I got spoiled on this over a year ago but that wasn't enough to prepare me for how brutal it was. My stomach was in knots for most of the episode as I waited for this so I was relieved when it was over. Good thing the closing credits were silent as I needed a few moments to decompress.

The silent credits were an amazing symbol of respect... Until the HBO logo started honking it's own horn.

I had an idea this was coming for almost a year now, but that still wasn't enough to brace me for how it was done. The build up was unnerving.

I learned of it after I did a catching-up marathon of Season 1 and then began reading up on the background in the original books.

Definitely LOTR this show ain't.

The Gendry leeches were kinda dumb. Though was that in 3x08? I watched the most recent 3 in a row tonight.

Amazing episode. The deaths in the last few minutes were incredibly brutal.

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

Wow, that was simply...devastating.

The level of sheer cruelty was shocking and overwhelming. Stabbing Talisa multiple times in the stomach just after she and Robb saw the future with the unborn Eddward, Catelyn begging for her son's life, only to see him slain by a bannerman, quickly followed by her own death. All this on the treachery of hospitality, just as Arya was to reunite with her mother and brother.

And this thought comes to mind, one that I've been quietly carrying with me since the first episode: Bran didn't see his mother after his fall and he will never see her again.

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.
Agreed. I was shocked and sadden by Talisa's and Robb's murder, but Catelyn's final moments had me in tears and that's thanks to Michelle Fairley's hollowing performance.

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.

I was so stressed out watching this, knowing what was coming. And it was absolutely horrible. The only time I've wished I hadn't read the books because the shock would have been so huge. Very tightly done episode. Tragedy all round.

The storyline would have been much more effective if Robb's betrayal of his vow came at the prodding of Tywin's machinations as in the books, rather than his own stupidity. Considering they gutted most of the buildup, I think it was about as solid a climax as one could hope for. Dany's victory on the other hand felt almost like filler.

And I was still shocked that Caitlyn Tully slit the Frey wife's throat.

I have not read the books (nor do I intend to), so this was a complete shocking surprise, similar to the next to last episode of season 1.

I was hoping to see Lady Stark reunited with her kids, and also make peace with Jon Snow (espeically after the story she told about Jon Snow to Talisa). But alas that won't happen.

But I do love the unpredictability of the series. Great episode.

Then you sir, are watching the wrong show. I won't spoil anything, but I will say that in Game of Thrones, it's best not to get too attached to certain characters and to not expect things to turn out how it looks like they're being set up.

Personally, I've been dreading the red wedding since the start of the season and knowing it was coming didn't make it any less shocking.

*Really* looking forward to the next episode. Those who have read the books should be able to guess why.
