Part of what makes George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, and HBO's Game of Thrones series based on them, so great is the fact that these characters are often in real peril. But that can also drive fans nuts—and this hilarious clip pokes fun at that fact.

Not to get into any spoilers here, but Martin is famous for taking risky chances and killing off characters with reckless abandon.

But in case all that uncertainty is scaring you away from the franchise, the comedy team at The Second City Network has a message for you: It Gets Better.

Well, kind of.

Okay, not really.

The video is a spoof on the commercials for the It Gets Better Project, and is packed with spoilers for much of the series. So watch at your own risk if you're not caught up on your Thrones lore.

Check out the clip below.

What do you think? Do you like Martin's gutsy moves, or do you miss all the characters we've lost along the way?
