If you're a Game of Thrones fan that hasn't seen the latest episode or finished the third book, be prepared for serious SPOILERS.
You guys... We have to discuss the Red Wedding.
I finished all the books last year and let me tell you... When I read the Red Wedding chapter, I threw the book across the wall. I was bawling, no joke. It was a serious WTF moment and I was in one of those grieving emotional loss of character funks that lasted for a few days... I didn't pick the book back up for a few weeks... I was that distraught.
So, knowing fully well what was coming, you would think I would be prepared.
WRONG. YOU CAN NEVER BE PREPARED FOR THE RED WEDDING.
I still fought back tears watching it, my friends being ten times more devastated since they had no idea it was coming. Of course someone died that wasn't suppose to (according to the books) and it's also worse in the books according to what the Frey's do to Grey Wind and Robb's bodies...
Can we also just take a second to acknowledge the fact that Lord Frey is Mr. Filch from Harry Potter? So basically all the torture he dreamed about at Hogwarts came true.
You're still a Squib you jerk.
But seriously, my fellow GoT fans and friends... I can joke because I've accepted the Red Wedding.
It doesn't mean I'm not still devastated. I am. So much. And it's ok. It's totally ok to be mourning over a fictional character. And believe me, you are sooooo not alone. One look on Tumblr and Facebook supports that. This is probably the most messed up thing that's ever happened in any book, tv show, or movie I have ever read/seen.
Just keep in mind that the North remembers. Winter is coming.
And hey... Daenerys is still alive so hooray for that!
