Whether you're a huge Game of Thrones fan or just know the show by reputation, you almost certainly recognize that George R.R. Martin doesn't have any problem killing off his main characters. Without spoiling anything from the finale of the most recent season, it's safe to say that this reputation for death is well earned.
That's why Flavorwire's round up of all characters featured in the pilot and their current state of existence is pretty darn interesting. While the post is full of spoilers, I can tell you that their final score card shows that only 45% of the characters in the pilot are still alive.
I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait to find out who kicks the bucket in the next season.
