All The Best Tweets About Last Night’s Game Of Thrones…

For some comic relief, browse through these. Mrs. Horror Boom actually wrote some of them down in case we run out of new, amusing ways to express rage and pain. Still wondering where GRRM is hiding out – I wouldn’t be brave enough to go out in public for a week or so, in fact I might even hire a bodyguard temporarily (and hope they weren’t into GOT/ASOIAF).

Game of Thrones – ‘The Rains of Castamere’: Initial Thoughts (SPOILERS, What A Shocker)

“That was truly, truly disturbing… For about 15 minutes, the show’s writers, actors and directors transformed HBO into a bloody, unsettling horror movie.” – Baltimore Sun  (we fucking agree)


The Cultural Labyrinth


These are some initial thoughts and reactions to the events of the closing moments of ‘The Rains of Castamere’. A more detailed review of the episode as a whole will be posted later in the week.


So, it happened. Regarded as the climatic centerpiece of the third novel in the series, A Storm of Swords, The Red Wedding has a reputation as perhaps the single most devastating moment of the saga so far. Purportedly, this was the scene which showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss used to sell the entire concept of the show to HBO.

The Red Wedding makes you question everything you thought you knew about how this series is structured. Game of Thrones as a unique ability to make you believe you know where things are heading before veering off…

Game of Thrones: Episode 9, Season 3 “The Rains of Castamere” Review (Spoilers. Again)

Did it really “fade to black”? It seemed like a smash-cut to me, but then again, I wasn’t exactly in a lucid, rational state of mind at the time…

<<SPOILER ALERT: Do not read this review if you intend to watch this episode of Game of Thrones and have not yet done so.>>

In the penultimate episode of Season Two of Game of Thrones, HBO presented us with easily the best episode of that entire season, and in my opinion of either season to that point. With tonight’s episode, the penultimate one of the current, third season, they come close to doing so again. What with the resolution of two major plot lines (which, as is the nature of this story, actually open up several more possibilities), and the greater focus on fewer stories, tonight’s episode is the best of Season Three. It does not, however, quite live up to the high standards set by “Blackwater” last year.

Queen in the North on “The Rains of Castamere” AKA Soundtrack of Pain and Suffering

A really great (and funny) piece/reaction by a fellow Fan Girl (who doesn’t have pneumonia and is thus way more coherent than Mrs. Horror Boom right now).

Game of Thrones: The Rains of Castamere (Surprise Surprise: SPOILER ALERT!)

We knew too, but didn’t expect the massacre the kick off the way it did… funny, having a little trouble falling asleep tonight!


The Skinny from the Fatty

Well. Having read the novels, I knew what was coming tonight.




Holy shit. Seeing it is completely different. I cannot imagine the pants being soiled this evening by non-readers of the best novel series of the last 50 years.


King Robb and his army travel to The Twins to marry his Uncle Edmure off to the Frey’s- whom Robb insulted by marrying Talisa. All is made well by this new arrangement….Until

Frey, and Roose Bolton, betray them. Talisa is stabbed repeatedly in the womb- killing her, and Baby Ned. Robb’s army is destroyed and he, and mother Catelyn, are filled with arrows. Roose Bolton stabs Robb in the heart and Catelyn’s throat is slit.
