The Red Wedding

Boyfriend and I don’t watch Game of Thrones when it airs on Sundays. We usually end up watching a couple of days later on my laptop. I’ve half-read the books and read all the Wikipedia, so I already knew it was coming.

Boyfriend knew something big happened on this episode, but didn’t know what it was.

So then we watched it.

And then it happened.

Then more of it happened:

In case you don’t know, three major characters died in a surprising and brutal way (at a wedding).

So yeah. Fuck George R R Martin. And the murder horse he rode in on. 


  1. I've seen pictures of George RR Martin, you don't have to worry about it, he's already cosmically fucked.

  2. I read the books and I knew it was coming and I was still traumatized. And remain traumatized. (Don't even ask about my mother who I think now needs therapy.)

  3. the stomach stabbing was so brutal so brutal so brutal

  4. My husband didn't know it was coming and I asked him if I should warn him and he was like, "Pssh, no, I can handle this." And then it happened on screen and he was like, "OMG WHY DIDN'T YOU WARN MEEEEE!"

  5. I don't even watch the show and this cracked me up!

  6. I'm still in the fetal position. Honestly last night's episode (which we've all watched already right?) just threw more salt on the wound.

    Sidenote: I'm totally loving the Hound. Sure he's all burnt and probably smells like something that died in a swamp but if you're going to let your 10 YO daughter wander about Westeros by herself there is no better man to entrust her to. Don't judge me!

    1. I agree... have you read the books?

  7. I don't watch Game of Thrones, and apparently I'll be better off if I don't start. Before I saw the first episode of Downton Abbey earlier this year, I knew that Matthew was going to die at the end of the season. It was very disconcerting to watch him carrying on, totally unaware of his impending death, except the actor knew because he wanted out of the show.


  8. I'm infinitely amused by the interwebs and everyone that watches GOT that hasn't read the books. The murder doesn't stop and it only gets worse. Run now. MUahahahahahahaha.

  9. I refuse to start reading Book series until they are finished because I cannot stand to wait.

  10. I still haven't seen the episode and I'm SO nervous incase I accidentally find out what's happened... xx

  11. I read the books at the same time a close friend of mine did. We vowed never to watch that episode. Well, she watched it. This morning when she tried to tell me about it, she started crying again.

    I. Will. Never. Watch. That. Episode.



  12. I was sad about Robb, but when I got to that scene in the book I almost threw a party because YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYY CATELYN STARK IS DEAD. :D

    ....of course if you liked her, I apologize for being insensitive...

  13. I have not seen it, yet, still working my way up to it, because I just got online access to watch HBO. I know what happens, though, and I, too, and scared. So scared. Yet I will force myself to watch it anyhow!

  14. Would you believe I haven't seen a single episode. think I want to read the first book and see how I like it. If I like it.
