Well, that was one of the things I like about Game of Thrones too often you get characters that have bad things happen too multiple times (Jack Ryan for instance, the world would be safer if he was kept in a cell ), his ethic of character A does something affects plot, dies or murdered or has an accident conveniently keeps from that happening.
Well the Jack Ryan character has managed to stop a nuclear confrontation, got chased and nearly got by the IRA, nearly got killed in a Helicopter crash, I could go on, one of those things happened to me I would worry that I was getting too close to the edge... Where if he was a Martin character, he would do one thing and get dead!
