what else can you say?
props to book readers for not spoiling the Red Wedding before now. I sort of feel sorry for them, knowing exactly what was coming, not sharing in the utter disbelief.
all this time, I had assumed the Red Wedding already happened; I thought it was the wedding between Tyrion and Sansa... you know, because they're both red-heads.
so this was definitely a shock in terms of the storyline, but I personally knew something was fishy a couple of episodes ago.
I didn't recognize the tune for 'Rains of Castamere' when the band started playing it.
and I didn't know why Catelyn Stark was so worried when she heard it. I really failed to make the connection.
BUT I noticed when Lord Bolton freed Jamie Lannister. I'm not sure why more people didn't understand what a big clue this was or why there are so many overreactions on Twitter.
it was a pretty serious clue and this was several episodes prior to the Red Wedding.
Bolton was supposedly allied with Robb all along.
so why is he releasing the Kingslayer back to their enemies? what's in it for the Bolton's? because I remembered this incident I pretty much figured out what was happening the moment the bedding ceremony was finished. as soon as Tully and his new bride were carried away THEY LOCKED THE DOORS.
something is about to go down.
Catelyn Stark's reaction (or complete lack-there-of) when she slit the neck of the young wife - awaiting her own death - was perhaps the single most powerful moment of the entire series.
