George R.R. Martin was on Conan O’ Brian last night to discuss his A Song of Ice and Fire series that Game of Thrones is based on, and the ginger haired host showed him some fan reactions to the Red Wedding scene from last week’s episode. Martin also offered up some insight into why he has a penchant for snuffing out main characters in his series. Basically, he wants us to be in fear each time a page is turned, which is exactly the case if you’re reading, or have read the books that Game of Thrones is based on.
The full interview is embedded down below, but if you just want to skip to Martin watching fans react to the Red Wedding you can skip to the 5:18-ish mark. Please do not watch the video if you’re trying to avoid even the slightest of SPOILERS.
