I knew [that I was going to kill Robb and Catelyn] almost from the beginning. Not the first day, but very soon. I’ve said in many interviews that I like my fiction to be unpredictable. I like there to be considerable suspense. I killed Ned in the first book and it shocked a lot of people. I killed Ned because everybody thinks he’s the hero and that, sure, he’s going to get into trouble, but then he’ll somehow get out of it. The next predictable thing is to think his eldest son is going to rise up and avenge his father. And everybody is going to expect that. So immediately [killing Robb] became the next thing I had to do… I’ve stated numerous times that I anticipate a bittersweet ending.

  • me:margaery didn't deserve this. she was clearly planning to save herself and her brother, and to have her character arc cut off like that was just so ugly and disrepectful. her storyline had better be brought to its full fruition in the books, because she is a fascinating, complex character that deserves more than what she was given this season
