13 Times Book Readers Flipped Out Watching "Game Of Thrones" Last Night

"The High Sparrow" basically confirmed Cleganebowl. Sort of. Spoilers for A Song of Ice and Fire.

Posted on

1. When we saw that suspiciously oversize "corpse" in Qyburn's laboratory twitch.

CLEGANEBOWL: CONFIRMED! Get hype.

2. When Littlefinger revealed that he planned to marry Sansa to Ramsay Bolton. WHAT?

In the books, Ramsay married a girl named Jeyne Poole who is pretending to be ARYA Stark. Show-Sansa can't catch a break in terms of awful weddings.

3. Especially because horrible, horrible things happen to Ramsay's wife in the book and we don't want that to happen to Sansa.

Please no.

Please no.

4. When Tyrion skipped over an entire book's worth of plot and wound up in Volantis eight months too early.

So we're not going to meet Jon Connington? What about Young Griff?

5. When Jon chopped Janos Slynt's head off without the "you'll hang for this" fakeout.

I guess we're not getting that "Edd, fetch me a block" line we've been waiting for.

6. But we did get The Nod from Stannis, so that almost made up for it.

Stannis the Mannis approves of you, Lord Snow.

7. When we still didn't get a good look at the Wildlings, and our hopes of seeing Val dwindled into nothingness.

8. When Margaery and Tommen got it on and we felt weird about it because book-Tommen is 9 years old.

9. When Tommen sort of grew a pair and suggested that Cersei leave King's Landing.

We didn't expect that level of assertiveness, even if it's fueled by Margaery.

10. When the High Septon was found in a brothel and walked naked through the streets.

That was a heavy bit of foreshadowing.

That was a heavy bit of foreshadowing.

11. Also when the High Septon survived this episode, because he's supposed to be smothered in his sleep.

I guess we're not getting the Kettleblacks this season. Or Taena Merrywether, but that remains to be seen.

12. When the High Sparrow was a kindly old man doling out soup instead of a total hard-ass.

He seems so...nice. Too nice.

13. And when Brienne opened up about her past to Podrick, who is basically a child in the books and doesn't gain her trust until never.

Their friendship is the best change from book to screen :)
