Fans react to Game of Thrones massacre

Fans post reaction videos on ‘hardest scene’ George R.R. Martin ever had to write


 

There was drinking, feasting and killing on the most recent episode of Game of Thrones. In case you missed it, Twitter is a-talk about the massacre at the feast.

George R.R. Martin calls it “the hardest scene I’ve ever had to write.” He added that he likes his “fiction to be unpredictable.”

It was precisely so — at least to judge by the G.O.T. reaction videos now being played and replayed on YouTube. (Warning: Much screaming and some swears.) Some questions: 1. Did these viewers not read the book? 2. Is this really how people watch TV? 3. What now?

Fans react to Game of Thrones massacre

  1. Some questions:
    1. Did these viewers not read the book?
    – the BOOKS, you mean… who’s read every piece of source material for every show or movie they’ve watched?

    2. Is this really how people watch TV?
    – sitting on thir sofas? Usually. If you’re not engaged in what you’re watching, watch something better

    3. What now?
    – what, you didn’t read the book?

  2. I felt angry. Whyyyyyyyyyyyy???????? Great masacre scene just a shame he was another Stark wronged. Grab my sword, I am going in…

  3. Me, I loved that ending. It throws away the whole dynamic of the Stark – Lannister war into a completely new direction. Because the Starks are not all dead. Arya, Bran, Sansa and Rickon Stark are very alive, although they are still young. And let’s not forget Ned Stark’s bastard, Jon Snow.
    The scene reminded me of Hitchcock’s Psycho, where the main character is killed halfway through the movie. That makes for intelligent and extremely entertaining tv.
    And I didn’t read the books.
