Fans including a few celebrities who watched HBO’s Game of Thrones on Sunday night are being reported by USA Today to have expressed their shock and confusion over a scene from the series last night that is also being dubbed as one of the most gruesome scenes in TV history.
It was during a scene from the Red Wedding episode depicting a celebration feast which turned into a bloodbath that shocked viewers last night.
Ozzy Osbourne’s son Jack expressed his feelings on Twitter writing, “#gameofthrones are you f***ing kidding me????!!!”
Actress Jamie Murray wrote on her Twitter account, “NOOOO #GAMEOFTHRONES WTF!?!?! How could you? Why, why, why???”
One fan who knew the story and expected the Red Wedding was going to be bad said, “So that was even worse than I imagined. #RedWedding @GameOfThrones.”
Another fan said, “What a wedding! I’m still in shock. @GameOfThrones, I think you just gave me a post-traumatic stress disorder.”
Musician Ed Sheeran wore: “I dont know what just happened in game of thrones. i’m in shock.”
Joe Jonas wrote on his Twitter account, “This is how I feel about the game of thrones episode just now…. What. Just. Happened.”
The gruesome scene showed the betrayal by the King of the North which showed a mother watching her pregnant daughter get gruesomely stabbed in her stomach multiple times killing her and the mother’s unborn grandchild.
Then creator David Benioff and HBO writers took it one step further when the mother Catelyn Star, played by Michelle Fairley took the King’s wife as hostage slicing her throat until the mother was shown getting her throat sliced by a sword from ear to ear with a huge amount of blood gushing from her neck unlike anything ever seen before on TV.
Even Scottish actor Richard Madden who played Robb Stark, the husband of the bride, during the Red Wedding episode said filming the scene wasn’t easy for him.
“Robb Stark with his dead queen in his arms and a stomach ripped open and blood pumping out of that,” Madden said. “You know his mother is getting her throat slit — it was a really disturbing day. I left the set and went straight to the airport and got on a plane because I didn’t want to be there anymore. I was the crazy man on the flight crying the whole way to London.”
