Week one-ninteen of Operation Graphite – theme: Game of Thrones.

Shock - The Viper and The Mountain

Sunday is the last episode in season four of Game of Thrones, plenty of time to have your heart broken as another favorite character dies. Does George R.R. Martin have a sick desire to emotionally crush all of his fans, is he actively rebelling against normal narrative conventions and predictable formulas, or is it kind of like Whedon’s reasoning behind killing off popular characters? Unless any character can die at any time, you will never truly be afraid that a character will not survive an obstacle. Perhaps it’s a little bit of all three. I’d say there are four or so characters from A Song of Fire and Ice that will be sticking around for a while, but all those other characters, death is just waiting for the right time. And in the end, all men (and women) must die.
