You have a lot more shit to go down, characters to die and wtf moments to go just in the next few books worth of source material.

That was fucking...wow. Just absolutely brutal. The way Michelle Fairley delivered Catelyn's last words was almost unbearably intense. I've not read the books, but a bunch of my friends are huge GOT fans and I'd heard this Red Wedding mentioned as being a huge 'holy shit' moment...but I didn't really get just how much so till I saw this. I think the whole 'no character is safe' thing has been established in GOT since the moment Ned Stark's head stopped being attached to the rest of Ned Stark, but every now and again something like this happens that really hammers it home.

And here are some fans' reactions to the Red Wedding: http://www.vancouverobserver.com/tax...-spoiler-alert



The Vancouver Observer GOT reviews are really fun, by the way. I can now only think of Daenerys' lot as Team Dragon Mama...

Watched it online today and while I've not read the books I have to say I saw it coming from the very start of the episode and there were so many hints of something big going down. The extent of the betrayal was somewhat shocking but even just the whole wedding scene was a bit like "this is a bit too good to be true and something is soooo gonna happen"

I at least expected someone to put up a fight but meh...

I'm not saying it wasn't a good episode but just the way it was done was fairly predictable and the unpredictability was one of the things I liked about the first season. They seem to have lost it over the course of S2 and S3. While it still has its moment I think the fact GRRM is known for being trigger happy on the character front makes his apparent unpredictability easier to see through.

Looking forward to the season finale even if it does end on another "we're the night's watch, lets go do shit" moment like the last 2 seasons...

Reading back over my comments, I sound so jaded never mind

Sounds like I should get back into the series. I grew pissed off with the TV show after how much it seperated from the book, and forgot to include the plotlines started in a hidden fashion back in the first books (such as the seemingly forgotten bit about Beric Dondarrion), for example.

And yes, my facebooks been filled with much Game of thrones sourced whingeing.

Any favourite characters? Sansa is RAPIDLY becoming my favourite, Jamie as well. As I'm in Book 4, the lack of attention played to plot armoured Jon Snow, Arya and Dany is preferable over the more interesting characters; such as Podrick Payne/Brienne, Margeary/Cersei's battle of wills (shame that the old Tyrelle woman isn't included as much), as well as the Ironmen. Euron/Asha, can't wait to see how he plays out.

You'll see how that changes for Jon Snow at the ending of book 5 if I recall correctly. Haven't read it, but I skimmed through it and book 4 (because I do that with all books I read... still don't quite know why). Anyway, even with what happens, his fate is left open ended.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

Jon Snow does become a lot better again in the books.

I agree about Sansa, but the series really isn't doing her character any justice, barely any of her quiet defiance that she shows in the books since Ned got his head lopped of exists, she still just seems overly whiny and put down.

Thing is I think on tv too much quiet defiance could lead to us seeing the lanisters being stupid and ignorant. Also at the moment she seems really vulnerable, any defiance from her could remove that

My favourite character is sexy dragon mummy!

Given that Joffrey murdered Ros with a crossbow purely for shits and giggles and Cersei threatened to have Margaery strangled just for calling her 'sister', any actual defiance from Sansa could see her creatively and messily dead in short order. Sansa often seems like a rabbit caught in headlights, but she's smart enough to know what a monster Joffrey is and how dangerous his mother is, and when to keep her mouth shut about it.
