Game of Thrones: Red Wedding Reactions Compilation
The white tears and the red ones ran together until her face was torn and tattered, the face that Ned had loved. Catelyn Stark raised her hands and watched the blood run down her long fingers, over her wrists, beneath the sleeves of her gown. Slow red worms crawled along her arms and under her clothes. It tickles. That made her laugh until she screamed. “Mad,” someone said, “she’s lost her wits,” and someone else said, “Make an end,” and a hand grabbed her scalp just as she’d done with Jinglebell, and she thought, No, don’t, don’t cut my hair, Ned loves my hair. Then the steel was at her throat, and its bite was red and cold.
THEY HAVE SURPRISES
THEY PLAY (literally)
THEY LOVE EACH OTHER (
no maid in sight)
Ways in which Fellowes made Matthew’s death irrelevant to the plot (AKA Stovens you can go, I don’t give a fuck):
- The scene between Isobel and Branson. Her words make it clear that now is Tom the one who is the middle class/worker class man who shouldn’t be changed by Downton.
- Mary’s child is a boy. So the inheritance is safe and Mary can rule the freaking house until he comes of age.
- Robert accepts change. Also, Robert accepts Matthew. That’s the kiss of death.
