Since the first four episodes are officially released for the fifth season of Game of Thrones, there are certain things quite clear. The most important among them is the possible death of Barristan. The 4th episode ended with a horrifying image – maybe Barristan is dead. The same could have been said for Greyworm but that seems a bit unlikely. In the books, both the characters are still alive but that hasn’t stopped the show from doing what freedompop review wants before. Here are a few characters that were already dead in the show but not so much in the books at that stage –
Jojen Reed – In the show, a weak and already dying Jojen was killed by his sister who couldn’t see him suffering. In the books, however, his fate is unclear. There is a popular fan theory that he could be dead, though.
Grenn – Grenn is already dead on the show where he fought the giant and killed him, but also died in the process. In the books, however, this member of the Night’s Watch is still pretty alive.
Talisa/Jeyne – The show included her in the number of people killed at the Red Wedding. Her unborn child was also killed. In the books, she is still alive and would become a part of the upcoming book’s prologue.
Other characters with a similar fate include Joyeuse Erenford, Pyat Pree, Rakharo, Irri and Mago.
