The Rains of Castamere

Monday, June 03, 2013

Well Sparkers, if you watch Game of Thrones, you know last night was a tough episode to sit through. A friend of mine and I have spent the day enjoying the wails of horror that keep coming from Facebook and Twitter. Everyone seems really upset about the whole thing.

Of course if you read the books you knew this was coming. For weeks, my friends and I have been speculating on when the Red Wedding would be. It was something that both excited us and filled us with dread. Now it's happened, and it was just as horrible as we imagined it could be.

Now, my buddy and I are on Facebook, making up fake spoilers for the show-watchers. Occasionally, we throw in a REAL spoiler...which sends us into hysterical laughter. Since it's buried in a great pile of fake spoilers, the show-watching, non-book reading folks don't catch it. And why should they? We keep picking the most unbelievable spoilers we can think of. It's really a fun game.

Winter is coming, Sparkers.

Watching it play out was pretty...horrifying. I will say there are some significant differences in the book. It makes me wonder if the writers of the show will cause themselves troubles later on.

    I kept seeing people's upset, wailing posts on Monday and knew immediately what must've happened the night before. I've read the books and am watching the series on DVD but am only partly through the first season.

I found it all kind of funny. However, I will say that reading about it was enough for me ... I do not think I need to see it acted out!

    My friends were so surprised in season 1 at what happened to Ned. I knew it was coming from when they first advertised the show. That's one of the great things about George RR Martin. He's not afraid to off someone!

    I was totally blown away by this episode and I love the show.
However, the most amazing thing was that my husband has read all the books and he didn't spill ONE secret all season. He has the worst time not spilling the beans. I can't believe he kept all this to himself.
Only one episode left and we have to wait too long for the next season!

It's true. Game of Thrones seasons always feel freakishly short, while the time between seasons seems impossibly long.

    I almost never watch a movie without reading the book first. Game of Thrones in the exception. My husband got the first book for his birthday, and I keep sneaking reads when I can. (It means keeping track of 2 bookmarks, his and mine.)

Fortunately, I don't read the chatter on the internet about shows, so I won't be affected by your evil plan!

There is only one more episode this season. I don't know how I will last until the next one.

    It's on HBO, Umbilical. It's based on a series of books by George R.R. Martin. It is both wonderful and frustrating.
