'Red Wedding' Reactions are Worth Watching
June 9, 2013  | By Al Mannarino
 


Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin is not one to shy away from torturing his characters, but his fans? Last Sunday, legions of viewers tuned in to the episode, "Red Wedding." Those who have read the books on which the show is based knew what was coming; those who didn't experienced a magnitude of emotions ranging from shock to sadness to outrage in the show's final minutes. (And if you haven't yet seen the show, and are spoiler-sensitive, do us all a favor and don't push "play.") Several savvy Thrones fans captured their non-reading friends' reactions to the event, which resulted in a compilation tape that even Martin found entertaining. After viewing excerpts from the clip above on a recent episode of Conan, Martin laughed and quipped: "I saw one of them saying, in a comment, 'Now you know why your nerdy friends were really depressed 13 years ago.'" So, now, who's ready for the show's Sunday season finale?
