Tonight you can tell who read the books and who didn’t. Those of us that read the books are going around either screaming “I knew it was coming, but it still hurts!” or making jokes to keep from laughing. Those that didn’t read the books are sitting in stunned silence or screaming “what just happened??”
Things that hurt me way more than the Red Wedding:
And that happened twice this episode. TWICE. That always killed me in the books, whenever they’d be close and not know it.
I don’t understand why they did this. Sure, they’re able to kill a baby, but a baby of a slave they never knew. They had to raise a puppy for YEARS and then kill it. That’s way more traumatic. And the part I remember most from the books regarding the Unsullied.

For Tony Stark’s big assembly with The Avengers last year, Robert Downey Jr. revealed he insisted on having actress Gwyneth Paltrow reprise her Iron Man role as well. “I was like, ‘You can’t just pretend that I got in a fight with Rhodey and Pepper’s out of town,’” Downey Jr. said during an Iron Man 3 press event. “They said, ‘You can’t have both of them,’ so I said, ‘All right, I need Pepper.’” Now withIron Man 3 fleshing out Tony and Pepper’s relationship, furthermore, “I thought, ‘OK, what do we want Gwyneth to be able to do this time?’. And how do we not have it so that she’s not just going (screamy voice), ‘Tony!’ And he’s not just going, ‘Where’s Pepper?’”
Though much speculated and fabricated by LEGO tie-in sets, Downey Jr. confirmed that during the Malibu attack sequence, Pepper [SPOILER] dons the Iron Man suit. “That’s the other thing that I have been pushing for,” added Downey. “She’s in great shape. She’s really game. That was the other thing, too: You have all these genre movies and you have these capable women. And they’re kind of like, ‘Oh my God. Some action is happening. I better step away or get caught in something over here.’ And I was kind of like, ‘Really? Is that where we’re at in the 21st century?’”

Even as a boy, Renly had loved bright colors and rich fabrics, and he had loved his games as well. “Look at me!” he would shout as he ran laughing through the halls of Storm’s End. “Look at me, I’m a dragon,” or “Look at me, I’m a wizard,” or “Look at me, look at me, I’m the rain god.”
The bold little boy with wild black hair and laughing eyes was a man grown now, one-and-twenty, and still he played his games.
