Default Game of Thrones S3 E9, "The Rains of Castamere" [Spoilers]

It's finally hit.

If the Red Wedding was a bit too intense for you, then perhaps this Tolerable Edition will be more bearable.

Having read the books, I've been waiting for this scene to happen since the series began, simply to see all the fans who haven't read the books reactions. And it's been awesome! Never before in a TV show have I seen so much anger, confusion, upset or what can quite accurately be described as shellshock. All I've heard from people in work today is 'What the fuck!?'.

Even knowing exactly what was going to happen didn't make it any easier to watch though. Love the part when the Rains of Castamere starts to play and Cats expression as she looks at the band.

I'd read the book, and pretty much quit reading for a month or so after it, it really made me pissed off. I've not seen the episode as I have Virgin and don't have access to Sky Atlantic but I've read how it happened and it seems the TV show made it even worse.

In the book the wife isn't present at the wedding, because they deemed that her presence would invoke problems, she's also a Lannister to which they thoroughly changed, as soon as I saw that I figured she'd get the boot. In the book she stays at Riverrun and after the wedding there's a big siege of it, but now, there's no wife, no unborn child and I think that makes it even harsher.

I think my anger stemmed from the fact now who is there to fight the war, it kind of came to an abrupt halt for me. The guy who'd never lost a battle was betrayed at a wedding and in a terrible fashion to. In the book they cut his head off and replace it with his wolf's head.

Once I got over it and spoke to some others who'd read further on, I felt better and I started reading it again.

SPOILERS

Rains of Castamere is the Lannister battle anthem. Describing them destroying a rebellious bannermen clan. When at the wedding the musicians start playing that song, it's the sign for the Frey soldiers to take action.

Mind=Blown.

I threw the book across the room when I read this part and watching the episode just made it all that much worse.

George R.R. Martin, why you do this?

Give a man a match and he will be warm for a day.
Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

Not just battling them, they wiped them from the face of the world, every man, woman and child.
