Not sure if I want to carry on watching this show anymore. Just seems like a waste of an entire season of their storyline to have such a brutal ending.
I'm not a fan of overly violent shows or movies, and I think this is enough for me.
Funny you said that - I told my partner exactly the same thing.
He has read the books and he has warned me there is still a lot more to come and not to expect bad things to happen to bad people. Even worse, he has hinted at the general "soap opera" nature of the series with storylines spinning out with nary a chance of resolution being possible.
I don't know what scares me more - more vile stuff happening to good people or AGoT becoming "Home and Away".
It all smacks to me of Martin being a sadist/attention whore who wants to just be all counter and shock his readers/audience - "Look at me! I can write a book where good DOES NOT triumph and evil sometimes wins!"
I wonder if this will affect the ratings for season four?
