Warning: This contains spoilers for Episode Nine: The Rains of Castamere!
I really wasn’t looking forward to last night’s episode, in fact I didn’t even start watching it until some time past three a.m. Many hours after I normally watch it, but quite frankly I was in no hurry to suffer through the Red Wedding again.
“Imagine how the poor people who haven’t read the book are going to react” C.S. remarked. I started to laugh, then checked myself. I told him when I was actually reading the scene in the book I was screaming “NO NO NO” in my head, then started reading on maniacally hoping to get to a part in the book where it suddenly wasn’t true, and then spent at least half a day wandering around in a daze, swinging between bouts of rage and anguished grief.
It can be somewhat noisy having two avid readers in the household. While I tend to burst into angry tears C.S. goes the bellowing route.
You know I actually think it would be worse seeing it for the first time rather than reading it. If the reactions from fans uploaded to You Tube are any indication…we feel your pain. You poor, poor things.
