to the Red Wedding nor is she pregnant. In the TV show, she’s the first to die. So ya never know.

    • you mean Rob Stark
