Ah the red wedding. Thought it be the finale. Gave it above average instead of excellent. But could have gone either way.

I know all of this comes out of the books, but one thing ths show has going for it is the way it builds up a character each season only to give him a brutal And shocking bitch slap. Ned Stark, Tyrion Lannister, and, now, Robb Stark. At least Tyrion is still around.

Yes, my non-book reading friends. Come and feed me your delicious tears

Seriously, that was brutal. I knew it was coming, and I still had my mouth open in shock. When Rains of Castemer started playing, I got goosebumps. Damn. Just damn.

Sansa and the little Starks (and Jon Snow) are the only ones left now.

Even with reading all the books, and knowing this was coming, it was still so brutal. Michelle Fairley should get an Emmy nomination for this episode. That scream was just, so haunting.

I have to hand it to them...that was horrific no matter if you read the books or not. Talisa...wow, I didn't see that coming. The silent ending just leaves you shattered.

...but now I cannot WAIT for the next season, mwa ha ha ha ha.

Re: Game of Thrones 3.9 - "The Rains of Castamere" - Rate and discuss

I know that it isn't real, but, after reading what happened to Robb Stark's wife, and reading and seeing the aftermath of what happened to Sharon Tate, I may find it difficult not to associate one with the other. I am feeling trepidation about seeing this episode.

I never read the books, so it was a complete surprise to me. So for the people who have read the books, have their been many changes done to the story? How many books are there and are they worth reading having watched the show?
