Last night my mind exploded and I felt like all five of my senses were overwhelmed with intensity. I thought that I was falling apart, and that I was really dead, and that I came back to life and then my boyfriend showed up and I thought he was God. And then, I felt life and realized that it was crazy for the two of us to meet and connect on such a spiritual level, and all that really matters is … I love him. He is constantly saving me from myself. I love him.
Please ignore the random overly obsessed fangirl reaction I’m about to give for a television show, I know…. I have no life. So I’ve been really annoyed with people saying that they aren’t going to watch the show anymore after the Red Wedding. I mean, I have literally been waiting for this moment for the past two seasons, ever since I read the books actually. Obviously, I know it’s a horrific event - lots of blood and gore galore - but this is one of my favorite chapters in the entire series to date. It changes the game in such a powerful way and it brings the focus back to the story, rather than the characters. After all, there are a still two other GIGANTIC books that come after this one so the story continues, life goes on.
But mostly I want to give major KUDOS to the directors of the the series, because 1) they portrayed the Red Wedding in a way that shocked me (even though I’ve read the series twice). I could never imagine in my head what they put on the television screen, and usually it’s the opposite with TV shows made from books. And 2) they timed this season SO WELL. Episode 9 ended with one of the most violent bloodbaths I’ve seen on television, but there is still one more episode left and I think most people have forgotten that in their shock. I almost laughed to myself at the end of the episode actually because I realized that the next episode will almost make up for it. Almost. Everyone had to watch characters they were invested in die, but now we get to see other characters die and everything is almost righted in the world.
