Red Wedding reactions caught on tape
By Ours is the Fury on in Media.

One of the best parts about being a long-time reader of A Song of Ice and Fire is knowing when the big moments are coming, and anticipating the emotional aftermath for new fans. Video reactions to the Red Wedding from last night’s episode of Game of Thrones are now popping up all over youtube. What some of them may lack in quality, they more than make up for in entertainment.


Ours is the Fury: More great reactions will undoubtedly turn up throughout the day. Feel free to link them in comments!

    The whole point about a reaction video is that you’re invested in the story and characters.

    The last video is pointless in this regard.

    Love watching these! Great idea for a post for these nail-biting, game-changing moments! Although I would like to present that I acted like a smug bookreader, I was as keyed up as the non-book readers at our house and actually gave a “HOLY SHIT” shout out, hand-to-mouth-moment at the Talisa attack. Such a smart lead in moment.

    My husband’s non-reader reaction waited until the credit roll (which I loved it being silent), when he turned to me and said, “I now hate this show.” Which, of course, means they nailed it.

    The first few videos are great. They get less interesting as you go down the line. The worst is the one with the young girl who HAS NEVER SEEN THE SHOW BEFORE.

    I couldn’t care any less what someone who has not invested any time in these characters thinks.

    It was a fantastic episode. As a book-reader it missed some moments such as Cat clawing her face and Grey Wind taking out a bunch of Frey’s. And as a book-reader, Talisa’s death was just horrific.

    But goddamn, Michelle Fairley deserves an Emmy for her perfomance in this. Simply staggering.

    Let’s see how the Unsullied react when they show Grey Wind’s head on Robb’s shoulders and if Cat is thrown into the river. It was a disgusting result of the Red Wedding.

    These videos are a testament to the greatness of the show and to the incredible work of all involved. From the creator to the writers to the actors, director, producers, sound engineers, editors et al, they should beam with pride watching this stuff.

    They’ve made something that will be remembered for decades and beyond.

    RhymeswithWeak,

    From comments on TWOP forums, a few of the Unsullied have mused that The Blackfish had something to do with it before he walked out right before all the s*** went down. But the majority seem to think he just chose a really good time to go take a leak.

    They also seem to be split 50/50 on whether or not Edmure is still alive.

    As I wrote in the recap, I think this is the only way I can “enjoy” the episode.

    I wonder if there will be similar ones to when (big spoilers) Tywyn or Joffrey are killed, as in “hell yeah”. I was bored through AFFC, but when Cersei’s plan backfired, I shouted like some kind of hooligan.

    These are great–thanks! I felt so horrible for laughing at what the girl said at the end of the first video. Owned indeed. Poor Starks.

    Yhamm,

    Best one by a mile–thanks so much! Yep, she’s curled up in the fetal position by the end, which was pretty much my reaction as well when I first read the chapter. Loved how her dog wanted to comfort her throughout.

    Also, Michelle Fairley deserves every prize known to man. She gave me goosebumps every time it was time for her part in these videos. EVERY. EFFING. TIME. So incredibly moving and awful and tragic and GAH. I’m still having a visceral reaction and it’s been, what? Over sixteen hours since it aired? Bloody marvelous.

    Just confirms that D&D’s decision to follow through with GRRM’s vision was the right move and they have just upended everyone’s expectations for the show. For the better. Take no prisoners.

    For non-readers, welcome aboard. The ride’s just getting started.

    i was initially excited to see what people’s reactions to this were going to be, but after seeing how people have reacted so viscerally to the events, i feel like this is a bit too voyeuristic too soon, even if it is fictional, we should not derive joy out of someone’s suffering.

    then again, this is just fiction. we need to get over it.

    right?

    The young woman who cried out “No, Robb!” and clamped her hand to her mouth in video six broke my heart. It’s like we know and love these characters so much….

    It’s really strange to watch these. I’m a bookwalker, so I knew what was coming, but I still found myself putting my hand over my mouth and crying out in a visceral reaction.

    So what is it it that makes us watch these truly wrenching reactions? It’s a thrill seeing the surprise up close and personal. A macabre thrill, albeit. Some of the reactions are truly horrific. Especially since we can only hear Michelle Fairley’s throaty, hoarse pleas for the life of her son. It makes it all the more impactful. She is truly a great actress and I hope she wins some awards for this episode.

    It’s strange to see some of the younger kids in these videos really taken by surprise. You feel bad for them, as if, like your traditional fantasy, they were thinking, No, they’re not really going to kill our “heroes” are they…?

    Such is the world of A Song of Ice & Fire.

    I do wonder, however, how people will respond to the aftermath. Which character will anchor the story going forward? Who do we root for? Who else can be killed?

    As we all know, Arya answered the question already…Anyone can be killed.

    On the third video, notice how his dog senses he is upset and rolls on his back trying to get attention. LOL And the father’s comment about killing the “dogs” too!

    I wish I had gotten my unsullied boyfriend’s reaction on tape. Afterward he said he was going to have nightmares and it was my fault (I talked him into watching the show with me at the beginning of the season and he looks forward to watching it every week now). This is a big deal because he is a firefighter and EMT and he sees pretty gruesome stuff all the time. D&D knocked it out of the park.

And, each time The Rains of Castamere started to play my heart would thump so hard, like boom doom boom doom, it felt like the drums were still there! Man, big-ups to D&D, HBO, Michelle, Richard, Oona and of course the evil mastermind GRRM. These Reaction Videos just show how much so many people care about these characters. What are the BIG spoilers still left to shock the world?

