“I think there should be some fallout,” said Martin of a certain scene in the third season, one that fans of the books should be well aware of. “There will be love and there will be death. You can’t want any more than that.
“Judging by the reaction that Ned’s death got when the television audience saw that, I think I’m going to go to some part of the world where they have no television when a certain episode airs, and I’ll hide out and they won’t find me at all,” joked Martin.
“I’ll have to hide from the internet storm as well.”
