Coming Back From Death Sucks

I actually believe Tyrek is still alive and is being held by Varys. I don't think that's too far-fetched at all, considering LF is hiding Sansa, who also just vanished as far as anyone except the readers, LF, and his accomplices are concerned, and is of the same social status and worth as a potential heir.
I'm uncertain how I'll take Jon's "resurrection" assuming he is dead. But I can't imagine his storyline is over. But I was annoyed when Tyrion survived the Battle of the Blackwater and again the near drowning because it was so just too over the top.

I doubt Jon is dead.
I'm betting Tyrek, Gerion and Benjen will also be seen again in the books but since it fits the plot i have no problem with that.

But yes, if anyone will get resurrected from now on, it will seem rather cheap.

resurrection no go: UnXY
Please, no more zombie action, I still don't quite see the point of the whole UnCat thing. UnGregor, well I think we all agree on that
I don't have a problem with Beric Dondarrion, the whole thing works for the character and added some mystery to the first books. But I want it to be a one time thing.
As for people we never actually saw dying, I say bring some back. Not too many though, I think definitely Benjen, maybe Syrio :-)

good one, never saw it that way, I change my opinion on that issue :-)

The thing I hate about resurrection is that there is no finality to death anymore. You're practically immortal and danger is a joke. I hope GRRM will keep it to a minimum, I agree about that.

Beric and Uncat are the only 2 confirmed right?
Robert Strong isn't confirmed correct? Even if it is his body im not sure his mind is still there after the dark magic of Qyburn.
As for the Aegons of the world, faking a death or leading readers to believe something at the end of a chapter is fine. Plus on guys like Aegon we don't even know the full story or if there who they say they are. I don't think it cheapens death to lead readers to believe one thing like with the axe to Aryas head to end a chapter, if anything it made me want to read even more to find out what had happened. If you don't see a death and only hear about it similar to Cersei speaking of Davos then don't believe it.

Pretty sure Davos has "died" once in every book, minus AGoT and AFfC. It's so boring.

The nice thing though, is I really won't be disappointed either way...if he does turn out to be actually dead, I would respect that. If he doesn't, or is resurrected, I don't see myself being disappointed with what that would do for the story.
