    but you didn't (do)

    Hello,

    ''I reckoned you were gonna die by the time I loaded you on the wagon, but you didn't.''

    This is from the 6th episode of the TV series 'Games of Thrones.' What I'd like to ask is whether or not we can put 'do' after 'didn't' at the end of the sentence above?

    Thanks.

    No. You could put "die," but it makes it a bit redundant.

    Thanks for the answer. Is it because the word 'die' is an intranstive verb?
