Red Wedding on Game of Thrones - Spoilers!

I am finding it really quite funny that so many people are so shocked by the Red Wedding episode of Game of Thrones on HBO. I read the series that George R.R. Martin wrote that the show is based on (quite closely may I add) and it happened very similarly in there, too.

Yes, Robb Stark dies. Catelyn Stark dies. Everyone pretty much at the wedding dies. Oh, and Arya Stark never makes it to see her family before they died. She ends up becoming a little fireball across the sea though, but that hasn’t happened yet in the show. Robb doesn’t come back from the dead, but guess who will? Catelyn – but if it is anything like the book series of it, she is grotesque and can’t talk very well because her throat was slashed.

People claiming on various social media platforms about how much they hate the show now and are going to boycott it is ridiculous. Honestly, you should have known from the first season that the writer doesn’t care to save his beloved characters – remember Ned Stark?

There is still hope for this season though. There is another wedding in which the groom dies that will be coming up very shortly. His death has been a long time coming, and I can’t wait to never have to see him in the series again. I just hope they don’t prolong it to next season.

For more spoilers and to save yourself any upcoming shock and disappointment of your beloved characters, I suggest reading the books or at least checking out the Game of Thrones Wiki
