This ought to please Ben: morally ambiguous characters. Goody-goody gets beheaded in the first season. And it’s only the beginning (David is at book 5, and the first book is very subtle compared to the blood bath from the 7 kingdoms’ war).
But the author (authors?) of this MTV article is an idiot: it’s all in the book, dumbass! So no, you are not doing big spoilers, they’re just following the book’s plot line. There’s no wanting for X or Y to die, and another to live. It’s already written. The only thing you really can wish upon is which TV rendering they give to the original book story line. The rest is utter non-sense. But hey, what can you expect but that from an MTV lowlife?
Hum, that was one nasty rant. Time to ease on the coffe. :-)
