Seriously, how many times are the Starks gonna get ****ed before they do something about it?

Anybody else follow Joss Whedon on the Twitters? He tweeted something at 7:50pm that wasn't a specific spoiler about what happens to whom, but it pretty much ruined the surprise that something horrible was gonna happen. Big Whedon fan here (I'm even gonna go see Much Ado About Nothing on Friday), but I thought that was seriously effed up.
Anyway, perfect timing for this episode since I didn't think anything could make me sadder than the Kings' weekend of futility but then boom, Game of Thrones. I think I'm legitimately traumatized emotionally by some of the scenes tonight. Hoooly ****. So well done. I'm told that although this is arguably the biggest holy crap moment in the series so far, there are still a few more moments upcoming that are equally shocking. I can't even imagine how that's possible...
We're all counting on you, Arya. Finish those dancing lessons and start kicking some a**!

It's like, why even become attached to characters on this show? They're just going to die..

It's ok to cry Doc...
Now that we have all seen it...I think we can be specific now.
In the books Rob's wife was not part of the Red Wedding. She is another moving piece that I think Martin would admit they handled better on the show. And the Roose Bolton thing I don't remember so clearly...that was another well played part. And the book was more graphic. It was actually pretty brutal in that there was a lot of desecrating of bodies going on. And Cat has some weird grief self mutilation too. So, you guys got off easy. First time I watched I was actually relieved that it wasn't so bad, but the second time I watched I had a chance to judge it as it's own entitiy and it was pretty harsh. The addition of the stabbing directly of the baby was a particularly cruel twist. Without going into spoilers here, the Benioff/Weiss team is faced with a bit of an uphill battle from here on. This has been the most cohesive and character driven part of the story and for a little while moving forward, they don't have that strength to rely on. REALLY looking forward to seeing how they compensate and move stuff up/forward. I still think they are going to squeeze in a big bit in the finale...I don't think it is just going to be an epilogue to the events so far...so you probably want to watch live again.

JD: I here what you are saying but the 2nd half of the 3rd book will probably be covered NEXT season (4) on TV. It is TV season 5 that will be more at issue with what you mentioned.
Also, as to compare to the books: It's like any book to movie/TV thing...as long as you get the "feel" of the book you are doing just fine. It seems they did that last night...and have done throughout. To be nitpicky, the only real big difference here is Robb's wife character. In the books there is some question about what happens to her....

Are we spoilerly talking about last night now that it has aired?
If so, I hope I am not jumping ahead (since I haven't read the books), but did they kill the guy who got married? And I take it they killed ALL of the Stark army?

I don't feel very well right now

If they didn't actually show his death then I think he is still alive.