    Seriously, if Unsullied, DO NOT REVEAL SPOILERS:

    -PURPLE WEDDING
    -Uncat… Pretty good one.
    -Finding out if a Lannister does really shit gold.
    -Jon, ADWD

    I secretly hoped a compilation of sorts would appear here. My eyeglasses
    steamed up even though I viewed the episode last night, a voyeuristic
    perception of the mass murder only intensified my horror. The videos
    are priceless at catching newbie viewers and seasoned veterans of the
    affair. Honestly I had no preconceived expectations of mine own
    reaction, I just figured GoT wouldn’t get it right, or illicit a less than
    real quality to the proposed scene. I was wrong, it was worse. As
    observed by the above video clips, the sound and visualization of this
    grizzly affair could only provoke shock and extreme emotion. I was as
    speechless as the newbies.

    With the myriad of emotional responses, I expected some screams, but the
    nervous twitches of the males peaked my curiosity as did those whom
    watched with their dogs.

    My favorite response was , ” I didn’t see that coming ” ” Oh…oh….oh….that
    takes care of the entire family ” ” There’s nobody left but the Lannisters ” ” Oh
    crap….. wtf…why ?……

    Why indeed. Now others may relate to my first ever read by author George RR Martin.
    Alas, I’m a virgin no more.

    Needless to say, Michelle Fairley earned a best performance bid , no competition.

    Then she wouldn’t speak to me for about an hour because I didn’t warn her ahead of time. She’s starting to recover.

    My favorite is… marked for spoiler because I don’t know if ppl want to look at tweets before they column appears on WIC… not a show spoiler… “Game of Thrones will really surprise people next year when in the ninth episodes they kill off actual viewers. #got”

    Thanks for posting this, I’m not a twitter person, yet these reads are awesome.

    King DBC,

    I’d add Drogon’s reurn to Meereen and Cersei’s walk of shame to that list, but yeah, it’s true that AFFC and ADWD lack a lot of shocking moments like this one. However, them being completely set-up books means that TWoW will have some ass-kicking moments. Let’s hope it gets released… someday, I guess.

    She came full circle, from supposedly not wanting to watch anymore to pressing on. It’s her decision to keep watching that makes it special. Such was the depth of her response.

    Wow. Thanks for posting these. I think my favorite is the Dad — and my favorite part is when he is taking stock of which Starks are left — how worried he is that they can’t “generate an army”.

    That’s why we do what we do! Thanks again for posting.

    Okay, first, ^^ Bryan Cogman! **fangirling**

    And second, my favorite was also fleece blanked on the floor girl. And her dog was totally worried about her, so cute.

    I wanted to to get a reaction video of my lord husband but it was just too dark. He was silent until the end, and he said, “Fuck the Freys, fuck the Boltons, and FUCK TYWIN LANNISTER.” and then he wiped a tear away. Love that guy :)

    From a Sullied viewer who reacted in much the same way when I first read the infamous chapter, thank you for all of your hard work!

    You can notice a difference on these reactions and Ned’s death reactions. Back then, people were shocked, but a beheading is something we actually see happening in some shows on ocasion. Now that reactions from yesterday’s episode… people were utterly horrified. It’s a horrible, horrible scene, and Talysa’s death was totally unnecessary

    Not a during show reaction, but a video from a non book reader after the fact.

    He’s a big guy with a New York accent, references Godfather AND Voltron, and has some ideas about whats to be done with the Lannisters that are comedy gold.

    Definitely a banner woman of Winterfell and Stark family supporter. I’d hate to
    see her reaction to Ned’s beheading. She’s obviously hell bent on revenge and
    most likely hooking up with Arya when she finds her location. I couldn’t
    watch the entire clip, she was starting to mimic Catelyn Stark’s outraged
    onscreen scene. Honestly I’d forgotten how likely peoples reaction to
    these events, not just sadness but anger and outrage…..at everything….Frey,
    Lannister…..GRRM . *>*

    As a book-reader I admittedly took some sadistic pleasure in watching reaction videos of Unsullied seeing the RW on GoT. But that’s nothing compared to the sick fucks (book readers every one of them) filming their unitiated friends going into shock over the massacre. That’s just cruel.

    My favourite so far–great quality, has all the disbelief and nervous anxiety, but the guy’s reaction at the end is really what makes it! I hope and suspect his sentiment is the one that many will eventually default to, after the initial shock and despair has faded.

  1. [...] in the last days of her ambitious warrior-king Agamemnon. For those who did not, well, there are various articles about their jilted and horrified [...]

  2. [...] I think it’s fair to say that most book-reader fans of the series have been looking forward to “The Rains of Castamere” this season, if only to see non-book reader reactions to the Red Wedding. For example, http://winteriscoming.net/2013/06/red-wedding-reactions-caught-on-tape/ [...]

  3. [...] El segundo highlight ocurre en el noveno episodio con la Boda Roja (el mejor episodio de la serie para muchos), donde Walder Frey traiciona a Robb, matándolo a él, a su esposa, a su madre y a parte de sus tropas. Uno de los episodios más brutales de Game of Thrones, no se puede comparar con la batalla de Aguasnegras justamente por ser una batalla, mientras que la Boda Roja es la masacre de varios personajes que ya tienen apartado un lugar en el corazón de sus seguidores, tanto así que muchas personas literalmente gritaron de horror al ver el episodio.
