We finally got season 3 from the library. DH is now fully into the story, thank in part to the "bubbies" I'm sure, but also to Peter Dinklage and Tyrion's character. He had heard about the "die-off" in season 4, but was unprepared for season 3 and I had a hard time keeping mum. My palms were sweating and my heart pounding as I waited for the inevitable in episode 9 of season 3. Hard to keep quiet. Of course, dh was almost totally surprised. I got up from the couch at the conclusion of that episode and my knees were knocking. I was totally taken off guard in the books, and seeing it on the screen cemented the fabulous angst I felt about the events.
Speaking of killing of all the characters, with the books I'm left hanging and hanging and hanging at the end of book 5, and "no, not that character too" and I concoct all the reasons why not, but I did that with all the previous beloved characters and all my wishing and whining couldn't bring them back to life. This time I think I'm right, but.......
Yeah, never get attached to anyone in this series!
