This is a discussion on A Game of Thrones TV series within the Book, Music, & Movie Reviews forums, part of the Topics of Interest category; LOL. I just posted the same video... but I did it in my spoiler tag because I didn't know how ...

    LOL. I just posted the same video... but I did it in my spoiler tag because I didn't know how the people who are still raw with emotion would take it. But yes, you are definitely not alone.

    As I mentioned in my spoiler tags, these reaction videos are kind of a cathartic experience for those of us who first experienced the Red Wedding in isolation. Nobody was videotaping us when we hurled our books across the room and stormed out of the house cursing and screaming. So it's good to see in these videos a glimpse of our own first reactions.

    I wish I would have recorded me and my brother as we watched it the first time. Of course I had no idea it was coming. But it would have been a bit funny to see some person on their knees screaming "JESUS WHYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!". Lol

    I wished I could have experienced the Red Wedding scene for real. Unfortunately I'd read spoilers (purposefully) after season 2 because I was just that damn impatient.

    P.S. - I absolutely love the Littlefinger hate.

    The distrust and hatred of Littlefinger and Roose Bolton is funny.. I don't approve of their decisions, but I love them as characters. Super realistic, competent, and play the game well. I find their loyalty isn't as clearly bad as people make it out to be though, only that they refuse to fight for the losing side. Roose Bolton decided to side with the Lannisters probably when Lord Karstark was killed (thus losing nearly half the northern forces), and Littlefinger siding against Ned Stark only when it was clear he was going to be executed inevitably.

    I'm kind of ambivalent towards Littlefinger. He amuses me, in spite of himself.

    Dream on! ;)
    (BTW, I love them as characters too... particularly Littlefinger)

    I agree that Bolton would not have conspired to overthrow the Starks without the Karstark defection. He does want to be on the winning side. However (and here come book spoilers)...
     
    The Boltons are always looking for an opportunity to overthrow the Starks. It's what they've been doing/attempting to do for thousands of years. Their sigil is the flayed man. The man they like best to flay is the Lord of Winterfell. The Karstark defection gave Bolton the opportunity to make his move, but he was never going to remain loyal to the Lord of Winterfell one minute longer than he had to be. Undying loyalty to their liege lord is not how the Boltons roll. And Roose is quite the typical Bolton.

    As for Littlefinger... The TV series implies that Littlefinger's aim from the start is to get Ned out of his way. Now, this is ambiguous because Littlefinger is so ambiguous. However, there are some interesting points from the books...
     
    Littlefinger lied about the dagger, probably with the aim of setting Stark against Lannister. It never belonged to Tyrion. Joffrey, btw, is the one who hired the assassin and gave him the dagger... which means that the dagger probably belonged to Robert. (I can't remember precisely who it did belong to, but it was in the stash of weapons that went North with the King).

    Littlefinger and Lysa conspired together to kill Jon Arryn. Lysa wanted to get Arryn out of the way so she could marry Littlefinger. Littlefinger wanted to get Arryn out of the way so that he could make his play for Catelyn. If I recall correctly, the calculatedly "hysterical" note that Lysa sent to Catelyn - and which served as the catalyst for forcing Ned to take on the position as Hand of the King - was suggested by Littlefinger.

    I won't discuss right now the details of Littlefinger's role in the future Sansa plot (though it is pretty creepy), but I will say that there is nothing ambiguous about what he does to Sansa's best friend, Jeyne Poole - whose only crime was being in the wrong place at the wrong time when a girl who knew Winterfell was needed for Littlefinger's aims. Jeyne Poole proves that Littlefinger truly has no limits.

    Whatever else he is, Littlefinger is not primarily a reactive character. He is a proactive character with long-term goals. I think the best analogy for Littlefinger is that he's a character playing a "long con." My suspicion is that his end-goal is the Iron Throne.
     
    But first he has to go through Winterfell.

    The only thing that slightly shocked me about the red wedding scene was how people acted like it was so shocking.

    Maybe I've been to too many gore and shock sites.

    Here is an interesting article about the scene though

    It wasn't the gore that was shocking.

    I suppose but fact that main chars got killed off so swiftly didn't shock me all too much either.

    Am I the only one giddy with anticipation over how people are going to react for the next kill? And the ones after?


    I can't wait.
