Andy | 70 comments So twitter exploded. So glad hat all those people were not spoiled. I laugh at those who are mad and refuse to watch anymore. Good riddance. If they thought this would have a happy ending.....

Larissa | 47 comments Kind of speechless, knew what was coming but still not prepared, it was a well done episode


message 8: by Chris , The Kingslayer (new)

Chris  (haughtc) | 903 comments ...and yes, y'all can say "Red Wedding" now without spoiler tags...


message 9: by *Secret*Fatty* (new)

*Secret*Fatty* (youknownothingjonsnow) | 10 comments Catelyns scream at the end was a let down for me. Loved the episode completely, just felt the actress could have done a little better job portraying her emotions while watching her son die.

I feel my true emotions about talisa shoed in this episode when she was stabbed in the belly and I literally jumped out of my seat yelling "fuck yes!" - today I learned something new, I apparently really hated her made up character 0_o .

Rahul Nath (cultofpersonality) | 25 comments Holy shit holy shit holy shit!!

Nermin  (narminstaley) | 66 comments I haven't watched the whole episode yet just the Red Wedding scene on Youtube and it was absolutely heartbreaking.

I fee..."




Catelyn was perfect in this episode. I guess the final stab made by Roose Bolton left her numb. The way she screamed, pleaded with Walder Frey and Robb for his life was the best acting by anyone this entire season.


And how good was David Bradley as Walder Frey? In ONE episode, he may have eclipsed Joffrey Baratheon and Ramsay Snow as the most despicable bastard on the show.


Perfect episode. No complaints.

Chris  (haughtc) | 903 comments Nermin, I love that.


message 15: by Jackie (last edited Jun 04, 2013 10:16AM) (new)

Jackie (thelastwolf) In the book I didn't care about Robb or his death all that much, (Grey Wind's death just about killed me) but here in the TV show, it hurt like hell to watch him die. Madden has brought Robb alive for me in way that the books never did.
But the overall book Red Wedding was much more devastating to me, it was good here in the TV show, but it lacked something. Or maybe I'm just used to the idea of it and what happened, maybe sitting with it all this time made it less traumatic.


message 16: by Chris , The Kingslayer (new)

Chris  (haughtc) | 903 comments I dunno. As many times as I've read it, and though I knew it was coming, I found myself sucker punched when it did.

I kept hoping that it would end well. David Bradley was excellent. He even lured me into feeling safe, and that bygones were bygones. The betrayal was so convincing and heartwrenching.

Poor Arya too...

Glen | 1 comments This episode gave me a bad case Post Traumatic Wedding Disorder.

This realization has scared me as well ;)


message 19: by Larissa (new)

Larissa | 47 comments Does anyone remember if in the books Catelyn suspected / clued into what was going to happen like she did in the show when she shared that look with Bolton ? Or was that just some extra heartbreak they added in... I would look it up but I don't have my books right now


message 20: by Nermin (new)

Nermin  (narminstaley) | 66 comments Yes, I remember it was the same in the book, too.


message 21: by Carina (new)

Carina (neslom) | 10 comments Shocked.

I really enjoyed Jorah, Daario and Grey Worms fighting. Good team.

It's OK, I wasn't a huge fan of Talisa either but I hated when they stabbed her belly over and over again. It was very cruel and it made me cry a lot:(


message 23: by Chris , The Kingslayer (new)

Chris  (haughtc) | 903 comments We may feel like crying, so let's laugh about it instead:

Because he killed all 140 characters."

Jackie (thelastwolf) "What the fuck is happening?" LOL


message 30: by Chris , The Kingslayer (new)

Chris  (haughtc) | 903 comments I thought I might watch it again tonight.

But after watching those reactions, I might need to wait awhile. Heh.


message 31: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (thelastwolf) They made me want to watch it again, maybe tonight if I have the time.


message 32: by Chris , The Kingslayer (new)

Chris  (haughtc) | 903 comments The wound is still too fresh.


message 33: by Jackie (last edited Jun 03, 2013 05:20PM) (new)

Jackie (thelastwolf) All the better to dig deeper into that wound.
I sound sadistic, masochistic, but I assure you I'm not...much. lol

Yeah, I'm going to watch it now, fuck Longmire, he can wait. hahaha


message 34: by Larissa (new)

Larissa | 47 comments I think I'd want to watch it again tonight because yesterday I was so focused on the coming tragedy that I didn't fully appreciate all the other awesome moments


message 35: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (thenightowl) I watched it again. As awesome as the first time. :) People's reactions were hilarious. I wonder how they will react next week if (view spoiler)


message 36: by Felina (last edited Jun 03, 2013 07:32PM) (new)

Felina I haven't read this book yet because I'm getting worried about how long it's taking GRRM to finish up the series. So I have watched this season without having read the book. I just pulled the book off the shelf and moved it to my nightstand.

My first reaction was how sad I was for Arya. She got so close, my heart just broke for her. I didn't care much for Rob's wife (I didn't want to see her die or anything but I wasn't to stressed) but I was really shocked about Rob and Catilyn. I'm really excited to see what this does to the realm.


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

God damn, it hurts.

I want to kill Frey so damn badly. I want him nailed to a rack as his intestines are pulled from him as he screams.

Rat bastard


message 38: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (thelastwolf) I'd bring him to Ramsay to play with. That would be...interesting to watch.

Amen. The fucking Squib. I'd nail his damn cat Mrs. Norris to a fencepost too.


message 40: by Larissa (new)

Larissa | 47 comments I hope they don't! :S (view spoiler)


message 41: by Chris , The Kingslayer (new)

Chris  (haughtc) | 903 comments Speaking of Argus Filch David Bradley, look at the two episodes he's credited for appearing in:

Episode 1.9 - Baelor
Episode 3.9 - The Rains of Castamere

I'd say that if we see his name on a future episode, we'd better get ready for something pretty horrible to happen.


message 42: by Jon (new)

Jon (jon17) | 54 comments My favorite moment was the silent credits. Powerful stuff.

(view spoiler)


message 43: by Iphigenia (new)

Iphigenia | 1 comments Silent credits? I remember someone screaming....oh! Wait, was that me? anyway.
I don't know what I have expected but I certainly did not expect to cry like a baby. I didn't cry when I first read the chapter. I was shocked for a while , sure. Like "What.....Wait.....What?! Did this just happen?"

But that was nothing compared to what happened today. I found myself wishing I could just stop it. Close my computer...walk away.

I think my favorite moments of the episode were all Catelyn's moments. *starts sobbing again*


message 44: by Silvana (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) Anybody knows why Rickon was heading to the Last Hearth? I thought he went to Skagos.


message 45: by Jon (new)

Jon (jon17) | 54 comments Silvana wrote: "Anybody knows why Rickon was heading to the Last Hearth? I thought he went to Skagos."

Well, it is possible they went there because we don't really know where Osha and Rickon are throughout books 3-5. We only find out that they went to Skagos later, which may have happened after they visited the Umbers. Maybe the Umbers helped them flee to Skagos?
Basically, anything could've happened, including the fact that they're not really in Skagos.


message 46: by Richard (last edited Jun 04, 2013 06:19AM) (new)

Richard Sutton (richardsutton) | 81 comments It struck me as an heroic bit of writing when I first read it, then for months I wondered how it would be managed on HBO. This morning, my wife told me there was a huge outcry against the gratuitous violence, but compared with the book, it was subtle and tasteful... well, maybe not tasteful, but I can well imagine there are a lot of very unhappy series fans this morning.

When I first read the books, too, I was struck by the intelligence of removing the distraction of the "war" with the Lannisters. ASoIF, was to me, always Jon Snow's and Arya's story. Now HBO will have to really flesh out their characters. My favorite bit of the episode was Arya's face as she saw her countrymen killed only a few yards away and was powerless to do anything to stop it.


message 47: by Evilynn (new)

Evilynn | 36 comments I was so busy watching my SO's facial expression (he hasn't read the books) that I almost didn't watch the episode. So Talisa and her plot killing baby are gone, as expected. It's a shame the Robb arc didn't get more screen time until the last two episodes, because it became apparent Madden is actually a pretty decent actor (he's always seemed very wooden to me, but I suppose one can argue that Robb Stark is pretty wooden too).

I was still more upset over Grey Wind. :(

message 49: by Rahul Nath (new)

Rahul Nath (cultofpersonality) | 25 comments Richard Madden and Kit Harington are burdened with the same curse. Great actors but the show mostly neglect them in favor of more King's Landing and Dany scenes, plus Robb Stark and Jon Snow aren't really the emoting types. When they let go of their seriousness a bit, they are actually very good. Jon's expression as he stabbed Orell, saying "You were right the whole time" was perfect.

And Robb as he got up and spoke his last word, "Mother". Heartbreaking.

I doubt they'd show DireRobb. But, you never know...
"


That was the perfect icing on the cake! That way, the Rains of Castamere music-over wouldn't hide the audible sobbing.

I'm in awe of the quality of that episode.
